NVIDIA’s Exclusive 3D Video with Doggfather of Hip-Hop

Posted: 13 Jun 2012 11:13 AM PDT


At the just-wrapped E3 Expo, game developer Namco thrilled hip-hop loving fans of its Tekken series by announcing that the "Doggfather" of hip-hip has recorded the title track for its upcoming Tekken Tag Tournament 2 title. Better still for Snoop Dogg's fans, a special Snoop-themed fighting stage will be featured in the game.

And that's not all…

NVIDIA has partnered with Namco to produce an exclusive 3D version of the music video of the game's title track, "Knock 'Em Down." In case you missed its national broadcast debut in 2D on the Black Entertainment Television cable network earlier this week, 3D Vision users can enjoy the world-exclusive 3D version of the video below or at (Note: you need to have 3D Vision hardware in order to view this 3D video)

In the Knock 'Em Down music video, Snoop hosts a Tekken Tag Tournament 2 house party. Two party-going gamers end up butting heads and eventually face off in a Tekken-style Kung Fu battle as onlookers — including model/actress Adrianne Curry – play the game to keep their clothes on.

Is this just another typical night at Casa de Snoop Dogg?

Fo shizzle!

For Best Virtual Desktop: NVIDIA VGX & Windows RemoteFX

Posted: 13 Jun 2012 05:01 AM PDT


How do you deliver a great virtual desktop experience and continue to support the same number of users?

You use the new Windows Server 2012 RemoteFX feature with NVIDIA VGX hardware.

Our VGX graphics cards are designed to serve up GPU-accelerated virtual desktops with better graphics performance than you'd see in current non-GPU accelerated installations.

Here's how it works: RemoteFX shares the NVIDIA GPU across multiple virtual machines to accelerate DirectX 9 and DirectX 11 (now available with Server 2012) applications. This means RemoteFX- and VGX-powered virtual desktops support the Windows Aero interface, plus Microsoft Office applications and graphics-hungry applications.

In the end, RemoteFX and VGX allow you to deliver a better performance and user experience to your existing user base.

On the flip side, you can use the extra VGX horsepower to deliver the same level of virtual desktop performance to a greater number of users.

The VGX GPU handles all graphics processing duties, allowing the system to free up work from the CPU. In turn, the CPU can potentially support more users – translating into lower cost per user.

The first NVIDIA VGX graphics card – announced last month at NVIDIA's GPU Technology Conference – supports up to 100 RemoteFX users simultaneously. It uses its 16GB of on-board dedicated graphics memory to run those 100 displays at up to 1280×1024 resolution. With fewer users, it can also support higher resolutions and even multi-display configurations.

Check out our CEO Jen-Hsun Huang's GTC Keynote below to see Industrial Light & Magic's Grady Cofer using 100 virtual desktops to show videos of his past works.

We're showing off a scaled-down version of the above demo this week at Microsoft's TechEd in Orlando. We will be showing the VGX card in action at the RemoteFX Pavilion in the TechExpo.

If you're at the show, stop by and visit the NVIDIA booth in the Microsoft Cloud Partner Pavillion to see VGX delivers in action.

Server 2012 drivers are available today on for use with our current Quadro cards and RemoteFX. The new NVIDIA VGX hardware will be coming from major server vendors beginning later this year.
