We have installed the latest version of Horizon View with some users using AutoCAD or other graphics applications....
What are your experiences with the current selection of thin clients? Is there a consensus on the best available depending on the needs of the end user? Is there much value in having decent hardware inside?
For Horizon View clients in general, it makes most sense to have zero clients with the Teradici chip inside. Given that you don't need to add anything to the client, the thin client will not give you more features than the zero client.
The VMware View Connection Server does not have graphics-acceleration capabilities. That functionality is in the vSphere hypervisor that makes both software-based graphics acceleration and hardware-based acceleration available with NVIDIA adapters, which allow ESXi to use the graphics processing unit from that hardware.
There is a very good white paper available from VMware that describes hardware-accelerated three-dimensional graphics performance in Horizon View 5.2 here (.pdf).
