Video & Research: Beat the heat with Hardware Virtualisation GPU Technology by AMD :
Market share for "Very High performance per watt hardware" (Percentile*Gzh/watt)*h = potential

High statistic servers come online, Specific needs of the environment

Consoles can stream a whole home!(c)RS

The technology behind the AMD GPUs for virtualization is called MxGPU (Multi-user GPU) enabling the industry’s first hardware-based virtualized GPU,
AMD’s MxGPU is designed around an embedded virtualization engine, based on a PCI Express® standard called SR-IOV,
This engine allows the sharing of GPU resources across multiple users and enables the predictable performance IT managers require and end users appreciate.

MxGPU is a simple approach to the tough GPU virtualization problem. Since virtualization functionality is built directly into silicon,
A small host driver is needed for the hypervisor. Cloud service providers embrace this approach as one that can make GPU virtualization simpler and accessible to more users.
