Thanks for the input below. That is not what I would have expected at all f=
or the latest Apple products.

The documentation for supported CUDA Hardware at:

indicates that the nVidia hardware supports most recent GeForce family of p=
roducts (but not GeForce 320M).

"GPU Hardware

CUDALink is supported on all hardware that has CUDA support. If you are not=
 sure of the name of your graphics card, you can see the section on Graphic=
s Card Information.

The following hardware is currently supported.

Looks like it supports all the mobile GPUs except GeForce 320M (unfortunate=
ly yours)!
