9 Reasons For

HP Has Good Reviews for Its Personal Computers

On average HP many processor core personal computers have good reviews compared to other brands as do all PCs manufactured by HP.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This PC supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many many processor core personal computers that were released around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Eight USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports

Most of the other personal computers that have been on the market for the last year only have between two and seven USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports, however the HP Z640 has eight USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.

Chart Edit

Just Released Eight Months Ago

The Z640 was only relased by HP eight months ago.

SSD Storage Medium

The storage speed of this personal computer is SSD, which is typical of many many processor core personal computers that have been around for around the same time as it. 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.

We compared all the other SSD desktop computers to this computer and we think cheaper desktop computers such as the HP Z440[plb_3194686_price] is also worth considering.

Fairly High System Bus Data Transfer Rate

The system bus data transfer rates of many processor core personal computers that have been around for a comparable time to the Z640 range from 6.4GT/s to 9.6GT/s. With a system bus data transfer rate of 9.6 Gigatransfers per second, the HP Z640 has a quite high system bus data transfer rate compared to most of the other new personal computers.

Chart Edit

DDR4-SDRAM Internal Memory Type

This computer has a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type, which is the most frequently found internal memory type on comparable spec personal computers that were released around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Blu-Ray RW Optical Drive Type

The HP Z640 has a better optical drive type than most comparable spec personal computers that have been available for the last year. This desktop computer has a Blu-Ray RW optical drive type, whereas most comparable spec personal computers that have been available for a similar time to it have a Blu-Ray DVD Combo optical drive type. Across all latest comparable spec PCs the worst optical drive type is DVD+RW and the best is Blu-Ray DVD Combo.

Chart Edit

Has One Memory Slot

The number of memory slots found on the HP Z640 is more than most new many processor core personal computers. This desktop computer has an 8x DIMM memory slot, which is the most commonly found memory slot found on new many processor core personal computers.

Chart Edit

4 Reasons Against

Quite Small Total Storage Capacity

Latest many processor core personal computers have total storage capacity of between 250GB and 2.2TB. When compared to other latest many processor core personal computers, the total storage capacity of the HP Z640 of only 256 gigabytes is one of the smallest.

If this PC total storage capacity is too small for you then you might want to look at the DELL Precision T7810[plb_3704050_price] (2TB and cheaper).

Read more Less Chart Edit

Only Two USB 2.0 Ports

The HP Z640 is a two USB 2.0 port desktop computer.

Chart Edit

Only Two 3.5" Bays

The HP Z640 is a two 3.5" bay desktop computer. Most of the other computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the Z640 have between two and three 3.5" bays.

Chart Edit

Very Slow Maximum Turbo Frequency

The average maximum turbo frequency of PCs that were launched in the last year is 3.4GHz, and the maximum turbo frequencies range from 2.8GHz to 4GHz. At only 3 gigahertz, the HP Z640 has a fairly slow maximum turbo frequency compared to most of the other similar spec PCs that are a comparable age to the Z640.

Chart Edit

2 Other reasons to consider the HP Z640

Average Internal Memory

With an internal memory of 16 gigabytes, the HP Z640 has a fairly typical internal memory compared to most of the other latest many processor core personal computers.

We compared this desktop computer to all the other 16GB memory computers and we think cheaper desktop computers such as the 840[pl_3096344_price], and the Z440[pl_3194686_price] both from HP is also worth considering.

If this computer internal memory is not big enough for you then you might also want to consider the DELL Precision T7810[plb_3704050_price] (64GB) which is also cheaper.

Average Processor Clock Speed

At 2.3 gigahertz, the HP Z640 has a pretty standard processor clock speed compared to most of the other comparable spec computers that came out around the same time as the Z640.
