The NAMD side of things won't benefit from CUDA in a QM/MM situation because the bottleneck is the QM calculation. MOPAC does support GPU acceleration for systems after a certain atom number cutoff (100+, I think). If you want a GPU accelerated QM/MM calculation, you need to use the conventional NAMD build and specify the GPU accelerated MOPAC in the QM setup. Orca doesn't have GPU support at this time.

Subject: namd-l: ORCA GPUs
QM/MM with ORCA and MOPAC is working great now with our CPUs. I just tried a QM/MM with ORCA and GPUs, but I get the error:
FATAL ERROR: QM forces are not compatible with CUDA at this time
I am using NAMD 2.13b2 Linux x86 multicore CUDA and ORCA 4.0.1
I thought ORCA/NAMD QM/MM hybrid simulations were compatible with GPUs...
