Visual content is increasing in our digital world. Entertainment and social networking are driving this growth, yet data center graphics are also playing an increasing role in business, changing the way products are designed and sold, data is analyzed, and information is shared. Engineering work once done only on a deskside workstation is now being moved to the data center with complex 3D applicat...ions being delivered remotely to end devices. This enables better collaboration and offers increased security as data is stored in secure data centers.
This transition is impacting both the volume and characteristics of data center workloads. There is a growing need to deliver high-quality video and complex 3D applications faster and at lower total cost.
