And your point is.......?

It's still a GPU it just doesn't output. No different than having an extra card in your PC that just folds.

NM removed, no need to argue this time.

That is just a GTX280 with workstation BIOS, and no output. FLOPs and Shaders match. Same PPD as the much cheaper (and more useful) GTX.

~7000 PPD, if you want to know. I doubt it will be easy getting GPU2 to run, though.

Sorry, I was looking at the link for the card and found this, in BRIGHT RED

Important Note: This board is NOT a video card. It has no display outputs for connecting a monitor. It is a processor that offloads the computation from the computer's CPU. Also note that for operation under Windows XP, this board requires a NVIDIA graphics display board or motherboard NVIDIA graphics. This is not a requirement for Linux operation.

I think it would be hard to make a dummy plug for this, since you need a GFX card for display, and this one has no outs.

The GTX280 has 4Gb of RAM?

Well, a GTX 280 with 4GB GDDR3.
Running at 800 MHz as well, as opposed to 1100 MHZ. Probably looser timings on top of that.

Useful for 32x AA, at WQXGA, at least on the Quaddro. GPU2 packs an amazing several megabytes?

Sun is absolutly right, it is based on the same Chip as the GTX Cards are.
depending on the Clock Speed (mainly of the Shader Units) it will be as fast as a Desktop GTX Card.
The bigger Memory will not help the folding performance.

And it should be able to run [email protected] as it in the list of CUDA enabled products.

At least on Windows XP it will.
But I don't know if these Cards trick out Vista (that disables Cards without an attached monitor )...

So if you want to split hairs:
-GPU was a marketing name introduces by nVidia.
-it is today common used to describe the Chip on a Graphics Card or mainboard to accelerate graphics output operations.
-the word says nothing about having a DVI slot or not
-Testla Boards can be described as a GPGPU on a PCB Board
-nVidia calls the Testa Board a Computing Processor
