    Hi,

    There is no simple answer 🙂 It depends on the GPU and the drivers installed. There might be some cases where the virtual framebuffer is faster instead of getting the images from the GPU’s video memory.

    Well got the same question, I expect at this answer:

    – physical display is when you have a real screen (desktop)

    -virtual screen is when you have no real screen (headless server)

     

    maybe someone could bring more details on this feature and which one to choose for desktop or headless server.

    Or maybe this is the good answer:

    What is the difference between physical desktop and virtual desktop? https://www.nomachine.com/AR10K00700
