Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 are now available to OEM partners for integrating it to their Operating Systems. On February 16th, the service pack 1 will be available to MSDN and TechNet subscribers and volume license customers.

If you are a single user, SP1 will be available to the general public on 22nd February, 2011. The new service pack includes all the updates previously available through Windows Update. The biggest feature included in Windows 7 SP1 is the availability of RemoteFX and Dynamic Memory client side support.

RemoteFX is an exciting technology that lets you virtualize the Graphical Processing Unit (GPU) on the server side and deliver next-generation rich media and 3D user experiences for VDI. Dynamic Memory lets you increase the virtual machine density with the current resources without sacrificing performance and scalability of the system.
