thin client use hosts processing power

 Share

i was thinking about getting a couple of thin client pc's but was concerned about there prossecing power 

the one im looking at a hp T5135 with VIA Eden 400 MHz and 128mb ddr sdram cause i want to use this like a desktop and maybe play games 

processing power is a concern so i was wondering if the client did all its processing from the host ?

How are you setting up the thin client? What is the host setup?

 

These thin clients are often locket to one enviroment(citrix, horizon) and you need a expensive server setup to use it.

 

The client cpu won't be used at all, its all on the host.

The thing is that thin clients were never designed for gaming purposes or for any purpose where extremely low latency is a must. Plus those things were designed to be used with Windows Server 2000/2003, etc. Doubt you can get it to work with anything modern.

problem is not all thin clients work with all servers, and most don't seem to work with win server.

 

Looking around you seem to need citrix here, and that won't be cheap
