NVIDIA® Multi-OS technology enables a designer, artist, or engineer, to simultaneously run multiple, business-critical, graphics-intensive applications, from a fully virtualized system, eliminating the need for a multiple system work environment.

An Multi-OS workstation, with dual Quadro GPUs and virtualization software, lets a user assign a dedicated Quadro GPU to both the host operating system and a range of optionally loaded guest operating systems, thus creating a fully virtualized workstation*. Using an Multi-OS workstation, professionals can achieve improved productivity and resource management for faster results. In addition, IT managers increase the use of a single system’s resources, reducing IT deployments for overall lower cost of ownership.

Minimum System Requirements*

  • Dual Quadro 6000, 5000, 4000, 2000, and FX 5800, FX 4800, and FX 3800 GPUs
  • Intel VT-d technology based chipsets, including Intel Xeon 5500 series or the Intel 5520
  • Parallels Workstation Extreme Software. See a full list of Parallels qualified systems that meet the requirements here. (Note systems listed may not have received full system-level testing of Multi-OS certified workstations.)
