  1. Nvidia has unveiled new Fermi-based Tesla products, the Tesla 20 series GPUs, which are aimed at the high-performance computing market. Designed for parallel computing, the company said its Tesla 20 series graphics chips reduce the cost of computing by delivering the same performance of a traditional CPU-based cluster at one-tenth the expense and one-twentieth the power consumption.

    Well, it is not that sure what the nVidia future is like... but we wish them well as they go through their travails.

    If the first two are aimed at high power workstations, then isn't nVidia competing with itself? They already has the Quadro series for workstations, and I'm sure they will update that line when the new GPU is released.

    These cards are more for render farms than desktop computing right? I'm guessing in this direction because with all the memory that these cards come with, a single DVI connector looks inadequate for a Quadro type replacement. (Unless it's one of those weird ones that have an octopus cable adapter.)
  7. Nvidia's future is dictated by the current state of the world economy.
  8. Nvidia should partner up with Vray / MentalRay people to help those engines render faster. They need to release more specific information before I set a budget for next year!

  11. Anyone want to comment on the statement that there will come in Q2 2010? That's... pretty late!
  12. these are way tooo cheap to be a part of my PC

    "one terabyte of memory"? That's a lot.

    Also, I agree Q2 sounds a little late, and they haven't yet released any info of their consumer level chips. Hopefully that's coming soon.

    I was expecting them to have more than 2.5 TFLOPs. Doesn't AMD's 5870 have 2.72 TFLOPs? Let's just hope that the 300 series will be good enough to compete with the 5000 series. I want those high prices of dx11 cards to drop a bit before i buy something.
