AMD GPU’s (NVv4-Series) VMs are now Generally Available in Azure

Hi all, I am excited to share that Microsoft have made NVv4 VM now general available in US South Central and Europe West regions.

I have been testing the NVv4 in Azure US South Central and West Europe for some months and performance is simply amazing. I am very excited Azure finally have GPU-P in production now and customers can benefits of having SR-IOV lowering the bar of enabling your virtual machine instance in Azure with GPU capability.

Customers who are doing EUC such as Microsoft WVD/RDS, Citrix CVAD, VMware Horizon, Nutanix XIframe, Parallels RAS, Teradici can now benefit of these new GPU instances in Azure. I highly recommend doing a POC to see benefit of these instance.

I will in this blogpost cover what is the new NVv4 instance and how to choose an instance and install and what the price is.

Enjoy /Thomas Poppelgaard
