BOINC client will not see my GPU

Post by johntimber » Fri Jul 06, 2018 2:06 pm


I have installed a FirePro S9150 into my system (Windows 10) and successfully installed the latest drivers (18.x) Windows sees the card just fine. BOINC does not see the GPU. I have created cc_config.xml with <use_all_gpus>1</use_all_gpus> and placed it in c:programdataboinc but still does not work.
Any ideas? I should note that this is a 'headless' GPU, no video output connectors.

Please help.

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.

It's worrisome that I could not find an active workstation GPU listed on WUProp@Home.

However, the thread that this message is in at PrimeGrid has many avenues to explore. ... rue#119120

... I guess I will stick to 40FPS.... . Ive done some modding before, but that was stuff like PSP, and not 1K NTB.

Thanks anyway.

Ive noticed it as well, in both IE and Edge. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesnt and its not specific photos because Ill go back to a thread later and its fine where it wasnt before same photo, same post. Dont really have any answers, but just confirming it exists.

I cant find how i can see where other members are located by browsing a post. Is there a way we can do that?
For now, what ive done is added this plus my ride under my Avatar.

Just wondering, not a big deal.
