This may be a BOINC issue, but if Intel GPU is deselected a message is returned that the job cache is full even though there are no other Intel GPU tasks of any project running.

This is only an assumption but maybe because of Nvidia and Intel GPUs don't work in parallel on laptops they have shared job cache.

Actually they do. I just don't typically run both because laptop runs rather hot with both so I don't like to run both for extended periods. We've been having a cool spell in our weather after some monsoon like (as it goes for California) weather so I'm been able to experiment and run more cores.

XANSONS doesn't seem to run quite as hard as some other project GPU tasks, like Einstein. I haven't formally checked out temperatures, but I can feel the exhaust is hotter.

Half the time I don't really check the logs unless I'm not getting work or I just want to check what the server is telling my client.

BTW, there's no general GPU category so I wanted to ask if you knew what determines how much of a CPU is used. I only have 2 nvidia GPUs to compare, but on the i5 I notice that the part of a CPU used is lower than on the newer i7 laptop. One would think that the newer system being more powerful would actually be less, but it's actually not...

I have to admit I'm rather new to the whole GPU computing. My old Dual Core 64 bit just flew under the radar for being able to do GPU (not enough RAM) and the i5 I had purchased as a temporary replacement came with a surprise of a nVidia GPU along with the standard Intel graphics. It's no gaming system, but for an older business oriented graphics it performs decently for what it can run.
