    NVIDIA “What Would you Do with a Petaflop Supercomputer” Contest

    NVIDIA Corporation invites you to participate in the “What Would you Do with a Petaflop Supercomputer” Contest (hereinafter “Contest”). The winners of this Contest will receive exciting prizes courtesy of NVIDIA, subject to the following Official Rules.

    Authors of the three (3) winning abstracts will each receive one (1) NVIDIA Tesla GPU based on the new Kepler architecture, which have an estimated retail value of US$3,000 each.

    GK110 will debut in just three days, but this is the part that targets the HPC i.e. GPGPU community.
    We were told that the number of pre-orders for Kepler-based Tesla cards (Tesla 3000 Series) should exceed the overall number of
    Teslas shipped so far (over 150,000 units sold).

    Figured GK110 would be GPGPU only. I guess they people that were waiting for it can shell out their $3000 now.

    That's the premium price that Tesla commands. GF110 based are still ~$2500.

    It's certainly unclear whether GK110 will be offered in GeForce family.

    I doubt it, it would cannibalize sales of other cards. With the dedicated FP64 unit on the GK104, it's pretty obvious that they are just going to put a bunch more of those on a GK110 and make it for GPGPU. I actually kind of expect them to do this earlier, with the 5xx cards. I have a bunch of friends in school who do work on premeire, after effects, 3dsmax, etc that all use geforce cards to accelerate their work and not quadro's.

    But new CS6 will use OpenCL!!

    First 18,000 Teslas go straight to Oak Ridge Lab.
    Then they have to supply HPC customers and make some money :)

    Somewhere down the line when supply becomes a non-issue, they could offer it under GeForce,
    say for $800 and still make some money.

    But perf/$$ will certainly be well bellow GK104/SLI, hence such product would look weird, and very niche.
    So it boils down just how such part would perform under graphic workloads(gaming).

    My guess - by that time GK104 refresh makes more sense.

    Too bad the entry period is over =/ Would have been fun to give it a shot.
