HP Z840 Workstation Review
HP Z840 Workstation UNBOXING Windows 7 Professional
Review of the HP Z840 Workstation, Z27s Display & Quadro M6000

6 Reasons For

HP Has Good Personal Computer Reviews

HP is one of the superior personal computer brands according to average expert and user reviews, and HP also has good reviews for its many processor core personal computers.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on recently released comparable spec desktop computers.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Internal Memory

The HP Z840 has a fairly big internal memory (32 gigabytes) compared to most of the other many processor core personal computers that were released in the last year. The average internal memory of newly released many processor core personal computers is 25GB, and the internal memory range from 8GB to 64GB.

If you are looking for a bigger internal memory then you might also want to consider the DELL Precision T7810[plb_3704050_price] (64GB).

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 were released in the last 12 months. 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

DDR4-SDRAM Internal Memory Type

This personal computer has a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type, which is typical of many similar spec computers that have been available for a comparable time to it.

Chart Edit

Has One Memory Slot

The HP Z840 has a greater number of memory slots than most new similar spec PCs. The most commonly found memory slot is 4x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this computer. The memory slots 16x DIMM are also found on this HP desktop computer.

Chart Edit

3 Reasons Against

Quite Slow Max Memory Bandwidth Supported Processor

The average max memory bandwidth supported processor of desktop computers that have been around for the last year is 67GB/s. At only 59 gigabytes per second, the HP Z840 has a fairly slow max memory bandwidth supported processor compared to most of the other comparable spec personal computers that were released around the same time as the Z840.

Chart Edit

Quite Low System Bus Data Transfer Rate

The lowest system bus data transfer rate of new similar spec computers is 6.4GT/s and the highest is 9.6GT/s. The HP Z840 has a fairly low system bus data transfer rate (only 8 Gigatransfers per second) compared to most of the other latest many processor core personal computers.

Chart Edit

Heavy

Comparable spec PCs that came out in the last 12 months have weights of between 250g and 28kg. The HP Z840 is fairly heavy (21.1 kilograms) compared to most of the other many processor core personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Z840.

Chart Edit

3 Other reasons to consider the HP Z840

Released Eleven Months Ago

This HP desktop computer was released eleven months ago.

Average Total Storage Capacity

With a total storage capacity of 512 gigabytes, the HP Z840 has a pretty average total storage capacity compared to most of the other similar spec computers that have been available for a comparable time to the Z840.

If this HP PC total storage capacity is not big enough for you then you might want to look at the HP Z440[plb_3194691_price] (1TB).

Read more Less Chart Edit

Average Processor Clock Speed

With a processor clock speed of 2.4 gigahertz, the HP Z840 has a fairly average 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 Z840.

If you are looking for a faster processor clock speed then you might want to consider the 840[pl_3345296_price] (2.5GHz), the Z440[pl_3194686_price] (3GHz), or the Z440[pl_3194679_price] (3.5GHz) all from HP.
