I have a desktop computer connected to Gigabit LAN. This is the remote desktop host. I also have a laptop, also connected to Gigabit LAN. This is the client. The screen resolution of the laptop is 2560*1440. It connects to a separate account on the desktop, and it works great. The quality is crisp and it's relatively smooth.
However, upon inspecting the network traffic, I noticed the Remote Desktop connection uses at most 50mbps, and about 5mbps on average. This is nowhere near the 1000mbps the connection is capable of.
I understand why this is happening. Remote Desktop is designed for over-the-network connections or multiple LAN clients. Though, in my case I want much higher quality, specifically a stable 60fps.
Final goal: Connect laptop to desktop, such that the connection is nearly inconceivable due to high performance.
Is it at all possible to utilize more bandwidth with Remote Desktop or is there another software or hardware solution to do this?
