FastX 3: The Best Performance Yet

FastX 3 is built around the StarNet-developed highly streamlined protocol that minimizes traffic on the network. Internal benchmark tests show a 25-50% speed improvement over FastX 2 and a 10-fold reduction in bandwidth consumption.

FastX 3 also compares very favorably when tested against VNC, NoMachine (NX) and X2Go. See our charts showing the result of two GTK benchmark tests.

FastX 3 vs. VNC, NoMachine (NX) and X2Go:

Rendering Speed Test

This test shows how well each product performed when compared to the test running on the local Linux server. One test used a high-speed LAN connection (no latency), the other a 25 Mbit WAN network with 100 milliseconds of latency. FastX-3 ran faster than the local machine (106% and 112%) while the others performed considerably slower.

Bandwidth Consumption Test

This test shows how much data (in megabytes) the 4 products consumed in the same LAN & WAN tests. FastX used between 2 and 7 times less bandwidth than VNC, NoMachine (NX) and X2Go.
