As this is not a development-related question I'm moving the
discussion to the user's list. Future replies should be sent *only* to
gmx-users at gromacs.org.
As Axel pointed out, the list of CUDA-compatible devices is much
broader than the list of cards we label compatible. The compatibility
check is just a safety measure as GPUs not considered compatible will
be slower than most recent CPUs (see performance comparison on the
website http://goo.gl/eo0jS) especially in explicit water simulations.
However, you can always try by using the "force-device=yes" option and
see what performance you get, but you shouldn't expect much from a
