Default PRPs on an Nvidia GeForece GTX970

Is there any software that can run PRPs (with proofs) on a GeForece GTX970? CUDALucas only does LLs, and GpuOwL's readme mentions it's meant for AMD GPUs. Anything else I can use?

No, gpuOwl works just fine on Nvidia too, as long as it supports OpenCL (which I think is originally an AMD feature, but the newer Nvidia GPUs have it too - newer meaning 2010 and later, according to what I found).

Simply put, AFAIK it doesn't have a reason to not work with your GPU.

As Viliam said, you should be good to go.
If you have any problems, it may be simply an old video driver which I have run into.
It would show up as blah blah blah Opencl errors blah blah.
Try it as is, though.

So if I understand correctly, GpuOwL has to be compiled from the github page? There are no precompiled binaries?

There are, at least for Windows. Kriesel kindly compiles them and posts them in a thread here.

Thanks. I'm actually running Linux Mint though.

I should have some free time this weekend to play around with compiling them.
