    My first real GPU cruncher was a 2nd hand nVidia GeForce GTX 260, which has come down with a broken fan a year or so ago, much to the chagrin of the power company.
    It is a lot cooler in the man cave too, nowadays. How good/bad are these nVidia cards over the years? I will compare the GTX x60 series for you.

    * -a, -b and -c are my designations, there are not to be found on the box of the card. You'd best check with GPU-Z what actual model you have of such a card.

    Note that the OEM cards are best left alone (with the exceeption of the GTX 660). Do not buy a system with such a card included, make your own systems containing the 'real' cards, they offer better value.
    Note also that the best DP performer, the GTX 560 Ti-c, does so at terrible efficiency. If you have the money to buy a card in this class and you want to go CUDA, buy a GTX 1060-b with GP106-400 GPU. Amazing (compared with the GTX 260) SP performance and rather efficient DP performance, be it at 1/32th (!) of the SP performance.

    Wow, great table Dirk... interesting to see the very last and newest one is the first one to reach the 1Gf/Watt ratio

    Brand X: The Money-Burners

    There are two ways of going broke with GPU computing. One is by buying a card that you can't afford to pay, the other is by buying a card which power needs are such that you can't afford to pay the power-bill.
    Just as with people that write about cars, who have the tendency to describe the latest Ferrari's, Lamborghini's and other unobtainable sports cars, I will now describe which nVidia-cards to avoid like the plague, however good performers they are. They will let you go broke both ways!

    The first at an affordable power usage -for nVidia- that is...

    Nice Posts Dirk, thanks for sharing





    Challenge me, or correct me, but don't ask me to die quietly.
