I was sure that there were multiple threads for this already, but for some reason I’m not finding in the archives. Apologies for duplication:
I’m parting out a new workstation for CUDA use, and I just wanted to clarify a couple things. First off, the GTX285, TeslaC1060, and FX5800 all use the same GPU, correct? And the primary end difference being 1-2GB ram on the 285, and 4GB on the Tesla and FX cards? Memory aside, are there any real-world performance comparisons between the cards?
As it stands now, I can’t see any reason for spending ~$3000 for an FX5800 or ~$1500 for a C1060, when a $400 GTX285 seems like it’ll give me the same performance (provided of course I’m fitting everything into the ram.) Could someone point out what I’m overlooking?
