    NVIDIA today announced Tesla, a new class of processors based on a revolutionary new graphics processing unit (GPU). Under the Tesla brand, NVIDIA will offer a family of GPU computing products that will place the power previously available only from supercomputers in the hands of every scientist and engineer. The Tesla family of GPU computing solutions span PCs to large scale server clusters.

    The new family includes:
    • NVIDIA Tesla C870 GPU Computing Processor, a dedicated computing board that scales to multiple Tesla GPUs inside a single PC or workstation. The Tesla GPU features 128 parallel processors, and delivers up to 518 gigaflops of parallel computation. The GPU Computing processor can be used in existing systems partnered with high-performance CPUs.
    • NVIDIA Tesla S870 Deskside Supercomputer, a scalable computing system that includes two NVIDIA Tesla GPUs and attaches to a PC or workstation through an industry-standard PCI-Express connection. With multiple deskside systems, a standard PC or workstation is transformed into a personal supercomputer, delivering up to 8 teraflops of compute power to the desktop.
    • NVIDIA Tesla D870 GPU Computing Server, a 1U server housing up to eight NVIDIA Tesla GPUs, containing more than 1000 parallel processors that add teraflops of parallel processing to clusters. The Tesla GPU Server is the first server system of its kind to bring GPU computing to the datacenter.
    Pricing and Availability

    Haven't these been out for a while?

    It's basically a render farm, isn't it?

    Yea, Sun makes these too... if MS doesn't support compiling, it won't be mainstream for a while - unless it really is light years ahead.

    The greatest scientist ever, just checkout all his inventions/theories that were actually put into practice literally hundreds upon hundreds (if not thousands) of Tesla patents, unbelievable.

    It probably wouldn't run very well. I don't know many FireGL and Quadro gamers.

    Speaking of which, what's the difference between the Desktop Telsa and a FireGL or Quadro?

    In a lot of cases there really isn't much of a difference at all, the greatest difference is usually in the drivers.

    So the C870 is an 8800 GTX.
    Ans the D870 is eight 8800 GTSs.

    I read about this some time ago, I recall it basically being GPU's used as coprocessors much like using them for physics and folding and such. Basically it's the software you're buying here. I wonder if there are any uses for us home users.
