12 Reasons For
HP Has Good Desktop Computer Reviews
HP has good average ratings for its medium processor core computers as well as across its entire personal computer range compared to other brands.
Just Released Five Months Ago
This HP computer has only been on the market for five months.
12 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
The HP 800 G2 supports a better on-board graphics adapter DirectX version than most new medium processor core computers. This desktop computer supports a 12 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, whereas most medium processor core computers that are a comparable age to it support an 11 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version.
This computer's on-board graphics adapter DirectX version (12) is actually the best supported on-board graphics adapter DirectX version across all medium processor core computers that have been on the market for the last year.
An 11.2/12 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version is the worst supported on-board graphics adapter DirectX version amongst similar types of computer.
Eight USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
Most of the other recently released comparable spec personal computers only have between one and seven USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports, however the HP 800 G2 has eight USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This PC supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most commonly supported processor operating mode on comparable spec desktop computers that were released in the last 12 months.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This desktop computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most commonly supported PCI Express slots version on new similar spec computers.
+7 More reasons for
Quite Fast Maximum Turbo Frequency
At 4 gigahertz, the HP 800 G2 has a fairly fast maximum turbo frequency compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that have been around for the last year. The maximum turbo frequencies of medium processor core computers that are a comparable age to the 800 G2 range from 1.8GHz to 4.2GHz.
DDR4-SDRAM Internal Memory Type
This personal computer has a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type, which is typical of many personal computers that came out around the same time as it.
Eight Processor Threads
The HP 800 G2 is a eight processor thread desktop computer.
Has One Memory Slot
The HP 800 G2 has a greater number of memory slots than most new medium processor core computers. This desktop computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most frequently found memory slot found on medium processor core computers that have been available for a comparable time to the 800 G2.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this PC is DVD Super Multi, which is the most frequently found optical drive type on similar spec PCs that were released around the same time as it.
GDDR Discrete Graphics Memory Type
This PC supports a GDDR5 discrete graphics memory type, which is the most commonly supported discrete graphics memory type on personal computers that have been around for the last year.
3 Reasons Against
Quite Slow Memory Clock Speed Supported by Processor
The HP 800 G2 has one of the slower memory clock speeds supported by processors (only 1,333 megahertz) amongst desktop computers of this age. Comparable spec PCs that were released around the same time as the 800 G2 have memory clock speeds supported by processors of between 800MHz and 2,200MHz.
Only 10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Rate
This desktop computer supports a 10|100|1000 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN data rate, which is typical of many similar spec PCs that came out in the last 12 months.
The weights of similar spec personal computers that came out in the last year range from 38g to 23kg. The HP 800 G2 is quite heavy (9.4 kilograms) compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that were released around the same time as the 800 G2.
2 Other reasons to consider the HP 800 G2
Average Processor Clock Speed
At 3.4 gigahertz, the HP 800 G2 has a relatively typical processor clock speed compared to most of the other new medium processor core computers.
There are a number of other 3.4GHz processor clock speed PCs currently available that you might also want to consider including cheaper computers such as the HP Z240 (£728.23).
Average Internal Memory
At 8 gigabytes, the HP 800 G2 has a fairly average internal memory compared to most of the other new computers.
We compared this personal computer to all the other 8GB memory PCs and we think cheaper personal computers such as the DELL T3420 (£691.98), and the HP Z240 (£728.23) is also worth considering.
If you are looking for a personal computer with a bigger internal memory then you might also want to consider the HP 750-274na (£834.97) (16GB).
