This exists, but is super alpha at the moment (apparently it doesn’t entirely conserve energy. My bad!). See, especially the source tarball, which has building instructions.

The requirements are basically that you need an AMD GPU that is compatible with HIP, which is some but not all Radeon cards, and basically none of the common consumer cards a typical computational scientist is likely to have laying around.*Hardware-and-Software-Support__;Iw!!DZ3fjg!vF2k_mcreXXti7f1gNtf6Z7wuXLAhCjyJPFrv_xfhg1tHFAwHjMbUDAQ9IylFSCvKg$
