Subject: General Tech | September 29, 2010 - 12:11 PM | Jeremy Hellstrom
This was one of the more interesting GPU Technology Conferences, as the the GPU is not just about gaming anymore. Fans of distributed computing projects like Folding@Home are now familiar with the idea of using a GPU client and have been very pleased with the results. With the introduction of Fermi we saw nVIDIA GPUs that came on cards without a single graphical output port on them as they were specifically intended for scientific applications. This year nVIDIA has continued to focus on the utility of their architecture for non-graphics usage as is evidenced by their emphasis on performance per watt, not just pure performance per second. Drop by The Tech Report to read what their take on this years conference and what it could mean to the enthusiast.
"Nvidia's efforts to promote GPU computing are getting real traction in scientific research, engineering and
design, and other fields."
