NVidia announces something to play with

NVidia announced the K20 and K20X which will theoretically deliver 1.17TFlops/225W and 1.31TFlops/235W respectively. Intel Xeon Phi perform with only 1.01TFLops/225W but programs can be more easily adjusted to run on them.

Provided we manage to get our hands on both we’ll perform tests with both technologies because in the end what matters for us is the real performance we can get out of 3000W not the theoretical maximal performance per card.
