In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Tesla M2090 are significantly better than the AMD Radeon R7 260X v2 PowerColor OC 1GB Edition.

The R7 260X has a 380 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the Tesla M2090. This results in the R7 260X providing 21.3 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The R7 260X has a 380 MHz higher core clock speed than the Tesla M2090, but the Tesla M2090 has 32 more Render Output Units than the R7 260X. As a result, the Tesla M2090 exhibits a 14.7 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the R7 260X. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The R7 260X was released over a year more recently than the Tesla M2090, and so the R7 260X is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the Tesla M2090.

The Tesla M2090 has 5120 MB more video memory than the R7 260X, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the Tesla M2090 also has superior memory performance overall.

The Tesla M2090 has 81.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the R7 260X, which means that the memory performance of the Tesla M2090 is much better than the R7 260X.

The Tesla M2090 has 512 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon R7 260X v2 PowerColor OC 1GB Edition has 896. However, the actual shader performance of the Tesla M2090 is 666 and the actual shader performance of the R7 260X is 784. The R7 260X having 118 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Tesla M2090 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The R7 260X transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Tesla M2090. This means that the R7 260X is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Tesla M2090.

The Tesla M2090 requires 250 Watts to run and the Radeon R7 260X v2 PowerColor OC 1GB Edition requires 105 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the Tesla M2090 and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the R7 260X. The Tesla M2090 requires 145 Watts more than the R7 260X to run. The difference is significant enough that the Tesla M2090 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the R7 260X.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Tesla M2090 is a Professional Graphics Card based on the First Revision of the Fermi Architecture.

Tesla M2090 Features a GPU Codenamed GF110 which is a Second Gen Fermi GPU and is Identical to the one used on the Gaming GeForce GTX 580. It offers DirectX Feature Level of 11.0 and has 16 Stream Multiprocessors activated offering a total of 512 Shader Processing Units, 56 TMUs and 48 ROPs.

The Central Unit runs at 650MHz.

Memory: Speed
The GPU is equipped with fast GDDR5 and Accesses the Frame Buffer through a 384-bit Memory Interface. The Memory Clock Operates at 925MHz.

Memory: Frame Buffer
The GPU can fill up a Memory Pool of up to 6GB.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 250W, it requires at least a 600W PSU and one available 6-pin with one available 8-pin connectors.

Tesla M2090 has a Core Configuration Similar to GeForce GTX 580 but is heavily underclocked.
As a Result and also because of the lack of Drivers that are Gaming Certified, Tesla M2090's Performance is roughly on par with the weaker GeForce GTX 570.

System Suggestions
Tesla M2090 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080. We recommend a High-End Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
Radeon R7 260X v2 PowerColor OC 1GB Edition is a Special Edition of AMD's Fast-Middle-Class Radeon R7 260X v2, created by PowerColor.

Overclock: Central Unit
The Central Unit has been increased from 1000MHz to 1030MHz.
