It is always the flashy brother that everyone notices, even if you've never met them ... say the GTX590. However the other brother shouldn't be ignored because it turns out Telsa is pretty cool among the server crowd. Where once the humble math coprocessor went the M2090 GPU coprocessor races past, with a specially made, not bin sorted 40nm Fermi GPU running at 1.3GHz and GDDR5 at 1.85GHz which can pull some interesting ECC tricks and of course a ful 512 CUDA Cores. If you think that is a lot of power, NVIDIA told The Register they are recommending one M2090 per CPU core, not per physical CPU.
"GPU chipmaker Nvidia knows that it has to do more to grow its Tesla biz than slap some passive heat sinks on a fanless GPU card and talk up its CUDA parallel-programming tools. It has to keep delivering price/performance improvements, as well.
And that's exactly what it's doing with the new Tesla M2090 GPU coprocessor."
