Default Fractals with GPU

I've found an interest in fractals lately after seeing some on the Internet.

One program uses CUDA capable GPU's

Here's what one user says: "Rendering a 1920 x1200 flame at 8000 quality used to take somewhere around 5-6 hours on a 3ghz Core 2. On a GTX260 it takes less than two minutes. Insane!"

It can be found at: GPU Flame Fractal Renderer | Get GPU Flame Fractal Renderer at SourceForge.net

a good source for seeing fractals is here:Browsing deviantART

thanks IRQ, at the moment i'm not doing any fractals, i'm waiting for my gpu to come back from repairs and my cpu is busy doing Rosetta/Poem@home;
also i don't understand much about those terms relating to fractals. Will have to learn some.

it sure can make beautiful wallpaper.
