Nvidia GT300 has 512 cores, 6Gb of gddr5 ram, and has 3 billion transistors. Link: http://brightsideofnews.com/news/2009/9/30/nvidia-gt300s-fermi-architecture-unveiled-512-cores2c-up-to-6gb-gddr5.aspx

It is also cGPU and claims to natively support c++:

A GPU supports C++ natively?
Ferni architecture natively supports C [CUDA], C++, DirectCompute, DirectX 11, Fortran, OpenCL, OpenGL 3.1 and OpenGL 3.2. Now, you've read that correctly - Ferni comes with a support for native execution of C++. For the first time in history, a GPU can run C++ code with no major issues or performance penalties and when you add Fortran or C to that, it is easy to see that GPGPU-wise, nVidia did a huge job.


And also said it can execute integer operations:

What makes a single unit important is the fact that it can execute an integer or a floating point instruction per clock per thread.

Can this be used for chess in the future?

> per clock


this is the problem :)
