Graphics on the server
Windows 8 is moving to a single graphics driver model - the Windows Display Driver Model (WDDM) – offering more features over the older XP Display Driver Model commonly run on physical and virtualized servers. Windows 8 also brings updates to the inbox display driver (previously known as Standard VGA driver) which is the default standard on server systems. This session will provide information about providing support for Windows Server 8 systems that do not have WDDM capable graphics adapters, without having to update the hardware. We will also cover key design points for consideration in future server systems including utilizing graphics adapters for generic computational purposes and scenarios.
