NVIDIA reports they've released a new WHQL driver that gives Quadro GPUs support for running on back-end servers with Microsoft's RemoteFX technology, for driving graphics on thin clients. You can download the update over here, RemoteFX is part of the Windows Server 2008 R2 service pack, which is also available for download today.
Last summer we told you about Microsoft’s beta Windows Server 2008 R2 service pack which included support for Microsoft RemoteFX; today we’re announcing that Microsoft is releasing the public version of Windows Server 2008 R2 service pack, and it’s available for download.
Also today, we’re releasing a new NVIDIA WHQL driver to support Quadro GPUs running on back-end servers with RemoteFX, for driving graphics on thin clients. We’ve been working with Microsoft since their beta to enable the best virtual desktop experience with NVIDIA GPUs.
You can now run NVIDIA Quadro 4000, 5000 and 6000 professional graphics cards, as well as the M2070Q server graphics module on RemoteFX to bring improved graphics performance to multiple users in a virtualized environment. You’ll see improvements in activities from watching a video and creating or viewing 3D flash animations to video conferencing.
Leading server OEMs, including Dell, HP, and IBM are all supporting Microsoft RemoteFX capable platforms with NVIDIA Quadro technology. Together, we’re offering companies enterprise-class software and hardware reliability combined with NVIDIA GPU performance. This combination provides employees a much better user experience that can help increase their productivity.
