Speaking only for myself, the CUDA P-1 program needs a lot of work first before porting. (I've spent gpu-years probing it for bugs and capability limits, with further to go.)
ECM code for gpus is limited to bit lengths much too short to be of use to GIMPS, and ECM is not effective for exponents of relevance to the current GIMPS wavefronts.

See and
I know of no OpenCL P-1 factoring implementation.
I know of no OpenCL ECM implementation.
I know of no CUDA implementation of the PRP test that will compile for and run on Windows.
If you do, please PM or post where to find any such.
