Microsoft RemoteFX introduces a new set of end user experience enhancements to remote desktop computing in Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1. By leveraging a single, virtualized graphics processor, the Remote Desktop Virtualization Host can be used to create a rich, local-like desktop experience for multiple remote users.
Microsoft RemoteFX allows users work remotely in a Windows Aero desktop environment, watch full-motion video, enjoy Silverlight animations and run 3D applications – all with the fidelity of a local-like performance when connecting over the LAN. User desktops are actually hosted in the data center as part of a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) or a session virtualization environment (formerly known as Terminal Services). With RemoteFX, these users will be able to access their workspace via a standard RDP connection from a broad range of client devices – rich PCs, thin clients and very simple, low-cost devices.
AMD is supporting Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 and RemoteFX with the following AMD FirePro™ professional graphics:
