I apologize in advance for starting a new thread, but I was unable to post this to the existing "Different projects for 2 opus" thread.

I have two MacPro 3,1 (Early 2008) computers with two GPUs each (from NVIDIA and ATI). They are running OS X 10.11 and Boinc 7.6 and 7.8. I wanted to crunch Collatz tasks using the NVIDIA GPU and Rosetta, Seti, and Einstein tasks using the ATI GPU. The cc_config.xml file below allows me to do so. This configuration allows tasks to be queued independently for each GPU; in other words, when the first GPU finishes a task, it does not need to wait for the second GPU to finish its task before it (the first GPU) starts a new task. Happy crunching!
