Yea the version I tried was a Nvidia app for windows but so far there's no AMD version.  But they are working on it so it's possible the AMD cards will perform much better? But time will tell.

Eric is working on it but only for Linux Thumb Down
It's ok though. I have other agendas for my GPU's Thumbs Up

Thanks for posting the app_config file JugNut.
That's just what I was looking for.
My GPU load was very low - only around 25% on the RTX 2070.

Even though the credits are low, I'll keep going for a while.
It's nice to have another project to use my GPUs on.

No worries Daniel,  how did the new app work out for you? Did it run OK on your RTX 2070?
In general are you happy with the 2070 as a boinc crunching card?

Hi JugNut,

The new app is working fine on the RTX 2070 and on my other Nvidia GPUs.
Although, the credit is very low, as you mentioned.

I'm very happy with the RTX 2070, it's my best card and I haven't had any problems with it.

Actually, all my Nvidia cards have been good.
They have been very reliable - I haven't had any fail yet.

I also haven't had any problems with the drivers (but I don't update the drivers very often).
The temperatures are OK too.

I just wish Nvidia would release a GPU (that I can afford) with better Double Precision GFLOPS so that I could do better at Milkyway@Home.

Thanks for the info Daniel it's always good to hear first hand about how individual cards behave while crunching Thumbs Up  Yea same here no problems with any of my Nvidia cards.  But still I need a new card or two and i'm still trying to figure out best bang for buck for the latest round of cards.  One things is for sure one way or the other new cards won't be cheap.

Cheers  Hi there!

No Jugnut.... I'm a bit bitter about the pricing of new cards. A mid range card is now quite expensive. Ridiculous really. Top end consumer cards like the 2080Ti and just horrendously priced.
I think the 1660Ti looks like a good, efficient card and the 2070. DEFINITELY don't bother with the 1650. Thumb Down
