I’m just about to get started with CUDA, and am looking at what graphics card to buy. My first thought was with the geforce range (lots of cores for cheap!), but then I found that double precision was throttled in this series, and also in other models. So, before I make my decision, I just want to make sure I got everything right with this. AFAIK this is the DP performance, as a fraction of SP performance:
Tesla series: 1/2 (full performance)
Quadro 4000-6000: 1/2 (full performance)
Quadro 600-2000: 1/12
GTX 5xx: 1/8
It has been remarkably hard to find these figures (or i’ve been looking in the wrong places…)!
If anyone could confirm these figures it would be greatly appreciated!
