A few weeks ago we unveiled the “7 gamers 1 CPU” computer, and while we ran some benchmarks, many viewers weren’t satisfied. Today, we fix that.

Windows 10 personal computer on the Raspberry Pi: NComputing comes out $99 RX300 Computer
Official introduction: https://www.ncomputing.com/en/products/rxseries
The RX300 thin client will be available to firms from the end of this month.
A thin client is a light-weight computer that is purpose-built for remoting into a server (normally cloud or desktop virtualization environments). It relies significantly on another computer (its server) in order to meet its computational roles. This is not the same as a typical desktop PC (fat client), which is a PC which is designed to complete these jobs without help. The specific roles assumed by the server can vary greatly, from hosting a shared group of virtualized applications, a shared desktop stack or virtual desktop, to data processing and file storage on the client’s or user’s behalf.
NComputing has introduced a Windows thin client built on the $35, credit card-sized Raspberry Pi 3 Model B.
The RX300 thin client provides you with use of several different Windows desktops, for instance, Windows 10, which can be streamed from a central machine by NComputing’s vSpace Pro 10 desktop virtualization program.
The software allows firms to provision a centrally managed Windows desktop to hundreds of RX300 clients.
NComputing expresses its vCAST streaming technology makes it possible for full-screen playback of 1080p FHD local or online video on the clients, without the demand for the central servers to have a first-rate graphics processing unit. But, subscription to this vCast technology is only provided for 6 months after purchasing the RX300.
Each thin client has four USB v 2.0 ports, with full USB redirection and server-side device drivers to render support for a huge selection of peripherals.
The $99 RX300, which is directed at schools and small middle enterprises, can be run as a thin client to access a virtual Windows desktop computer or as a local Raspberry Pi Computer, running the Pi’s official Linux-based Raspbian Operating system.
NComputing states that the thin clients are designed to be very simple to set up and receive updates from vSpace Pro 10 servers robotically.
Young Song, NComputing chief executive officer, explained he opted to base the client upon the Raspberry Pi 3 as a result of board’s cost-effectiveness and flexibility.
Every single RX300 arrives along with a free 1 year connection license to vSpace Pro 10, with each subsequent year priced at $49 for each user.
NComputing’s vSpace Pro 10 has the ability to stream a Windows desktop to a single client from Windows 7, 8.1 or 10 or even Windows Server. To stream a desktop to multiple clients, vSpace Pro 10 is required to be running on Windows Server 2016, Windows Server 2012 R2 U1, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1, Windows Multipoint Server 2011 or Windows Multipoint Server 2012-the corporation will also need to pay money for the correct Microsoft client access licenses.
The NComputing RX300 series will be obtainable around the world in late February through merchants.
The RX300 is not the very first thin client to be released on top of the best-selling Raspberry Pi. Not too long ago Citrix and ViewSonic introduced the $119.99 SC-T25 Raspberry Pi 3 Thin Client.
