In general, Mocha is optimized for speed and resource use by default.
We recommend two changes if they are not already set:
- Change the OpenCL Device in the GPU section to your Display GPU. This forces Mocha to always default to the best GPU instead of automatically choosing for you.
- Change the Maximum memory usage to 50% if you’re using the plugin: This helps ease the burden on the host, which can already be eating a lot of memory.

We did an entire Office Hours video on different Mocha preferences (Mocha Pro 2022).
