VMware Horizon 6 and Hardware Accelerated 3D Graphics

A recently published paper presents best practices and performance data for Horizon 6’s support for hardware accelerated 3D. Awhile back, we published a paper about the same subject with VMware Horizon View 5.2. The new paper updates all the graph data for Horizon 6 and shows the improvements in performance. The View Planner 3.5 benchmark is used to simulate four workloads:

  • A light 3D workload, which simulates an office worker using such applications as Office, Acrobat, and Internet Explorer.
  • A light CAD workload, which adds the SOLIDWORKS CAD viewer to the light 3D workload. In this test, the CAD viewer is used to run two models: a sea scooter and a cross-section of a shaft.
  • The sea scooter and shaft models are run in the SOLIDWORKS CAD viewer without any other applications running on the test system.
  • A Solid Edge CAD viewer is run on its own using a different model of a 3-to-1 reducer.

    I‘m really enjoying the theme/design of your web site. Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility problems?
    A few of my blog audience have complained about my site not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Chrome. Do you have any recommendations to help fix this issue?
