In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 670 PNY 2GB Edition are massively better than the Nvidia Tesla C2050.

The GTX 670 was released over a year more recently than the Tesla C2050, and so the GTX 670 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the Tesla C2050.

The Tesla C2050 has 1024 MB more video memory than the GTX 670, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, the overall memory performance is about the same.

The GTX 670 has 48.3 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Tesla C2050, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 670 is noticeably better than the Tesla C2050.

The GeForce GTX 670 PNY 2GB Edition has 1344 Shader Processing Units and the Tesla C2050 has 448. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 670 is 1317 and the actual shader performance of the Tesla C2050 is 515. The GTX 670 having 802 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 670 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Tesla C2050.

The GTX 670 transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Tesla C2050. This means that the GTX 670 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Tesla C2050.

The GeForce GTX 670 PNY 2GB Edition requires 170 Watts to run and the Tesla C2050 requires 238 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the GTX 670 and a PSU with at least 750 Watts for the Tesla C2050. The Tesla C2050 requires 68 Watts more than the GTX 670 to run. The difference is significant enough that the Tesla C2050 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GTX 670.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce GTX 670 PNY 2GB Edition is a renamed GeForce GTX 670 with no new features - not even a new cooling system. Its performance is exactly like the reference card.The NVIDIA Tesla C2050 and C2070 computing processors fuel the transition to parallel computing and bring the performance of a small cluster to the desktop. Based on the next-generation CUDA architecture codenamed “Fermi”, the 20-series family of Tesla GPUs support many “must have” features for technical and enterprise computing including c++ support, Ecc memory for uncompromised accuracy and scalability, and a 7X increase in double precision performance compared Tesla 10-series GPUs. The Tesla c2050 and c2070 GPUs are designed to redefine high performance computing and make supercomputing available to everyone. Compared to the latest quad-core cPUs, Tesla c2050 and c2070 computing Processors deliver equivalent supercomputing performance at 1/10th the cost and 1/20th the power consumption.
