Where are the "new graphics acceleration options for virtualized environments"?

Copper Contributor

Your article promises new graphics acceleration options to replace Remotefx.  Where are they?  Discrete Device Assignment is not an option for us as the hardware needed to run this is in excess of $20,000 per server and then there are additional per user licensing costs on top of that from the GPU vendor.  We were successfully running hyper-v vms with remote desktop session host on Server 2016 and they were running RemoteFX.  Now we have Server 2019 and you have deprecated RemoteFX without providing any valid solutions or replacements.  We need a work around so we can run RemoteFX on Server 2019 and on our RDSH vms.  Please advise.

That's an old article.  A lot of time has passed since then and this is the reason for my question.  Microsoft promised new graphics options and right now the only options I see are Discrete Assignment which is extremely expensive given that it will require hardware of up to $20,000 per server plus GPU subscriptions paid to NVidia.  These are not new options.  They are too expensive to be considered options.
