Wyse 5060 (N07D): Hardware 


 


 

 



Wyse 5060 (N07D)

Wyse 5060 (N07D) label
The Wyse 5060 was launched in November/December 2016. My example has a manufacturing date of March 2017.

Whilst the sales literature is all about the Dell Wyse 5060 my 5060 is physically identified as a N07D. There is no mention of '5060' on either side of the label.

It soon became clear to me that the 5060 is just an evolution of the Wyse D Class thin clients. The case size is identical, and looking at the specifications section in the User Manual I find the entry "Chassis Leveraged: Dell Wyse 5020 (Oberon)". (A strange comment. Something you'd expect in an internal design document rather than in a public document).

When I removed the side panel I could see that the motherboard was just a reworked version of the one in the 5020 (Dx0Q). Basically the same board with a few small alterations. One obvious change was that the WLAN socket had switched from mPCIe to M.2.

Power Supply

No power supply came with this so I used a 19V 3.42A Delta Electronics PSU. As always note the 19V rating. If, like me, you have a number of PSUs and thin clients floating around you need to mark this PSU clearly in some way. I'm sure that those which run from 12V - which is most of them - would not take too kindly to 19V. The coax plug is 5.5mm/2.5mm.

Power Consumption

The figures given in the table above are from my observations from when the system starts up with my standard USB keyboard and mouse plugged in.

Adam provided me with some additional details:

  • Typing an email: 9W-12W
  • Adding a 1TB hard drive - 15W - 18W
  • Streaming a Video - 12W-20W
  • Varied use - 7.5W - 24.5W

Getting Inside

This is fairly straightforward. You need to remove the foot (if fitted) and then the three screws on the back panel. The plastic side cover then slides back a short way can be lifted off. This reveals a metal shield that is dealt with in a similar fashion. This time there are screws in each corner to be removed and a final one in the centre of the edge by the front panel. Once again this panel is slid a short distance towards the rear before it can be lifted clear. (There are three metal lugs each side that locate in small slots in the metal chassis that lock it in place). The speaker is fixed to this panel and will need to be disconnected from the board near to the SODIMM.

CPU

The GX-424CC is an AMD 64-bit Quad core CPU clocked at 2.4GHz.

Expansion

Click on the photo for a larger version.

Flash: The flash is a small horizontal SATA DOM. The board is also tracked for a separate SATA data connector that is not fitted to my example.

Wyse 5060 RAM sockets
RAM: The RAM is a 204-pin DDR3L SODIMM that is covered with a metal shield. Its location can be seen bottom-left in the photograph above. The SODIMM fitted in my example is a Kingston part labelled 4GB 1Rx8 PC3L-12800S-11-12-B3. There are two RAM sockets, one above the other.

I tried out an 8GB PC3L SK Hynix part (HMT41GS6BFR8A-PB NO AA). This worked.

As with the Dx0Q the lower RAM socket is a little awkward to use. I haven't tried it with this unit but I assume it's just a matter of removing the front panel as described in the Dx0Q entry.

Wyse 5060 WLAN socket
M.2: There is a M.2 socket behind the SATA socket for the addition of a WLAN card. The User Manual mentions:
WLAN+BT Combo Module: Intel 7265 M.22230 (PCIe/USB interface)

As with the Dx0D I haven't taken the motherboard out of the housing, but I did notice whilst peering in through the ventilation slots, a push switch mounted on the rear of the board. marked 'BIOS Recovery'.
