The Graphics Agent for Windows, in combination with a GPU, supports a maximum of four displays on the PCoIP client and a maximum resolution of 4K UHD (3840×2160).

Important: Display acceleration requires a supported GPU

The Graphics Agent for Windows must be deployed with one or more supported GPUs. GPUs may have their own licensing requirements.

PCoIP agents support any of these monitor configurations:

  • Vertical line
  • Horizontal line
  • Box display

Monitors can be used in any standard rotation (0°, 90°, 180°, or 270°). Any monitor can be the primary.

The Graphics Agent for Windows, in combination with one or more properly configured and licensed GPUs, provides the following benefits:

  • Display resolutions: The Graphics Agent for Windows can provide any resolution a client asks for up to 4K UHD. The practical number of displays available at any given resolution is determined by the GPU, host system hardware, GPU profile licensing, and the connecting client's version.

  • Hot-pluggable displays from Tera2 PCoIP Zero Clients: Displays may be added and removed as needed during an active PCoIP session when using a Tera2 PCoIP Zero Client.

  • 3D application support: Full-screen 3D applications are supported.

Note: Using multiple high-resolution displays

Systems with multiple high-resolution displays, such as quad 4K UHD topologies, require powerful system infrastructure. Be sure to use a system with sufficient bandwidth, client and host capabilities, and an appropriate number of licensed GPUs to support your required display topology.

Important: Attaching monitors to the host machine in not supported

PCoIP client supports a maximum of four displays. Attaching extra monitors to the host machine will conflict with client display topologies.

Caution: Low-memory vGPU profiles may limit displays

If you're running on a Windows 10 or Windows Server 2016 machine, a vGPU profile with less than 1024 MB may be limited to a single monitor. See NVIDIA's The Right vGPU Profile for Windows 10.
