Figure in at least 7Mb/s per client just for resting state screen draws. If there is activity (all of the games - childsplay, gcompris, tuxmath, tuxtype - are real bandwidth hogsand can eat 20Mb/s for each instance).In support of James's point here, TuxType will actually eat even more--as high as 73Mb/sec per instance.OUCH!! I have only clocked an aggregate and average. Since tuxtype andtuxmath use the same engine I suspect they will be equivalent bandwidthhogs.
The bandwidth needed doesn't really depend on the things like processing power and calculations. It's just the amount of on-screen activity. Video and fast graphics take up a lot of bandwidth.
