RDP Performance Whitepaper

How well does Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP 6.1) perform in Windows Server 2008 and Windows Vista? Read all about it in this RDP Performance Whitepaper.

The whitepaper quantifies the bandwidth requirements for ClearType font in different applications and for Desktop Themes with varying color depths. It quantifies the bandwidth required by the compositing DWM in Windows Vista and describes the bulk compression options in RDP 6.1.

The whitepaper is quite a good read if you're interested in using RDP in low bandwidth environments. You might consider disabling ClearType, using the Windows Classic theme and reducing your color depth down from 32bit.
