you're forgetting fabulous ATi HD 4770.


edit: I'm still asking myself how ATi decided to not include DP on 57xx series...

edit2: this pdf from ATi
http://developer.amd.com/gpu/ATIStreamSDK/assets/ATI_Stream_SDK_Getting_Started_Guide_v2.0.pdf has all the data that you could need. Go to last page, section 4

HD 57x0 series missing Double Precision is kind of shame.
I asked AMD about it and there is answer:

Double precision floating point operations are not required for any known or anticipated GPU compute applications for consumers (i.e. gaming, multimedia, and productivity), where single precision processing is sufficient. Implementing high performance DP FP processing in hardware carries significant costs in terms of die size and power consumption, and wouldn’t provide any value to the vast majority of our customers. This is the main reason why all of the companies who participated in the definition of the new industry standard OpenCL and DirectCompute APIs agreed to make this an optional feature.

That being said, there are some high performance computing applications in the scientific or industrial fields where double precision can be beneficial, so we chose to include that capability in our most powerful GPUs to provide an attractive solution for those markets as well.

If you include the Teslas, you can also add the ATI Firestream 9170, 9250 and 9270 cards.

Geforce GT 240M

Getting the Message: Your NVIDIA GPU lacks the needed compute capability

No Mobile GPUs?
Only GTX?

Will there be an Update for those?

Presumably the message means that your card doesn't support Double Precision calculations - unfortunately, this project relies on that capability.

I'm getting 13 minutes per work unit on my gtx 295 (no overclocking or anything). ive turned in 10 GPU results for a 169 average per.
CPU is still waiting to finish even one WU per core :> 16% at an hour for an I7 920 slightly OC'd

Too old. You need a double precision card.

You need a card that has HD in its name and it can be any of these,
38xx
4770
48xx
58xx
Firestream 9100/9200 series

Anybody got WU run times for the new HD5830 (s/b on list I believe also)?

Trying to decide if I wanna upgrade a HD4850 with one of these.
