As display resolutions and screen sizes increase, hybrid computing scenarios are driving new demand for local client processing power. According to IDC, the Virtual Client Computing market expects a five- year CAGR of 7.7percent.(5)

“As more businesses move their most demanding users and apps to virtual computing, we’ve responded by combining cloud-client technology and workstation innovation in one revolutionary platform,” said Jeff Wood, vice president of product management, Workstations & Thin Clients, HP Inc. “The HP t730 Thin Client gives our customers a secure, reliable endpoint for virtual workstation use cases.”

Supporting more displays than the average desktop PC, the HP t730 natively drives four displays at the new UHD/4K resolution standard, and six displays with an optional AMD FirePro™ discrete graphics card. Multimedia is presented in eye-popping detail that translates to a staggering 8,294,400 total pixels. The AMD R-Series™ quad-core APU with Turbo Core technology accelerates CPU performance up to 3.6 GHz to run the most demanding workstation-class apps, and render high-frame rate video to connected displays.

Additional key features on the HP t730 include:

  • Integrated, essential software: Ready to deploy right out of the box with mission critical HP Thin Client management and user experience software, including HP Device Manager, HP True Graphics,(6)HP Velocity, HP Easy Shell,(7)HP Remote Graphics, andUnified Communications support.
