Nvidia cuda….

Wanted to take advantage of the CUDA from NVIDIA (a leading GPU manufacturer) – a system that uses GPUs for scientific computing. You also need a minimum of 256Mb Video card RAM to take advantage of CUDA. This will also increase my BOINC/SETI processing speed. My current nvidia driver for my PNY Quadro FX370 was dated 5/26/2008 release 7.15.11.6996. So l downloaded the latest driver from the nvidia website and the new driver is now dated 12/26/2008 release 7.15.11.8120
/this works okay on my Quad-core workstation and boosted my Vista index from 3.6 to 4.2
My Vista index ratings for my Processor/RAM/Hard drive was before and after the update 5.9
Graphics rating went from 3.6 to 4.2
Games graphics capability went from 4.0 to 4.6
It will be interesting to see this week what this GPU processing does to my boinc/seti ratings.
