Beyon3D has taken a closer look at NVIDIA's new Tesla 10 models and the CUDA 2.0 technology:
Similarly, CUDA has also come a long way. In many industries, we are still in the software development phase and large deployments are unimaginable; however, revenue will definitely still start rolling this year. Furthermore, the number of companies in an advanced phase of development seems to guarantee good momentum going into 2009 and 2010, generating a significant and hard to neglect head start against both AMD and Intel’s GPGPU solutions throughout the HPC market.
However, the original G80-based Tesla line-up does not seem to have generated an overwhelming amount of revenue, with many of the initial sales likely coming from companies prototyping the technology and some universities. Today’s announcement of a new generation of Tesla cards is thus especially significant, as it will likely represent the first GPGPU line-up shipping in large relative volumes.
