Can any one let me know how soon is Citrix going to release the next version of 1y0-351 Exam for Netscaler IOS ver.11.

Hey Thomas,

nice article! I was wondering if you have a link to an official statement of Google (Chrome) about this change. I’m having the opposite experience with V45. Each time I start it, Hardware accelaration is used, except for Canvas, Multiple Raster Threads & Rasterization. I’m using it on a non GPU accelerated XenApp 6.5 farm on 2008 R2 OS.

Thanks in advance



CCU for Maxwell (M6/M60) not for Kepler (K1/K2)
+ SUMS = % Sotfware maintenance per year related CCU licenses

Pricing structure will reach new heights………..

I was surprised and confused by what NVIDIA now appears to be stating about needing NVIDIA CCU licenses to use GRID 2.0 M6/M60 instances. Seealso which implies that this licensing is needed above and beyond what licenses are needed from Citrix or VMware to access various features. Can someone perhaps provide better clarification? As far as I can tell, the GRID K1 and K2 units are exempt from this, so it would appear this is something new and specific to the M6/M60 models. If this is really true, the pricing structure could be a major factor in the decision to go with these newer models vs. the K1/K2 options.

Hey David, I typed correctly but wordpress dont shows the two lines.
I have attached a photo now, so you better can see the code.
