Controlling Task Assignment to 2nd GPU only
« on: December 31, 2019, 02:19:36 pm »
Hi,
when I am gaming the first GPU is mostly being used for that and would prefer to not have a Boinc GPU task running on it at the same time.

The only way I have found to do this is,

1. suspend pending GPU tasks

2. allow 2 GPU tasks to run and then suspend the one on (d0) and allow the one on (d1) to continue (d1 is set as PhysX GPU).

Maybe there is a way to control this in the BoincTasks settings and if so please point me in the right direction.

Thanks

You might be able to do that in the NVIDIA Sytem settings to exclude one GPU when an exe is running.
Another option is to disable one GPU in the BOINC  cc_config.xml settings
