Chart Edit

Only HDD Storage Media

The storage speed of this PC is HDD, which is typical of many medium processor cores computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to 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.

Chart Edit

Very Small Internal Memory

The average internal memory of medium processor cores computers that came out more than a year ago is 7.7GB, and the internal memorys range from 2GB to 32GB. At only 4 gigabytes, the HP Z230 SFF has a quite small internal memory compared to most of the other PCs that are a comparable age to the Z230 SFF.

Chart Edit

Only 11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version

This desktop computer supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is typical of many medium processor cores computers that are a comparable age to it.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory

When compared to other personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the Z230 SFF that we have checked, the Z230 SFF's maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of only 1.024 gigabytes is one of the smallest. The smallest maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of medium processor cores computers that are a similar age to the Z230 SFF is 1GB and the biggest is 64GB.

Chart Edit

Very Low System Bus Rate

Computers of this type and age have system bus rates of between 5GT/s and 8GT/s, and the average system bus rate is 6.1GT/s. With a system bus rate of only 5 Gigatransfers per second, the HP Z230 SFF has a quite low system bus rate compared to most of the other medium processor cores computers that are a comparable age to the Z230 SFF.
