AMD today rolls out the new Radeon Pro Settings for VMware, enabling system admins to 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. 

Now more than ever with Radeon Pro Virtualized Graphics, system admins will benefit from:

  • Outstanding Performance: AMD’s MxGPU (Multiuser GPU) virtualized graphics, the world’s first hardware virtualized GPU solution, supports VMware vSphere 6.0 and higher. Delivering superior performance over the competition, MxGPU provides up to 35% faster performance in SOLIDWORKS, up to 38% faster performance in PTC Creo, and up to 156% faster performance in Siemens NX. 
  • Easy Set Up: The new Radeon Pro Settings for VMware is also seamlessly integrated into VMware vCenter, which allows for management of physical GPUs at the host and datacenter level with a simple and intuitive interface
  • One Unified Enterprise Driver: AMD is the only company to offer a single Unified Radeon Pro Software Enterprise Driver 17.Q1.1, letting users effortlessly run certified professional applications on both physical and virtual machines.
  • Improved Security: AMD’s hardware-based virtualization solution makes it even more difficult for a hacker to break in at the hardware level, as shared GPU capability is built right into the silicon, helping make it more secure than software virtualization.

This integration continues AMD’s momentum in cloud graphics, following our March 23rd announcement that AMD and Citrix have collaborated to unlock MxGPU support for Citrix HDX 3D Pro. With Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop 7.13, AMD MxGPU is fully integrated and available. Users can download Radeon Pro Software drivers with HDX support here.

Enterprises can deploy AMD MxGPU virtualized graphics on a number of server platforms from Dell, HP Enterprise, and Supermicro. You can learn more by watching our video here, reading our blog, or visiting
