Hey, I read through all the "gpu topics" now and a question came to my mind.

There are currenty quite a few people who work on CUDA, Stream or OpenCL clients.
-eurekafag
-laszlo
-lzsaver
-m0mchil
-nelisky
-puddinpop
-tcatm

Why dont all of you work together to enable OpenCL (as it works on all current graphic cards) at the default client ?
It would be so much easier for everyone if you would work together on an open source code instead of everyone making his own thing.

So, here's your chance to contribute even more to the bitcoin community:
work together for the sake of all bitcoiners Wink

While I'm not much of a C/C++ programmer, i will surely help in making of cuda/opengl-enabled ebuilds for Gentoo Linux.

Yeah, been there, tried that. Turns out I kick started a cuda version that got embraced by eurekafag, which was pretty cool. But make no mistake, every time someone builds a slightly better version, the tendency is to keep it to themselves, unless they lack the hardware to use it to their own profit. Which accounts for the rest of us, I guess Smiley

Anyway, I've been moving my attention elsewhere as the amount of interest I got from the community to pursue this was so small I feel I'm just doing this for myself. Which is fine, except I have other things I'd rather do right now.

But if someone preps up a clean implementation against the default client I'll certainly help with all I learned in cuda (and to a lesser extent in opencl) and be a very avid tested!

No one has got it to work with PyOpenCL. An OpenCL standalone client has not been made yet.
