Nvidia GTC 2010: GPUs for 3D Audio, Robot Cars

Nvidia's GPU Technology Conference wrapped up for 2010. While we may think of GPUs being the key driver of our graphics – particularly our games – there's some very serious applications that take advantage of the GPUs strengths over traditional CPUs.

Here's a wrap up from the final day:

GPUs used for on 3D Audio

Cancer Research and Supercomputing

Sportvision Augmented Reality Enabled by GPU Computing

Fireside Chat with Jen-Hsun Huang and Quentin Hardy

    ^ Nah, Nvidia is doing much better than ATI in professional studios. Their new Quadro 6000 overkills the FirePro 3D V9800, ATI may have to do some catching up there. Plus, their underpowered Teslas are doing quite good too.
