Is it possible to run more

Is it possible to run more than one of O2AS20-500 GPU wu's simultaneously? It looks like my RTX2070 can do alot more than it's doing now. It's currently crunching with 0.9 cpu's + 1 Nvidia GPU, but it seems to be very slow compared to FGRPopenclTV-nvidia wu's which it did two at the same time, very effortlessly.

Sure there is (but posting in a thread about how to not run more than one seems a bit odd Undecided)

Go to your Account -> Preferences -> Project and scroll down to "GPU utilization factor of GW apps:" change that to something less than 1.0 (e.g. 0.5 = 2 task at a time, 0.33 = 3 task at a time) save and then make Boinc download at least one task for O2AS20-500 for the GPU. A normal contact (click on update in Boinc Manager) won't get the setting downloaded, you need to download new work for it to apply.

Or use an app_config.xml to fine tune the settings, but this options has some drawbacks if you want to revert to not using it.
