Generation Maxwell (GM) is now the recommended architecture for crunching at GPUGRID, due to performance/Watt and the research predominately being Single Precision.

Recommendations are grouped into High End, Mid-Range and Entry Level and by architecture or series:

Highly Recommended (all GM):

High End GTX Titan X, GTX 980Ti, GTX 980, GTX 970 Mid-Range GTX 960, GTX 950 Entry Level GTX 750Ti, GTX 750


Recommended (GeForce 700 series):
High End GTX Titan Z, GTX Titan Black, GTX 780Ti, Titan, GTX780, GTX 770, GTX 760Ti Mid-Range GTX 760, GTX 760 192-bit Entry Level GTX 740, GTX 730 (not the GF model)


Recommended (GeForce 600 series):

High End GTX 690, GTX 680, GTX 670, GTX 660Ti Mid-Range GTX 660, GTX 650Ti Boost, GTX 650Ti Entry Level GTX 650 (2GB only), GT 640 (Kepler) and GT 630 Rev.2.


No longer work (need to be cc3.0 or greater):

Geforce GTX 590, 580, 570, 480, 560 Ti (448), 470, 465, 560 Ti, 460, 550 Ti Tesla* C2050/C2070 (Workstation), M2050/M2070, S2050 (Data Center) Quadro Desktop* Quadro 6000, 5000, 4000, 2000, 2000D


No longer work:
Geforce GTX 295, 285, 280, 275, 260-216 (55nm), Tesla10, Tesla20, 460SE, GTS450, 480M (CC2.0), Quadro Mobiles; 5010M, 5000, 4000, 3000, 2000, Quadro 600


Recommended Desktop OEM Cards:
GTX 960 (OEM), GTX 760 Ti, GTX 760, GeForce GTX 660 (OEM) - Two versions 1152:96:32 (256bit bus) and the lesser 1152:96:24 (192bit bus), GTX 645 (GK106) 576:48:16, GT 640 (GK107)


OEM GTX cards tend to be mid-range and GT cards are entry level cards, however the 760 Ti and 760 are high end.

GPUGrid is now CC3.0 or higher.
Best to use GPU's with 2GB or more GDDR.
