Hi All

Its time to update your NVIDIA TESLA M6, M10, M60, P4, P6, P40, P100, V100 with GRID 6.2

NVIDIA have released new drivers for NVIDIA GRID 6.2 for July 2018.

This release is great as NVIDIA released a 4GB framebuffer for vPC licenses, so customers before couldn only run a framebuffer up to 2GB (in GRID 6.1) before GRID 6.0 max FB was 1GB. This is now this is increased to 4GB with the new -2B4 vGPU type that is available for all licenses. Another great thing for cutomers is support for latest Windows 10 1803 and support for VMware Horizon 7.5  and Citrix XenDesktop/XenApp 7.18 + Citrix XenServer 7.5

Important:

  • If you are a customer using XenServer 7.2 or XenServer 7.3 its no longer supported with NVIDIA GRID 6.2 and should plan upgrading to XenServer 7.4 or 7.5.
  • Customers using Citrix XenServer 7.0 or 7.1 is supported with NVIDIA GRID 6.0
  • NVIDIA GRID 6.2 is only supported with Citrix XenDesktop 7.15, 7.17, 7.18 in HDX 3D Pro mode

This release includes the following software:

  • NVIDIA GRID Virtual GPU Manager version 390.72 for the Citrix XenServer, VMware vSphere, Huawei UVP
  • NVIDIA Windows driver version 391.81
  • NVIDIA Linux driver version 390.75

Citrix have released a new version of Citrix XenDesktop 7.17 and XenApp 7.17 and is now available for download.

I am pretty excited about this release because HDX 3D pro have also been improved with h265 it’s handled selectively for appropriate regions of a session for the best possible combination of quality and performance with Selective H.265 Encoding with NVIDIA Hardware. Another great news is that XenServer 7.4 finally supports vGPU Xenmotion with NVIDIA Pascal GPU’s and also now supports AMD MxGPU.

Customers that are using Linux can now use Citrix Linux VDA 3D Pro with NVIDIA pascal GPUs such as P4, P40, P6, P100. The Citrix Linux VDA 3D Pro works now with NVIDIA vGPU for NVIDIA pascal GPUs and also supports vGPU hardware encoding, which means more hardware encoding is done on GPU with HDX and not on CPU, this new feature will resolve more CPU ressource available, which application can benefit from and also means better user experience.

Citrix raises the bar of for user experience and new product release of following technologies:

  • Virtual Delivery Agents 7.17 for ServerOS and ClientOS
  • Virtual Delivery Agent 7.17 for Linux
  • Self-Service Password Reset 1.1.10
  • Director 7.17
  • Profile Management 7.17
