by Victoria Rege

With our partners VMware and Google, we revealed this week a breakthrough in bringing full graphics to the virtual desktop, at VMworld 2014. Now, we’re ready to get it into the hands of customers.

Businesses that want to be the first to experience this game-changer for virtual desktop infrastructure can apply for early access.

Graphics to go: Acer Chromebook 13 shows off full graphics performance on virtual desktop, using NVIDIA GRID and VMware vSphere, at VMworld 2014.

VMworld attendees have already gotten a look at technology previews we – along with VMware, Dell and HP – showed off the VMware vSphere Hypervisor running NVIDIA GRID vGPU.

The adoption of GRID virtual GPU technology in VMware’s industry-leading hypervisor lets customers enjoy full, no-compromise graphics for the first time in their virtual desktop environments.

That means full application compatibility for the broadest spectrum of VDI users – from the standard office worker running productivity applications, to the 3D design engineer manipulating high-end 3D models.

And that’s with all the performance, stability and compatibility of NVIDIA hardware-accelerated graphics.

It has to be seen to be believed, so check it out in the video below featuring Sumit Dhawan, vice president and general manager of Desktop Products, End-User Computing at VMware.

And for a chance to experience VMware vSphere with NVIDIA GRID vGPU yourself, view the requirements and apply for early access today.
