AMD demonstrated hardware-based GPU virtualization solution with OpenGL support

AMD demonstrated at VMworld 2015 their hardware-based GPU virtualization solution, the AMD Multiuser GPU. This new solution from AMD enables a virtualized workstation-class experience with full ISV certifications and local desktop-like performance. With the AMD Multiuser GPU, IT pros can easily configure these solutions to allow up to 15 users on a single AMD GPU. Created for GPU-accelerated workflows such as GPU compute and OpenCL, the AMD Multiuser GPU is designed to overcome the limitations of software-based virtualization such as reduced end-user performance. Users have access to native AMD display drivers for OpenGL, DirectX and OpenCL acceleration, enabling work without restrictions. Additional AMD Multiuser GPU features include Compute capabilities based on OpenCL supported by industry leading GPU virtualization; Full feature set support including DirectX 12 and OpenGL 4.4 and OpenCL 2.0 acceleration support.
