Comparable spec personal computers that have been available for more than two years have max internal memory supported processors of between 64GB and 770GB, and the average max internal memory supported processor is 630GB. With a max internal memory supported processor of 768 gigabytes, the HP Z640 has one of the bigger max internal memory supported processors amongst comparable spec computers of this age.

Chart Edit

Quite Fast Memory Clock Speed Supported by Processor

The memory clock speeds supported by processors of comparable spec computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Z640 range from 800MHz to 1,600MHz, and the average memory clock speed supported by processor is 1,100MHz. The HP Z640 has a quite fast memory clock speed supported by processor (1,600 megahertz) compared to most of the other many processor core personal computers that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Very High System Bus Data Transfer Rate

Personal computers that are a similar age to the Z640 have system bus data transfer rates of between 5GT/s and 9.6GT/s, and the average system bus data transfer rate is 8GT/s. The HP Z640 has a quite high system bus data transfer rate (9.6 Gigatransfers per second) compared to most of the other desktop computers of this age and spec.

Chart Edit

Fairly Fast Memory Clock Speed

The slowest memory clock speed of PCs of this age and spec is 1,300MHz and the fastest is 2,200MHz. At 2,133 megahertz, the HP Z640 has a fairly fast memory clock speed compared to most of the other similar spec personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Z640.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Maximum Internal Memory

Across all the PCs of this type and age the maximum internal memory range from 32GB to 520GB. With a maximum internal memory of 256 gigabytes, the HP Z640 has one of the bigger maximum internal memory amongst many processor core personal computers of this age.

Chart Edit

DDR4-SDRAM Internal Memory Type

The HP Z640 has a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type which is newer than most desktop computers of a similar age and spec to it. Most computers of this type and age have a DDR3-SDRAM internal memory type.

A DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type is actually the best internal memory type amongst all PCs of a similar spec and age to the Z640.

The worst internal memory type amongst comparable types of desktop computer is DDR3-SDRAM.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Processor Cache

The processor caches of desktop computers that are a similar age to the Z640 range from 12MB to 30MB, and the average processor cache is 20MB. The HP Z640 has one of the bigger processor caches (25 megabytes) amongst many processor core personal computers of this age.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Solid-State Drive Capacity

When compared to other desktop computers of a similar age and type to the Z640 that we have assessed the solid-state drive capacity of, the HP Z640's solid-state drive capacity of 512 gigabytes is one of the biggest. The smallest solid-state drive capacity of comparable spec PCs that have been on the market for a similar time to the Z640 is 120GB and the biggest is 1TB.

Chart Edit

DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type

The optical drive type of this desktop computer is DVD Super Multi, which is the most commonly found optical drive type on computers of a comparable age and spec to it.

Chart Edit

4 Reasons Against

Quite Slow Processor Clock Speed

The HP Z640 has one of the slower processor clock speeds (only 2.3 gigahertz) amongst many processor core personal computers of this age. The average processor clock speed of PCs that have been available for more than two years is 2.9GHz.

If this personal computer processor clock speed is too slow for you then you might want to look at the Lenovo P900 (£1,797.83) (2.4GHz).

4 Other reasons to consider the HP Z640

Released Over Two Years Ago

This personal computer has been on the market for over two years.

Average Internal Memory

At 16 gigabytes, the HP Z640 has a pretty standard internal memory compared to most of the other many processor core personal computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the Z640.

Chart Edit

SSD Storage Medium

The storage speed of this personal computer is SSD, which is the most frequently found storage medium on many processor core personal computers that have been around for more than two years. 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.

Chart Edit

Average Total Storage Capacity

At 512 gigabytes, the HP Z640 has a relatively average total storage capacity compared to most of the other comparable spec PCs that were released around the same time as the Z640.
