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
