A Kepler-based Quadro line
Armed with updated workstation benchmarks, we have two systems from iBuyPower in the lab today: a $2,000 quad-core entry-level rig, and an $8,000 sixteen-core behemoth. With $6,000 separating the two, is the performance spread really what you'd expect?
We've recently put a lot of effort into designing a custom benchmark suite for testing workstation-class hardware. It's a work in progress, first used to test Intel's Xeon 5600-series CPUs. Today we have some results gleaned from HP's Z400 workstation.
SIGGRAPH 2010, the annual computer graphics trade show of the ACM, started is exhibition Tuesday and Nvidia demonstrated at its booth the latest Quadro Fermi graphics cards.
In conjunction with SIGRAPH 2010, workstation vendor BOXX technologies has announce d the availability of their new 3dBOXX 4880 Xtreme, what it is billing as the “Worlds Fastest Single-processor Workstation” -- configured with “Enhanced Performance.”
