    Can someone please offer clarification about monitors over LAN and PC specs necessary for many simultaneous touchscreens?

    I would like to have many independent touch screens monitors (between 6-10) controlling a single PC running audio software. What specs in a PC are required to make this work smoothly? Do monitors over LAN consume as much GPU as when directly plugged into a video output? Can I use an external GPU with SpaceDesk? Does this SpaceDesk consume much CPU?

    I apologize for having so many questions and I appreciate any/all help!

    Hi @samsonandersson,

    Current spacedesk BETA version:

    – supports touchscreen on one viewer display only (on first client to send touch input), then it will use a single mouse touch input on other displays connected

    – consumes GPU and CPU, the amount it consumes depends on how big the display resolution is and how many spacedesk displays are connected

    – is not yet GPU configurable, spacedesk cannot select which GPU to use. spacedesk is always using the default main graphics adapter of your primary machine. This feature will not be available any time soon.

    – To achieve a better performance, spacedesk connection must be over a direct wired connection (LAN cable and/or Android USB cable).
    For more info please check the chapter Performance tuning in the user manual https://forum.spacedesk.netuser-manual/.
