When VMworld 2018 is kicking tonight and into the next few days, AMD announced a new vGPU for high performance graphics in the AMD Radeon PRO V340 data center. The new virtual GPU is designed to cope with the most demanding data center visualization loads, including CAD, Design, Desktop as a Service (DaaS) and rendering. AMD will demo vGPU at fair # 2501 on VMworld.
Creative professionals no longer use large workstations to work with; They, like the rest of the workforce, are largely on the move and work remotely. This means they need graphics wherever they are. AMD Radeon PRO V340 is a dual vGPU built by the company's Vega architecture. This architecture will allow vGPU to deliver both high-density and high performance. Based on AMD's MxGPU technology, the company claims that the V340 is the first VDI hardware solution equipped with 32GB ultra-fast memory to provide massive amounts of bandwidth for complex media and design workloads.
- Superior user density: Supports up to 32 1
- Integrated Encode Engine: The ability to compress independent video streams in both H.264 and H.265 formats. Gives design and manufacturer users the video quality they expect, while providing IT managers with the ability to eliminate CPU bottlenecks.
- Ultra-Fast Frame Buffer: Troubleshooting Code (ECM) HBM2 memory and better energy efficiency than competing solutions allow fast paging applications to run incredibly fast.
- Embedded Security Processor: Provides secure boot and encrypted storage features.
AMD Radeon PRO V340 is expected to be available in the fourth quarter of this year from leading OEMs.
