Limited numerical precision of nVidia GeForce 8800 GTX and other GPUs requires careful implementation of PRNGs. The Park-Miller PRNG is programmed using G80’s native Value4f floating point in RapidMind C++. Speed up is more than 40. Code is available via ftp cs.ucl.ac.uk genetic/gp-code/random-numbers/gpu_park-miller.tar.gz.
