VNC on a gigabit ethernet link

Bear in mind that the PCI bus of a typical PC can only handle ~128Mbps, and
that AGP 1x can handle ~256Mbps. These would still leave your hardware well
short of the 700Mbps capability you're looking for.
If all you're looking for is a demo, you might prefer to serve *several* VNC
Viewers with data - that would make it possible to saturate your 700Mbps
limit, in spite of the hardware limitations of the viewer PCs.
Finally, you should use VNC Viewer 4 for this, since it has far better
rendering performance than VNC Viewer 3.
