1. Nvidia’s next generation graphics card (Kepler) will not be released until 2012. Kepler will be succeeding the Fermi architecture and use a 28 nm production process. Kepler cards will triple the dual-precision floating point performance of Fermi and hit up to 6 dp GFlops, while its successor Maxwell (scheduled for a 2013 release) is expected to with almost 16 dp GFlops.
2. J.P. Morgan, the world’s largest investment bank, is using Tesla GPUs to speed up its risk calculations across a range of products. How much, you ask? J.P. Morgan saw 40 times speedups, thanks to Tesla silicon.
