Did I really see a $165 Thin Client doing 55fps+ with Borderlands 2 with HDX 3D Pro, Citrix XenDesktop?

Back in May 2015, at Citrix’s Synergy 2015, I was involved with an HDX demo at Citrix Synergy 2015, the remit was pretty simple – to show really good HDX 3D Pro frame rates, good enough to satisfy gamers, onlow-cost hardware using ONLY existing, shipping-today, fully-supported production ready products. We also want to show that HDX 3D Pro can run really well on low cost entry level thin clients, and so we chose a single core Intel NUC DE3815TYKHE Atom Processor. The upshot was we showed 60fps gaming on a hardware device costing $150 with a $15 (System on a Chip) SoC enabled plugin supported OS.

Low cost Thin Clients can be super performant if they have good hardware decode support and SoC technology. The Citrix Linux Receiver provides an SDK for Thin Client vendors, or a third-party to write a software plugin that will connect the hardware on the Thin Client to HDX and the Receiver. The presence (or not) of such a plugin and the quality of it is usually key to a performant thin-client.
