Customers using the gt7725 or xw2x220c also can use preinstalled HP Remote Graphics software, a network utility designed to take full advantage of the compute and graphics resources of the HP thin client and blade workstation. The software enables professional artists, financial analysts, engineers and designers to work closely with remote teams in a more secure, collaborative environment and eliminates the need to upgrade to an expensive 3D graphics card on each user’s machine.
HP Remote Graphics software works seamlessly over a standard computer network with complex applications, including 2D design, 3D solid modeling, rendering, simulation full motion video, heavy flash animation, intense Web 2.0 pages and USB peripheral support.

(1) This system requires a separately purchased 64-bit operating system and 64-bit software products to take advantage of the 64-bit processing capabilities of AMD technology. Dual-core processing available with AMD technology is designed to improve performance of this system. Given the wide range of software applications available, performance of a system including a 64-bit operating system and a dual-core processor will vary.
(2) 64-bit computing on Intel architecture requires a computer system with a processor, chipset, BIOS, operating system, device drivers and applications enabled for Intel 64 architecture. Processors will not operate (including 32-bit operation) without an Intel 64 architecture-enabled BIOS. Performance will vary depending on hardware and software configurations.
