nVIDIA's Fermi based answer to AMD's FirePro

Subject: Graphics Cards | October 5, 2010 - 11:56 AM |

nVIDIA has released information on their two upcoming professional level Quadro graphics cards.  Neither are going to be the upper end of the lineup, as you can see by the CUDA core count which even on the midranged Quadro 2000 has less than a GTX 460, 192 versus 336, which implies six streaming multiprocessors.  The one thing not mentioned in The Inquirer's article is how anyone is supposed to locate these cards when there are so many outdated and similarly named FX cards on the mar

New drivers means new SLI and Crossfire results

It seems a really good idea keeping an eye on graphics driver updates right now, with a battle for one of the sweetest spots for gamers being fought between single card and dual card setups that cost about the same price.  The contenders are the GTX 480 and 460 SLI as well as the 5870 in CrossFireX and the variable is the ability for the driver to improve scaling in new versions.  Since an extra card has been added, the ability for the driver to work properly often changes from game to game and when you bring multiple monitors into the equation it can change even more.

The FirePro V9800 4GB graphics card is the new king of hill from AMD for the professional user and with support for 6 displays, it has a lot to offer. The Fermi-based Quadro cards offer strong competition in the performance field but in terms of features the FirePro line is still difficult to beat.

My how they've grown, mid-rage multi-GPU rematch
