NVIDIA Unveils Telsa GPU Computing Processor

Telsas NVIDIA Unveils Telsa GPU Computing Processor

NVIDIA
today has launched a new product line known as Tesla specially for the GPGPU
market. According to
TGDaily
and
Beyond3D
, the Tesla C870 card is G80 based using Quado series based PCB but
without display outputs.

The card is clocked at 575MHz core, has 128 shader processors at 1.35GHz with
1.5GB GDDR3 memories. NVIDIA claims that a single Telsa C870 card has a peak
performance of 518GFlops that is able to match a combined performance of 40 x86
processors and consumes 170W of power. NVIDIA unveiled a D870 Deskside
Supercomputer containing 2 Telsa cards hitting 1.036 TFlops consuming 550W power
and S870 GPU Computing Server packing 4 Telsa cards hitting 2.072 TFlops
consuming 800W if power. No SLI interface is required as one CPU thread will
control a CUDA device so there is a linear increase in performance.

Telsa C870 card will be priced at $ 1499 and D870 at $ 7500 to be available in
August while the Telsa server will cost some $ 12K to be available in Q4. A
vendor even plans to sell a 12 TFLops Telsa server (24 Telsa cards) that will
cost between $ 60-70K. Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang told TG Daily that Tesla will be
strictly focused for the enterprise market and will not be making its way to the
consumer market. “Perhaps in the future,” said Huang, “[this technology] could
do physics on the PC, but this would need a Windows API.”
