NVIDIA has recently revealed a spec sheet on its next-generation Tesla cards. Tesla is targated at professionals and business consumers.
According to the specifications made available by the company, the new Fermi based cards will have one cluster of shaders less than some of the hiogh-end consumer parts will have, for the GF100/Tesla T20 graphics processing unit (GPU) comes with 448 stream processors.
It was believed that Tesla C2000 graphics cards would come with 512 Stream processors. NVIDIA is planning to release two new cards, the Tesla C2050 and C2070, which will feature a single-chip design with 3GB and 6GB of GDDR5 memory, respectively. The memory comes with a 384-bit interface and will work at frequency levels of 1.8GHz and 2GHz, with NVIDIA claiming that its new cards will be capable of delivering double precision performance in the range of 520GFlops to 630GFlops.
The Tesla T20 graphics processing unit, the new cards will pair an 8-pin PCI-Express power connector with another 6-pin PCI Express connector, with a specified 225W TDP. By comparison, the company's current GeForce GTX 285, dual-GPU GTX 295 and Tesla C1050 have a maximum heat dissipation set at 204W, 289W and 187.8W, respectively.
