Nvidia have “paper launched” the HPC version of its next-generation Fermi architecture. Branded as Tesla 20 series, the HPC GPGPUs will release in Q2 2010. Like the Tesla 10 series based on GT200, Tesla 20 will feature single GPU and four GPU options.

The single GPU will come in to variants – C2050 and C2070, with upto 3GB and 6GB GDDR5 memory respectively (with ECC enabled, 2.6GB and 5.2GB). The prices? An enormous $2,499 and $3,999, respectively.

As expected, Nvidia is really pushing benefits when compared to a CPU, especially in Dual Precision performance – fair enough. There is, however, absolutely no mention of competition’s GPGPU products.

Curiously, there’s an Editor’s Note at the bottom which clearly states the gaming Geforce products will be out in Q1 2010.
