Yea true, but I wonder how this card would do with playing an intensive graphics game like FarCry 2 with everything turned up...

I really don't understand what the specs mean on this either...
Maybe someone that knows this would care to elaborate?

Don't look all that much does it? This a card for designers, CAD folk and such?

Quadros can be slow with some games. I don't know if this new card is slow in gaming, certainly not designed with gaming in mind.

It would render top notch realistic graphics for movies, using far more effects than our cards can do.

That's not done on the fly real-time though.

Heh.

Just nVidia's marketing lingo for a Stream Processor, which was nVidia's marketing lingo for the Pixel Shader fragment of the now fragmented Pixel Pipeline back when 96 Stream Processors sounded cooler than 96 Shaders.

CUDA is nVidia's terminology for their stream processing environment. It covers everything from the cores on the GPU through to the C compiler used to compile the code.

Quote from Toms Hardware

"The Quadro FX cards are design to target the Computer-Aided Design (CAD) and Digital Content Creation (DCC) audience. CAD and DCC applications do not require the insane ‘fill rate’ capabilities of the GeForce line of graphics cards, targeted at consume video games. The Quadro’s cater to true color reproduction, extremely high resolution imaging and rendering, extreme floating point calculations, the list goes on. All the features most required in industries where precision rather than speed is of the highest importance.

With that being said – NO, this card will not play Crysis or Far Cry 2 any better than what you currently have, it will actually play it worse."

Which brings to mind-I wonder if this card draws a scary amount of Wattage?

Shouldn't be any more than it's GeForce Twin. After all, they're pretty much from the same slice of silicon.
