Is it just me, or does remote desktop tech SUCK?

Even with a wired, fiber connection, remote desktop software is always unreliable, stuttery, buggy, and generally horrible.
SOMETIMES it "works", but even at it's absolute 0%-packet-loss best, I can still notice the latency.

WHY DOES IT STILL SUCK IN 2024?
They've been developing this shit for years now.

Parsec, VNC, RDP, all cloud gaming services, etc etc etc etc. it's all the same.

    Remote desktop is shit. My company had a smooth brain idea to dev on RD terminal services. Yeah I love 25 seconds of input lag when typing.

      If it isn't directly connected to your hardware, then that's an entire degree of separation. That's an entire degree of shit that can frick up. Optimization means minimization.
      >then why do they do this moronic shit?
      Companies like the idea of consolidating all their hardware in one place because they're run by megalomaniacal hoarders who don't actually understand computers. They think it's more secure, and in some ways it is, but just adds a new level of complexity that could have been avoided altogether. It's one thing to connect to an internal server in order to access something, it's an entirely different line of bullshit to run the OS out of it.

      that freetard shit spazzed out when I used it, I opened nier automata and the camera fricking spun around like crazy as if I was whizzing the mouse along the table faster than the speed of light.
      mouse sensitivity is also completely fricked. could barely play gta without crashing into stuff because i couldn't spin the camera fast enough in that case.
      it's an unpolished freetard piece of shit as usual. steam link works better but it requires steaming pile of shit called steam to be installed...

      That's what they want you to think so you could not create a better alternative.

    there is nothing Terminal Service.
    You could game on this 60fps with crisp text (given the bandwith and latency)

    latency involves packet management + buffer management of the NIC + all the dozens/hundreds of networking devices that are between your host drive and your drive. Its even more noticibly so because we're constantly trying to calibrate our real time input and trying to get the remote host to respond to our real time physical inputs.

    yeah, I recently I tried to set up UVNC between two PCs that were on the same fricking desk, and the lag was unbearable, no matter the settings.

    They do indeed suck.
    A good deal of suckiness comes from Windows architecture.
    unlike rdp, most (all?) third party remote desktops can only mirror what graphic card is outputting to the physical screen. That implies a lot of unfixable crap, such as remote side mouse rendering which can't be disabled and will be a constant source of reminder for the latency. Another big issue is that these programs can't change the remote computer's resolution beyond what is the physical connected monitor is capable of displaying.

    RDP doesn't have those issues but Microsoft refuses to make it fast, so we are stuck with this crap.

      UVNC has option to make virtual displays with higher than native resolution. it's janky, but mostly works.

        AMD drivers also allow higher resolutions as the connected display allows. So in conjunction with sunshine stream any resolution is possible.

        But next time you want to work with your computer locally, your monitor will fail to display anything unless you have remembered to reset the resolution settings or remote into the computer to change it back.
        Would suck if you don't have your remote software host to launch on startup

    How can I autistically make it not suck? I like Parsec, it actually works for me and family, but yeah sometimes it gets goofy like you said, even though I try to run everything on ethernet. What can I do to optimize performance? Genuinely what do I buy and what config do I change

    parsec colors suck also, and to improve them you have to pay them pigs.
