I was wondering since pps has a gpu sieve application if there were any plans or if it was possible to bring a riesel version online at some point?

There has recently been a discussion about it and it turned out after some test that a GPU sieve many times slower than a current CPU sieve.

When sieving on a GPU it doesn't matter how many k's you sieve (it takes the same time to sieve k=3 and k=3 to k=9999), it only matters what n-range you sieve. So a GTX570 performs 10 times and more slower than an i7-3770.

That's why we don't have a GPU version of TRP Sieve.

Cheers

Thanks! that's exactly what I was looking for. I searched the wiki and the forums and I didn't find the conversation or any mention of it.
