Nvidia GPUs Used for Serious Business. Seriously.

Our primary usage for the latest and greatest GPUs are for getting smoother, prettier visuals from our games. But there's a whole other practical use for GPUs in industries outside of the enthusiast PC consumer.

Some of these applications of GPU technology were talked about at the GPU Technology Conference this week. In fact, if one were to judge the main use of the graphics technology from this particular day at the conference alone, one would easily conclude that GPUs were all for serious business.

Check out the Nvidia blogs below detailing the different applications.

    Seriously, gamers are paying for the majority of R&D and production of these cards for serious business. I hope Nvidia can be more serious with us and AMD/ATI.
