PC Games Hardware writes NVIDIA is expected to show off the first (real) Tesla cards based on the upcoming Fermi architecture at Supercomputer 09, this expo takes place from November 14 to 20, 2009 in Portland, Oregon.
"Now, I have one right here. This, Ladies and Gentlemen, this puppy here is Fermi” - with this sentence and the related graphics card dummy, which didn't even have a GPU, Nvidia boss Jen-Hsun Huang caused quite a stir at the GTC 09. But now it has been announced that Tesla GPUs and live demos showing Fermi in action would be displayed at the Supercomputing 09.
The announcement on the Nvidia website about SC09:
Must See Demos
Tuesday, November 17 - Thursday November 19 | NVIDIA Booth # 2365
• See "Fermi” in Action
Come see a live demonstration of the next generation CUDA™ GPU computing architecture, codenamed "Fermi”. The Fermi-based Tesla™ GPUs are mass market parallel processors and fuel the HPC industry's transition to parallel processing. Compared to the latest quad-core CPUs, the Fermi-based Tesla GPUs deliver equivalent performance at 1/20th the power consumption and 1/10th the cost.
