Supported Hardware

Nvidia graphics, AMD graphics, and Intel graphics.

Once the option is checked on Splashtop On-Prem app, it will leverage the supported hardware installed on your local computer to decode, which consequently enhances the performances in a remote session (up to 60 FPS with 1080P resolution and 30 FPS with 4k resolution) meanwhile lowers local computer's CPU loading as well (up to 100% saved).  

Once the option is checked on Splashtop Streamer, it will leverage the supported hardware installed on your remote computer to encode the streaming data, so that'll help to get better performances in a remote session (increase FPS up to 50% or more in some cases) meanwhile lowers CPU loading on the remote computer with the streamer installed (up to 30% lower in some cases).

 

Note

  • The performances in a remote session (FPS) are also influenced by other settings/factors, such as rendering options, streamer settings, network status, network bandwidth, etc.
