Some numbers here:


Running this on my 8600 card I get:

STREAM Benchmark implementation in CUDA
 Array size (single precision)=2000000
 using 128 threads per block, 15625 blocks
Function      Rate (MB/s)   Avg time     Min time     Max time
Copy:      291777.6696       0.0001       0.0001       0.0001
Scale:     291777.6696       0.0001       0.0001       0.0001
Add:       437666.5043       0.0001       0.0001       0.0001
Triad:     437666.5043       0.0001       0.0001       0.0001

All the 0.0001 don't look right to me, but its 8:30 here and I should
get on with the day job.
