Does anyone know what the performance will be with or without a host card on a laptop running a vmware view client to a server which is 50-100m away on LAN Gigabit. The specs say that it can handle 60fps @ 1080p but is this true with a soft client like vmware view? I would like to use it for CAD/CAM software on a remote server via laptop but have no idea what the performance will be like.

  • Clarify, you have a gigabit point to point circuit? You have a Gigabit LAN hooked to an Internet connection? What's the latency? – SpacemanSpiff Jan 5 '13 at 14:55
  • @SpacemanSpiff I have A to B Gigabit LAN in our test LAB. Latency is <1ms – user152108 Jan 5 '13 at 14:58
  • This seems relevant: unidesk.com/blog/… I think you will just need to test this to get an acceptable answer though, and bandwidth will be more of a problem than video performance. – SpacemanSpiff Jan 5 '13 at 15:00
  • @SpacemanSpiff Yes however thin client with host card is limited to 20mbps. So i don't know if this limit can be lifted.. – user152108 Jan 5 '13 at 15:05
  • @SpacemanSpiff By the way the link you posted is thin client without hostcard. Thats why the crappy performance. – user152108 Jan 5 '13 at 15:11

PCoIP at that bitrate will handle CAD/CAM fine - your issue will be the virtual GPU's ability to render the display in the first place.

  • It will be from a Quadro6000 via host card. No virtual GPU. – user152108 Jan 6 '13 at 17:38
