Hi all! I'm new to Einstein but been on Boinc for a long while...

Downstairs, I have two 970s and they are both getting jobs.

Upstairs, I have a 2070S and a 750ti and only the 2070S is getting work. 

All the jobs I've looked at run under 2Gb so I think they'd fit on the 750ti... Is it just too far behind the times to do Einstein?

Thank you! Ed.T

do you have the use all gpus

do you have the use all gpus flag set n your cc_config.xml file?by default BOINC will only use the GPU that it deems most "capable" based on a variety of GPU attributes. without the use all gpus flag set it will only use the best one, and only use more than one if all GPUs are identical.

<use_all_gpus>0|1</use_all_gpus>
    If 1, use all GPUs (otherwise only the most capable ones are used). Requires a client restart.

you should also exclude this GPU from getting Gravity Wave tasks, they will mostly fail on a GPU with only 2GB of memory.

Okay, the 2070S/750ti machine

Okay, the 2070S/750ti machine is new with new config files... your answer gets a thumbs up as I haven't messed with them for so long  that I forgot about about use_all_gpus. Thanks! And ditto for the warning about GW tasks.
