When using type 1 bare metal hypervisors like ESXi, are you able to play 3d games, stream hd content, or do other graphic intensive activities on the client (assuming they are within spec of the host server)?
Example: Could you use an old outdated thin client PC to play a modern 3d game that is way above the client's specs, but within the server's specs? Will it perform at an acceptable level without any graphics lag? Is there much performance lost due to the virtualization?
Or are these types of virtualized guest OS's primarily more for simpler, productivity related type tasks.
