GPUs for VDI?

This post was originally published on this site

Hello, we are in the process of refreshing the hardware that supports our virtual desktop infrastructure.  Our current ESXi servers are compute bound and the physical CPUs are quite oversubscribed.

The vCPU to pCPU ratio is very high and we receive reports of poor performance.

 

My question: We are considering adding GPUs to the new servers.  What use cases does it make sense to add GPUs?  Would it help in situations where CPUs are oversubscribed but the applications in use are not graphics intensive?  The virtual desktops are running Windows 10.  Above all, I wanted to solve for the performance issues but unsure if GPUs would help address that.

 

Thanks.
