| Computer Systems News | Posted: Sep 22, 2010 1:03 am

Nicole Scott of Netbook News is on the ground for us again and this time she is at NVIDIA's GPU Technology Conference in San Jose.

 

In this video she hunted down Jason Chen from Exxact Corporation who gave us an introduction of one of its high-end GPU workstations based around a couple Intel Westmere Xeon 5650 processors and a staggering four NVIDIA Tesla C2050 GPU computing processors which comes to over 1,700 cores when all counted up.

 

 

The system had a rendering benchmark from Tech-X which showcases the raw power of CPU versus GPU rendering. As you can see in the video above, on the left the CPU is drawing at around 1 FPS or so and on the right the GPU is drawing at around 65 FPS.
