Graphics Display & Remote Connections

At our company during design reviews our engineers sometimes like to show their Solidworks models to help explain their designs/problems. This usually means hauling their PC into the conference room and connecting it up to the projector, which is a very cumbersome process.

We have the ability to connect to our Solidwork Desktop PC's through a laptop in the conference room via Remote Desktop Connection in Windows. AFAIK the software is running on the Solidwork PC (using the CPU) but does it make use of the PC's graphics cards (Quadro 3700) or is ir graphically equivalent to running Solidworks trough the laptops graphics card?

Any comments or insight into this topic are appreciated!
