Hi,
I'd like to know if it was conceivable to have apps/WU for the GPU's inside some smartphones like Samsung Galaxy S6 (GPU Mali-T760)
Thanks for answer.

They can not even get the AMDs to work satisfactorily, so using and supporting the many different phone GPUs seems highly unfeasible to me. There's also the point of raw power: GPU-Grid needs to get results back more quickly than other projects. They can not spread their work into "infinetly" small packages for many small GPUs. Or more precisely: if they tried to do so, they'd actually hinder the project progress.

If they ever make use of those GPUs it would have to be some fundamentally different application(*).
