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 ftp://cs.ucl.ac.uk/genetic/gp-code/random-numbers/gpu park-miller.tar.gz
