Performance Report – SnapVDI THIN CLIENT


While hardware and software specifications can be easily obtained for virtually all thin clients on the market today, these details fail to answer the simple question: how does this information translate into actual, real-world use? SnapVDI fields this question with performance metrics gathered from controlled, repeated benchmark testing of the SnapVDI Thin Client, as well as similar competing devices from Dell and HP. In this report you will find the hardware specifications for each device included in the testing, as well as their performance results.

Performance Report

To test endpoint performance, all three devices were placed head-to-head under identical workloads performed on a standard Knowledge User virtual machine.

The SC03150T thin client is designed to optimize its onboard resources to provide users a more consistent experience. As a result, the SC03150T is capable of handling more system operations than competing thin client devices, thus allowing more Reads and Writes per second. Users can rest assured that their SnapVDI clients can deliver greater performance than competing devices under identical workloads.

In data computation, the three primary operations reported include Integer, Floating-Point, and Hash; whereas integer operations are any mathematical operation or assignment which utilizes whole numbers, Floating-point operations which use decimals, and Hash operations which use sets of values. In all three of these categories, the SC03150T Thin Client exceeded its competitors.


In the evolving world of technologies, there was an age where simply comparing the amount of memory and other onboard hardware would give users a clear idea of the better performing unit; in the current age of virtualization, endpoint resources serve a new purpose. In this test, thin clients with similar hardware were selected to demonstrate the importance of system logic to utilize the local resources to manage and display virtualized terminals hosted remotely. As a result, the SC03150T Thin Client was able to able to load and render faster than the competing thin clients, allowing for smoother video play with less latency.


Most IT professionals are no strangers to the importance of reads, writes, and IOPS (input/output operations per second) in regards to performance. Through our tests we found that the SC03150T Thin Client held a faster onboard operating system with a faster workload performance.

Video rendering tests were also conducted between all three devices to measure video loading and playback performance. Onboard cache was disabled across all three devices to better gauge the performance differences derived from system logic alone. The SnapVDI SC03150T rendered HD 4k video faster than the Dell and HP devices, thereby providing end users with a high-quality user experience that closely resembles or even exceeds that of a
full local desktop workstation.

To validate these findings further, head-to-head tests were also run using the preferred benchmarking software employed by Dell and HP, called PassMark. As a result, the findings were accurately replicated yet again, showing the SC03150T to outperform in most categories.
