Jord, thanks to your hint I have my 4 GPUs back. The key was to edit coproc_info.xml file. In my case I have doubled </ati_opencl> entry. It is very important to make the coproc_info read only, because BOINC Manager will modify it during a start. Thanks once again!

Hi, I had a similar problem, but I lost 2 of my 4 GPUs. In my case the key was to edit coproc_info.xml file and double gpu entry. Thanks!

Considered that perhaps one of the cards is dead, has come loose from its PCIe slot (thus reseat it), or that it's without sufficient power (check your PSU, check cables)?


I have checked the physical connection of both cards and it looks ok. Cards are working as usual - leds are blinking and coolers are turning, they are also hot. I also asked AMD if I should see 4GPUs or 2 in a task manager or Radeon Software and their answer is "Please be informed that you have two Radeon Pro Duo graphic cards , Radeon software will show the GPUs as GPU1 and GPU2 and its normal".
I still have no idea why BOINC Manager showed 4 devices and without any hardware changes or even computer or BOINCs Manager reset I suddendly lost 2/4 devices? Any ideas what to check next? Maybe Windows reinstallation?

Thank you for a fast response. I tried to turn off graphic cards in Windows device manager. If I turn off the first card in device manager, GPU device 0 stops counting. If the second graphic card is turned off, GPU device 1 stops working in BOINC Manager. That’s why I thought that both cards are working, but BOINC cannot utilize the second GPU on each card.
But frankly speaking I don’t know how Windows should recognize Pro Duo cards. Maybe there should be 4 cards instead of 2 in device manager like it is now and your remark is excellent. I have no physical access to the computer now, but I will check it tomorrow and let know.

Hi everyone, I have a similar problem because Boinc stopped recognizing 2 form 4 GPUs so hope this is a right place to describe my case. I use two AMD Radeon Pro Duo graphics cards and sudendly without any configuration and hardware changes Boinc sees only 2 devices instead of 4.
I have tried to upgrade /downgrade graphic drivers, reinstal Boinc, configure cc_config to use all GPUs, changing projects... All without any success.
I have no idea what to do next to retrieve lost gpu's. Maybe you will help? Here are the logs before and after I lost GPUs.
