I am down to just my 3 GPU's crunching.

The GTX-460 & GTX-560 doing SETI and my ancient HD4830 doing Milkyway.

The HD7750 is the screen runner and gamer.

GTX 670 rumored to launch today. Thought I'd share a couple of interesting links before it does...

GTX 670 almost the same as 680? Wtf?

I wonder if nVidia will show up to give Seti a hand...

NVIDIA and the Folding@Home group have sent over a benchmarkable version of the client with preliminary optimizations for GK104. Folding@Home and similar initiatives are still one of the most popular consumer compute workloads, so it’s something NVIDIA wants their GPUs to do well at.




...and does so by using fewer watts than a 560Ti!:o

At 317W from the wall it’s 45W less than the GTX 680 for roughly 90% of the gaming performance, and this is in fact is lower power consumption than anything except the Radeon HD 7870. Even the GTX 560 Ti (which isn’t in this chart) is higher at 333W, reflecting the fact that GK104 is the true successor to GF114, and which would make GTX 670 the successor to GTX 560 from a design perspective.

Been working for some time quite closely with their registered development program. Einstein devs' & my own reports apparently got some bug fixes in play, and Kepler intro went smoothly as far as I'm concerned.

Newer builds (than x41g release) in testing are scaling quite nicely on Kepler GPUs thanks @ 1.5-2x 6.10 on GTX 680 ;), though indications are the GPU is still underutilised, and it'll take some time to push the architecture as far as possible.

It's looking like x41x (in closed Pre-Alpha) might be Stock Cuda multibeam V7, though only a Cuda 3.2 build for widest driver compatibility. Cuda 4.1 (at least, maybe optionally 4.2 for Keplers) will be available third party.

Still got some loose ends to tie up before pestering Eric with an updated build to install at Beta. The V7 multibeam introduction should IMO go fairly smoothly, and see some further technological jumps afterwards.

My son just ordered one. I see we are back, or did we just stay, at the prices here being the same numbers but the symbol changes. when the exchange rate is £1 = $1.61 in my books $399 should equal £248 but are £300 before taxes.

Well looking at that graph I think I'll stick to the GTX580................

Also the question remains: dp performance?

Being the same GPU cut back a notch, dp performance will be similarly cutback. Those needing high double precision performance for other purposes (not a heavy impact here), will probably want to wait for 'BigK'

Just ordered 2 of the eVGA SSC Signatures at Newegg. Finally I find a worthy set for replacement of the trusty GTX 480.

So now I just gotta figure out the quirks with SaH and running on multiple cards. Heh. Been quite an upgrade month for me Q9650 w/480 to 3770K w/ 670 x 2!! Can't wait to see how these things perform.

If you've been relying on that 480 for room heating & noise masking purposes like I was, you might need to get a warm blanket & leave the TV on for background noise.

Ok so I am quoting my own post, but it seems I have backing.

Ok... who knows a good "shrink?"

(for non-English speakers; that's "head-shrinker" which is slang for Psychiatrist)

There is definitely something wroooong with me. Very, very wrooooong with me.

I haven't been this excited about a thing since I bought my very first GTX 460 SOC model.

And that, in and of itself, says there is something very, very, very wrooooong with me.

This is better than... wait; no... no it's not.

...but it's getting awfully CLOSE!

I may be able to help, my brother in law is a shrink, but to be honest with you I think he is madder than me, so that may not help.

He may have an excuse though, one, as he married my sister and two, they have four daughters in the late teens and early twenties.

My father-in-law was a shrink. I'm hip.

I've got one about to turn 16 and another that just turned 18. I grok the whole scene.

Does anyone have any useful drugs they'd like to share with an unfortunate soul?

I hope I got my order in on time to be delivered tomorrow. Darn weekends.

Someone i used to know was a psych nurse.
He was of the opinion that the only difference between the doctors & the paitients was that the doctors were allowed to leave while unsupervised.

DispalyPort even :-) Hehe. Are you sure that's the real thing, and not something manufactured in a basement factory for illegal computer hardware, somewhere in China?

If they can't even get the word Display spelled correctly, then at least I would wonder if it was the real thing, or some cheap copy of a GTX 670.

No, they are real. Those boxes were on my desk and the cards are now in my machine. MSI really rushed to get them to retailers it would appear.

you can even see it on the MSI webpage:
