NVIDIA Tesla: GPU computing gets its own brand

Wednesday 20th June 2007, 08:30:00 PM, written by Rys

Being able to witness the earnest birth of a new computing industry is a special thing. In the last few years, efforts to use programmable commodity graphics hardware for things other than graphics have gained pace, and now there''s a legit multi-million dollar industry surrounding it.

Today sees NVIDIA further legitimise what they call GPU computing as they introduce Tesla, their third brand based around discrete PC GPU production. Using the famous G80 graphics processor, the first round of Tesla products joins GeForce and Quadro in their product ranks. CUDA is the conduit of course, and we have an article that lets you know what Tesla is all about.

We've also got interviews with Andy Keane, General Manager of the GPU Computing Group at NVIDIA, and Dave Kirk, Chief Scientist, regarding Tesla, CUDA, the future of GPU computing, and better incorporating parallel programming into education, among myriad other things.

Following CUDA's 1.0 release in a week or so, we''ll cover that and interview Ian Buck, Software Manager for CUDA, to talk more about the software side.
