Finding a video card for RemoteFX
I'm now in search of a video card that is certified to run on Windows 2012 and provide RemoteFX ability.
So far I've found listings for Server 2008 R2 but not Server 2012.
I did determine that my server processor supports SLAT which is required
Hyper-V: List of SLAT-Capable CPUs for Hosts - TechNet Articles - United States (English) - TechNet Wiki:
"It is called “Rapid Virtualization Indexing (RVI)”, and has been called Extended Page Tables (EPT) by Intel and Nested Page Tables (NPT) by AMD"
Intel® VT-x with Extended Page Tables (EPT)
Filed under: News
Intel® VT-x with Extended Page Tables (EPT), also known as Second Level Address Translation (SLAT), provides acceleration for memory intensive virtualized applications. Extended Page Tables in Intel® Virtualization Technology platforms reduces the memory and power overhead costs and increases battery life through hardware optimization of page table management.
So now to find a card that isn't rated to support 100 virtual desktops when I only want to support 10.
So far I've found the Quadro cards have Windows 2012 drivers.
All I gotta say is either I'm blind or this should be easier than this. Microsoft if you want me to jump on the new stuff bandwagon, make this easier to find and buy.
