Not sure if that was directed at me (might as well have been) but if so, did I mention my faulty baseboard heating? Here at college the heat is on so high that I have an air conditioner running 24/7 but at home, my room is frequently in the 7-10º C range, so having a GPU to heat the room would be silly, but welcome. Thing is, I'd blow the circuit. I can't believe it uses so much power. Hence I'd have to use my custom machine (still not built) somewhere the wiring isn't 50+ years old.

nVidia never ceases to amaze...

There are rumors of GK104 Dynamic Clock Adjustment somewhat like Turbo Boost. Hopefully we are just two weeks away from new cards.

Oh look it's this thread again.

It looks like nVidia did take the gaming path with GK104 and the scalable GPCPU with GK110.

If you can get your hands on one. It might be limited to Quadro/Tesla cards where nVidia can charge outrageous prices compared to a retail GK104.
