A new feature in BOINC 6.10.x is that it recognize the videocard and determs if it can be used for number crunching.
Your card is capable (CUDA), so BOINC wil ask for GPU tasks.

Because R@H don't have a GPU app, you can't disable BOINC asking for GPU tasks.
In projects that have such an app, you can. :D
2) Message boards : Number crunching : Strange behavior. (Message 64338)

Thanks for the answer, but I have to disagree about the benchmark.
BOINC uses the bechmark to estimate how many work can be done, so no WU will timed out. It is a local proces on the host.
To calculate the (claimed) credits FLOP counts are used.

When its depending on the benchmark you would see the same behavior, as noticed here, in other projects. And that is not the case. :D

Can someone explain the following?
This host, a new laptop, claims almost twice the amount of credits as granted.
This host of mine claims for the same CPU time the credits that are granted.
Both are using stock apps, no OC and the granted credits are the same.
I do not see this behavior at Seti or Einstein.
