I’ve recently been fortunate enough to be able to work on deploying a Dell 720 with two K2 cards, VMware 6.0 and XenDesktop/XenApp 7.6. I must admit, I am impressed with the performance I have received with this combination. It won’t beat out a custom quad SLI rig, but for an enterprise/business environment, its great.
My question is, does anyone have performance specs (“real world”) between the two different cards? Or even a gut feel? We’re in a position to get another server, and wanted to look at the possibility of K1 cards for a higher user density.
Just looking at the specs of the boards tells me it will be slower, but its hard to know "how much slower" without kicking the tires.
Any information would be greatly appreciated! I’ll post any information I find as I go along as I’m just beginning my search on this information.
