Yes, I know this topic has been mentioned.

I have a $300+ CUDA enabled video card that is knocking off SETI WUs about one every 10 minutes. None of those GPU cycled go to anything but SETI.

They could be going to Rosetta.

If there are enough people crunching Rosetta via CPU only and more people aren't needed then there's no reason to add CUDA WUs to Rosetta. If you need more people crunching WUs than you have, to add CUDA support to Rosetta will arguably be your most expeditious way to get more crunched WUs.

Cheers!

Don't we all! It is just to hard to do right now as explained here https://boinc.bakerlab.org/rosetta/forum_thread.php?id=4100&nowrap=true#52929

It seems to me like you want to contribute to rosetta@home with your card, but since it's CUDA is not (yet) supported, you have something else running. I'd suggest GPUGrid, because it's a biomedicine project and runs on NVidia/CUDA cards. If you rather support SETI than GPUGrid, you don't have to change anything, but if I had such a nice card, I'd choose GPUGrid.

Have a look at it and let us know what you think.

I think GPU support would help rosetta@home a lot more, and I also think that the Team knows that.
