Why GPUs Matter for Remoting Environments

By |March 28th, 2019|Tags: |

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 [...]
