I probably missed your point here, but on a Kentsfield Q6600 quad and
using the ApoA1 test we see x5 acceleration using a GTX460 card (going
from 0.44 ns/day without CUDA, to 2.22 ns/day with CUDA). Going five times
faster is definitely not 'practically useless'. Having said that, for the
needs of 'high powered computing initiatives' I'm not qualified to speak.
