I've seen this sort of post in a lot of BOINC forums. It's all down to the maths behind the calculations. A good explanation is in this post:

http://www.enigmaathome.net/forum_thread.php?id=96#771


SETI had their fair share of problems with CUDA, and they have a lot more expertise on tap than Enigma does! I think it's safe to say there are a lot of people on here that would like to see a CUDA/OpenCL application for Enigma, but unless it really can work out more efficient there isn't much point.

Did you read the thread you were linked to, or are you only trying to annoy, without reading or figuring out what project does what and why they chose to do it that way?
