Nvidia_Grid_VCANvidia has unveiled a visual computing appliance that delivers fast GPU performance to any Windows, Linux or Mac client on their network.

The Nvidia Grid Visual Computing Appliance (VCA) is a GPU-based system that runs complex applications such as those from Adobe, Autodesk and Dassault Systèmes, and sends their graphics output over the network to be displayed on a client computer. This remote GPU acceleration gives users the same rich graphics experience they would get from a dedicated PC at their disposal, says Nvidia. 

Nvidia Grid VCA’s 16 Nvidia GPUs and Nvidia Grid VGX software provide Nvidia Quadro-class graphics performance for up to 16 concurrent users.

The Nvidia Grid VCA comes in 8 GPU or 16 GPU configurations, with pricing starting at $24,900, plus an annual software license of $2,400. It will be available in the United States starting May.
