We’ve shared with you how you can improve virtualization performance with Teradici PCoIP Hardware Accelerator, the only product of its kind. Hardware Accelerator can dramatically reduce the load on VDI servers by not only reducing CPU overhead but also efficiently encoding the pixels generated by the GPU to deliver higher frames per second to the endpoint. Hardware Accelerator is the only solution available in the market that ensures efficient delivery of those pixels to the endpoint.

In order to show this to you firsthand, we created a video highlighting the performance benefits of the Teradici PCoIP Hardware Accelerator. This video will show you how the Hardware Accelerator smooths CPU usage peaks for the best and most consistent user experience at all times.


The video demonstrates everyday applications and video running in a VMware Horizon VM, both with Hardware Accelerator enabled and with it disabled. We not only show you the performance difference, we measure it, looking at the processor load for the PCoIP server, the frame rate, and vCPU usage.

We’ve talked numbers before, but here it is again, in a nutshell. PCoIP Hardware Accelerator is able to dynamically offload up to 100 of the most active displays, reducing server CPU utilization by up to 50 percent for graphically intensive workloads and allowing up to twice the density per server. In addition, the Hardware Accelerator is able to increase frame rates by up to 63 percent – all with significant savings to the bottom line. 

If you want to know how the PCoIP Hardware Accelerator is able to improve so many performance and optimization metrics, this video will walk you through the process of how the intelligent offloading of encoding tasks works.
