simulator for CUDA

Hi all
I am really interested in CUDA programming but still not in a position of buying a CUDA enable GPU. Therefore I would like to know that is there any software simulator for CUDA enable GPUs.

Cheers

You can compile your source to device emulator code. So you can run your apps on the CPU. No need for extra software.
However, this is slow and code that runs on the CPU is not guaranteed to work on the GPU. But it is nice way of getting familiar with the concepts of GPU programming until you can get your cuda enabled card.

Wait for CUDA 2.1, there will be an option to compile for multicore CPU’s in that one :)

There’s a really good deal on Newegg right now. You can get an 8600GT for $30! That’s a decent card for CUDA.
