Hello!
Can you tell me, how I can check whether my NVIDIA GTX 660 Ti is being used in computations or not?
The point is that there's no utility is able to snow me running processes for some reason. No nvidia-smi, no nvtop, no NVIDIA System Monitor.
I'm on Arch Linux up to date, recent GPU driver (nvidia).

Rosetta@home does not have any GPU applications.

Then you have a bad Nvidia driver installation. Part of the driver installation is nvidia-smi and the Nvidia X Server Settings app which is automatically created in your Apps.

Nothing’s been announced. Some recent discussion here: Discussion of the merits and challenges of using GPUs
