I got
  STREAM Benchmark implementation in CUDA
  Array size (single precision)=8000000
  using 128 threads per block, 62500 blocks
Copy:       50006.6051       0.0013       0.0013       0.0013
Scale:      50006.6051       0.0013       0.0013       0.0013
Add:        56409.8044       0.0017       0.0017       0.0017
Triad:      56409.8044       0.0017       0.0017       0.0017

on a "nVidia Corporation G80 [Quadro FX 4600] (rev a2)".
wikipedia quotes 67.2 GB/s theoretical.

it didn't matter whether the machine was in init 3 or 5, though the X 
config was just an idle 1280x1024 server.

absolutely.  AMD has really dropped the ball on this, even though it looks
like they at least announced availability of DP earlier...
