No, but it's something I'd like to do.

Several years ago, a volunteer wrote a GPU version that gave the correct results. The problem was that it still used the CPU for a big portion of the calculation and didn't improve timing very much. To make it a true GPU app, the PARI code (at least the functions we use) would need to be rewritten for the GPU. So it will be a non-trivial task. If you know any student looking for a class project, feel free to send them my way.
