Default What to look for when shopping for a graphics card?

What is most relevant? The number of CUDA cores? The power consumption? or the version of the firmware?

What is the primary goal of the GPU ( Trial Factoring, CUDA-LL, ECM, Gaming?)
What is your budget?

TF depends on CUDAcores and Clockspeed
CUDA-LL is mostly memory-bandwidth dependant.

Hola LĂ©lio,

PFGW does not have a CUDA-capable binary at the moment
If instead you meand using gfndsieve_CUDA to presieve numbers to be then checked with PFGW, then yu should at least wait the delivery of gfndsieve_CUDA

Finally, if you plan to use Feromant_CUDA, then what you should choose are more parallel processors.
