NVIDIA updates Tesla card with GTX hardware

updated 04:30 pm EDT, Mon June 16, 2008


NVIDIA on Monday used the occasion of its GTX 200 introduction to quietly update its Tesla line of workstation processor cards. The T10P chipset added to the cards is virtually identical to the 240-core GTX but is her spun entirely towards accelerating high performance computing tasks such as medical research and very high-level math. The very specialized nature of the chip lets it calculate as much as 900 gigaflops by itself, or 73 percent more than the earlier card it replaces.

Two devices make up the new update. The Tesla C1060 is designed to fit into workstations through a standard PCI slot and delivers the baseline amount of performance, while the Tesla S1070 acts as a blade server with four chipsets and the ability to connect as part of a larger rack system through either one or two PCI Express slots.

The C1060 will be priced at $1,699 when it ships in the fall and should be accompanied by the S1070 at $7,995 for the two-slot PCIe version and $8,295 for the one-slot equivalent. NVIDIA hasn't detailed platform support but is expected to support Windows and has previously mentioned that Apple is aware of NVIDIA's CUDA technology; Mac OS X Snow Leopard is also expected to support OpenCL, a universal language for general-purpose GPU work likely to be shared between both AMD and NVIDIA.

    If it runs on a Mac...

    ...will it make Safari snappier?
