The new BRP CUDA tasks require the following:

- Windows
- BOINC 6.10.x
- CUDA driver >= 3.2 (>= 260.00)
- 100% GPU (it just uses up to 75%)
- 20% CPU
- 300 MB RAM required
- Speed up compared to CPU: up to 20x (240 cores)

Cheers, Mike.

( edit ) If there arises a need to change the specification then PM me and I'll edit as appropriate.
