I had checked the specs of GTX 980 Ti here >> http://www.geforce.com/hardware/desktop-gpus/geforce-gtx-980-ti/specifications
I was wondering if anyone has tested it for general purpose computing & has formed any insight.
My friend and I plan to purchase a GPU for our lab. We have projects in lab on time-series and optimizations (including evolutionary algorithms). We might also have other students who wants to work on Deep Learning techniques. We require general purpose computing (with double precision if possible).
We currently have a budget constraint of 700 USD. We are looking for a GPU that we can buy and insert in the cabinet-slot of a Dell OptiPlex 9020 Desktop computer (business-class, Core i7, Win7 X64, 8 GB RAM).
GTX 980 Ti is the best we could find so far. We hope that it wouldn’t cause any power issues. If you have other suitable suggestions, please provide. I had worked shortly on GPGPUs in 2011 and went out of touch till now. Please forgive any mistakes in understanding of the new technologies.
I couldn’t place this question under other sections. So, I posted here under ‘programming and performance’. Thank you for your understanding and help.
