If you’re about to purchase both AutoCAD 2009 and a new PC this is worth taking a look at.
Each of the bundles include:
•AutoCAD® 2009 Software, the latest version of the world's leading 2D and 3D CAD application.
•HP xw4600 Workstation with Intel® Core™ 2 Duo E7200 processor offering next-generation performance technologies in a powerful, flexible and reliable workstation.
•NVIDIA Quadro® Professional Graphics providing unmatched power and performance.
BTW. I noticed in NVIDIA’s newsletter NVIDIA Tesla Personal Supercomputer. It is based on the NVIDIA CUDA parallel computing architecture and powered by up to 960 parallel processing cores. I wouldn’t mind having that as a rendering machine.
