NVIDIA has announced its new VGX K2 Graphics processor, the industry’s first cloud-based graphics processor. It is based on NVIDIA Kepler architecture, the world’s fastest, most efficient GPU architecture.
The NVIDIA VGX platform utilizes the GPU to allow enterprises to efficiently deliver virtualized workstation performance and capabilities — including rich multimedia and 3D graphics — to users on smartphones, tablets or PCs.
“The VGX platform has been developed to bring rich, interactive graphics to all enterprise virtual desktop users,” said Jeff Brown, general manager of the Professional Solutions Group at NVIDIA. “With VGX K2 in the data center, designers and engineers who create the core intellectual property for their companies can now access their IP from any device and still enjoy workstation-class performance.”
Some of the key benefits includes 4GB of graphics memory per GPU for faster interactivity, Low-latency remote display: Patent-pending remote display technology minimizes the lag traditionally associated with virtual desktop computing. The NVIDIA VGX K2 platform for virtual workstations is expected to be available from leading server OEMs starting in early 2013.
