Hi,

Do any other programs, e.g. CUDA SDK samples (like deviceQuery) detect
both GPUs?
I find it *very-very* unlikely that only mdrun would not be able
detect both GPUs.

Again, are you sure it's not the use of CUDA_VISIBLE_DEVICES that
creates the confusion? Please share your full command line (with env
vars an all) and resulting log output?

Cheers,
