Nvidia reveals the personal supercomputer | News | TechRadar UK

Nvidia reveals the personal supercomputer News TechRadar UK: “Harnessing the power of the GPU beyond just basic graphics output has been inevitably bigged-up by Nvidia as the next big computing leap. Such confidence has it that general processing GPUs (GPGPUs) will be in everyone’s PC of the future that it has released a range of high-end GPU-based plug-in cards under the name Tesla.
The numbers make for compelling reading with the latest 10-series products in Nvidia’s Tesla range quoting up to 960 cores and up to 4 teraflops of performance. Before you get all over-excited though, the cores referred to are in fact shader processor threads.
Unless your chosen application runs optimally under an accelerated floating point environment, you won’t see much of Nvidia’s quoted ‘250 times the computing performance of a PC’. That said, Nvidia’s CUDA programming environment (see below) is designed to tap into Tesla’s specifically designed architecture and start the ball rolling for the next generation of mainstream application development.”
