Wyse leverages AMD's embedded solutions to provide next generation thin-client platforms.
Wyse Technology, domain experts in server-centric computing computing - computer (SCC SCC - strongly connected component ), announced today at the Citrix iForum conference that the company has selected the AMD (Advanced Micro Devices, Inc., Sunnyvale, CA, www.amd.com) A major manufacturer of semiconductor devices including x86-compatible CPUs, embedded processors, flash memories, programmable logic devices and networking chips.

The collaboration Working together on a project. See collaborative software. with AMD allows Wyse to offer performance improvements at lower power in its latest compact and streamlined family of thin-client designs.
The AMD Geode GX processor family is designed to provide the ideal combination of low power consumption, excellent performance and small size. The application flexibility provided by the Geode processor's integrated x86 architecture The generic term x86 refers to the "CISC" type instruction set of the most commercially successful CPU architecture in the history of personal computing, used in processors from Intel, AMD, VIA, and others. and compact size helps facilitate the extremely small form factor in Wyse's S class devices.
"We are pleased to extend our strategic relationship with AMD to drive continued thin-client design and performance improvements," said Mike DeNeffe, senior director of the Wyse Winterm line. "With a history of innovation and a set of optimized processing capabilities, AMD is delivering a strong value proposition into our latest designs."

"Wyse's new S class of Winterm thin-client solutions demonstrates the full capabilities of the high-performance, low-power AMD Geode GX product family," said Erik Salo, AMD's director of marketing for the Personal Connectivity Solutions Group. "The Wyse development team was able to leverage the Geode processor's performance capabilities to create a new line of thin-client solutions that support greater functionality without compromising performance."
AMD sees potential in the x86 architecture becoming a viable solution for nearly every device category, extending from low-power consumer electronics through high-end enterprise servers. The inherent, seamless integration An addition of a new application, routine or device that works smoothly with the existing system. It implies that the new feature or program can be installed and used without problems. Contrast with "transparent," which implies that there is no discernible change after installation. and ability to run existing applications of a universal, x86 architecture has tremendous benefits for hardware and software developers, and provides new opportunities for growth by giving end-users easier access to powerful technologies.
