Tom’s Hardware has tested two mainstream NVIDIA cards (GeForce 9600 GT and GeForce 9800 GTX) on several CUDA-enabled applications. The applications were:

More on SLI

If you are going to purchase a new computer (or make it yourself), you should definitely think about graphics — for CAD/CAM, gaming, searching for extraterrestrial intelligence at home or password cracking. Of course, thinking of budget, too. I hope you’re already aware of NVIDIA SLI which allows to use multiple video cards, but how a single dual-GPU compares to two single-GPU ones?

NVIDIA about Intel

Considering Intel Core i7? Read Nvidia Says Core i7 Isn’t Worth It and nVidia calls Core i7 a waste of money first. We’d agree that investing into GPU(s) is really a good idea, especially if you need to crack passwords.

17" screen, Intel Core 2 Extreme processor (four cores) plus NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260M — an excellent device not only for gaming, but also for wardriving. Get it from Sager, and just add Wireless Security Auditor.

Finally, nVidia’s GT300 specifications revealed! 512 cores (remember that GT200 has only 240), which means about 3 TFLOPS — can you imagine that? We’re also expecting the new generation of Tesla supercomputers based on those GPUs. GT300 also gives direct hardware access for CUDA 3.0, DirectX 11, OpenGL 3.1 and OpenCL.

Can you imagine 10,080 processing cores? And how about 40 TFlops? Thanks to NVIDIA Tesla — this is 42 C1060 cards only.

Nvidia has announced that it will now offer Nvidia Quadro FX 4800 for Apple Mac Pro systems. Good idea! More on CNET.

NVIDIA GT300

According to The Inquirer, Nvidia GT300 promised in October. Should be a good video card for GPU-accelerated password cracking :).

The only our product that works with ATI cards (right now) is Wireless Security Auditor, but interesting news anyway: ATI Radeon HD 4770 Info Leaked. I’ll second the editor’s opinion that it will make a good competition to NVIDIA’a 9800GT (of course, supported by EWSA, too).

You should be aware that Distributed Password Recovery and Wireless Security Auditor work not only with NVIDIA GeForce cards and Tesla supercomputers (in terms of GPU acceleration), but with professional Quadro cards, too. We never compared the performance of GeForce and Quadro, though. Curious? Then read the Nvidia Quadro FX 4800: Workstation Graphics At Its Finest? article published at Tom’s Hardware today.
