I tried doing something like this with an eval copy of windows multipoint server, but couldnt get DirectX applications to run propperly. Could this solution work for lan gaming events?

VGX is GPU based so you'd need to spend thousands on dedicated compute hardware....

Initially it'll cost thousands but a few years into the technology it may become more affordable no?

That is likely using RemoteFX? Similar concept I suppose, basically uses the server's GPU to render graphics to remote terminals.

I've played with RemoteFX at home and it does indeed work. DirectX runs, although not smoothly. Could be due to the fact that my server only has a GT210 in it though.
