HP medium processor core computers have good ratings on average and across all desktop computers HP is one of the better rated brands.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This personal computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on medium processor core computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to it.
Fairly Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
The on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies of computers of a comparable spec and age to the Z230 range from 850MHz to 1,300MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency is 1,200MHz. With an on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of 1,200 megahertz, the HP Z230 has a quite fast on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other computers of a comparable age and type to the Z230.
Fairly Big Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
Across all the comparable spec desktop computers that have been available for around the same time as the Z230 the maximum on-board graphics adapter memories range from 1GB to 1.8GB, and the average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory is 1.5GB. At 1.74 gigabytes, the HP Z230 has a quite big maximum on-board graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the Z230.
11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This PC supports a 11.2 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is the most commonly supported on-board graphics adapter DirectX version on medium processor core computers that have been available for around the same time as it.
Fairly Big Internal Memory
With an internal memory of 16 gigabytes, the HP Z230 has one of the bigger internal memory amongst medium processor core computers of this age. The average internal memory of PCs of a similar age and type to the Z230 is 8GB, and the internal memory range from 2GB to 64GB.
+10 More reasons for
SSD Storage Medium
The HP Z230 has a faster storage speed than most personal computers that came out more than two years ago. This desktop computer has an SSD storage medium, whereas most similar spec computers that are a comparable age to it 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 amongst all desktop computers of a similar age and type to the Z230.
An HDD storage medium is the worst storage speed across comparable types of computer.
There are a number of alternative SSD desktop computers currently available that you might also want to consider including because of it's better review score, the Zotac ZBOX CA320 nano.
If the storage speed of this medium processor core computer is not fast enough for you then you might want to consider the Apple Mac Pro (£2,289.06) (Flash).
L3 Processor Cache Level
This personal computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many desktop computers that came out around the same time as it.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This personal computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many PCs that have been around for around the same time as it.
Very Big Solid-State Drive Capacity
Comparable spec personal computers that have been around for a similar time to the Z230 have solid-state drive capacities of between 16GB and 520GB. The HP Z230 has one of the biggest solid-state drive capacities (512 gigabytes) amongst medium processor core computers of this age.
Six USB 2.0 Ports
The HP Z230 is a six USB 2.0 port personal computer.
Two 5.25" Bays
Most desktop computers of this age and type have between one and two 5.25" bays, including the HP Z230 which has two 5.25" bays.
Fairly Big Processor Cache
At 8 megabytes, the HP Z230 has a quite big processor cache compared to most of the other desktop computers of this type and age. The processor caches of PCs of this type and age range from 0.51MB to 10MB.
Has One Memory Slot
The HP Z230 has a greater number of memory slots than most personal computers of this age and spec. This desktop computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most commonly found memory slot found on desktop computers of a comparable age and spec to the Z230.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this computer is DVD Super Multi, which is typical of many desktop computers of this age and type.
3 Reasons Against
Only One PCI Express X1 (Gen 2.x) Slot
Most similar spec computers that have been available for around the same time as the Z230 have between one and two PCI Express x1 (Gen 2.x) slots, including the HP Z230 which has one PCI Express x1 (Gen 2.x) slot.
Only Four Processor Threads
The HP Z230 is a four processor thread desktop computer. Most of the other medium processor core computers that have been available for more than two years have between four and seven processor threads.
Only Two 3.5" Bays
The HP Z230 is a two 3.5" bay desktop computer. Most of the other medium processor core computers that were released around the same time as the Z230 have between one and eight 3.5" bays.
3 Other reasons to consider the HP Z230
Released Over Two Years Ago
This HP personal computer has been on the market for over two years.
Average Processor Clock Speed
The HP Z230 has a pretty average processor clock speed (3.3 gigahertz) compared to most of the other desktop computers that have been around for around the same time as the Z230.
Average Total Storage Capacity
At 512 gigabytes, the HP Z230 has a pretty typical total storage capacity compared to most of the other personal computers of a similar type and age to the Z230.
If this medium processor core computer total storage capacity is not big enough for you then you might also want to look at the HP Z640 (1TB), or the Alienware X51 (£1,309.44) (1TB).
