CUDA on one GPU while using other?

    I was wondering if, on the new MBP, one could use the lower-end GPU to drive the display while *simultaneously* using the other GPU for CUDA-related programming? Does anyone have any definitive information, or, at this point, I'll even entertain speculation :) Thanks.

    A few threads and some reviews indicate that this might be utilized in OSX 10.6.

    That's a very good question, I was kindda wondering about that myself.
    I doubt it's possible in 10.5 (but I'll run tests when I get my mbp anyway), but I think it will be quite possible in 10.6 or maybe even future 10.5 updates.

    I use one of 8800's in my mac pro for cuda, while the other is used to display stuff.. quite successfully. So hopefully we'll have that in our mbps too :)
