CUDA GPGPU on MacBook Pro Laptop

I've ported my pthread generic and CUDA GPGPU real-time ray tracers to Mac OS X running on a MacBook Pro laptop. It has a 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor and a NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GT graphics processor. The Performance for 1 and 2 software threads is comparable to my older Linux desktop, and the CUDA is within a factor of 3 of the desktop graphics card.

Threads Frames Per Second
1 8.5
2 17.4
GPU 16.7
