Radeon Pro Settings joins forces with VMware vCenter

If there's one thing that system administrators like, it's convenience. AMD is serving that up for folks running VMware's vCenter with the new Radeon Pro Settings plugin.

Using the Pro Settings app, admins can set up virtual desktops, assign virtual GPU instances to existing virtual desktops, and configure MxGPU partitioning directly from a vSphere control panel.

Obviously, the Radeon Pro Settings app requires the server in question to be equipped with one of AMD's virtualization-oriented FirePro cards. It also requires the latest version of the driver for said cards, which is also the latest driver for any other Radeon Pro card now that AMD has unified its "Radeon Pro Software Enterprise Driver" package. If you're interested, check out AMD's blog post for a how-to video on the new plugin.

    Yeah… weird.

    I just had a call this morning with a customer that was complaining about this exact topic, so I will have to send him the link. He also mentioned that the AWS and Azure equivalents also sucked.

    For a moment I thought the news were about this Radeon Pro software: [url<]http://www.radeonpro.info[/url<] I'll buy another AMD videocard when Radeon Pro 2 comes out. Or Nvidia Inspector allows creating profiles for AMD products; whichever comes first. Spoiler: There's the same probability for both cases.

      Technically it should still work.

      I agree though. AMD should’ve payed jap to continue developing RadeonPro instead, or at least stolen the adaptive VSync/triple buffering code.
