AMD have released an important new driver for their AMD Radeon Pro GPUs in November 2018 (18.Q4)
Today, AMD is releasing Radeon™ Pro Software for Enterprise Edition 18.Q4, introducing a new Day Zero Certification Program, updating the Remote Workstation feature, expanding the unified “One Driver” with support for AMD Radeon™ Graphics, boosting productivity with faster performance in some key professional applications, and updating AMD Radeon™ ProRender.
This release is fixing more issues that AMD identified with Citrix Virtual Apps & Desktops (aka XenDesktop). The drivers works both with a physically machine with Radeon Pro + Citrix Virtual Apps & Desktops (aka XenDesktop) or with a Virtual machine where the AMD Radeon Pro GPU are attached as GPU passthrough or sliced via SR-IOV with S7150/S7150x2 with Citrix Virtual Apps & Desktops (aka XenDesktop). I haven’t tested with VMware Horizon yet.
AMD have expanded support for their Remote Workstation feature to include the AMD Radeon™ Pro WX 4100, WX 5100, and newly released WX 8200 graphics cards alongside the originally supported WX 7100 and WX 9100 graphics cards, giving users access to a full GPU-accelerated workstation experience from virtually anywhere with Citrix.
Radeon™ Pro Software for Enterprise’s unified “One Driver” simplifies deployment, and we are now including AMD Radeon™ graphics support in the downloadable Radeon™ Pro Software for Enterprise 18.Q4 unified driver package, bringing many benefits of Radeon™ Pro Software – including stability and better security – to knowledge workers.
The Radeon™ Pro Software for Enterprise is designed to deliver market-leading uptime and stability. Rigorous multi-wave testing and exhaustive ISV certifications help make this “the industry’s most stable driver”1. Radeon™ Pro Software is certified in over 100 workstation applications including Autodesk® AutoCAD®, Dassault Systèmes® CATIA®, Siemens NX™, Adobe® Premiere® Pro, Avid® Media Composer®, Autodesk® Maya®, PTC Creo® and many more
