Video & Research: Beat the heat with Hardware Virtualisation GPU Technology by AMD : Market share for "Very High performance per watt hardware" (Percentile*Gzh/watt)*h = potential

High statistic servers come online, Specific needs of the environment

The technology behind the AMD GPUs for virtualisation is called MxGPU (Multi-user GPU) enabling the industry’s first hardware-based virtualisation GPU, AMD’s MxGPU is designed around an embedded virtualisation engine, based on a PCI Express® standard called SR-IOV, This engine allows the sharing of GPU resources across multiple users and enables the predictable performance IT managers require and end users appreciate.

MxGPU is a simple approach to the tough GPU virtualisation problem. Since virtualisation functionality is built directly into silicon, A small host driver is needed for the hypervisor. Cloud service providers embrace this approach as one that can make GPU virtualisation simpler and accessible to more users.
