Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) is a proprietary peer-to-peer network protocol used in Remote Desktop Services to provide remote control, remote desktop and session sharing services. Windows uses the Remote Desktop Protocol to share graphical user interface in a virtual way. This helps user’s access computers remotely as if they are local. Nowadays, there are many third-party applications that offer some kind of remote desktop functionality. However, not all of them use RDP for this purpose. There are several versions of Microsoft’s Remote Desktop Protocol available for Windows users, including standard RDP and the more advanced Windows GPU RDP. In this article, we will explore what exactly is Windows GPU RDP and how to use it.
What is Windows GPU RDP?
RDP stands for Remote Desktop Protocol. It’s an industry-standard protocol that allows a user on one computer to access another computer over a network connection, and has the same graphical user interface and application experience as if they had logged in directly to the other computer. RDP provides the remote desktop functionality, which allows users to work on a computer that’s not physically located in the same room. It can be used if a computer is located in a different building, or even in a different country. RDP is an essential component of the remote desktop functionality available on all modern operating systems. The graphical user interface (GUI) is only one component of a computer’s functionality. The GUI consists of the visual elements of the computer: its display, the mouse and keyboard. The GUI is what allows users to interact with a computer. But there are other components of a computer that don’t have a GUI. These components include data storage devices, printers, network connections and applications. RDP is used to share the GUI and GUI-less components of a computer.
How to Use Windows GPU RDP?
Windows GPU RDP uses the remote graphics capabilities of the Universal Windows Platform (UWP) to display the remote computer’s screen on the local computer. To use Windows GPU RDP, both computers must meet the hardware requirements. Both computers must be running Windows 10 and the computers should be connected to the same network. Once the connection is established, you can open the Hyper-V Manager on the host computer (the computer whose screen you want to view remotely) and enable Remote Attached Graphics. After that, you can select the virtual machine that you want to view remotely and click on “Connect.” On the client computer, go to the Remote Desktop app and select the “Windows GPU RDP” option. This will trigger a connection request. After that, it will open the Remote Desktop connection and you will see the remote computer’s screen on your computer.
Benefits of Windows GPU RDP
– Windows GPU RDP is the fastest remote desktop protocol among all other RDP versions. It even outperforms local graphical user interface and has very low latency compared to other protocols. – The remote computer can be more than 50 feet away from the host computer. – It is ideal for users who work with graphical user interfaces and need high-performance computing.
