I am looking for laptop which supports CUDA. The main criteria is performance. Which mobile CUDA-capable card is the most powerful now? According to programming guide these are 9800M GTX (14 multiprocessors) and GeForce 9800M GT (12 MP). Am i right?
Did anybody have experience with CUDA-capable laptops?
Which performance should I expect in compare with 8800 GTX for example?
Can you suggest concrete laptop models with CUDA-capable cards?
You are correct on the number of Multiprocessors. The Quadro FX 3700M has 16 multiprocessors so it would be the most powerful single GPU. Quadro FX 1700m has only 4 multiprocessors so it would not be a very powerful options. If your code can handle multiple GPUs then some SLI options might be cheaper or more powerful. I think that https://secure.pctorque.com/system-configur…px?SystemsID=32 provides the most options for building a GPU notebook monster.
Sorting by 3DMark06 scores shows the 3700M on top (the SLI’s don’t count because CUDA can’t use them). The 9800M series isn’t terribly far behind it either (depending on which specific model you choose), but I don’t know how well 3DMark scores correlate with CUDA performance.
