Office Productivity Apps and Their Users Are More Demanding
Even simple productivity applications found in Microsoft Windows 10, Office 2016, browsers, and streaming video can benefit from graphics acceleration.

Today, over sixty percent of enterprise users work with at least one of these applications.

Traditional desktop and laptop PCs boost application performance with embedded or integrated GPUs. However, when making the transition from physical to virtual, IT has traditionally left the GPU burden to be handled by a server CPU. This has caused a performance bottleneck that limits scale and compromises the user experience.
Now, IT departments can take advantage of GPU technology to deliver a virtual desktop experience that’s as good as a physical device.
