NVIDIA today unveiled the Tesla™ M2090 GPU, the world's fastest parallel processor for high performance computing. In addition, the Tesla M2090 GPU achieved the fastest-ever performance in a key measure of scientific computation.
Equipped with 512 CUDA® parallel processing cores, the Tesla M2090 GPU delivers 665 gigaflops of peak double-precision performance, enabling application acceleration by up to 10x compared to using a CPU alone.
Sure, the M15x might have gone AWOL, but Dell has been kind enough to finally ship the beastly M18x to interested parties. This is not your run of the mill laptop. This is a full scale desktop replacement that weighs in at 16 pounds. The upside of all that mass is the amazing hardware packed into the unit.
