sysGen offers validated Supermicro and Gigabyte VDI (Virtual Desktop Infrastructure) server solutions with NVIDIA high-performance GPUs and Virtual GPU software. Client virtualization is provided by VMware horizon virtual desktop or CITRIX. Customers can choose between AMD EPYC™ 7002 and Intel Intel® Xeon® Scalable processor models. Both manufacturers offer a range of strengths. Intel has focused on higher clock speeds and efficiency, while AMD has focused on high core counts and energy efficiency. If you follow most test results, AMD will keep the leading role in the next years, also because they are the first company to offer PCIe 4.0 technology, and serve the new NVIDIA A100 GPU at full clock speed. We currently support NVIDIA Tesla® GPUs based on Volta™, Turing™, Pascal™, and Maxwell™ architectures, as well as T4 and NVIDIA Quadro® RTX™ GPUs, delivering best-in-class virtual desktop experiences to professional users anytime, anywhere.

VDI has become increasingly popular with the expanded availability of mobile broadband, higher bandwidth, more computing power in modern mobile devices, higher screen resolutions, and a trend toward BYOD in the enterprise. Supermicro VDI solutions enable RDSH, traditional VDI and third-party graphics-intensive use cases by leveraging NVIDIA vGPU software running on NVIDIA Tesla® GPUs such as V100, P40, T4, M10 and Quadro® RTX™ 6000 and 8000. The jointly developed solution provides the most TCO-optimized x86 architecture for scaling VDI deployments across an enterprise by improving IT management, delivering on-demand performance, and increasing productivity in virtual workspaces.
