As the title how to get and run Distributed.net1.04 (opencl_nvidia_101) instead of Distributed.net 1.03 (cuda31) application ?
I have NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti (2048MB) driver: 388.13 OpenCL: 1.2
Is there any solution for this ? like app_config.xml or something ?

Thanks for your help

The only way I've found to get a NVidia card to use OpenCL on a reliable basis with Moo is to download a copy of the 521 OpenCL client from the Dnet clients download page, rename the .exe file to match the 520 client name in the moo wrapper "projects/moowrap.net" directory, then copy the renamed 521 version client to that directory overwriting the 520 client that is already there.

This will only work as long as BOINC does not get rebooted - if it DOES get rebooted, you'll have to do the copy overwrite again.

I'm not sure how much of a difference the GTX 750 ti has in performance under CUDA vs under OpenCL - the only thing I can remember the numbers on for that comparison is the GTX 1080 ti, which on my Aorus went from around 6-6.5 GKeys/sec to a hair over 10 on the same settings.
