The CPUs in this device are mostly for protocol decoding and housekeeping. Everything else is done with very sophisticated HW accelerators. The actual computing is done in the server. Depending on the server we can reach a very large number of users (hundreds using VMs) but to give an idea a simple Sandy Bridge quad core can run 30+ users.

See the answer I gave above. HW accelerators are the answer. Consider that running 3 clients with multimedia at 1080P is a lot of work for any CPU. Thanks Gabriele Sartori Sr.VP Hardware Products - Ncomputing

Our server side SW called Vspace and our protocols are available also for Linux. There are many other free methods for connecting Linux to a thin client but the problems are performance & bandwidth. With the UXP protocol we solved those problems Thanks Gabriele Sartori Sr.VP Hardware Products - Ncomputing

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
