Note: NVIDIA Tesla cards have license limitations

Systems using NVIDIA Tesla-based GPUs, including M60, M10, and M6, are subject to licensing restrictions which may further reduce the available number of monitors or their available resolutions. For systems using Tesla-based GPUs, only licensed displays and resolutions will use GRID functionality. For more information, see NVIDIA’s Grid Licensing User Guide

Info: Display limitations on Microsoft Azure

Graphics Agents running on Microsoft Azure may be limited to a single 2560x1600 display, depending on the state of NVIDIA GRID licensing.

  1. PCoIP agent machines using these cards require special configuration and have limitations beyond those documented in this guide. For more information and detailed instructions, see HP Anyware Instructions for Consumer Grade NVIDIA GPUs in the Teradici Knowledge Base. Additional cards will likely work, but have not been tested.
