VIA Eden One Watt Processor Brings Power-Efficiency to Fujitsu Thin Clients

500MHz-VIA-Eden-ULV-Embedded-Processor,-aka--the-1-watt-processorVIA Technologies, Inc, a leading innovator of power efficient x86 processor platforms, today announced the adoption of its VIA Eden processor in the latest FUTRO thin client series from Fujitsu. The 500MHz VIA Eden ULV processor, with its remarkably low TDP of only one watt, powers the Fujitsu FUTRO S100, an entirely fanless and silent thin client and virtual workplace solution.

With a dramatically lower TCO, a reduced environmental footprint and a radically improved security infrastructure, it’s no surprise to see thin client adoption continue to expand, particularly in enterprise and commercial corporate segments. Fujitsu’s new range of FUTRO thin client products bring these benefits into sharper focus, with the FUTRO S100 thin client consuming less than eleven watts for the complete system under full load.
