The visual computing technology company is getting into the action at Citrix Synergy in Anaheim this week with the announcement that its Grid vGPU appliance now supports integration for Citrix's XenDesktop 7 application delivery platform.

Nvidia reps boasted this brings the performance, stabilitity and compatibility of hardware-accelerated graphics to virtual desktop environments.

With such high-definition graphics and capabilities on tap, some of the more obvious uses cases and verticals make this combination suitable for digital content creation, engineering, architecture, and other visual intellectual property applications.

Nvidia also suggested connecting with manufacturing clients and supply chain partners as well as healthcare archiving.

While an exact date hasn't been revealed, Nvidia promised general availability will happen later this year.
