Citrix and NVIDIA Team Up to Provide New GPU Power for VDI

The Virtual World
The VDI platform has, historically, not been the place for graphic intensive applications, now Citrix and NVIDIA seek to change that!

Until recently, the company's general-purpose GPU (GPGPU) development was largely aimed at high-performance computing (HPC) environments. But now Nvidia is going after the much larger enterprise market with its new Grid GPU virtualization technology. The company originally unveiled its Grid VCA appliance at the GPU Technology Conference in March to support its Grid VGX virtual desktop software. At the time, Nvidia said it was working with other hypervisor vendors to allow virtual machines to run directly on the GPU rather…
