You mean there never used to be?  That's probably why I was so crap at
First-Person-Shooters like Quake and Half-Life when I used to play
them years ago :D

More seriously, the other GPU manufacturer (ATi, now made by AMD)
support double precision too (although I've
always been an nVidia buyer as theire GNU/Linux drivers are kept more
up-to-date and function better).
