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.
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.
Uh its not a GPU because there arn't any DVI slots in the back, for anybody who bothered to look.
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
