Under Windows, the Tesla system shares the driver with the graphics card. This means that an NVIDIA graphics card is required.
We strongly recommend that customers use a newer NVIDIA graphics board with Tesla products. It is best to use a Quadro/NVS graphics card, since they are built for the professional environment that high-performance computing products such as Tesla are usually deployed in. So, the recommended cards (in decreasing order of recommendation) are:
· FX 4600, FX 5600, FX 570, FX 370, FX 1700, NVS 290, FX 3700, FX 1600M, FX 3600M, FX 360M, FX 570M or NEWER Quadro Series
· FX 4500, FX 1500, FX 1500M, FX 2500M, FX 3500, FX 3500M, FX 4500 X2, FX 5500, FX 350, FX 350M, NVS 120M Blade, FX 560, FX 560M Blade
· GeForce 8 or 7 series or NEWER GeForce series
