In the forums, most folks are understandably looking at the 8800 GTX, but I was wondering about the most recently announced release. Our application may not be so much as financially limited, but capability limited. So, I am hoping for more specifications.
The Quadro 5600 FX states that it supports CUDA programming, but gives very few details after that. The tech specs read 1.5 GB GDDR3 with 76.8 GB/s memory bandwith, etc… http://www.nvidia.com/docs/IO/40049/quadro…0_datasheet.pdf
All of this looks promising. Specific CUDA questions:
Q1: Does the Quadro 5600 FX support 64-bit floats for CUDA programming?
Q2: How do the number of multi-processors compare to the 8800 GTX?
Q3: Estimates on CUDA performance for codes (FLOPs, or other reference comparisons)?
Q4: Any other significant differences (for CUDA) between the two architectures?
I appreciate any extra information provided.
