GPU-based volunteer computing is now available on the Macintosh! Mac owners with NVIDIA GPUs can run GPU-enabled applications from Einstein@home and Collatz Conjecture. You'll need the latest development version of BOINC (6.10.28) and NVIDIA's CUDA driver.

Mac owners with NVIDIA GPUs can also run a GPU-enabled application from Collatz.

There is also a Mac CUDA app at Primegrid (www.primegrid.com) now too.

“Mac owners with NVIDIA GPUs can run GPU-enabled applications” is overly general. Only a couple of the latest cards shipped with Macs can run CUDA, and AFAICT the minimum OS that supports the drivers is two full versions ahead of that required by BOINC.
