Remote FX: AMD Radeon HD 6870 compatible !

The AMD Radeon HD 6870 was tested with RemoteFX successfully and is compatible.
The driver version used is Catalyst 11.2


  1. can you please explain how?
    I installed w2k8 r2 with amd 6870.
    I managed to install driver via the trick of the failed install of ati drivers and than manual install via device manager update drivers, browse c:\ati
    but how do I use remote fx, since it is grayed out in hyper-v settings??

  2. Hi manfred,
    when remotefx is grayed out, you need to activate it first:
    1. Goto server manager
    2. Click add roles
    3. Add remotedesktop services
    4. Add role features : host for remotedesktop virtualization
    5. Select RemoteFX

    This should fix your problem.

    Let me know if you need further assistance.

  3. hello
    I have a radeon 6850 and win2k8r2 sp1.
    installed the Hyper-v and RDP.
    drivers amd 12.1, 11.2.

    Although it can not run machines with the function of 3w.
    After installing the ATI drivers, I can not add new virtual machines in hyper-v (no chart appears with a field to specify the amount of memory ram.).
    Are there any drivers behave in function of the hyper-v?

    Please help

  5. Hello

    What are the drivers for the GPU are you using?
    Can you share it?
    Are there any unofficial drivers that support this feature?
    Do not install the drivers in compatibility mode?

    Here is a link to a screenshot:

  6. What CPU are you using? Does it support SLAT?

    Check following article:


  8. My processor is a Core 2 Duo E6400.
    This probably does not support EPT.
    What gtorsze the LGA 775 platform, there is no such processors.

  9. E6400 does not support EPT.

    You can use i3,i5 or i7 CPU (Nehalem, Westmere or Sandybridge architecture) or Intel Xeon CPU´s numbered E5500 should work.
