GTC 17 - NVIDIA is always showing off incredible new technology at its own GPU Technology Conference, and this year is no different with a new system shown off that is capable of driving multiple VR headsets at once.




It's just a proof of concept right now, with the system running 4 x NVIDIA Quadro P6000 graphics cards on 4 x virtual machines, all on HTC's Lighthouse tracking system. The 4 x Quadro P6000 graphics cards feed their GPU horsepower into HTC's Vive Business Edition headsets, making it perfect for professional multi-user VR systems in amusement parks, cinemas, and arcades.


Tom Kaye, Senior Architect at NVIDIA explains: "The possibilities are endless. With the addition of remote management and reliability features, such as multiple templates, clone on boot and remote rebuilds, we could see system builders working to create a robust, ready-to-deploy multi-user VR appliance".
