As posted here, the answer is they are currently not supported. You may just have missed one of the other pages of posts inquiring about them being supported where the question was already answered.

You seeing a slot on another client was due to an error in adding the Intel IGP's to the GPUs.txt file. They were mistakenly read as supported by some clients and slots added. That error has been corrected and an updated GPUs.txt file won't cause this.

Adding support for Intel IGPs is one of many items on wishlists. The most powerful of the IGPs are starting to match processing power of low end discrete GPUs. Whether recently donated developer time and other resources leads to working support remains to be seen. There will be an announcement if and when such support is released.

Intel GPUs are NOT supported at the present time. Your NVidia GPU should be folding and you CPU should be folding.

It should not have shown as an extra slot and it certainly would not have received any GPU assignments. Development may have found a way so that it won't show as an unused slot (which would have been correct).

This morning, I had to do a reboot and upon restarting the computer, it dumped the project I was working on, removed my 1050M and added in a UHD 630. I re-added the 1050M and the 630 remains. Even after another reboot, both vid cards are still there. Of course, no projects are available, but regardless it remains. So it appears they have added the integrated GPUs again, eh? The most annoying part of this was the previous 9 hours wasted on the WU that got dumped. Meh, back up and running.

There are some newer topics on this, but to summarize:

1 - A number of Intel GPUs have been added to the GPUs.txt file. Most are listed as unsupported, a few have been enabled for internal testers to determine if support in the new version of Core_22 works and produces usable and accurate results.

2 - There is one or more bug or misfeature in the recently updated client software around detecting new hardware as a GPU and configuring a slot for it. That has been reported and will get fixed eventually.

It appears your system has one of the Intel GPUs that has been enabled for that testing. There was an incorrect setup made at one point, some WUs did get assigned outside the internal tests, see this reply in another topic - viewtopic.php?f=61&t=35568&p=338063#p338063.

For now my suggestion would be to set that slot for the Intel GPU to Paused, right click on the slot in FAHCOntrol. Adding the parameter 'pause-on-start' to the slot using Configure and setting it to 'true' will keep it from making any requests for WUs. Deleting the slot may not work, the next client restart might add the slot back again.

That's exactly what I have done. My only real concern with it was that it would be constantly hitting the server for another WU, but that quickly became apparent it was a non issue as long as it remains paused. Otherwise, it hurts nothing and remains as a place holder so I don't have lost WUs again.

Thanks for the reply. Now, let's get back to having non-COVID WUs. What good is surviving COVID if I have Alzheimers and can't remember who my family even is?

I'd be more worried about NOT surviving a covid hospitalization but it might be easier if I didn't remember who my family is.

That may not be true, though. My mother died from Alzheimers and even though she didn't recognize me in the later months, she sill asked about where he family was and when she could go home.

Both are painful ways to go.

Well let's hope that after the Corona-virus-family is mapped out, F@H can keep, or even broaden, the citizen scientist base and do Alzheimers, Cancer, Parkonson's etc. in the same fashion.

I know, right? Like I'm definitely ready for what's next. Obviously COVID is top priority, but once we've solved that, we still have roughly 15x the power we had 5 months ago, so it'll be interesting to see the kind of progress that can be made with our current 1.5 ExaFLOPS of compute.
