      know what the limits are for other GPUs.  It will switch to the GPU at p>1e6.
On an older GPU, srsieve2cl struggles with 1000 sequences causing significant lag in the display. But that GPU is also much slower, so it isn't worth running on it.
How much VRAM is used for 5000 sequences and 80000?
