PCoIP Ultra Enhancements

PCoIP Ultra provides the following benefits:

  • Support for 4K/UHD high frame rate content.
  • PCoIP Ultra CPU Offload provides efficient scaling across multicore CPUs leveraging AVX2 instructions.
  • PCoIP Ultra GPU Offload provides CPU and network bandwidth efficiencies by leveraging the H.264 encoder capabilities of NVIDIA NVENC hardware.
  • PCoIP Ultra Auto-Offload offers build-to-lossless color accuracy in conjunction with network efficiency by automatically switching between CPU Offload, and GPU Offload modes, based on display activity.


To take advantage of PCoIP Ultra, you need to meet these requirements:

  • PCoIP Ultra CPU Offload requires support for AVX2 instructions on both the remote computer and the client device.
  • PCoIP Ultra GPU Offload and PCoIP Auto-Offload require a PCoIP supported NVIDIA graphics card on the remote computer.
