There has been some limited mention of providing a GPU version of N-Body.
    Is there any information on whether it will be CUDA or OpenCl?
    Will it require good dual-precision performance?


This could be useful for GPU purchasing decisions, if or when the time comes.

I second this. I only run MW@H on my GPU, the CPU is reserved for WCG. And there seems to be a lot more development these days on n-body, so I assume it's more interesting to the project. I'd certainly like to contribute if such a client is feasible.
