13 Reasons For

Good Brand

On average HP many processor core personal computers have good ratings compared to other manufacturers as do all computers built by HP.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This desktop computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most commonly supported processor operating mode on computers of this type and age.

Chart Edit

Two CPUs Configuration (max)

The HP Z640 takes more CPUs configuration (max) than most of the many processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the Z640. Most of the many processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the Z640 only take one CPU configuration (max), however this personal computer takes two CPUs configuration (max).

Chart Edit

Fairly Fast Max Memory Bandwidth Supported Processor

The HP Z640 has a fairly fast max memory bandwidth supported processor (68 gigabytes per second) compared to most of the other personal computers of this age and type. The slowest max memory bandwidth supported processor of computers that were released more than two years ago is 32GB/s, the fastest is 68GB/s, and the average max memory bandwidth supported processor is 60GB/s.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Max Internal Memory Supported Processor

The HP Z640 has a fairly big max internal memory supported processor (768 gigabytes) compared to most of the other PCs of this type and age. The smallest max internal memory supported processor of desktop computers that are a similar age to the Z640 is 64GB and the biggest is 770GB.

Chart Edit

Fairly Fast Memory Clock Speed Supported by Processor

Comparable spec desktop computers that are a similar age to the Z640 have memory clock speeds supported by processors of between 800MHz and 1,600MHz, and the average memory clock speed supported by processor is 1,100MHz. At 1,600 megahertz, the HP Z640 has a quite fast memory clock speed supported by processor compared to most of the other many processor core personal computers that have been around for a comparable time to the Z640.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Internal Memory

The average internal memory of similar spec PCs that were launched around the same time as the Z640 is 22GB, and the internal memory range from 4GB to 64GB. The HP Z640 has one of the bigger internal memory (32 gigabytes) amongst many processor core personal computers of this age.

Chart Edit

Fairly High System Bus Data Transfer Rate

The HP Z640 has a quite high system bus data transfer rate (9.6 Gigatransfers per second) compared to most of the other many processor core personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the Z640. The average system bus data transfer rate of many processor core personal computers that have been around for a comparable time to the Z640 is 8GT/s, and the system bus data transfer rates range from 5GT/s to 9.6GT/s.

Chart Edit

DDR4-SDRAM Internal Memory Type

The HP Z640 has a newer internal memory type than most many processor core personal computers that were launched around the same time as it. This PC has a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type, whereas most many processor core personal computers that were released more than two years ago have a DDR3-SDRAM internal memory type.

This computer's internal memory type (DDR4-SDRAM) is in fact the best internal memory type amongst all many processor core personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the Z640.

Amongst similar types of computer the worst internal memory type is DDR3-SDRAM.

20 Processor Threads

Most comparable spec computers that have been around for more than two years have between 6 and 23 processor threads, including the HP Z640 which has 20 processor threads.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Processor Cache

The HP Z640 has a fairly big processor cache (25 megabytes) compared to most of the other similar spec desktop computers that were launched more than two years ago. Across all the many processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the Z640 the processor caches range from 12MB to 30MB, and the average processor cache is 20MB.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Solid-State Drive Capacity

At 512 gigabytes, the HP Z640 has a quite big solid-state drive capacity compared to most of the other computers of this spec and age. Many processor core personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the Z640 have solid-state drive capacities of between 120GB and 1TB.

Chart Edit

Blu-Ray RW Optical Drive Type

The HP Z640 has a Blu-Ray RW optical drive type which is better than most comparable spec desktop computers that are a similar age to it. Most PCs of a similar spec and age to it have a DVD Super Multi optical drive type.

This personal computer's optical drive type (Blu-Ray RW) is actually the best optical drive type across all many processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the Z640.

The worst optical drive type across similar types of personal computer is DVD+RW.

2 Reasons Against

Quite Slow Processor Clock Speed

With a processor clock speed of only 2.3 gigahertz, the HP Z640 has one of the slower processor clock speeds amongst many processor core personal computers of this age. The slowest processor clock speed of personal computers of a similar spec and age to the Z640 is 1.6GHz, the fastest is 3.7GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 2.9GHz.

If you would prefer a computer with a faster processor clock speed then you might want to consider the Lenovo P700 (£1,851.60) (2.4GHz), or the HP Z640 (£1,277.70) (2.4GHz).

Quite Slow Maximum Turbo Frequency

Across all the computers that have been available for a comparable time to the Z640 the maximum turbo frequencies range from 2.5GHz to 4GHz, and the average maximum turbo frequency is 3.5GHz. At only 3 gigahertz, the HP Z640 has a quite slow maximum turbo frequency compared to most of the other many processor core personal computers that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

2 Other reasons to consider the HP Z640

SSD Storage Medium

The storage speed of this PC is SSD, which is typical of many computers that are a similar age to 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.

Chart Edit

Average Total Storage Capacity

The HP Z640 has a relatively standard total storage capacity (512 gigabytes) compared to most of the other personal computers of this type and age.

If you would prefer a desktop computer with a bigger total storage capacity then you might want to consider the HP Z420 (£1,506.93) (1TB).
