Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops support two types of display protocols:
- Thinwire —Thinwire is the Citrix default display remoting technology used in Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops. Thinwire meets most general business use cases and should be used for delivering typical desktop workloads to include desktops, office productivity or browser-based applications. Thinwire is also recommended for multi-monitor, high resolution or high DPI scenarios, and for workloads with a mixture of video and non-video content.
- HDX 3D Pro —HDX 3D Pro mode is recommended when vGPUs are used. The 3D Pro mode uses the GPU for hardware acceleration and configures Thinwire using optimal settings for graphics. This provides a more fluid experience for 3D professional graphics.
