According to a report from KitGuru.net, the parallel computing architecture which boosts GPU performance, the GTX465 could be Nvidia’s first GPU without the technology. It reckons that there is a possibility that Nvidia will deliver Fermi completely CUDA-less.
With CUDA out of the equation, Kit Guru reckons that the GTX465 will be both faster and easier to build. At the moment, Nvidia dropping CUDA on the GTX4665 is speculation. However, considering the amount of effort it has gone to in promoting the CUDA architecture it seems somewhat a strange move. Bossman Jen-Hsun Huang said at a recent FiRe conference that technologies such as CUDA are high on the priority list for Nvidia.
