It's very similar, but the technology:- RemoteFX is an enhancement of RDP, so as long your thin client is Windows based, and uses the latest version of RDP, it will detect RemoteFX support.

RemoteFX is similar to PCoIP.

See this document for a comparison of technologies

You need to have a supported graphics card and CPU to enable RemoteFX.

Sadly, it's unlikely you will be able to get this to function as a VM, because the SLAT information which is a requirement of the CPU is not passed from Host CPU to VM.

and you would then also need to use VM Direct Path to present the PCI card directly to the VM, and this has issues with VMware!

I'm afraid this one is really Bare Metal install.

I do have epm the server is a xeon i will rebuild the hyper-v and see if that works
Are saying the problem will be the video card but it just need pass through for the vm and my server allows that I think it is a xeon 5520 double socket intel server motherboard with 2 quad core xeons with hyper threading and 32gb ram

I thought you can use hyper-v in core mode and install 2008 r2 full with gui inside on a vm with nested hyper-v is that not true

are these your processors:-

http://ark.intel.com/products/40200/Intel-Xeon-Processor-E5520-8M-Cache-2_26-GHz-5_86-GTs-Intel-QPI

if so, they do NOT support SLAT. SLAT or Intel® VT-x with Extended Page Tables (EPT)

I did but as I have not got it yet I will think about purchasing either a amd opteron 8000 server or keep to intel xeons mind you I may wait until vmware v6 comes out and see what hardware features that's going to have ? Do you think they will follow 2012 hyper-v 's numa where the host can borrow memory from another host for a ha vm ?

I would stick with Intel CPUs for the future! (you will be able to run more Guests types - cannot say no more at present!)
