I noticed the runtimes sky rocketed on my PCs. None have validated yet. Are they still the same credit?

I went thru some top PCs and this one has 10-20x increase in last few tasks and same credit.

Both users that crunch the task get credit and pair discovery.

I have two GPU's in my PC, both nVidia. One a GTX1080 the other a Quadro K2000.
How can I set up to run two or more tasks on the GTX1080 but just one on the K2000?
Right now the K2000 is at 90%, but the GTX1080 is at 8-12%, based on GPU-Z.

You can install Boinc again in a different directory and then exclude one gpu from each of them , then you can tweak the settings individually.

BOINC only needs to be installed once. Not sure it can be installed again. The client can be started multiple times with separate data directories using the same boinc.exe,

I was getting 3-5% util with 1 task. Not even enough load to make the card boost. They were around 1400-1500 MHz for Pascal cards less than 40c air cooled. I only ran 1 task...

BOINC Manager splits by processing time. It doesn't know how much credit a certain task will receive. Also the resource share number is a long term thing. It won't average out the crunch time right away.

Will there be more pairs to be found to count towards the badge?

I was worried too. I woke up with no tasks but an update downloaded more. I later found 33 invalids and 25 aborted. Now I see it was from 1.12.

Okay. I have a 64 bit system and a Ubuntu Boot Disk running Linux-x64 64 bit OS. If I boot under that OS and download BOINC for Linux then should I see tasks to load and run for Amicable? Thanks.


Your CPU has 64bit support so I believe so. I
