Interesting that the move is from CPU to GPU from Nvidia

 

The upgrade is expected to involve the addition of almost 19,000 Tesla K20s. Each is set to have a list price of between $1,500 and $2,000 (£930-£1,245), although the laboratory will get a discount for buying in bulk.

 

Heres me thinking my upgrade was expensive.

A machine like Titan has a budget of around 10 megawatts, and that costs roughly $10m per year just for the electricity”

 

Say what?..

And FSX would still be using the CPU recources.

...and that consists of a single speedy Intel Celeron running at an amazing 2.4 GHz. Of course after the customary FSX tweaks I think we could run FSX at 10 FPS with no autogen or traffic... :LMAO:
