Wyse Technology today announced the Wyse Z90 thin client, the highest-performing thin client based on Windows Embedded Standard 7. It has a pretty compelling list price but is a brick.
With available dual-core AMD G-series processors, the Wyse Z90 is the Wyse’s best-performing thin client. At the heart of the Wyse Z90 lies an entirely new engine, one where all the major system elements – CPU cores, vector engines, and a unified video decoder for HD decoding tasks – live on the same piece of silicon. The Z90 list price is $499, but for clients that buy in volume, pricing generally begins in the mid-$400 range.
Paired with updated processors and engines, Wyse’s use of Windows Embedded Standard 7 delivers the power and performance of Windows 7 to offer operating protections, helping to lessen vulnerabilities caused by virus and malware. The platform comes with strong default passwords, a secure locked-down default-user profile and monthly security updates to ensure customers receive the most secure and reliable service.
The Wyse Z90 includes the first SuperSpeed USB 3.0 connectivity in a thin client, enabling the newest peripherals and speeds up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0. Wyse Z90 includes two SuperSpeed USB 3.0 ports and four USB 2.0 ports, all under your control. With Wyse Z90, users have more display options than ever before including DisplayPort and DVI.
Wyse Z90 also co-exists with legacy devices, taking them in stride with optional parallel, PS/2 and dual serial port support. Wyse Z90 also includes advanced networking capabilities, with support for gigabit Ethernet, available integrated A/B/G/N dual band Wi-Fi, or FiberNIC.
