I may not have all of this covered, but if you really want to crunch with this card, here are some things to try:

1) Which driver did you install? the 6000 series is no longer supported and needs the AMD legacy driver, the stock Windows driver won't work for compute, either.

2) Given the age and performance differences, BOINC automatically ignores weaker GPUs, though they still show up in the log list (as "not used"). You can add a cc_config.xml with the flag <use_all_gpus>1</use_all_gpus>

I tried having a HD6670 (Terascale arch, legacy drivers) in a system with two Polaris cards (newer drivers). The cards would not work together - if I installed the 6670, it would not recognize the other two, vice versa.

If you own a Ryzen system, it'll be a good idea too keep a backup dGPU.
