I'm up to 4 tasks on a GTX-980 and still only at 65%-75%... BUT, I can't run anything else because it dramatically decreases the GPU utilization if I do. These new tasks are VERY CPU intensive...

I kinda thought the whole point of using a GPU was to offload the CPU and increase speed... maybe we need more than 21 Kernels?

I'm running 3 tasks at the same time on a GTX-980 with Linux and still only get 54%-62% even when not running anything else...

Maybe I will try 4 tasks... and yes, Kernels set to 21...

EDIT: This is better with 4 tasks...

Ummm, I am just getting an older system going and it crapped out a couple times and I think it may be or get banned.

No tasks are showing in BOINC on my end,, did a BOINC update, your system shows 16 error and 16 in progress... I think it got glitched somehow...

Anyway, the host ID is 4878

Can you reset it, correct the "In Progress" data and unban it if it is banned? It is setup with 2 GTX 580 cards (yes old I know) and an I7-950 on X58 mobo.

Right now both GTX580's are running PrimeGrid tasks flawlessly... seems like the hardware and drivers are correct now.

Thanks!
