00:12 *** razass has joined #boinc

00:12 <razass> how can I tell if my GPU's are being used for processing?

00:12 <PovAddict> look at your electricity bill :)

00:12 <razass> lol

00:13 <razass> I'

00:13 <razass> I'm actually looking for the customization options for it if there are any

00:13 <PovAddict> what would there be to customize?

00:13 <razass> time to compute, % of proc to use, etc

00:14 <PovAddict> % of proc can't be done, ask nvidia for it

00:15 <PovAddict> there is no documented way to even get the GPU load apparently

00:15 <razass> ohh, this is on ATI

00:16 <PovAddict> there is no documented way to even get the GPU load, on any GPU (and if there is, well, BOINC doesn't support it (yet?))

00:17 <razass> thats fine, thanks for the help

00:17 <razass> GPU processing is still really new anyways

00:18 <PovAddict> it's definitely *possible*, nvidia has Windows-only apps that show many statistics and status info

00:19 <PovAddict> but they don't say how a program can get that info, so other than reverse-engineering their status app...

00:19 <razass> someone needs to take an nvidia sys eng out for drinks :)

00:20 <PovAddict> that probably already happened... :P

00:21 <PovAddict> nvidia itself did most of the work in porting seti@home to CUDA

00:21 <razass> oh really? thats impressive

00:21 <razass> well they want people to buy more of their cards :D

00:21 <PovAddict> for marketing purposes :P

00:21 <PovAddict> yup

00:21 <razass> naturally!

00:22 <PovAddict> I think it's all premature though

00:23 <PovAddict> I think cuda will die like the gpu-specific 3D APIs that existed back when GPUs were new

00:24 <PovAddict> DirectX appeared and all those proprietary apis disappeared
