I want to run GPU accelerated NAMD on my computer which has a ATI video
card. However, according to the NAMD user guide and online information, GPU
accelerated NAMD can only function with nvidia video cards, which are
CUDA-capable. I want to know does it mean that we can not run GPU
accelerated NAMD by using ATI video card in any case, currently?

I heard that NVIDIA Contributes CUDA Compiler to Open Source Community and
wish we can use ATI video cards to run NAMD with GPU acceleration in the

Best wishes to you,
