No. The crystal ball feature is not yet implemented in SGE.

When you know the runtime of a job from experience, then you can also  
make an assumption how long it will take on a machine which is twice  
as fast as the one it ran on. I say assumption, as there are many  
factors like disk access by faster/slower controller, memory access,  
internal operation of the CPU, swapping caused by other jobs on the  
machine or because it needs more memory, which will lead to some  
variations. For this you could write a script and use it outside of SGE.
