VMware Horizon with 4th Gen Intel Xeon Scalable Processors: Powering VDI Performance

April 24, 2024

VDI environments continue to be a popular solution for companies looking to provide virtual desktops for their employees in a centrally managed environment. As companies grow, more VDI capacity is needed to sustain productivity. Performance needs also continue to change and might require more CPU resources than in the past.

Using 8462Y+ Intel Xeon CPUs provides a significant improvement over the 8358 in terms of overall VDI capacity, and does so at a similar or lower cost per user. Additionally the 6442Y+ CPUs are almost as efficient as the 8358 with 4GB of VM RAM, and using more system DRAM significantly increases the VDI capacity with these CPUs when VMs have 8GB of RAM.

For companies looking to expand VDI capacity or improve the user experience for their VDI users, the 4th generation of CPUs are generally a better choice over the 8358.
