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

Most desktop computers that have been available for more than two years have between two and eight USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports, including the HP Z640 which has eight USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.

Chart Edit

Fairly Fast Memory Clock Speed Supported by Processor

With a memory clock speed supported by processor of 1,600 megahertz, the HP Z640 has one of the faster memory clock speeds supported by processors amongst personal computers of this age. The average memory clock speed supported by processor of many processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the Z640 is 1,100MHz, and the memory clock speeds supported by processors range from 800MHz to 1,600MHz.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Maximum Internal Memory

At 256 gigabytes, the HP Z640 has a quite big maximum internal memory compared to most of the other personal computers of this spec and age. The smallest maximum internal memory of many processor core personal computers that were launched around the same time as the Z640 is 32GB, the biggest is 520GB, and the average maximum internal memory is 140GB.

Chart Edit

DDR4-SDRAM Internal Memory Type

The HP Z640 has a newer internal memory type than most many processor core personal computers that are a similar age to it. This computer has a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type, whereas most desktop computers that have been around for a similar time to it have a DDR3-SDRAM internal memory type.

A DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type is in fact the best internal memory type amongst all personal computers of this spec and age.

A DDR3-SDRAM internal memory type is the worst internal memory type amongst comparable types of computer.

4 Reasons Against

Quite Slow Processor Clock Speed

The processor clock speeds of computers that have been available for more than two years range from 1.6GHz to 3.7GHz. At only 2.4 gigahertz, the HP Z640 has a quite slow processor clock speed compared to most of the other many processor core personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Z640.

If you would prefer a faster processor clock speed then you might also want to consider the Lenovo P900[plb_2556129_price] (2.6GHz).

Only Two USB 2.0 Ports

Most many processor core personal computers that have been available for a comparable time to the Z640 have between two and nine USB 2.0 ports, including the HP Z640 which has two USB 2.0 ports.

Chart Edit

Very Small Internal Memory

At only 8 gigabytes, the HP Z640 has a fairly small internal memory compared to most of the other PCs of this spec and age. Across all the computers of a comparable spec and age to the Z640 the internal memory range from 4GB to 64GB.

If you would prefer a bigger internal memory then you might want to look at the Apple Mac Pro[plb_3817139_price] (12GB).

4 Other reasons to consider the HP Z640

Released Over Two Years Ago

It was over two years ago when HP released the Z640.

Average Hard Drive Capacity

The HP Z640 has a pretty average hard drive capacity (1,000 gigabyte) compared to most of the other similar spec computers that have been available for more than two years.

Computers with a bigger hard drive capacity that might also be worth looking at include the Lenovo P700[plb_2552850_price] (2TB).

Average Total Storage Capacity

At 1,000 gigabyte, the HP Z640 has a fairly standard total storage capacity compared to most of the other many processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to the Z640.

Chart Edit

HDD Storage Medium

The HP Z640 has an HDD storage medium which is faster than most many processor core personal computers that have been on the market for a similar time to it. Most many processor core personal computers that were released more than two years ago have a Flash storage medium. 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.
