I'm seeing great GPU utilization with these Adrias. My 980ti is running two tasks and it is consistently at 95-96% usage and running at 96% power. Other tasks usually run below 90 and sometimes below 80. I have a Kill-A-Watt(TM) watt meter on the computer only and it reads 392 watts now, usually more like 365w at most and often much less. And this is all on a Windows10 box. Also, GPU memory used is 2.5GB out of 3GB which is also unusually high.

Has there been some recent improvement in the code in this batch specifically to improve GPU utilization?

Thanks,
Win

These tasks have 95614 Natoms, which is a lot more than the other tasks.

I like Adrias too. It's been some time since I coudln't run GPUgrid jobs as mst long runs didn't finish on time. However, these utilise my GT740M %100 and finish just like older units. Also even I run other Boinc jobs on the CPU they hardly fall under %99 - 100 GPU utilisation.
