Fairly Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency

At 1,200 megahertz, the Z230 SFF has a quite fast on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other PCs that are a similar age to the Z230 SFF. The average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of PCs of this type and age is 1,100MHz, and the on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies range from 640MHz to 1,300MHz.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory

At 1.74 gigabytes, the HP Z230 SFF has a quite big maximum on-board graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other computers of this spec and age. Across all the medium processor core personal computers that were launched around the same time as the Z230 SFF the maximum on-board graphics adapter memories range from 1GB to 64GB.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Internal Memory

With an internal memory of 16 gigabytes, the Z230 SFF has a fairly big internal memory compared to most of the other PCs of this spec and age. Across all the medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the Z230 SFF the internal memory range from 2GB to 64GB, and the average internal memory is 8.3GB.

If you are looking for a personal computer with a bigger internal memory then you might want to consider the HP 440 MT (32GB) which also has a higher rating.

SSD Storage Medium

The Z230 SFF has a faster storage speed than most desktop computers of this age and spec. This HP desktop computer has an SSD storage medium, whereas most similar spec personal computers that were released one year ago have an HDD storage medium. 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.

This PC's storage speed (SSD) is in fact the best storage speed amongst all PCs of a comparable age and spec to the Z230 SFF.

An HDD storage medium is the worst storage speed across comparable types of PC.

3 PCI Express Slots Version

This PC supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most frequently supported PCI Express slots version on desktop computers that were launched around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

L3 Processor Cache Level

This personal computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most frequently found processor cache level on medium processor core personal computers that were released more than a year ago.

Chart Edit

Six USB 2.0 Ports

The HP Z230 SFF is a six USB 2.0 port PC. Most of the other PCs of a comparable age and type to the Z230 SFF have between one and nine USB 2.0 ports.

Chart Edit

Two PCI Express X1 (Gen 2.x) Slots

The Z230 SFF is a two PCI Express x1 (Gen 2.x) slot computer. Most of the other medium processor core personal computers that came out more than a year ago have between one and two PCI Express x1 (Gen 2.x) slots.

Chart Edit

Four USB 3.0 Ports

Most medium processor core personal computers that were released around the same time as the Z230 SFF have between one and seven USB 3.0 ports, including the Z230 SFF which has four USB 3.0 ports.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Maximum Internal Memory

The maximum internal memory of PCs of a similar age and type to the Z230 SFF range from 2GB to 260GB, and the average maximum internal memory is 33GB. The Z230 SFF has a quite big maximum internal memory (32 gigabytes) compared to most of the other personal computers of a similar age and spec to the Z230 SFF.

Chart Edit

Has One Memory Slot

The number of memory slots found on the Z230 SFF is more than most medium processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to it. This computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most frequently found memory slot found on PCs that are a comparable age to the Z230 SFF.

Chart Edit

GDDR Discrete Graphics Memory Type

This computer supports a GDDR3 discrete graphics memory type, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that were released around the same time as it.

Chart Edit
