HP unveils two new thin clients
HP t610 and t510 to offer improved security and performance
HP has released details of two new additions to its thin client line up.
The HP t610 and HP t510 Flexible Series Thin Client are intended to offer the flexibility of thin clients, with added features for security and performance.
The HP t610 runs a BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) that complies with the security recommendations of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), providing hard identification security for sensitive computing environments and giving businesses a second layer of protection for company data.
The thin client also includes an on-board Trusted Platform Module, which is an integrated cryptographic security chip that ensures only authorized access to networks under the certification requirements of the Trusted Computing Group.
The thin client runs on a dual-core AMD G-series Fusion processor, running at 1.65GHz, with high definition graphics, and HP active thermal management, to ensure the device does not shut down from over-heating.
The HP t610 comes with two chassis configurations - Standard and PLUS, which offers additional legacy ports, quad-head display graphics capabilities and connectivity options supporting fibre network interface cards and 802.11 a/b/g/n wireless support with dual antenna for enhanced connectivity.
The t610 will be available with a range of operating systems, including Microsoft Windows Embedded Standard 7, Windows Embedded Standard 2009 and HP ThinPro thin-client enhanced Linux.
The HP t510 runs on a VIA Eden X2 U4200 1GHz dual core CPU, with VIA ChromotionHD 2.0 graphics enable hardware acceleration of streaming multimedia for better Web browsing and remote session multimedia experiences.
Both the HP t510 and HP t610 offer a true, PC-like experience for virtualized desktop environments. The two platforms double the minimum amount of RAM that ships on HP thin clients from 1GB to 2GB.
"With these new, flexible thin clients, businesses can protect their data more effectively, and they get an exceptional user experience with better graphics and video performance, to meet the demands of segments such as financial, healthcare, public sector, retail and healthcare," said Kobi Elbaz, director, Commercial Solutions, HP Personal Systems Group EMEA. "We also made sure the t610 and t510 are easy to integrate and manage with a broad set of management tools."
