Nvidia CUDA for Macs
Nvidia today announced the release of CUDA beta (12.9MB) for the Mac, a developer's kit that allows users to create derivative works for academic, commercial, or personal purposes. In addition to Nvidia's cards being used for gaming, some research firms use CUDA to do molecular modeling using parallel processing implementations, according to The Enquirer. The CUDA developers kit beta is available from Nvidia's website.
"The increased flexibility of the most recent generation of GPU hardware combined with high level GPU programming languages such as CUDA have unlocked this computational power and made it much more accessible to computational scientists," said Senior Research Programmer John Stone, commenting on the CUDA SDK.
