On average HP medium processor core personal computers have good ratings as do all desktop computers built by HP.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This desktop computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many PCs that have been around for around the same time as it.
Fairly Fast Memory Clock Speed Supported by Processor
New medium processor core personal computers have memory clock speeds supported by processors of between 800MHz and 2,200MHz. With a memory clock speed supported by processor of 2,133 megahertz, the HP 800 G2 has a fairly fast memory clock speed supported by processor compared to most of the other PCs that have been on the market for a similar time to the 800 G2.
Eight USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
The HP 800 G2 is a eight USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port computer.
Just Released Six Months Ago
As one of the newer desktop computers, this personal computer is likely to have more advanced features.
Quite Big Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
Across all the new medium processor core personal computers the maximum on-board graphics adapter memories range from 1GB to 64GB, and the average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory is 8.5GB. The HP 800 G2 has one of the bigger maximum on-board graphics adapter memories (1.74 gigabytes) amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age.
+12 More reasons for
SSD Storage Medium
The HP 800 G2 has a faster storage speed than most PCs that have been available for around the same time as it. This HP personal computer has an SSD storage medium, whereas most latest medium processor core personal computers have an HDD storage medium. Solid State Drives (SSD) store information in transistors on a circuit board rather than on optical or magnetic media. This has the advantage of being much faster than a traditional HDD drive.
An SSD storage medium is in fact the best storage speed across all latest medium processor core personal computers.
An HDD storage medium is the worst storage speed amongst comparable types of personal computer.
Fairly Big Internal Memory
Medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the 800 G2 have internal memory of between 2GB and 32GB, and the average internal memory is 7.9GB. The HP 800 G2 has a quite big internal memory (8 gigabytes) compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the 800 G2.
If you would prefer a PC with a bigger internal memory then you might want to look at the HP Z240 SFF (£988.97) (16GB).
Two PCI Express X8 (Gen 3.x) Slots
Most of the other new personal computers only have one PCI Express x8 (Gen 3.x) slot, however the HP 800 G2 has two PCI Express x8 (Gen 3.x) slots.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most commonly supported PCI Express slots version on latest medium processor core personal computers.
Quite Fast Memory Clock Speed
Across all the recently released computers the memory clock speeds range from 1,600MHz to 2,400MHz. With a memory clock speed of 2,133 megahertz, the HP 800 G2 has one of the faster memory clock speeds amongst similar spec desktop computers of this age.
DDR4-SDRAM Internal Memory Type
This computer has a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type, which is the most commonly found internal memory type on new similar spec personal computers.
The HP 800 G2 is a two DisplayPort desktop computer.
Two PCI Express X1 Slots
Most medium processor core personal computers that were launched around the same time as the 800 G2 have between one and two PCI Express x1 slots, including the HP 800 G2 which has two PCI Express x1 slots.
Supports One Case Placement
The number of placements supported by the HP 800 G2 is more than most PCs that came out in the last year. This desktop computer supports a Vertical case placement, which is the most frequently supported case placement supported by recently released desktop computers.
Has One Memory Slot
The HP 800 G2 has a greater number of memory slots than most personal computers that came out around the same time as it. This HP desktop computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most frequently found memory slot found on computers that were launched in the last 12 months.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this PC is DVD Super Multi, which is the most commonly found optical drive type on medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to it.
6 Reasons Against
Quite Small Total Storage Capacity
The smallest total storage capacity of recently released medium processor core personal computers is 32GB, the biggest is 3.3TB, and the average total storage capacity is 730GB. When compared to other medium processor core personal computers that were released around the same time as the 800 G2 that we have checked, the HP 800 G2's total storage capacity of only 128 gigabytes is one of the smallest.
If this personal computer total storage capacity is not big enough for you then you might want to look at the Lenovo E73 (180GB), or the HP 400 G2 (£603.97) (256GB).
Only Two USB 2.0 Ports
The HP 800 G2 is a two USB 2.0 port computer. Most of the other desktop computers that were launched in the last year have between one and seven USB 2.0 ports.
Quite Small Solid-State Drive Capacity
The average solid-state drive capacity of medium processor core personal computers that have been around for a similar time to the 800 G2 is 210GB. At only 128 gigabytes, the HP 800 G2 has a fairly small solid-state drive capacity compared to most of the other similar spec personal computers that were released around the same time as the 800 G2.
Quite Small Processor Cache
New PCs have processor caches of between 2MB and 10MB, and the average processor cache is 6.7MB. The HP 800 G2 has a quite small processor cache (only 6 megabytes) compared to most of the other latest medium processor core personal computers.
+3 More reasons against
Only Four Processor Threads
The HP 800 G2 is a four processor thread PC.
The HP 800 G2 is one of the heavier comparable spec personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the 800 G2 (9.4 kilograms) amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age. The lightest medium processor core desktop computer that is a comparable age to the 800 G2 is 38g heavy, the heaviest is 16kg, and the average weight is 6.4kg.
1 Other reason to consider the HP 800 G2
Average Processor Clock Speed
At 3.2 gigahertz, the HP 800 G2 has a relatively typical processor clock speed compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that came out in the last 12 months.
If this computer processor clock speed is not fast enough for you then you might also want to consider the HP 800 G1 (3.3GHz).
