nVidia Tesla K10 8GB GDDR5 PCI-E x16 Computing Accelerator Processing Unit w/ Dual GK104 Kepler GPUs
The NVIDIA Tesla K10 graphic card was introduced into the market on May 2012. This video card is powered by 2 x 1536 cores each running at a clock speed of 745 MHz. The Tesla K10 has a memory capacity of 2 x 4 GB GDDR5. This graphic card memory has a bandwidth of up to 2 x 160 GB/s.
Performance And Power
The Tesla K10 can produce a total computing power of 2 x 2288.64 GFLOPS. In addition, this graphic can reach a pixel fill rate of 2 x 23.84 Gigapixels/s and a texture fill rate of 2 x 95.36 Gigatexels/s. The Tesla K10 graphic card consumes up to 250 W of power.
The Tesla K10 video card is compatible with motherboards with PCI-E 3.0 x 16 support. .
The Tesla K10 supports the following libraries: " DirectX 11.0, OpenCL 1.1, Shader Model 5.0 ". OpenGL is a cross language and multi-platform application programming interface for rendering 2D and 3D vector graphics. OpenGL is used to interact with a GPU to harness Hardware-accelerated rendering and eliminates the need to recompile shaders making it an efficient and performance oriented standard. Microsoft DirectX is an Application programming Interface for the Windows operating systems which Integrates well with AMD and NVIDIA GPUs. The Microsoft DirectX 10 is a significant step in 3D graphics. It features a highly optimized runtime, powerfull geometry sharders, and many other features. The Microsoft DirectX 11, introduced with Windows 7, brings numerous improvement over its precedessor DirectX 10. It is designed to be more efficient, supports sophisticated shading and texturing techniques and levearage the use of multi processors, resulting in smoother 3D animations. The open computing language (OpenCL) is programming interface used for general purpose programming across CPUs and GPUs and other processors. The standard gives developers the portability and efficiency of heterogeneous processing platforms.
