10 Reasons For

HP Has Good Reviews for Its Computers

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

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many many processor core personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

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

The HP Z640 is a eight USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port desktop computer. Most of the other many processor core personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Z640 only have between two and seven USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.

Chart Edit

Only Released Eight Months Ago

The Z640 was only relased by HP eight months ago.

SSD Storage Medium

The storage speed of this computer is SSD, which is typical of many desktop computers that have been on the market for the last year. 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

Very High System Bus Data Transfer Rate

The lowest system bus data transfer rate of PCs that were released around the same time as the Z640 is 6.4GT/s, the highest is 9.6GT/s, and the average system bus data transfer rate is 8.5GT/s. With a system bus data transfer rate of 9.6 Gigatransfers per second, the HP Z640 has a very high system bus data transfer rate compared to most of the other many processor core personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the Z640.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Maximum Internal Memory

At 256 gigabytes, the HP Z640 has a fairly big maximum internal memory compared to most of the other recently released many processor core personal computers. The smallest maximum internal memory of similar spec personal computers that have been available for a comparable time to the Z640 is 32GB and the biggest is 520GB.

Chart Edit

DDR4-SDRAM Internal Memory Type

This personal computer has a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type, which is typical of many many processor core personal computers that have been available for the last year.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Solid-State Drive Capacity

The solid-state drive capacities of recently released many processor core personal computers range from 120GB to 520GB, and the average solid-state drive capacity is 380GB. The HP Z640 has one of the bigger solid-state drive capacities (512 gigabytes) amongst PCs of this age.

Chart Edit

Blu-Ray RW Optical Drive Type

The HP Z640 has a Blu-Ray RW optical drive type which is better than the Blu-Ray DVD Combo optical drive type found on most computers that have been on the market for the last year. The optical drive type of all similar spec personal computers that were released in the last 12 months ranges from DVD+RW (worst) to Blu-Ray DVD Combo (best).

Chart Edit

5 Reasons Against

Quite Slow Processor Clock Speed

Many processor core personal computers that have been around for a similar time to the Z640 have processor clock speeds of between 1.6GHz and 3.6GHz. At only 2.3 gigahertz, the HP Z640 has a quite slow processor clock speed compared to most of the other new comparable spec PCs.

Chart Edit

Only Two USB 2.0 Ports

The HP Z640 is a two USB 2.0 port desktop computer. Most of the other recently released many processor core personal computers have between two and seven USB 2.0 ports.

Chart Edit

Only Two 3.5" Bays

Most recently released desktop computers have between two and three 3.5" bays, including the HP Z640 which has two 3.5" bays.

Chart Edit

Very Slow Maximum Turbo Frequency

Across all the new many processor core personal computers the maximum turbo frequencies range from 2.8GHz to 4GHz, and the average maximum turbo frequency is 3.4GHz. With a maximum turbo frequency of only 3 gigahertz, the HP Z640 has a fairly slow maximum turbo frequency compared to most of the other many processor core personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the Z640.

Chart Edit

Only Two PCI Express X16 (Gen 3.x) Slots

The HP Z640 is a two PCI Express x16 (Gen 3.x) slot personal computer. Most of the other many processor core personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Z640 have between two and three PCI Express x16 (Gen 3.x) slots.

Chart Edit

2 Other reasons to consider the HP Z640

Average Internal Memory

The HP Z640 has a fairly standard internal memory (32 gigabytes) compared to most of the other new many processor core personal computers.

If this computer internal memory is too small for you then you might want to look at the DELL Precision T7810[plb_3704050_price] (64GB).

Average Total Storage Capacity

The HP Z640 has a pretty standard total storage capacity (512 gigabytes) compared to most of the other many processor core personal computers that have been around for a comparable time to the Z640.

If this computer total storage capacity is too small for you then you might also want to look at the HP 840[plb_3353675_price] (1TB).
