Wouldn't be better to allow GPU-accelerated application for personal Supercomputing?

Recent advancement in GPU-accelerated computing technology going from Fermi architecture to Kepler architecture, which is like comparing saturn 5 rocket engine next to a warp core engine. I think it could considerably outperform the previous CUDA application for BIONIC and it would greatly benefit the SETI@Home project. It might deliver even more bang than anyone has ever thought of.

possibly something worth looking into.

Development takes time and money. None of which are in great supply at SETI@Home at the moment.

There is work in progress in gettng the ivy bridge GPUs to work in BOINC, but not necissarily in SETI.
