I'm guessing the longer ranges are from people who are running 3-4 WU at the same time, and/or are trying to run cpu work units at the same time through various ways of tricking BOINC Manager into running more tasks than you do threads.

I have been running Einstein on my 480s for the last week.  Running 2 tasks concurrently, I average 16.7 mintes per task. (635k ppd)

 

It is difficult to parse run-times on any of the GPU projects that benefit from running multiple tasks or custom configs.  Fully optimized GPU apps, like GPUGrid, make it easy to make a definitive statement on efficiency, since there are not really any tweaks that a user can do to increase output.

Any way to modify the app_config to only use CPU's needed by the GPU? I can;t seem to find anything, and I'm running a 7990 in my 2P (12c/24t) rig but would like to set this up to run some Zika or Cosmo for the Pentathlon.

Depending on what version of BOINC you have you could also use the other projects app_config files to set project_max_concurrent.

 

Edit - the config Emoga posted some months back may already be similar to what you want.

Just uncheck use CPU, on your account page for Einstein. That way you only get GPU tasks. After you change your preferences on the Einstein website, don't forget to hit update on BOINC manager, so it can pull down the new changes you made to your preferences.

Changed CPU usage to 25% since I'm running 18 CPU tasks.

@4thKor On the Einstein page go to Account->Preferences->Project, and then you will see the section where you can tell Einstein not to send CPU work.

Thanks. Found it. I hate their website.

I don't know why they thought they needed to re-invent the wheel, but many of the newer project sites are coming up with their own format, rather than using the standard format that is part of the boinc_server code.

Setting up some linux machines for this - any known issues with Nvidia's v8 cuda SDK? (that would suggest v7 is a better choice...)
