This may not be the right place to ask this question, but can SE take advantage of nvidia Tesla cards? I haven't found them mentioned at all in the forums, but you can find used ones with 6GB of RAM for fairly cheap. I'm wondering if sticking a Tesla inside a machine with a low-end graphics card would improve anything or be a waste of money.
I don't know if anyone can answer that. As far as I know no one has reported testing SE with a Tesla card. All I can say is that SE was made to run with gaming GPUs, meaning Nvidia GeForce and AMD Radeon cards. People running other types of cards, like Nvidia Quadro, have sometimes reported issues. Since I don't know anything about how Tesla cards work, I can't guess whether they'd run SE well or not.
