    The GPU world gets more interesting everyday. In fact it is the only mainstream computing element epseeing innovation anymore. The thing that kills me with these video cards is that they now come with more RAM than I have ever owned.

    I'm really hurting for a new computer, I just built OpenCascade on my machine and it took like 170 minutes to compile.

    On the other hand, we can see here a rational upgrade path for next years Mac Pro rev. Both NVidia and AMD are putting much effort into the performance segment because the mainstream segment is slowly going away with the embedded solutions. I have to wonder about the wattage on this card, I've yet to read the referenced article but did pick up a news blurb on the card. Maybe tomorrow.
