Hardware Accelerator Works with the GPU
Hardware Accelerator
• Consistent user
experience
• Improves
consolidation ratio
GPU
• Better application
compatibility
and local user
experience
Hardware Accelerator + GPU
• Unlocks the full potential of the GPU
experience
• Frees CPU resources for applications and
other users
Complementary, not mutually exclusive

Benefits
• When vCPU is overloaded and cannot deliver
the best user experience
Deliver best user experience
• When GPU is generating too many pixels
for the soft encoder to handle
Protect and ensure a
consistent user experience
• Important as workloads become more
unpredictable with VDI becoming mainstream
Increase consolidation ratio
• Up to 2x with heavy graphics workload
