HP Thin Client Announcements
A couple of new HP thin clients announced. Pretty zippy 755 supporting up to six video streams. And then the 655 which is the nod top PCoIP (only 3 video streams).
This would work pretty nicely for digital signage or in healthcare. Start around $550 and figure $900 for the 755.

HP Elite t755 Thin Client announced with AMD Ryzen embedded CPU and compact form factor (not released yet but expect $900)
HP has unveiled a new small-form-factor PC tailor-made for enterprise operating environments. Unlike off-the-shelf SFF PCs, the HP Elite t755 Thin Client comes with unique hardware and software features that would be of little use outside niche environments. Furthermore, it runs a custom version of Windows 10 for IoT devices. It is only 50 x 210 x 210 mm in size and can fit just about anywhere on a desk. One can purchase it on HP’s website starting in January 2024.
The HP Elite t755 Thin Client feature an AMD Ryzen V2546, a 6-core/12-thread, 35-52 W TDP Zen 2 APU designed for embedded devices. One can pair it with a default Radeon iGPU or upgrade to a Radeon RX 6300 dGPU (2 GB VRAM). The system supports up to 32 GB of DDR4 3200 memory via SODIMM slots. For storage, there are 2 M.2 slots; one can be configured with up to a 256 GB NVMe SSD and the other 512 GB.
Other HP Elite t755 Thin Client specs include Wi-Fi 6E, Bluetooth 5.3, support for up to six 4K 60 FPS simultaneous video streams, and two optional I/O slots at the back, one of which can accommodate another GPU. At the front, there’s a 1x USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-C port, 2x USB 3.2 Gen1 Type-A port, and a 3.5 mm combo jack. Rear I/O is limited to 4x DP 1.2 ports, 4x USB-A (2.0) ports and an RJ45 Ethernet jack.

t655 HP Thin Client Announcement
HP tz655 Trusted Zero Client launched with PCoIP and PCoIP Ultra support (as low as $550)
HP has announced another small-form-factor PC alongside the HP Elite t755 Thin Client. The HP tz655 Trusted Zero Client is targeted towards use in government establishments. It is somewhat limited in its hardware capabilities, but that is to be expected from this class of devices. One can purchase the HP tz655 Trusted Zero Client starting in March 2024 from HP’s website.
An AMD Ryzen™ Embedded R2314 (4-core/4-threads, max 35 W TDP) powers the HP tz655 Trusted Zero Client. One can pair it with up to 8 GB of DDR4 3200 memory and 32 GB of eMMC storage. dGPU options are unavailable, thereby restricting the number of simultaneous 4K 40 FPS video streams to three via the included DP1.2 ports.
The HP tz655 Trusted Zero Client’s lacklustre hardware is compensated by its support for PCoIP and PCoIP Ultra standards, which allows it to connect to a more powerful device. For I/O, there’s a USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-C port, 2x USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A ports and a 3.5 mm combo audio jack at the front. On the rear, there are 4x USB 2.0 Type-A ports, an RJ45 Ethernet jack and an empty slot that can be populated with an extra USB-C port.
