I just worked out with the Seti guys to add in some details to the hosts.gz xml file for each host to contain a line for the coprocs so we stats sites can parse and display it....

As per David Anderson's email..

Starting tomorrow, SETI@home's host.gz file (in its stats export)
will including the following line in some host elements:

<coprocs>[CUDA|GeForce 9500 GT|1|256MB]</coprocs>

This is a summary of the host's coprocessors.
In this case, there's 1 coprocessor of type CUDA.
The product name is "GeForce 9500 GT" and it has 256MB of RAM.

Any chance GPUGrid can look into updating the server code to include this also ?

awesome, I see the details in the hosts file now.. Hopefully I'll have my coding finished over the next few days to show and collate the info on my site...

Its good to see the new information, thanks

But it seems to have a problem identifying multiple dissimilar cards.
For example, host ID 12216 is reported as having 2x 9800GT whereas it has 1x9800GT and 1xGTX260

This is actually a problem of BOINC. It is not capable to store different hardware. So, for now it counts number of devices and multiply it by the first one. Stat guys should ping Anderson about it, but it might require a while.
