I have been looking up to build a computing platform from the Fermis.
The issue now arises to decide between the GTX590 and Tesla C2070.
I fail to understand what tesla can achieve that the GTX 590 can not except for the support of greater memory.
here is a basic refresher
GTX 590(from manufacturers website)
1024 CUDA Cores
630 MHz GPU
Memory Clock (MHz) 1707MHz
3072MB (1536MB per GPU)Standard Memory Config
768-bit (384-bit per GPU)Memory Interface Width
331 Memory Bandwidth (GB/sec)
448 CUDA cORES
FREQUENCY OF CUDA CORES 1.15 Ghz
MEMORy SPEED 1.5 GHz
384 bit memory interface
144 Gbps Bandwidth
- The nvidia documentation shows 1.15 Ghz as operating frequency for CUDA cores for tesla 2070.Is it the analogous specification to the 630 Mhz for the GTX 590.And if it is how come such a great difference between cards of similar architecture
2)Apart from that and max memory support ,everything turns out to be in favour of GTX 590(4 of them will be used, liquid cooled,so i presume the memory issue is addressed).
3)Being a GF110 does GTX 590 also support ECC?
4)Where do Quadros stand in midst of all these?
Any light on these doubts that have been haunting me for quiet some time will be highly and overly appreciated
