The virtualization has become a powerful partner for many companies that have achieved breakthrough performance of their servers, but desktop virtualization has not been as successful, due in part to limitations in graphics performance issues.

Run demanding 3D applications and even games to virtual machines so far has been something serious problems facing users of virtualization on the desktop, but NVIDIA want to solve the problem with NVIDIA VGX virtualization platform, which was unveiled at the GPU Technology Conference last March.

This NVIDIA VGX technology will allow virtual machines to use a graphics card installed on a server to accelerate applications, games, and video. In calling VGX Hypervisor, virtualization applications compatible (NVIDIA are working closely with Citrix) may use the GPU directly, which allow thin clients tablets and other devices to replicate the experience would offer real hardware in a no virtualized operating system.

NVIDIA has introduced two different dedicated graphics cards, the NVIDIA VGX K1 and K2, which offer different benefits-K2 model is something like two in one-K5000 Quadro and offering enough power to, through VGX platform, eliminating the limitations of the graphics acceleration in virtualized environments.
