“In order to demonstrate that the system does run steadily, a VMware workstation was turned on, along with 9 VM clients running simultaneously. Each virtual instance was then allocated about 2G of memory,” said Mark Tekunoff, Senior Technology Manager, Kingston Technology. “Additionally, a copy of Crysis was turned on in the last VM, the equivalent of 10 computers running on one desktop computer. A professional gamer obviously wouldn’t choose to play this way, but it was a great way to prove that the system worked perfectly!”
The equipment of the desktop included an Intel 920 Core i7 CPU a Gigabyte GA-EX58 UD5 motherboard and NVidia graphics card.
