Re: HCC GPU app close to going live IT HAS LAUNCHED

Does that app-config give you 5 or 10 tasks on each card?

Probably a good call on the 580. Maybe a 50/50 split on the CPU cores for starters and then some trial and error to find the best mix.
EDIT: Glenn knows about Nvidia. Follow his lead on the tasks for that card. You can add code to his proposed app_config file to split up your remaining CPU cores on other tasks any way you'd like.

Its should be 5 per card.

On my dual 7970, I have this app_config which runs 9 per card:
<app_config>
<app>
<name>hcc1</name>
<max_concurrent>18</max_concurrent>
<gpu_versions>
<gpu_usage>.11</gpu_usage>
<cpu_usage>.66</cpu_usage>
</gpu_versions>
</app>
</app_config>

glennaxl got it right, the config I'm using gives me 5 per card for 10 total.

I'm going to try out running 2 gpu tasks on my card and 5 cpu tasks on my workstation (The system with the gtx580). This will leave one core unloaded on my workstation and should give me a very good balance of WUs processed/system responsiveness (this is my main work rig and I don't want it to bog down on me).
