I have just release the Horizon View VDI Calculator v.3.1 with important updates to the graphics stack in order to correctly support the new 3D software and hardware rendering.

What’s New in Release 3.1

– Added support for new 3D functionalities in Horizon View 5.2
– Added support for 64, 128, 256 and 512MB Video RAM
– Removed 24 or 32 bit color option
– Video resolutions removed: 800×600, 1024×768, 1280×1024, 1600×1200, 1152×864, 1280×800, 1440×900

Along with the changes to the 3D support there are important storage and memory footprint overheads to be observed. I am writing another article to explain what is changing with vSphere 5.1 and Horizon View 5.2 when 3D support is enabled for a virtual desktop.
