Resolution question. All of the Quadra FX and GeForce Cards show a digital resolution max but the tesla’s do not in the product specs.
I understand tesla’s are primarily used in high end computation and not as display cards… BUT when using cuda cores to do GPU based 3D rendering the model loads into video memory based on the lowest video ram capability of the cards you have installed. So if you have 2 Geforce 470s and a Tesla C2070 you only really have 1G available to load in your mesh to your rendering program. In some cases you can turn off cards but not always. So even though GeForce cards are much more cost efffective for GPU Cuda rendering if your models are large you have to go Quadra or Tesla. QuadraFX5800 ram-to-cuda core ratio is poor… so the Tesla starts to have some appeal… lots of ram and a decent number of cuda cores.
The next question is resolution. If you are doing print resolution for large posters you need to be able to spec large native render sizes.
So finally my question:
What is the max display resolution of a tesla C2070
The single video out on T20 cards is new, and a minor deal, really, they are for crunching numbers.
Tech sites have speculated that the C2070 cards will be designed to the full spec of the GTX100 design at 512 cores. Whether this happens or not is unknown, but nVidia aimed low with their prerelease announcement.
I stand by the 3rd statement - an announced price is a good guideline, but fab issues (or successes) may change the final price. And it did hit my (admittedly broad) range.
