XenDesktop 5.6 with NVIDIA GRID
NVIDIA GRID™-accelerated XenDesktop is the ideal solution for 3D graphics-intensive applications like remote workstations. With GRID, everyone can now get the full experience of a local PC while running on a virtual desktop served from the data centre.
A wide range of graphics applications—from PowerPoint and videos to intensive 3D CAD and interactive rendering of medical imagery—are now fully interactive with HDX 3D Pro and NVIDIA GRID. By leveraging GRID technology with full 3D and compute API support through the latest NVIDIA Quadro® drivers. users can take advantage of the thousands of applications that run OpenGL 4.3, Microsoft DirectX9, 10, 11, or NVIDIA CUDA® 5.0 .
HDX 3D Pro takes advantage of advanced server-side GPU rendering to give knowledge workers, power users, and designers the ability to perform at their best without interruption, from anywhere.
