HP introduces new thin clients

13 Feb 2012 Las Vegas - HP has launched the powerful new HP t610 Flexible Series Thin Client and HP t510 Thin Client with industry-leading performance and security, enabling businesses to protect their data more effectively while improving employees' user experience.

The HP t510 and HP t610 come standard with dual-core CPUs and offer graphics cores that offload computing from the server to the chipset, enabling users to easily stream multimedia and work with high-definition (HD) graphics. The HP t510 and HP t610 also enable the use of multiple monitors and remote connections.

Ideal for industries such as health care, financial services, public sector and retail, where employees must often access sensitive data, the HP t510 and HP t610 offer industry-first hard identification security as well as a broad set of tools to simplify management.

"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", stated Jeff Groudan, director, Marketing, Thin Clients, HP. "We also made sure the t610 and t510 are easy to integrate and manage with a broad set of management tools."

The HP t610 is the industry's first thin client to feature both a BIOS (basic input/output system) that complies with the security recommendations of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and an on-board Trusted Platform Module that protects access to networks under the certification requirements of the Trusted Computing Group.

These features provide hard identification security for sensitive computing environments, giving businesses a second layer of protection for company data.

The HP t610 features a dual-core AMD G-series processor with integrated discrete-class AMD Radeon graphics, which at 1.65 GHz provides customers with ample power for the most rigorous remote business graphics needs. The t610 is passively cooled to help companies reduce noise in office environments, and eliminate moving parts in their end-point devices.

The AMD Accelerated Processing Unit (APU) combines a low-power CPU and a discrete-level GPU into a single integrated unit, efficiently providing high-performance multimedia content delivery and supporting DirectX11 for 3D visual effects and accelerated graphics performance.

The AMD APU allows the HP t610 series to meet the stringent requirements of ENERGY STAR thin client qualification. HP's use of more than 20 percent post-consumer recycled plastics helps the series achieve EPEAT Gold status.

To enhance reliability in a broad range of operating environments, the HP t610 includes HP Active Thermal Management, which prevents the device from shutting down due to overheating - even in the harshest of environments.

The HP t610 comes with two chassis configurations - Standard and PLUS. The PLUS configuration offers additional legacy ports, quad-head display graphics capabilities and connectivity options supporting fiber network interface cards and enterprise-class wireless.

The HP t610 supports thin client operating system software including Microsoft Windows Embedded Standard and HP ThinPro thin-client enhanced Linux. Configurations also are available that utilize HP Smart Zero Technology for zero-touch management - an HP unique capability.

The HP t510 also features the VIA Eden X2 U4200 1GHz dual-core CPU, the highest performing processor in its class. VIA Chromotion HD 2.0 graphics enable hardware acceleration of streaming multimedia for better web browsing and remote session experiences.

The HP t510 and HP t610 ship with 2 gigabytes of RAM, which doubles the minimum amount that has previously shipped on HP thin clients.

HP Easy Tools allows users to easily configure the HP t610 and HP t510 thin clients, both of which include HP's enhanced, enterprise-class remote management software, HP Device Manager.

Both the HP t510 and HPt610 allow administrators to easily simplify deployments and extend existing investments in Microsoft System Center by enabling them to manage thin clients with Windows Embedded Device Manager 2011. The newly released HP plug-in for Windows Embedded Device Manager enables customers to manage and administer a specific upgrade package or security update on the HP t510 and HPt610 and other HP Windows Embedded Standard 7-based thin clients from one convenient management tool.

"The HP t510 and t610 flexible series thin clients provide the performance and security enterprise users are looking for along with increased manageability for the system administrator", stated John Doyle, director, Product Management, Windows Embedded, Microsoft. "In particular, the plug-in for Windows Embedded Device Manager 2011 enables IT professionals to manage embedded devices in a similar manner to PCs and servers through a single integrated solution, simplifying embedded device integration and management."

The HP t610 is RemoteFX certified, and both the HP t510 and HPt610 are optimized for compatibility with top virtualization software, including Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop, Microsoft RDP 7 and VMware View.

The HP t510 Thin Client has a starting price of $259 and the HP t610 Flexible Series Thin Client has a starting price of $399. The new devices are expected to be available in March in the Asia Pacific and Japan region, and in April in the Americas and Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
