The World's First Hardware-Based GPU Virtualization Solution

AMD MxGPU is the world’s first hardware-based virtualized GPU solution, is built on industry standard SR-IOV (Single-Root I/O Virtualization) technology and allows up to 16 virtualized users per physical GPU to work remotely.

Unlike software virtualization offerings, AMD’s scalable VDI (Virtual Desktop Infrastructure) technology can better protect valuable data by using a dedicated share of local memory for increased security.

Benefits of AMD MxGPU Technology

Predictable Performance

An AMD graphics card equipped with our MxGPU technology offers consistent, predictable performance. IT managers can easily configure these solutions to allow for up to 16 users on a single GPU. When the card is appropriately configured to meet the needs of the organization, users can expect the same access to the GPU no matter their workload. There is no worry about any one user tying up the entire GPU while other users experience slow and unresponsive systems. Each user can now have an equal share of the GPU to allow them to design, create, and execute their workflows.

Data Security

Users will have peace of mind knowing that their valuable work and data is being protected from other prying eyes. Unlike software virtualization, AMD’s hardware-based virtualization solution makes it extremely difficult for a hacker to break in at the hardware level; with software virtualization, any breaches or holes in the underlying driver can be exploited to access a guest virtual machine in an unauthorized fashion. For organizations that highly value security, AMD’s MxGPU solutions offer a clear option for their virtualized workstation needs.

Full Certifications

There are virtually no limits what can or can’t be done in VDI, with full OpenGL®, DirectX®, and OpenCL™ acceleration and full ISV certification for Dassault Systèmes SOLIDWORKS®, PTC Creo®, Siemens® NX™, and more.

Radeon™ Pro Software and VDI Ecosystem

One Driver For All

AMD Multiuser GPU (MxGPU) virtualized graphics delivers workstation-class graphics with local desktop-like performance from the data center to virtually any device, virtually anywhere.

In bringing the power comparable to a physical GPU to virtual environments, AMD MxGPU virtualized graphics uses the unified Radeon™ Pro Software Enterprise driver which lets users effortlessly run professional applications on both physical and virtual machines.

VMware Support

With support for VMware vSphere® 6.0 and higher, system admins will love how easy AMD MxGPU virtualized graphics is to set up. The new Radeon™ Pro Settings for VMware seamlessly integrated into VMware vCenter® allows for management of physical GPUs at the host and datacenter level with a simple and intuitive interface.

Admins can quickly set up a VDI environment, rapidly deploy virtual GPUs to existing virtual machines, and enable hundreds of professionals with just a few mouse clicks depending on the number of GPUs in the system configuration.

Citrix Support

AMD MxGPU graphics support Citrix HDX 3D Pro technology, enabling IT departments to create virtual workstations with greater economies of scale, robust security features, and higher performance of graphics apps in mind. Multi-user GPU (MxGPU) technology is now fully integrated with the Citrix’s HDX 3D Pro protocol. HDX 3D Pro enables users to deliver desktops and applications that leverage the GPU for hardware acceleration, including applications that require OpenGL®, OpenCL™, and DirectX® support.

Radeon™ Pro graphics delivered from the cloud.

Radeon™ Pro MxGPU (multiuser GPU) technology gives cloud services providers the ability to offer virtualized GPUs in their cloud environments. The AMD virtualized, or shared, GPUs deliver security and low cost cloud-based instances that allow our cloud partners to flexibly scale their GPU-based environments.
