      On my GPU it is limited to about 5000 sequences due to GPU memory limitations.  I do not
      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.
I am getting a speed of 4kp/sec for 11 sequences from n=1M to 20M. Sr2sieve and srsieve2 are both significantly faster. Is this what is expected?
