Which Consumer GPU are known to work with hyper-v Remotefx?

#1 Posted by Bieberfan147 (72 posts) -

I am trying decide whether to buy a gtx 770 or r9 280x in hopes of them working with remotefx in hyper-v and hoping to game with them in VMs while utilizing directx.

I have heard of a couple success stories of consumer grade graphics card working fine in 2012 or 2008 server hyper-v with remotefx, such as the gtx 450 or gtx 460 ( i think), gtx 650, maybe some radeon cards.

Since these are older cards I was wondering if there were anymore recent cards that should or have been known to work fine with hyper-v and remotefx under windows server 2008-2012

If you really plan on going that route I'd just recommend doing this...

keep in mind once you have just 3 or more users gaming on it your already going to reach the limits of your network and they will notice lag... The performance in general is also going to be worse.

All the vms will be running on the one rig, no one would be accessing them

So wait your actually going to play multiple games at once and your the only one using the rig?

Yes, see I am Korean and the only way to maximize my apm potential is to play 30 concurrent stracraft 2s

I think you should be playing LoL, no one in Korea plays starcraft 2 anymore, that was so 2013. But anyways you could run more than one starcraft normally I am sure and just tab between them, be faster.

This is only because my brethren believed to have mastered the game and reached their maximum potential. Wait until they see what I can do after years of training of mastering 30 concurrent stracraft 2 instances.
