AMD Shows Off Monstrous Professional Graphics Card... And Maybe The Radeon 7990

my roomate's aunt makes $83/hr on the laptop. She has been without work for 8 months but last month her pay was $8682 just working on the laptop for a few hours. Read more on this



But how does she service all her johns while on the laptop? I mean, maybe she could sit on it if it has a really big screen, and it must get warm. And what about leakage? How does she avoid shorting it out? Or is her vajayjay all dried out so she doesn't have to worry about it?

Yep, there's more than one way to shave Intel's cat... Break out the buzzsaw to their GPU profits, oh yeah!



Thing is way too long it will break brake bake yur montherboard.



This card tells NVidia to eat the peanuts out of my shit. I'll buy it, no hesitation.



I bet you've been waiting a long time to use that line


Number Six

It is incredibly hard to be excited at this in light of the GTX 690. Even on the HPC front, I have to ask what happened to the double-precision performance? AMD's website says the 7970 is capable of 947 GFLOPS. Multiply that by two and you should have close to 2 TFLOPS, yet AMD claims only 1 TFLOPS for the card. It's a case of 1+1 = 1. :(

NVIDIA's GK110-based Telsa K20 won't be out until Q4 2012, but even now NVIDIA is claiming more than 1 TFLOPS of double-precision performance for a card that will have a slightly higher power envelope than a GTX 680. It looks as if the single-processor Telsa K20 will easily have the best double-precision performance/watt.

AMD will most likely win on the price/performance. It should cost far less to manufacture two Tahiti chips than one GK110.

Weather not nVida will be able to get GK110 out in large quantities or not is something I'm wondering myself. The chip is loaded on the business side. I want to know how much they'll have to cut the design down to get the numbers they want.



Sounds good, I'm building a new system, might consider waiting until it comes out. It will be a big jump from my 5000 series. :D

Will need a big case though....



indeed a dualGPU solution from NVidia or AMD will be necessary for the dual-socket server I'm building 'soon' (IvyBridgeEP timeframe or later) for my studies, business et al.
