VMware Horizon 6 and Hardware Accelerated 3D Graphics - Performance and Best Practices

Version 1

    This whitepaper discusses the support for hardware accelerated 3D graphics that is available with vSphere 5.5 and Horizon 6 and presents performance and consolidation results for a number of different workloads, ranging from simple 3D desktop usage to performance-intensive CAD-based workloads. Further, given that the intensity of a 3D workload will vary greatly from user to user and application to application, rather than highlighting specific case studies, this paper demonstrates how the solution efficiently scales for both light- and heavy-weight 3D workloads. This paper also presents key best practices to extract peak performance from a 3D VMware Horizon 6.0 deployment.
