Are there plans to have GPU (NVidia) WUs in the foreseeable future?
Thanks.

To have a GPU version, Vina needs to be ENTIRELY redesigned. I haven't written Vina, so I can't do that. Sorry.

Vina doesn't support GPU.
But works very well with multicore cpu

I like the very :)

I deactivated the multi-CPU, because Vina takes everything it can get.

Is the source code for Vina available for download? If so, I'll take a look at it to see if I can produce a CUDA version for Windows, now that I've finished an online CUDA class. I'm not ready for an OpenCL version yet - I would need an online course in OpenCL first, and I've not found any that don't appear to be restricted to using OpenCL on FPGAs rather than on GPUs.

I do NOT plan to be working directly on your server, only to send you the new source code and let you inspect it before recompiling it. You'll also need to handle any changes needed to make it run on operating systems other than Windows.

Note - can your server even handle the increased load from a GPU version? Ten times as much work completed in the same time is typical.
