A common question asked by our customers is if graphics processing units (GPUs) really improve remote end-user experience in virtual desktop environments. The answer is yes, they do in many use cases and for both on-premises and cloud setups. One reason is that the Central Processing Unit (CPU) load on a remoting host can be reduced significantly by offloading graphics calculations used in many modern Windows applications to a GPU. Another reason is that GPUs can do video encoding and decoding much more efficient than any CPU. Simply said, offloading graphics calculations and video codecs to a GPU improves remote [...]

RDP10 versus PCoIP on Hyper-V with DDA

By |September 3rd, 2017|

In August, Gabe Knuth published an article on BrianMadden.com describing Teradici’s new product announcements. An important aspect of Teradici’s product offering is their PC-over-IP protocol (PCoIP), an alternative to other remoting protocols. But how good is PCoIP and what are the ideal use cases? To answer this question, we compared the performance of Microsoft Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) and PCoIP in June and July 2017. This project was sponsored by Microsoft with input from Teradici. Our primary focus was on benchmarking the performance of graphics workloads in Hyper-V virtual machines accelerated by NVIDIA M60 GPUs attached through Discrete Device Assignment [...]
