In this paper I will outline some of the aspects and problems of modern celestial mechanics and stellar dynamics, in the context of the quickly growing computing facilities. I will point the attention on the great advantages in using, for astrophysical simulations, the modern, fast and cheap Graphic Processing Units (GPUs) acting as true supercomputers. Finally, I present and discuss some characteristics and performances of a new double-parallel code exploiting the joint power of multicore CPUs and GPUs.
