AFAIK the RDP limit is 4096x2048.  See
I think you're limited to 16-bit color depth if you go beyond

The maximum resolution of a Sun Ray 2FS is 3840x1200, split
over two monitors.  A pair of 2FS's in a multihead group could
contain two of these images side by side.  1920x1200 is the
limit for a 2FS with a single monitor, and was the limit for the
Sun Ray 1g, which has been out of production for a couple of

So 1600x2048 will fit on 2 single-monitor Sun Rays, with a
little left over.  Maybe enough for decorations and controls
around the image.  3 Sun Rays would give you an entire extra
monitor's worth of display area.  2 Sun Rays 2FS's with two
monitors each would give you two monitors' worth of extra

You wouldn't "split" the image.  You'd set up a 2- or 3-way
Sun Ray multihead group and enable Xinerama, which will
cause the group to be presented as a single screen to X
applications including the Windows Connector.
