NVIDIA Corp. unveils the cloud-based VGX K2 GPU, which will enable designers to work from anywhere in the world on any device and still have access to the computing and graphics performance of a GPU-powered workstation.

The GPU is built on the NVIDIA Kepler architecture to add workstation capabilities to the NVIDIA VGX platform announced earlier this year. The NVIDIA VGX platform uses the GPU to allow enterprises to efficiently deliver virtualized workstation performance and capabilities—including rich multimedia and 3D graphics—to users on smartphones, tablets or PCs. Its VGX K2 board, which includes two workstation-class GPUs, enables enterprises to increase user density without sacrificing performance or application compatibility.

Other benefits of NVIDIA VGX K2 include faster interactivity, with 4GB of graphics memory per GPU to ensure that graphics-intensive design and content-creation applications run with ease. It offers low-latency remote display with patent-pending remote display technology that minimises the lag traditionally associated with virtual desktop computing. It also features power efficiency for datacentres using an SMX streaming multi-processor.

The NVIDIA VGX K2 platform for virtual workstations is expected to be available from leading server OEMs starting in early 2013.
