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 what I've read up until now it supposed to run the calculations 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
