[Lance Bachelder] "Think you may want to go back and re-read the Anandtech review - they say the compute test they did does NOT work with dual GPU cards."

The first one, yes, but the one immediately after that test does optimize for multiple GPUs. And Tahiti dual blew the Kepler dual out of the water.

[Lance Bachelder] "I'm thinking that nVidia wouldn't spend 4 years developing Kepler as a upgrade to Fermi if they didn't think it was a good thing? "

There must also be a reason there are no Fermi Quardos or Teslas (yet). Kepler (so far) is lousy on GPGPU tasks compared to its predecessor and its peers from AMD. AnandTech closed with a reference to a forthcoming Big Kepler, which would presumably be a different story and be the future of the Quadro and Tesla products.

[Lance Bachelder] "There is no evidence that an app like Premiere that can take advantage of CUDA technology will be better or worse using Kepler vs. Fermi - we won't know until CS6 is released, Adobe certifies the new cards and folks actually put them to the test in real-world situations."

NVIDIA is pushing their Fermi-powered Quadro and Tesla products for CS6. Does Adobe rank the cards' performance when they certify them?
