64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

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

Chart Edit

Two CPUs Configuration (max)

Most of the other desktop computers of a similar age and type to the Z640 only take one CPU configuration (max), however the HP Z640 takes two CPUs configuration (max).

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Max Internal Memory Supported Processor

Computers of a similar spec and age to the Z640 have max internal memory supported processors of between 64GB and 770GB, and the average max internal memory supported processor is 630GB. The HP Z640 has one of the bigger max internal memory supported processors (768 gigabytes) amongst similar spec computers of this age.

Chart Edit

Fairly Fast Memory Clock Speed Supported by Processor

The memory clock speeds supported by processors of many processor core personal computers that were released around the same time as the Z640 range from 800MHz to 1,600MHz. 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 computers of this age.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Total Storage Capacity

With a total storage capacity of 1,000 gigabyte, the HP Z640 has a quite big total storage capacity compared to most of the other many processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the Z640. The smallest total storage capacity of many processor core personal computers that came out around the same time as the Z640 is 180GB and the biggest is 8.3TB.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 1TB total storage capacity PCs currently available including the HP Z620[plb_2190153_price] which is cheaper.

Quite Big Maximum Internal Memory

At 256 gigabytes, the HP Z640 has a quite big maximum internal memory compared to most of the other PCs of this age and type. The maximum internal memory of personal computers of a comparable age and spec to the Z640 range from 32GB to 520GB.

Chart Edit

DDR4-SDRAM Internal Memory Type

The HP Z640 has a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type which is newer than most PCs of this spec and age. Most comparable spec desktop computers that were released more than two years ago have a DDR3-SDRAM internal memory type.

A DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type is actually the best internal memory type across all many processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to the Z640.

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

Eight USB 3.0 Ports

The HP Z640 is a eight USB 3.0 port desktop computer. Most of the other many processor core personal computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the Z640 have between two and eight USB 3.0 ports.

Chart Edit

DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type

The optical drive type of this computer is DVD Super Multi, which is the most commonly found optical drive type on many processor core personal computers that came out more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

6 Reasons Against

Quite Slow Processor Clock Speed

At only 2.4 gigahertz, the HP Z640 has a fairly slow processor clock speed compared to most of the other similar spec personal computers that have been available for more than two years. The slowest processor clock speed of many processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the Z640 is 1.6GHz, the fastest is 3.7GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 2.9GHz.

If this computer processor clock speed is not fast enough for you then you might want to consider the HP Z440[plb_2665760_price] (3.5GHz) which is also cheaper.

Only Two USB 2.0 Ports

The HP Z640 is a two USB 2.0 port computer.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Max Memory Bandwidth Supported Processor

At only 59 gigabytes per second, the HP Z640 has a fairly slow max memory bandwidth supported processor compared to most of the other PCs of this spec and age. The max memory bandwidth supported processor of personal computers of a similar age and type to the Z640 range from 32GB/s to 68GB/s.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Maximum Turbo Frequency

The slowest maximum turbo frequency of PCs that were launched around the same time as the Z640 is 2.5GHz, the fastest is 4GHz, and the average maximum turbo frequency is 3.5GHz. With a maximum turbo frequency of only 3.2 gigahertz, the HP Z640 has a fairly slow maximum turbo frequency compared to most of the other computers of this spec and age.

Chart Edit

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

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

Chart Edit

Only One Ethernet LAN (RJ-45) Port

The HP Z640 is a one Ethernet LAN (RJ-45) port personal computer. Most of the other many processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to the Z640 have one Ethernet LAN (RJ-45) port.

4 Other reasons to consider the HP Z640

Released Over Two Years Ago

It was over two years ago when this PC was released.

Average Internal Memory

At 16 gigabytes, the HP Z640 has a pretty typical internal memory compared to most of the other many processor core personal computers that were released around the same time as the Z640.

Other 16GB memory personal computers currently available that you might want to look at include cheaper computers such as the HP Z620[plb_2190153_price].

Average Hard Drive Capacity

At 1,000 gigabyte, the HP Z640 has a relatively standard hard drive capacity compared to most of the other many processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the Z640.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 1TB hard drive capacity personal computers currently available including the HP Z620[plb_2190153_price] which is cheaper.

Read more Less Chart Edit

HDD Storage Medium

The HP Z640 has an HDD storage medium which is faster than the Flash storage medium found on most similar spec personal computers that have been around for around the same time as it. 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.

Alternative HDD PCs currently available which you might also want to consider include the Z620[pl_2190153_price], or the Z440[pl_2665760_price] both from HP which is cheaper.

If you want a PC with a faster storage speed then you might also want to consider the HP Z440[plb_2466558_price] (SSD), or the Lenovo Thinkstation P500[plb_2535509_price] (SSD).
