Number Six

Compared to NVIDIA's lower-priced priced Tesla K20, AMD's card falls short in terms of GFLOPS/W. The S10000 is 3.94 GFLOPS/W whereas the Tesla K20 is 5.2 GFLOPS/W (double-precision).

However, AMD is the bang-for-the-buck leader. The S10000 gives you 0.4112 GFLOPS/$ whereas the K20 is only 0.3657 GFLOPS/$ (double-precision).

Now, before anyone comments that the best NVIDIA offering is the K20X, it's not a fair to use the K20X in comparison to the S10000. The K20X is not designed to be a simple add-in card and it has no cooling fan. But if we were to compare, the fanless K20X has a staggering 5.574 GFLOPS/W. Nice.

Hmmm...foreshadowing to the Radeon HD 10K Series?

Looks pretty good. One small marketing qualm however, S10000 looks a lot like $10000. I thought the price was ten thousand when I was first reading.

Jesus christ, that thing is beasty. Doesn't look half bad either. That's a beautiful card to be intended for server use.
