I was told the Tesla 1060 board I use at work cost ~$2000. As far as I can tell it has the exact same chip as the GTX 280 ($400), minus the display hardware and 4x more RAM.
So, why the price difference? To what extent is it because Tesla chips are taken from the highest quality bin and to what extent is it price discrimination? NVIDIA, employees, don’t
be afraid to answer - I don’t have anything against price discrimination. If people want to use the GPU for high stakes applications where you don’t want errors, then they can afford to pay more.
