Transmeta Corporation (Nasdaq:TMTA), the leader in efficient computing, today
announced that its high performance and energy efficient Transmeta Efficeon(TM)
TM8600 processor has been incorporated in the new HP Compaq t5710 Thin Client.
The t5710 is the first thin client with the high performance Efficeon processor.
This design win strengthens Transmeta's presence in the fast growing thin client
market and raises the standard of performance in the thin client segment.
A thin client is a network computer without a hard disk that provides lower
ownership costs and offers improved manageability for businesses. The HP t5710,
powered by the 1.1GHz Efficeon TM8600 processor, offers high performance for
users requiring a powerful and flexible thin client. The Efficeon TM8600 is
ideally suited for use in thin clients as it combines the performance needed to
handle today's demanding applications and an energy efficient design that allows
for a small, quiet and fanless form factor.
The Efficeon-powered HP t5710 thin client is the newest device in the t5000
series, which historically had exclusively used Transmeta Crusoe(R) processors.
Providing businesses a compelling value based on their affordability, ease of
use and simple manageability, HP thin clients are ideal for medical, financial
services, government and other businesses where access to centralized
applications in a desktop-like experience is desired.
"Transmeta is pleased that the high performance of Efficeon is now available
in an innovative new thin client from HP," said Arthur L. Swift, senior vice
president of marketing at Transmeta. "This product availability expands
Transmeta's position in the thin client market and shows continued support from
HP with their entire t5000 thin client line based upon Transmeta processors."
"The impressive performance per watt afforded by Transmeta processors helps
HP deliver an unbeatable combination of price and performance to our customers,"
said Tad Bodeman, director, thin client product marketing at HP. "The Efficeon
processor-powered HP t5710 extends the boundaries of thin client computing,
delivering new levels of end user experience and positioning customers to take
advantage of new blade PC computing models."
