11 Reasons For

HP Desktop Computers Have Good Reviews

On average HP medium processor core personal computers have good reviews as do all personal computers manufactured by HP.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on personal computers of a comparable type and age to it.

Chart Edit

Quite Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency

The Z230 SFF has one of the faster on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies (1,200 megahertz) amongst personal computers of this age. The average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of medium processor core personal computers that have been available for a similar time to the Z230 SFF is 1,100MHz, and the on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies range from 640MHz to 1,300MHz.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory

At 1.74 gigabytes, the HP Z230 SFF has a quite big maximum on-board graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other comparable spec computers that have been around for more than a year. PCs that were released one year ago have maximum on-board graphics adapter memories of between 1GB and 64GB.

Chart Edit

3 PCI Express Slots Version

This computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that have been around for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

L3 Processor Cache Level

This personal computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many similar spec computers that are a comparable age to it.

Chart Edit

10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology

This computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is the most commonly found cabling technology on comparable spec personal computers that have been around for a similar time to it.

Chart Edit

Two PCI Express X1 (Gen 2.x) Slots

The HP Z230 SFF is a two PCI Express x1 (Gen 2.x) slot personal computer. Most of the other computers that are a comparable age to the Z230 SFF have between one and two PCI Express x1 (Gen 2.x) slots.

Chart Edit

Has One Memory Slot

The number of memory slots found on the HP Z230 SFF is more than most medium processor core personal computers that have been around for a comparable time to it. This desktop computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most frequently found memory slot found on similar spec personal computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the Z230 SFF.

Chart Edit

GDDR Discrete Graphics Memory Type

This desktop computer supports a GDDR3 discrete graphics memory type, which is typical of many computers that have been available for more than a year.

Chart Edit

Very Short

The Z230 SFF is quite short (only 100 millimeters) compared to most of the other computers of a comparable type and age to the Z230 SFF. Computers that are a similar age to the Z230 SFF have heights of between 9.8mm and 560mm, and the average height is 300mm.

Chart Edit

5 Reasons Against

Quite Slow Max Memory Bandwidth Supported Processor

At only 25.6 gigabytes per second, the Z230 SFF has a fairly slow max memory bandwidth supported processor compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the Z230 SFF. Medium processor core personal computers that have been available for a similar time to the Z230 SFF have max memory bandwidth supported processor of between 10GB/s and 68GB/s, and the average max memory bandwidth supported processor is 30GB/s.

Chart Edit

Only HDD Storage Medium

The storage speed of this PC is HDD, which is the most frequently found storage medium on PCs that have been available for a similar time to it. 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.

If the storage speed of this personal computer is not fast enough for you then you might want to look at the HP EliteDesk 800 G2 Mini (£595.00) (SSD).

Quite Small Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory

At only 1,024 megabyte, the Z230 SFF has a very small discrete graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the Z230 SFF. Desktop computers that have been around for a similar time to the Z230 SFF have discrete graphics adapter memory of between 4.9MB and 8.2GB, and the average discrete graphics adapter memory is 3GB.

Chart Edit

Only One DisplayPort

Most computers of this spec and age have between one and three DisplayPorts, including the Z230 SFF which has one DisplayPort.

Chart Edit

Very Small Maximum Internal Memory

With a maximum internal memory of only 32,768 megabytes, the HP Z230 SFF has one of the smaller maximum internal memory amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age. The smallest maximum internal memory of medium processor core personal computers that have been available for a comparable time to the Z230 SFF is 2GB and the biggest is 790GB.
