Timelord,

Win 7 x64

i7-4790K

GTX 1080

When I was running BRP4G, I ran 3 at a time and and they completed in about 30 minutes, so average about 10 minutes per WU.

Well, utilizing the GPU 100% is our goal. If you're using the same GPU for desktop rendering you want to disable GPU computation while you're actively using your computer. The BOINC manager allows you to set that.

I'm suddenly not getting any FGRP tasks.

That looks like it isn't requesting any FGRP tasks. I have these enabled in preferences, it worked a few minutes ago.

Perhaps because of this: ?

I wouldn't like to disable computation. The BRP4G app utilize my GPU about 70% so everything is running smoothly so I can run it nearly whole day (except when watching HD video). I think an app which is running in the background quietly but a little bit slowly is better than which is max. out that hardware and causes headache for the user. It's not possible to implement an option in the preferences page which we can limit workload?

That's a BOINC thing to implement in general. Until that feature arrives you might want to test this 3rd party tool (for Windows only). Please note that we've neither tested it nor do we support it in any way, so your mileage may vary.

If you see that boinc is using multiple tasks for the GPU,  you can disable a specific device by setting in cc_config.xml <ignore_ati/cuda_dev>X</ignore_ati/cuda_dev>. Just running a single WU at once helps a lot to reduce lags. If you have an integrated GPU, you may block it this way.

Just a single WU is running and utilize my GTX 750 Ti GPU @ 100%. iGPU isn't enabled.

@COD3R: your tasks longs 1230

@COD3R: your tasks longs 1230 seconds, which means that the longest OpenCL kernel should not take more than 70 ms. 

So every 70 ms max, the GPU is released for other tasks like displaying something. I would suggest to check you run boinc not as root user, and if you do a top, you see 19 in the column NI (nice- 4th column).

When I use my APU (which is slower than your GTX 750 Ti), I barely see lags when scrolling and I can still watch videos. (and I am using this app for quite a long time since I wrote the OpenCL kernels)
