GPUGRID has announced that they are about to release a new version of their application that requires the 301.32 or higher Nvidia driver. I've already downloaded 301.42. Will you be ready for users who want to share their GPUs between your project and GPUGRID?

The OpenCL 3.11 app has been tested with the latest drivers and contains threadsafe code so it should exit nicely when BOINC want to switch from one Collatz to GPUGrid or vice versa. As soon as enough people have tested it and confirmed that the default settings work well for them (or find settings that do so I can then make them the defaults), I will make it a standard app. For now, it is an optimized app and availble at http://boinc.thesonntags.com/collatz/download/OpenCL

Will this be (OpenCL version) automatically used by collatz if I upgrade to 301.42? If so, is there an advantage to it in speed for GTX460 and GTX465?
EDIT: Sorry.... win7 64 bit OS, 980X CPU @ 3.7

I released the OpenCL apps for both nVidia and AMD today. If you have an OpenCL capable driver, it should send you the OpenCL application now. If not, please let me know. The should also "play well with others" in that there should not be errors when switching between Collatz and other projects.

I have received mostly all 4.2 WUs and am running out the 2.3 projects. My driver is W7 266.58 with GTX460(1M) and GTX465. Will this even work?
Has there been any success from donors with a similar setup? I am probably a bit paranoid, but from what I've seen on the web so far, it does not sound promising :(
