NVIDIA announced this week its new Quadro FX 5600 GPU. At $17,500 you probably won’t be putting any of these in that cluster of old PCs you have in the basement at home.
It’s a very beefy card, with a 3 GB frame buffer, support for the CUDA GPGPU programming API, and enough graphics power to push up to 80-billion pixels per second. Check out the whole release here.
(I debated about whether to cover this and decided to give it at least a little ink. Think it was a great idea or you couldn’t care less? I’d appreciate some feedback.)
