Dual GTX260s

Postby Phred15 » Wed Oct 05, 2011 8:12 pm

cpu= Phenom x6 folding fah
The operating system is Windows XP SP3 pro
When I added the second gtx 260 and started a new unit my frame rate for both units sky rockets up to almost four times what I get with one gpu unit
They are different units one is project 6604 and the other is project 10515. the properties set as -gpu o for the first card and -gpu 1 for the second card. What the heck am I doing wrong. This is a new motherboard and I was running 3 of these cards in another computer with no problems.
I tried the -forcenvidia_g80 switch and that is no longer functional.

Don't forget the correct spacing/spelling... "-forcegpu nvidia_g80"

Also, are you running an SMP client? Have you changed the fah client priority settings? SMP = idle, gpus = low

I copy and pasted your spelling. It is not a recognized switch but thanks. I am successfully running 2 460s in another computer with these settings but they are fermis.

Did you extend your desktop to the second card to enable it ?
