Products for Mac OS X Systems
Like Macintosh computers themselves, Gaussian Inc.'s product offerings for Mac OS X come in two varieties: one designed for PPC-based systems and another for Intel-based systems.
Gaussian 09M and GaussViewM are full implementations of Gaussian 09 and GaussView for the G4/G5-based Mac OS X environment. Both are 32-bit applications. Single CPU and cluster/network parallel versions of Gaussian 09M are available. Neither 64-bit nor multiprocessor/multicore systems are supported on PPC-based Macs. Individual copies of these products are offered with a shrink-wrap license. Site licenses are also available and required a signed license agreement.
Intel-based Mac OS systems are one of the supported platforms for the UNIX versions of both Gaussian 09 and GaussView. Gaussian 09 on Intel Macs is available in 32-bit and 64-bit versions, and both support multiprocessor/multicore systems. Cluster/network parallel versions are also available in both 32-bit and 64-bit implementations. All of these versions require a signed license agreement.
Single CPU, 32-bit shrink-wrap licensed versions of Gaussian 09 and GaussView are also offered for Intel Mac OS X systems as Gaussian 09IM and GaussViewIM.
