On the server side the GPU is used to accelerate most operations in the pipeline. These intermediate stages represent a big chunk of the total computing power needed by NoMachine to perform its task, very often as much as the final video encoding itself. We are working on GPU-assisted video encoding but the big variability of drivers and the quality of the various drivers provided by the different GPU vendors has caused us a lot of headaches, so much that we have not been able, yet, to introduce such a feature in the software available for download. Making a server version optimized for a single GPU family (NVidia for example) is certainly simpler and it’s something we are evaluating for the near future.
