Confusion about Nvidia CUDA Archticture and TESLA GPU !
I am confused about the two terms CUDA and Coprocessor in Tesla GPU'S .
CUDA is an Archtictue that enables developers specially developers who develope resource demanding applications such as video processing software
Coprocessor is actually any processing chip (other than the CPU) that acts like the CPU taking some load off it Example : Creative X-Fi sound cards have a proccesing chip and ram taking the Audio proccesing off the CPU and onto the sound card !
Now the Tesla GPU has CUDA and its a Coproccesor
Here comes the question... If the coproccesor can act like a CPU does this mean it can work with any software without supporting CUDA?!
And where the Heck can i get a hold of a K20X Tesla GPU online and for how much money?!

Tesla is not an X86 processor and cant run Windows
I want to get the thing running and Tesla is my only option for high performance can you help me
Well here is where you can get a hold of one. If you are a working professional they are mighty expensive but there you go To my knowledge Tesla and Quadro work together so something like the K5000 and the Telsa work together at least from what I gather I was listening to what this man had to say.
