HP Announces the HP t820 Flexible Series Thin Client

Updated graphic server blades deliver high performance for virtualized environments

"There is new and growing demand in today's market for quad-core processing and multimedia graphics on thin clients," said Jeff Groudan, marketing director, Thin Clients, HP, as HP announced the HP t820 Flexible Series Thin Client. "With the HP t820, we've delivered a more advanced thin client solution to give companies the speed and performance required for their most demanding applications."

HP also announced support for new NVIDIA GRID graphics processing units (GPUs) for the HP WS460c Generation 8 (Gen8) Graphics Server Blade. Aimed at reducing price per user and boosting performance for graphics in virtualized environments, the HP WS460c - combined with the HP Multi-GPU Carrier, a graphics adapter card enabling up to eight users per blade - delivers a comprehensive blade server graphics portfolio.

Maximum security, powerful performance, enhanced graphics
The HP t820 Flexible Series Thin Client offers users powerful performance and graphics combined with enterprise-level security, ensuring an organization's sensitive data is secured on the server even if its devices are compromised, lost or stolen.

The HP t820 benefits organizations in industries - such as financial trading, architecture, engineering, and military or government agencies - that require high-performance computing to run specialty programs.

Enhanced features on the HP t820 include:

Powerful processing with Intel Core i5 or Intel Pentium. The HP t820 is eight times faster than the HP t610 Flexible Thin Client and can control large amounts of data and multiple applications at once, allowing employees to increase productivity by viewing information on more than one monitor.

Enterprise-level security with fiber-optic networking, Intel vPro technology, BIOS implemented to NIST guidelines and TPM Chipset. Preboot authentication and connections allow users in private industries to securely log on to their protected network.

Built-in VGA video port and DisplayPort 1.2 for enhanced functionality. Additional ports give organizations the functionality to transition to new technologies and ensure legacy and future monitor technology compatibility. The HP t820 supports three large monitors out of the box, and with an AMD Radeon HD 7650A MXM graphics card and with one or more optional multistream DisplayPort hubs, it can expand to seven high-definition (HD) monitors.

Better user experience with HP Velocity. HP Velocity network performance management software, included with the HP t820, automatically adapts to changing network conditions and improves network utilization so users experience fewer disruptions when using real-time communication applications.

Multiprotocol support for Microsoft and VMware. The HP t820 is VMware Horizon View certified and RFX certified for Microsoft Windows Embedded Standard (WES) 7 E operating systems, giving users the flexibility to deploy and manage the virtual desktop solution that best fits their needs.

New virtualized high-performance graphics solutions
HP updated the HP WS460c Gen8 Graphics Server Blade with new NVIDIA GRID GPUs optimized for virtualized environments. As the industry's first bladed technology that enables multiple virtualized graphics users per blade, the HP WS460c Gen8 server with NVIDIA GRID or Multi-GPU Carrier lowers the cost per user while delivering levels of graphics performance previously unavailable for desktop virtualization users. The NVIDIA GRID K1 and K2 GPU adapters also enable multiple media-rich PC or high-end graphics users per blade by providing graphics capability to each virtual machine.
