for use both GPU in Arena you must set:

Backend: Multiplexing
BackendOptions: (backend=cudnn,gpu=0),(backend=cudnn,gpu=1)
For the RTX cards presumably it'd look like this:

Backend: Multiplexing
BackendOptions: (backend=cudnn-fp16,gpu=0),(backend=cudnn-fp16,gpu=1)

Two GPUs

Just trying an experiment with Lc0.

(And the LC0 NN has about a million cells and a billion connections between them.) GPUs are designed to do many (hundreds) multiplications simultaneously. So they can do this mu...
