The main purpose of this paper is to demonstrate how we make use of the powerful graphics processor, NVIDIA GTX280, in numerical simulation with the support of double precision floating number. Apply the finite volume method in simulating the Euler equation, two well-known examples for travelling shock waves were examined in high resolution. We had achieved at best 878 times faster than a Core 2 Duo E8500 system as one core used. Beside that, the potential of multi-GPU parallelism in large-scale model is also been exhibited.
