Quadro CUDA compatibility confusion Hardware compatibility CUDA

The list of CUDA enabled GPUs can be found at:
http://www.nvidia.com/object/cuda_learn_products.html

But on the page with CUDA code samples for example at:
http://www.nvidia.com/object/cuda_sample_data-parallel.html

it is stated that the examples requires:
GeForce® 8 Series
Quadro® FX 5600 or later
Teslaâ„¢

Which information can I trust?
And how to find out the Nvidia Quadro chronology to know which GPUs are later than the FX 5600 GPU?

/P

The first list is correct.

“Quadro FX 5600 or later” on the samples page is a bit misleading, since CUDA will work on some of the lower-end Quadro FX cards. Unfortunately it’s not simple to determine from the name which of the Quadro FX line are based on the G8x architecture.

OK, thanks!

And the document:
NVIDIA CUDA Compute Unified Device Architecture Programming Guide Version 1.1

(http://developer.download.nvidia.com/compute/cuda/1_1/NVIDIA_CUDA_Programming_Guide_1.1.pdf)

makes it more clear in Appendix A. Technical Specifications (page 73) where the CUDA capable GPUs are listed.
