Was looking at some of my wingman's results and was astonished at  the times for the gtx1060 3 and 6 gb compared to my 1070Ti that crunches 24/7

 

They have 2x the speed!!!!

https://einsteinathome.org/workunit/429060246  Win 7 with 3 GB and comparable system almost 2x as fast

 

https://einsteinathome.org/workunit/429055692 Win 10 with 6 GB - again, 2x fast as my gtx 1070 ti

 

will try driver change from 441.28 to the 441.41 or whatever is out at NVidia. don't think that is the problem.

Did notice something else:

 

My results show the following info at the bottom of the task page.

FPU status flags:  PRECISION

The other systems show things like

FPU status flags:  COND_1 COND_0 PRECISION or FPU status flags:  COND_1 PRECISION

However, some of my results also show "COND_1" and googleing "OpenCL COND-1 PRECISION" is not helpful.

Are your cards running more

Are your cards running more than one task at once? Perhaps 3x ? 1060's might be running 1x. My 1060 has been completing Vela tasks 1x in 2000-2400 sec recently.

One at a time.  Except for

One at a time.  Except for Milkyway project have not seen an improvement big enough to run two.   However, I am and have been running the "studio driver" as I do not play games and want stability. Maybe I need to get the gamer driver?.

Are you running and CPU based

Are you running any CPU based BOINC projects?  If so make sure you are not maxing out your CPU.  In addition to having enough CPUs for all of my BOINC projects I leave at least 1 CPU for my OS.

Do not run any CPU tasks and

Do not run any CPU tasks and I have an i9.  One of my wingman has 32 threads, I have only 20 else not much of a difference between the two other than my 1070ti supposedly outclasses the 1060.  Something is wrong.   Installing yesterdays nvidia driver release but not using the gamer one.

[EDIT] At one time it was possible to run one app using both GPUs.  I don't think this project supports that feature.
