A GPU (Graphical Process Unit), has a massively parallel architecture compared to a conventional CPU. This design originally intended to handle computation only for computer graphics (OpenGL/Direct3D), was adapted with programming languages such as CUDA or OpenCL, to perform computation in applications traditionally handled by CPU.
Due to its ability to speed up processing, GPU architecture is particularly suited to resource-intensive applications which require a large number of parallel tasks (image processing, bioinformatics, big data ... ).
These two latest-generation Nvidia graphics cards are based on "Pascal" architecture. They can be used for 3D graphics acceleration or as a co-processor to perform calculations with simple precision, thanks to their CUDA cores. The 4 GPU configurations are specifically designed for use in "Cloud gaming" by hosting virtual machines linked to a dedicated "passthrough" graphics card.
Compatible with: Linux, CUDA/OpenCL, KVM.
The card's 1664 CUDA cores process parallel workloads for accelerated video encoding.
Harness the GPU's computing power to generate your animations/images.
Leverage the computing power to develop and test your CUDA/OpenCL applications.
The M60 is part of the NVIDIA server range for professionals. It was specifically designed for virtualization and uses NVIDIA GRID technology to allow up to 32 concurrent users to share the graphics card resources!
The Nvidia M60 card enables the deployment of virtualized infrastructures, boasting graphics acceleration to meet the needs of advanced users (graphic designers/engineers). It provides the flexibility of virtualized desktops (VDI), while still offering the graphics power required to run 3D applications (DirectX/OpenGL).
Compatible: VMWare ESXi, Citrix Xenserver, KVM.
Combine Nvidia technology with market leading hypervisors to build high-performance VDI infrastructures.
Provide your users (Architects, Designers) with remote workstations for their 3D applications.
Outsource GPU to the Cloud in order to host demanding applications such as online games.
