64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This desktop computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on computers that were released around the same time as it.
Quite Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
With an on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of 1,200 megahertz, the Z230 SFF has a fairly fast on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other PCs of this age and type. The slowest on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of similar spec personal computers that were released more than two years ago is 850MHz and the fastest is 1,300MHz.
Fairly Big Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
The average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of computers of this age and type is 1.5GB. At 1.74 gigabytes, the HP Z230 SFF has a fairly big maximum on-board graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other personal computers that were released around the same time as the Z230 SFF.
11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This desktop computer supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is the most frequently supported on-board graphics adapter DirectX version on desktop computers of a comparable spec and age to it.
Fairly Big Total Storage Capacity
The average total storage capacity of desktop computers of this age and spec is 720GB, and the total storage capacity range from 32GB to 2.3TB. The Z230 SFF has a quite big total storage capacity (1,000 gigabyte) compared to most of the other personal computers of this spec and age.
+10 More reasons for
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This PC supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many computers of a comparable age and type to it.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This PC has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most commonly found processor cache level on computers of a comparable age and type to it.
Six USB 2.0 Ports
Most personal computers that have been available for a similar time to the Z230 SFF have between two and nine USB 2.0 ports, including the Z230 SFF which has six USB 2.0 ports.
Two PCI Express X1 (Gen 2.x) Slots
The Z230 SFF is a two PCI Express x1 (Gen 2.x) slot desktop computer. Most of the other computers of this type and age have between one and two PCI Express x1 (Gen 2.x) slots.
Eight Processor Threads
The HP Z230 SFF is a eight processor thread computer. Most of the other medium processor core computers that are a comparable age to the Z230 SFF only have between four and seven processor threads.
Fairly Fast Maximum Turbo Frequency
The slowest maximum turbo frequency of medium processor core computers that are a similar age to the Z230 SFF is 1.3GHz, the fastest is 4.4GHz, and the average maximum turbo frequency is 3.6GHz. With a maximum turbo frequency of 3.9 gigahertz, the Z230 SFF has one of the faster maximum turbo frequencies amongst computers of this age.
Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the Z230 SFF is more than most personal computers that are a comparable age to it. This desktop computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most commonly found memory slot found on medium processor core computers that came out more than two years ago.
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 have been around for more than two years.
With a height of only 100 millimeters, the Z230 SFF is fairly short compared to most of the other computers that have been available for around the same time as the Z230 SFF. The heights of medium processor core computers that were released more than two years ago range from 19mm to 560mm, and the average height is 280mm.
1 Reason Against
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this PC is HDD, which is the most frequently found storage medium on computers that have been available for more than two years. A Hard Disk Drive (HDD) is the traditional storage method for computers. A HDD stores the information on magnetic disks. HDD drives are cheap, but they are slower than Flash and SSD bases storage systems.
Computers with a faster storage speed that might be worth looking at include the Zotac ZBOX CA320 nano (SSD) which also has a higher rating.
4 Other reasons to consider the HP Z230 SFF
Released Over Two Years Ago
