8 Reasons For

64-Bit Processor Operating Modes

This computer supports a 64-bit processor operating modes, which is typical of many similar spec PCs that are a comparable age to it.

Chart Edit

Good Brand

HP medium processor cores computers have good ratings on average and across all desktop computers HP is one of the better rated manufacturers.

Very Fast Memory Clock Speeds Supported by Processor

The memory clock speeds supported by processor of the Z230 Workstation of 1,600 megahertz is one of the fastest amongst PCs of a similar age and spec to the Z230 Workstation. The average memory clock speeds supported by processor of medium processor cores computers that were released more than two years ago is 1,300MHz, and the memory clock speeds supported by processors range from 800MHz to 1,600MHz.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Internal Memory

The internal memorys of comparable spec desktop computers that have been around for around the same time as the Z230 Workstation range from 2GB to 64GB. At 16 gigabytes, the Z230 Workstation has a quite big internal memory compared to most of the other PCs of this spec and age.

Chart Edit

SSD Storage Media

The Z230 Workstation has a faster storage speed than most desktop computers of this spec and age. This HP personal computer has an SSD storage media, whereas most desktop computers of a comparable type and age to it have an HDD storage media. 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 desktop computer's storage speed (SSD) is in fact the best storage speed amongst all medium processor cores computers that were launched more than two years ago.

The worst storage speed across similar types of desktop computer is HDD.
