Default GpuOwl Nvidia Hardware Accelerated Scheduling Test (Windows)

With the newest Nvidia driver release on Windows along with the newest Windows update, there's apparently a new feature that is called hardware accelerated scheduling under the settings->display->graphics options menu, so I decided to run a quick and dirty test on it.



Without it enabled: one core of the CPU is constantly maxed out (overall usage about 5% on the 3900x)

Code:
2020-06-28 21:13:19 TITAN V-0 OpenCL compilation in 0.49 s
2020-06-28 21:13:19 TITAN V-0 101931917 OK 82024800 loaded: blockSize 400, 53b14f4d4e7e70c0

With it enabled: CPU usage is way down to around 40-50% on a single core (or around 2% overall utilization on 3900x)

The speed up is seemingly negligible but the CPU utilization is way down, which could make the -yield option unnecessary.

Interesting. What are the version numbers for those? I've noticed that -yield was not as effective on Windows 10 as on Windows 7.

Tested mfaktc, 0 difference between enabled and disabled and CPU usage is equally low at near 0%.

As mfaktc already supports sieving on GPUs, this should make very little difference unless you're sieving on the CPU.
