GPGPU computing

Chemical computations, such as of molecular dynamics, that rely on
clusters or uma-type computers, are starting to be performed through
GPGPU technology, that is by putting graphical boards to general
floating point use. The first reports are of 10 to 80 times speeding
up with respect to the best single processors, i.e., something that so
far required big multicore machines for traditional computing. NVIDIA
CUDA seems to be a leader in this area.

As an amd64 user on traditional uma-type keyboards or clusters, may I
ask where to get independent information as to the hardware/software
required for GPGPU computing?
