Citrix HDX 3D Pro includes Software GPU – is this our best hidden product?
Over the past months there has been a lot of excitement around XenDesktop’s unmatchable portfolio of GPU technologies and our high-profile collaboration with NVIDIA on vGPU, sharing GPUs. However for a certain class of lightweight graphical application users, software GPU removing the need to invest in GPU hardware can be sufficient. This is where software implements optimisations for graphical libraries such as DirectX and OpenGL.
Recently I’ve been asked if we have plans for software GPU, which was a bit surprising in that we have had this feature available a rather long time!
We already have a built-in DirectX 9 software rasterizer in XD7.x in the standard VDA and we also ship an OpenGL Accelerator available for VDI-in-a-box, XenDesktop and XenApp detailed here:http://support.citrix.com/proddocs/topic/xendesktop-71/hd-opengl-accelerator.html
