As the title suggests are there any software and/ or hardware clients available now that support Microsoft RDP version 8.0 with RemoteFX? The only one I've read about is MS RDP client in Windows 8.

UPDATE: I contacted Dell Wyse and at the moment the only support for RDP 8 and enhanced RemoteFX is in Windows 8 and Server 2012. Apparently, MS have not decided when to release an updated RDP client for Windows 7 and that delays third-party support for RDP 8.


Not sure if they support RDP 8.0, yet, but your best bet might be iTap Mobile as they currently support RemoteFX on iPad/iPhone as well as Mac and Linux.


HP released a RDP 8 add-on for their WES7 based thin clients.
