My question and situation is similar to Recommended Connection Speed for Remote Desktop question but I need a little more info.
I know that lag can be a factor in working on remote desktop. Lets ignore that. My question is about is the ideal data rate for a good remote desktop connection.
Assume that my RDP is 1080p display. I am using external monitor that is 1080p as well.
The number of pixels in 1080p are
1920 * 1080 = 2,073,600 pixels.
Each pixel uses 16bits of color (2 Byte). Thus the number of bytes used by one screen is
(2,073,600 bit ) * 2 Bytes = 4,147,200 Bytes or ~ 4MB
Since the screen is refreshed at least 10 times a second (lets assume 10 here), the refresh rate required for smooth connection would be = 4MB*10 = 40 MB/Sec
Does these numbers make sense? Does RDP uses something better than this because that is a lot of bandwidth?
Does the size of monitor at RDP end make a difference at the connection? Bigger monitor takes more bandwidth than smaller one?
