The attention to various thin clients is like ocean waves: one day it´s strong, another it´s very weak. Nevertheless, TUL decided to enter this market segment with a whole line of solutions:
The idea of these products is simple. A thin client doesn´t have a hard drive (one model is even stripped of an optical drive). The OS and applications are loaded from a LAN server, which also keeps user data.
Such solutions might come in handy in large enterprises with lots of PC users that need good information security. TUL offers its new products for about $200 depending on configuration.
You plug in power, LAN, mouse, keyboard and monitor and, voila, you have a workplace based on TUL TC3500:
If you still need an optical drive and a PCI slot, you can use this "thicker" thin client:
We continue our virtual visit of CeBit 2005. Passing by DFI´s booth at the moment.
The first attractive exhibit is a desktop Intel 855GME-based motherboard for Intel Pentium M:
Pity, but there are only a few such products in the market and the price of Pentium M automatically makes the solution very expensive. Nevertheless, it´s available for everyone.
The next one is DFI LANParty NF4 SLI-D:
As you can see, the board bases on NVIDIA nForce4 SLI and features:
Actually, such a rich feature set is natural for LANParty series. But the ThermalTake´s cooler doesn´t belong to the board package.
DFI also showcased i925XE-based motherboard on which a Pentium 4 processor was overclocked to 4,650MHz with water cooling. Sounds like fun!
Some interesting news from XGI´s booth at CeBit 2005 this time.
It´s XG47 pilot sample claimed to perform on the level of ATI RADEON X300 at the price 10% lower than NVIDIA´s/ATI´s 64-bit cards. Even 32MB 32-bit models are possible!
Alexander Vorobiev sent us photos form NVIDIA´s booth at CeBit 2005.
GeForce 6600 (PCI-E) with lower heat dissipation cooled only by a heatsink.
GeForce 6800Ultra (PCI-E) with 512 MB GDDR3. We have heard about such products before, but this time we caught this card alive. Such solutions are also made by Gainward and XFX.
Of course, NVIDIA showcased its nForce4 Intel Edition chipset (in ASUSTeK´s motherboard):
