34% bigger processor cache Edit
The Apple Mac Pro is a 30MB processor cache PC. That's 10MB bigger than the HP Z440 (20MB).
Wi-Fi Edit
The Apple Mac Pro supports wi-Fi, however the HP Z440 does not support wi-Fi. Read more

Popular technology that allows an electronic device to exchange data or connect to the internet wirelessly using radio waves.

One more ethernet LAN (RJ-45) ports Edit
The Apple Mac Pro has two ethernet LAN (RJ-45) portss, however the HP Z440 only has one ethernet LAN (RJ-45) ports. Read more

Number of Ethernet LAN (RJ-45) ports (connecting interfaces) in the device. Ethernet LAN (RJ-45) ports allow a computer to connect to the ethernet.

Two CPU configuration (max)s Edit
The Apple Mac Pro takes two CPU configuration (max)s, however the HP Z440 only takes one CPU configuration (max).
2x lighter Edit
The Apple Mac Pro has a weight of 5kg. That's 6kg lighter than the HP Z440 (11kg).
Better expert reviews
Based on 47 reviews, the average expert review score of the Apple Mac Pro is 76%, but the average rating of the HP Z440 is 70% (based on 3 reviews).
9 Reasons For
0.3GHz faster processor frequency Edit
The HP Z440 is a 3GHz processor clock speed PC, whereas the Apple Mac Pro is only a 2.7GHz processor clock speed PC (0.3GHz slower). Read more

The speed that the microprocessor executes each instruction or each vibration of the clock. The CPU requires a fixed number of clock ticks, or cycles, to execute each instruction. The faster the clocks rate, the faster the CPU, or the faster it can execute instructions. Clock Speeds are usually determined in MHz, 1 MHz representing 1 million cycles per second, or in GHz, 1 GHz representing 1 thousand million cycles per second. The higher the CPU speed, the better a computer will perform.

A higher processor clock speed means that the computer can complete more calculations every second which means that applications will run faster.

8.3GB/s faster memory bandwidth supported by processor (max) Edit
The HP Z440 is a 68GB/s max memory bandwidth supported processor PC. That's 8.3GB/s faster than the Apple Mac Pro (68GB/s).
A lot faster memory clock speeds supported by processor Edit
The HP Z440 is a 1,333MHz memory clock speed supported processor PC, whereas the Apple Mac Pro is only an 800MHz memory clock speed supported processor PC (533MHz slower).
A lot bigger internal memory Edit
The HP Z440 has an internal memory of 32GB, however the Apple Mac Pro is only a 16GB memory PC (16GB smaller). Read more

A computer's memory which is directly accessible to the CPU.

A higher internal memory will allow the computer to run more quickly.

Faster memory clock speed Edit
The HP Z440 has a memory clock speed of 2,133MHz, but the Apple Mac Pro is only a 1,866MHz memory clock speed PC (267MHz slower). Read more

The frequency at which the memory (e.g. RAM) runs.

A lot bigger maximum internal memory Edit
The HP Z440 has a maximum internal memory of 128GB, whereas the Apple Mac Pro is only a 64GB maximum internal memory PC (64GB smaller). Read more

The maximum internal memory which is available in the product.

50% bigger total storage capacity Edit
The HP Z440 is a 512GB total storage capacity PC. That's 256GB bigger than the Apple Mac Pro (512GB). Read more

The total internal storage capacity is the space available for the computer to store documents, media and applications.

A bigger internal storage capacity means that you can store more applications, documents and media on the computer.

Four more USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports quantitys Edit
The HP Z440 has eight USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports quantitys, however the Apple Mac Pro only has four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports quantitys.
Better user reviews
Based on 2 reviews, the average user review score of the HP Z440 is 100%, however the average rating of the Apple Mac Pro is 91% (based on 173 reviews).
