I would like to defer loading of the next GPU task until the previous one has actually completed. At present BOINC is loading the next GPU task when the previous one is around 85% complete.

With a slow GPU this further reduces the already slim chance of a task being a prime finder rather than a prime verifier, viz., by the time the system starts the pre-loaded next task somebody else has often already finished it.

I have "store 0 days of work" and "store an additional 0 days of work" set, but that doesn't seem to product the desired effect.

On the preferences page, make it so that "resource share" becomes 0%. This will turn PrimeGrid into a backup project, which will make it so that it only downloads tasks when it has absolutely nothing else to do.

Thanks for the suggestion. Under Projects / Properties it appears there's no way to change the resource share parameter ... possibly because I only have one BOINC project.

You can change this parameter on PrimeGrids website page under your account -->edit preferences. And don't forget to update the new preferences from the BOINC manager.

Kind regards FXH
