Headless Ghost is a display emulator (dummy plug) that fits discreetly in to the video output socket on your computer.Once the Headless Ghost is attached, your operating system detects a connected display and enables the GPU. The GPU hardware is often disabled until a display is attached resulting in poor performance and a limited working resolution for remote users.With the GPU enabled, it is possible to perform for various tasks including high resolution hardware accelerated remote desktop and GPGPU operations like crypto currency mining.
Emulates a monitor connected to the graphics card. Especially good for those who have graphics cards which are incompatible with simple dummy plugs. Perfect for using with PC, Mac Mini, Intel NUC and any other device with HDMI output.

Works exactly how I needed it to!I bought this to trick windows 10 into thinking I have another monitor because it thinks my laptops external graphics card is a monitor.Otherwise sometimes when I restart my computer the screen will stay black until I connect a monitor through HDMI then it will show on both and I can then disconnect it then it switches to the built in screen and I can finally use my computer.With this I don't need to do that anymore!
These would "trick" or emulate a monitor being connected to your session host so that using remote desktop software will also allow you to view the session at a much higher resolution.I'm glad to say that this little guy works perfectly after a reboot!
Problem is that when I disconnect my monitor and reboot, the remote display is at a very low resolution.
Now in the past, I had used a method of creating a dummy display that I forced resolution to, but if I ever had a problem and really did need to plug in a monitor, the real display was just blank.
Plugged in my Aorus 1070.
Aorus dead in 20 seconds as motherboard was burnt.
$700 gone thanks to this little thing.
I'm running Linux 14.04.1 with the AMD Catalyst graphics drivers and have it plugged into a AMD R9 290 card.
Worked for 3 weeks, now it doesn't.
