PrimeGrid does not use the gpu, I can fix it?

# aticonfig --od-getclocks | grep "GPU" GPU load : 0%


SETI@home instead uses the gpu

Go to PrimeGrid Projects and make sure "Use ATI GPU" is checked at the top of the page.

Then, nearer to the bottom, make sure one of the ATI GPU projects is checked. I'd recommend the PPS-Sieve. If your GPU has double precision floating point hardware, you can also run the GFN projects, but they are MUCH longer tasks (hours or days rather than minutes.)

Wow, it's an honor to speak with a discoverer of prime numbers

# aticonfig --od-getclocks | grep "GPU" GPU load : 93%
