VGWare technology solves two of the major challenges of remote rendering:
Lucid's VGware software enables increased concurrent 3D professional applications and 3D games per GPU in a multi GPU Virtual Machines (VMs) / Cloud environment. VGware allows engineers or gamers running high performance demanding 3D graphics applications on their laptop or handheld device; it can also allow engineers or other users to accomplish their professional task in the server farm or at office.
The result is:
Support server-client model
Reduces direct hardware cost
Lowers the total cost of ownership (TCO)
Lessens power consumption
Works with multi-vendor GPUs (ATI/Nvidia)
Support NVIDIA®, CUDA®, Open GL & Open CL
VGWare enables better server utilization. With Lucid's VGware technology customers enjoy the ability leverage multiple GPUs in a single server. The GPUs can be operated in parallel while they load balance the graphics tasks for multiple clients.
Multi Concurrent Games/Apps on Single GPU
Multi Concurrent Games/Apps on Multi GPUs
Low latency fetching and transmitting frame buffers
Optimal Rendering & Responsiveness
Automatic load balancing
All DX9/10/11 OpenGL applications are supported
All Nvidia and AMD discrete GPUs
Server side, how it works:
VGWare enables 3D, Direct X or Open GL games or 3D professional applications running on your laptop, desktop, tablet or smartphone without the need of discrete GPU or even a compatible operating system.
