Citrix HDX 3D Pro is a group of remote display and graphics acceleration technologies designed to optimize the user experience of resource-intensive virtual applications on the XenDesktop and XenApp platforms. Continue Reading
GPU virtualization offloads graphics rendering from a user's device to the data center. Using a virtual GPU makes VDI possible for graphics-intensive apps. Continue Reading
Dyslexie is a font designed for greater readability to help people who have difficulty reading. The Dyslexie font features characters that are more distinct from each other, so that letters with similar shapes such as “b” and “d” are less likely to be confused. Continue Reading
Evaluate Graphics design Vendors & Products
Weigh the pros and cons of technologies, products and projects you are considering.
Graphics processing units and virtual GPUs (vGPUs) are valuable for workers who use graphics-heavy applications, but they can also provide significant performance improvements for other users, too. Workers who use computer-aided design applications and similar tools obviously benefit from the improved performance, but faster apps that work well make all users happy. There's also protocol offloading to consider, but you don't have to pick just one of these approaches. There's room for all of them, and in fact, they all suit different needs.
One of the most important things about graphics processing units (GPUs) -- after realizing your users might need them -- is determining the right type. You can set up the CPU to emulate GPU, you can go with shared GPUs or virtual GPUs (vGPUs), or you can use GPU pass through. Every one of those options has benefits and drawbacks, however. The hardware isn't cheap, but splitting it up to share it among users decreases its effectiveness. Weighing your options is critical.Continue Reading
VDI has always faced an uphill slog. Implementation is time-consuming and expensive. The technology only fits certain use cases, and with so many moving parts and people to please, a lot of ... Continue Reading
With VDI, image rendering can suffer, but the world of graphics acceleration technology has changed. Options such as shared GPUs and GPU pass-through make it easier to deliver quality graphics to virtual desktops. Continue Reading
