Unlock an unprecedented VDI user experience.

Take remote work to the next level with NVIDIA A16. Combined with NVIDIA Virtual PC (vPC)  or NVIDIA RTX Virtual Workstation (vWS) software, it enables virtual desktops and workstations with the power and performance to tackle any project from anywhere. Purpose-built for high-density, graphics-rich virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) and leveraging the NVIDIA Ampere architecture, A16 provides double the user density versus the previous generation, while ensuring the best possible user experience.


Raising the Bar on Virtual Desktops

Designed for Accelerated VDI

Optimized for user density and, combined with NVIDIA vPC software, enables graphics-rich virtual PCs accessible from anywhere


Affordable Virtual Workstations

Enables large framebuffer per user for entry-level virtual workstations, with NVIDIA RTX vWS software, running workloads such as computer aided design (CAD)


Flexibly Support Diverse User Types

Unique quad-GPU board design enables the provisioning of mixed user profile sizes and user types, such as virtual PCs and virtual workstations, on a single board.


Superior User Experience

Provides increased frame rate and lower end user latency versus CPU-only VDI, resulting in more responsive applications and a user experience that’s indistinguishable from a native PC


Double the User Density

Purpose-built for graphics-rich VDI with support for up to 64 concurrent users per board in a dual-slot form factor

High Resolution Display

Supports multiple, high-resolution monitors (up to two 4K or a single 5K) to enable maximum productivity and photorealistic quality in a virtualization environment


More than 2x the Encoder Throughput

More than double the encoder throughput versus previous generation M10, providing the multiuser performance required for streaming video and multimedia


Highest Quality Video

Supports the latest codecs, including H.265 encode/decode, VP9, and AV1 decode for the highest-quality video experiences


PCI Express Gen 4

Supports PCI Express Gen 4 data-transfer speeds from CPU memory for data-intensive tasks


NVIDIA Ampere Architecture

Includes NVIDIA Ampere architecture-based CUDA® cores, second-generation RT Cores, and third-generation Tensor Cores, delivering the flexibility to host virtual workstations powered by NVIDIA RTX Virtual Workstation (vWS) software or leverage unused VDI resources to run compute workloads.

Up to 70% Better Performance Using vPC


Tested by NVIDIA on knowledge worker workloads (Excel, Word, PowerPoint, Chrome, Media Player, PDF) running on dual 1920 x 1080 resolution displays with NVIDIA vGPU 13.0 and NVIDIA A16-1B.
