NVIDIA GRID Hardware Chart

Posted by Benny Tritsch on Jun 1, 2016 9:00:00 AM

When Ruben Spruijt and I presented our session “Graphics for Virtual Desktops and Apps – 2016 Edition” at BriForum in London last week, one of our PowerPoint slides showed a chart comparing the different GRID cards. The chart includes lots of information, such as number of GPUs per card, GPU type, clock speed, number of GPU cores, performance (TFLOPS), memory size, maximum number of vGPU concurrent users, form factor, maximum power consumption and more. It’s the kind of charts you can talk about for hours – or just use it as an overview without looking at the details. Ruben and I updated the chart last minute after NVIDIA’s official announcement of the Tesla M10 card only 24 hours prior to our session. As a response to a picture of the chart uploaded to Twitter, we learned that some details were not accurate. Today I ran into Milan Diebel and Erik Bohnhorst from the NVIDIA GRID product team and together we corrected the chart. Well, and now I want to share the updated version with you.

Graphics Virtualization at NVIDIA GTC 2016

Posted by Benny Tritsch on Apr 20, 2016 2:28:42 PM

Last week, I’ve attended NVIDIA’s GPU Technology Conference (GTC) in San Jose in Silicon Valley. This year’s focus of GTC was virtual reality, artificial intelligence and autonomous cars. NVIDIA’s CEO Jen-Hsun Huang made a number of spectacular announcements around these topics and showed impressive demos, including Steve Wozniak in a real-time VR simulation of a mission to Mars. Despite the fact that graphics virtualization was not mentioned in the keynote, it was a topic considered as special emphasis area and was covered in more than 40 sessions and talks within a separate track. There was a great line-up of speakers from various vendors, partners and customers. But there were also independent experts and industry analysts who shared their thoughts about GPU-accelerated remoting in general and GRID v2 in particular.

My Synergy and E2EVC Highlights

Posted by Benny Tritsch on Jun 2, 2014 2:35:00 PM

Over the last couple of days, I attended Citrix Synergy in Anaheim and E2EVC in Los Angeles. Six days packed with great information about cloud and remoting technology – and hanging out with the virtualization community folks. Here’s what I think were the most interesting things I learned.

The Synergy keynote was delivered by Mark Templeton and he opened his session with the announcement that Intel will be adding GPU cores to their CPUs, allowing for rich application services. Wow, what a start! Only four weeks after Ruben, Shawn and I published our whitepaper on GPU-accelerated graphics remoting, this technology gets so much love.
