The NComputing MX-series is our latest 3-user thin client kit that changes the game for affordable and green computing. It is a desktop virtualization solution comprising of vSpace Server software and MX-series thin client access devices.
The MX-series rewrites new affordability standards in shared computing by slashing as much as 65% in acquisition cost, 80% in maintenance cost and 90% in energy cost when compared to an all PC-based solution. Made possible by the MX-series’ simplicity, high performance, manageability, security and low cost.
The MX-series combines the best features of NComputing’s widely popular M-series and X-series with the support of a LAN-based or direct connection-based virtual desktop deployment, with enhanced multimedia performance, superior graphics and support for the Gigabit network.
The green advantage of MX100 helps organizations pursue their missions, with effective IT solutions, while at the same lessening their environmental impact.

How many users can each MX100 kit support?
What’s versions of vSpace Server software support the MX100?
What’s the difference between the MX100D and the MX100S?
The MX100S Standard Edition uses a standard Local Area Network to communicate with a vSpace Server. It is designed for use with an existing Local Area Network infrastructure, enabling the MX100 access devices to be located anywhere on the LAN, giving the option to use the devices at much greater distances from the vSpace Server host computer when compared to the MX100D Direct Connect Edition. The MX100S Standard Edition kit can also be used in conjunction with a MX100D Direct Connection Edition to add support for an additional 3-users to the MX100D.
How many MX100D users can be supported by a single vSpace Server host computer?
Each MX100D Direct Connection Edition kit requires an available PCIe x1 slot in the vSpace Server host computer. The MX100D is a 3-user kit that can support up to 9-users by purchasing additional MX100S Standard Edition kits. Each MX100S kit will support up an additional 3-users. A maximum of two MX100S kits can be used with each MX100D for a maximum of 9-users.
For general office productivity computing needs, NComputing recommends 1GHz of CPU performance and 2GB DRAM for each user. Using these parameters, a single quad-core CPU clocked at 3.0GHz with 24GB DRAM can support up to 12 users and provide sufficient headroom to support a MX100D configured to support 9-users.
How many MX100S users can be supported by a single vSpace Server host computer?
For general office productivity computing needs, NComputing recommends 1GHz of CPU performance and 2GB DRAM for each user. Using these parameters, a single quad-core CPU clocked at 3.0GHz with 24GB DRAM can support up to 12 users.
Why isn’t there a power adapter included with the MX100D Direct Connect Editions?
The MX100-PCIe card that is included with each MX100D Direct Connect Edition kit provides power to the MX100 devices. It is important to ensure that the host computers PCIe slot and power supply can provide a minimum of 30W.
