Last day of my Take 3 with the @ProjectVXR team!


Advertise here with BSA

Today is the last day of my Take 3 with the Project VXR team. Ridiculous how fast these 3 months went. It seems like only yesterday that I posted I was going to start this journey of learning more about the world of Spatial Computing and Remote Rendering of VR in particular. If I say […] Continue reading

NVIDIA rendering issues? Look at the stats!


Advertise here with BSA

I’ve been down in the lab for the last week doing performance testing with virtual reality workloads and streaming these over wifi to an Oculus Quest headset. In order to render the graphics remotely, we leveraged NVIDIA GPU technology (RTX 8000 in my case here in the lab). We have been getting very impressive results, […] Continue reading

vGPUs and vMotion, why the long stun times?


Advertise here with BSA

Last week one of our engineers shared something which I found very interesting. I have been playing with Virtual Reality technology and NVIDIA vGPUs for 2 months now. One thing I noticed is that we (VMware) introduced support for vMotion in vSphere 6.7 and support for vMotion of multi vGPU VMs in vSphere 6.7 U3. […] Continue reading

Disabling the frame rate limiter for your vGPU


Advertise here with BSA

I have been testing with Virtual Reality apps within a VM for the past few days and I am leveraging NVIDIA vGPU technology on vSphere 6.7 U3. I was running into some undesired behavior and was pointed to the fact that this could be due to the frame rate being limited by default (Thank Ben!). […] Continue reading

Installing the NVIDIA software on an ESXi host and configuring for vGPU usage


Advertise here with BSA

I have been busy in the lab with testing our VR workload within a VM and then streaming the output to a head-mounted display. Last week I received a nice new shiny NVIDIA RTX6000 to use in my Dell Precision workstation. I received a passively cooled RTX8000 at first, by mistake that is. And the […] Continue reading

Map head-mounted display to AMD ReLive VR instance


Advertise here with BSA

Warning before the post, I don’t have a good solution for you unfortunately at this time. One of the things I have been testing during my Take 3 is to have multiple head-mounted displays (VR goggles) on the same network connecting to multiple VMs. With ALVR this is pretty easy to do as the ALVR […] Continue reading

Can’t enable AMD ReLive VR during install of Radeon Pro Software?


Advertise here with BSA

Yesterday I bumped into an issue where I wanted to enable AMD ReLive VR but the option didn’t show in the configuration window strangely enough. I remembered that the first time I installed the Radeon Pro Software for Enterprise I had an option to enable AMD ReLive VR during the process, but I couldn’t recall […] Continue reading

AMD Radeon settings window transparent in a VM?


Advertise here with BSA

I have been playing with VR technology for the past month. The last couple of weeks my focus has been to install/configure a VM which streams the VR app over wifi to a headset. I ran into a problem with ALVR last week as documented here, but I also ran into an issue with the […] Continue reading
