Dear Amir,

CUDA supported products are at: http://www.nvidia.com/object/cuda_learn_products.html
I can't wait to get my hands on Mathematica 7 so that I can try and
run some parallel calculations on the GPU.

from Mathematica directly without the need for compiling the C code.
As for the double precision, the new Nvidia boards should have it.
I you get to try Mathematica 7 with CUDA, let me know your results.

Antonio
