No problem guys, just wanted

No problem guys, just wanted to give some feedback from various GPUs.

Keep up the great work !

I also got my first WUs on

I also got my first WUs on windows and hope the results will help to optimise the new app.

Yeah.  Now I have 2 900

Yeah.  Now I have 2 900 series NVIDIA GPUs sitting idle (one Windows 10, one Ubuntu Linux).  Can't wait for them to get back into action.

I, too, have just this minute picked up some Beta 1.15 FGRPB1G Units for my Windows XP Pro x64 system with GTX-760 card!!!  Smile

Can't wait to get through my BRP4G Units and start crunching the 1.15 FGRPB1G Units!!!  May not happen for a day or so, with the large number of BRP4G Units in queue, though.

Just received one of these

Just received one of these tasks. It is using a full CPU core and hardly utilizing the GPU at all. I'll wait for it to finish to see if GPU utilization ramps up toward the end of the task, but so far these seem a good candidate for running multiple tasks simultaneously.

I've already modified my app_config.xml file for this to 0.50 CPU and 0.50 GPU to run two Units at a time.  My XP system is an AMD A6-6400K dual core APU with Radeon HD Graphics.  The Radeon is unused, as I'm making use of the EVGA GTX-760.

I concur with Matt.  I'm seeing almost no GPU usage.  Fluctuates between 0-11% of GPU usage. Going to let these run and see how long it takes. GPU speeds are baseline. Usually when running the GPUs I will see them boost with usage. I may try running more than 1 at a time once I see how they do.

Same for me running two GTX 750 Ti's under Win7 64-bit.  Each GPU is supported by a lightly-loaded core of an i7-4790.  But each 1.15 FGRPopencl-Beta-nvidia work unit takes almost 3 hours.  The GPU load varies from 0 to maybe 60%, but I would guess the average load is under 20%. 

I will wait until the released version comes along, and meanwhile do them on my GTX 960 under Linux (10 minutes each).

I have also received a few

I have also received a few dozen of these 1.15 FGRPopencl-Beta-nvidia tasks for win 7 x64 machine with two GTX970s. They are all failing immediately with "Access is denied" error, here's one of them: https://einsteinathome.org/task/595043112

Well actually the first one failed with -1073741790 (0xC0000022) Unknown error code and all the others failed with the error above.

The driver is 361.91 and Seti OpenCL tasks run without a problem.

Well, my initial estimated

Well, my initial estimated run times were quite off. Actually it takes from 3.3 to 5.3 hours. Quite a difference from times seen with full GPU tasks on Linux.
