NVIDIA GT300 update

There are some news (rumors) from Bright Side. Good news is that GT300 power usage is about 225W. This means, that You need 2 x 6-pin PCI-E power connectors, not 8-pin any more. This looks like not very important technical thing, but I can tell that many people dont use multi-GTX295’s because of PSU limitations. So, good developments. And Earth will be greener.



  1. I think it is good to support ATI to keep competition running. Found some information about newer ATI cards and think that maybe we have to build one cluster on those http://www.mmorpg.com/discussion2.cfm/thread/236721

  2. ATI cards are already now pretty impressive on the paper. Foro some reason, unknown for me, they are about 50% less powerful in folding than NVIDIA counterparts. I believe, their internaal architecture is different and FAH is optimized for NV. Optimization is the key in parallel processing, as You well know…

  3. It looks like NVidia is having issues with its yields from TSMC. I wonder if this means that NVidia will have to re-tape its GTX300. http://www.geek.com/articles/games/ati-and-nvidia-have-troubling-40nm-yields-from-tsmc-20090625/

  4. Yes, there are lots of rumors about delaying these cards. Hope to see some official explanations soon…


  5. Goals the next versions of cuda
    Better support for multiple GPUs (scales better)
    Fortran support
    c++ support
    better debugging support
    higher level of abstraction (easier for beginners)
    tools to compile cuda to a GPU or multicore CPU (command line option)
