NVIDIA rendering issues? Look at the stats!

Advertise here with BSA I’ve been down in the lab for the last week doing performance testing with virtual reality workloads and streaming these over wifi to an Oculus Quest headset. In order to render the graphics remotely, we leveraged NVIDIA GPU technology (RTX 8000 in my case here in the lab). We have been getting very impressive results, […]

vGPUs and vMotion, why the long stun times?

Advertise here with BSA Last week one of our engineers shared something which I found very interesting. I have been playing with Virtual Reality technology and NVIDIA vGPUs for 2 months now. One thing I noticed is that we (VMware) introduced support for vMotion in vSphere 6.7 and support for vMotion of multi vGPU VMs in vSphere 6.7 U3. […]
