I know the original purpose is different, but could MultiPoint be used for gaming as well?


update this seems to be rather neglected, but what about audio? Does MultiPoint Server support more then one sound channel e.g. via onBoard sound + HDMI?

From what I can tell (I haven't actuall yused it personally yet) it uses Hyper-V VMs and RDP + RemoteFX, so you'll be limited to the capabilites/requirments of RemoteFX.

Apparently RemoteFX will handle upto 4 monitors @1280 x 1024 in a 'VM setting', if your dedecated GPU has >275MB. Less monitors/more video RAM as you increase resolution.

Check out:

Hope that helps.

thanks. That also makes me wonder about the audio capabilities... Guess I'll just have to test it which I'll do when I know the answer to What to consider when evaluating Windows MultiPoint Server 2011? –  Tobias Kienzler Mar 14 '11 at 5:58
