[ATTACH=RIGHT]17139[/ATTACH]NVIDIA's CUDA parallel computer architecture is picking up steam and quickly becoming one of the de-facto solution for producing high-end video content. When time is money, companies such as Industrial Light & Magic, and Adobe, cannot always cram every feature or pixel into the finished product. Most consumers might not realize that production technology is a major player in the race for quality, but NVIDIA's Quadro and Tesla product lines, coupled with the CUDA architecture, will determine the future of video as we know it.

[B]ATI Takes the Lead[/B] [ATTACH=RIGHT]16273[/ATTACH]After a long stretch of dominance, NVIDIA has fallen behind ATI in discrete GPU shipments. According to Mercury Research, ATI claims 51% of the market, and NVIDIA has slipped to, you guessed it, 49%. NVIDIA was the leader this time last year with 59% market share, illustrating about-face in overall shipments. ATI also took the 2nd place position from NVIDIA in the integrated GPU market (IGP), pulling in 24.5% compared to NVIDIA's 19.8%. Intel has traditionally led the pack, and clocked in last quarter at a healthy 54% of IGP shipments. These are no doubt tough …

[ATTACH=right]15788[/ATTACH]High-end video accelerator tools now make password recovery twentyfold faster than the current top of the line quad-core CPUs. Unlike current recovery tools, such as those offered by Intel, [URL="http://www.nvidia.com/object/fermi_architecture.html"]these new Fermi-based video boards[/URL] exceed benchmark speeds of even previous NVIDIA Tesla solutions based on the previous-generation chipsets. CPUs will still prevail, but GPUs found in modern video cards such as NVIDIA GTX 480 are becoming the new standard. Depending on applications, CUDA-based GPUs can contribute more to the total performance of the PC than the central processing unit. In some applications, their role is greater than the role of …
