X-Win32 PC X-server performance jump for OpenGL API-accelerated remote applications on Core Duo iMac
X-Win32 is a PC X server that lets you connect to multiple UNIX/Linux desktops at the same time and also run some X Windows applications in separate Xterm windows. V7.1 supports OpenGL API-based hardware acceleration and adds suppport for 55 additional OpenGL extensions. OpenGL API-based X Windows applications running on a remote Red Hat Linux server showed frame rate improvements of up to four times on a 2GHz Core Duo iMac using Boot Camp, compared to a Windows PC running with a 2GHz Pentium processor.
