I made an app_config.xml for this project. It will need to be adjusted for your usage. I decided to post this because the <plan_class>mt</...> is not valid. For Windows: <plan_class>mt_windows</...>

<app_config>
<app>
<name>xansons_gpu</name>
<max_concurrent>X</max_concurrent>
<fraction_done_exact/>
<gpu_versions>
<gpu_usage>X</gpu_usage>
<cpu_usage>X</cpu_usage>
</gpu_versions>
</app>

<app_version>
<app_name>xansons_cpu</app_name>
<plan_class>mt_windows</plan_class>
<avg_ncpus>X</avg_ncpus>
<cmdline>--nthreads X</cmdline>
</app_version>
<project_max_concurrent>X</project_max_concurrent>
</app_config>

If you set the CPU usage on the GPU apps low enough BOINC won't consider it tieing up a whole thread. In my case, both the Intel and ATi GPU apps use less than half a core peak.

Thanks for posting this, what are your values for X?

Depends on the machine, but that's mostly for the CPU app, as I have machines with 4-24 threads. I like to do 2-3 on the 4c/8t and 4-6 on the 12c/24th. Below are my settings for a 3770k with a 7970 with notes

<app_config>
<app>
<name>xansons_gpu</name>
<max_concurrent>1</max_concurrent> <-Optional, use with gpu_usage
<fraction_done_exact/>
<gpu_versions>
<gpu_usage>1.0</gpu_usage> <-GPU fully utilized, only running 1
<cpu_usage>0.2</cpu_usage> <-how much CPU Boinc sees being used
</gpu_versions>
</app>

<app_version>
<app_name>xansons_cpu</app_name>
<plan_class>mt_windows</plan_class>
<avg_ncpus>2</avg_ncpus> <-not really that important matched to nthreds
<cmdline>--nthreads 2</cmdline> <-how many cores per WU
</app_version>
<project_max_concurrent>4</project_max_concurrent> <- optional
</app_config>
