You can come very close to your desired configuration simply by setting the resource share, in project preferences,

A - Resource share 10000
B - Resource share 1
C - Resource share 0

In theory you would get 1 WU for B for every 10000 WU's from A (presuming equal run time), and only get C WU's if both A and B have no work.
2) Message boards : Number crunching : Maintaining Max Boost MHz on Kepler GPU using NVIDIA Inspector (Message 36377)
Posted 19 hours ago by Profile skgiven
Three days ago I experienced a worse situation with the last full driver (335.23 WHQL); GPU0 (GTX770) not only stopped boosting, it dropped to and stayed at a lower power level ~549MHz. Even after completing different tasks it stayed there. Suspending and resuming work didn't resolve the issue. The power usage was low (~27% IIRC) but the GPU usage was high (>80%).

I'm now trying 337.50 (without the work around) and so far so good - GPU0 is boosting to 1267MHz. However these issues were fairly rare on my setup, across several driver releases. So it could take a few weeks before the issue naturally presents itself again. I have tried snoozing the GPU and resuming again, but that didn't trigger an issue. The type of task running might be of some concern. The Power usage difference between some present task types is around 10%. Stems from a 14% GPU usage variation.

Bumblebee bad!

Yeah, I see that now. Maybe their search facility reset my OS back to W7 because I was working from a W7 system, or their .uk site wasn't quite right.
Title fixed.

Not sure where you got the 337.12 Beta from? The main Beta is the 337.50 version, released on the 7th Apr '14.

Might try it over the weekend...

My guesstimate is about 25% to 30% faster on Linux.

Boinc was primarily designed to manage SETI's security issues. At that time (2002) crunchers would have only used one type of processing resource, single core CPU's, though multi core CPU's already existed.

Multi-compute resource management was not a requirement.

It's tricky enough keeping credits consistent inside this project. I don't even want to imagine the mess in comparing to others.

Don't even concern yourself with such issues, they are out of your hands. Focus on your research ;)
