Review of the HP Z240 Workstation by Joe Herman
HP Z240 unboxing. A Look at HP's Z240 Entry-Level Workstation

10 Reasons For

Very Fast Memory Clock Speeds Supported by Processor

The slowest memory clock speeds supported by processor of personal computers that are a comparable age to the Z240 is 800MHz, the fastest is 2,200MHz, and the average memory clock speeds supported by processor is 1,500MHz. With a memory clock speeds supported by processor of 2,133 megahertz, the HP Z240 has a very fast memory clock speeds supported by processor compared to most of the other medium processor cores computers that were released one year ago.

Chart Edit

64-Bit Processor Operating Modes

This PC supports a 64-bit processor operating modes, which is typical of many medium processor cores computers that have been around for more than a year.

Chart Edit

4.4 On-Board Graphics Adapter OpenGL Version

This personal computer supports a 4.4 on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version, which is the most frequently supported on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version on medium processor cores computers that have been around for a comparable time to it.

Chart Edit

Six USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports Quantitys

Most similar spec personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the Z240 have between one and seven USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports quantitys, including the HP Z240 which has six USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

HP Personal Computers Have Good Reviews

On average HP medium processor cores computers have good ratings as do all personal computers produced by HP.

3 PCI Express Slots Version

This personal computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most frequently supported PCI Express slots version on desktop computers of a similar spec and age to it.

Chart Edit

DDR4-SDRAM Internal Memory Type

The HP Z240 has a newer internal memory type than most medium processor cores computers that have been around for more than a year. This personal computer has a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type, whereas most computers that were released one year ago have a DDR3-SDRAM internal memory type.

A DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type is in fact the best internal memory type across all personal computers of this age and type.

The worst internal memory type across comparable types of personal computer is DDR3-SDRAM.

Quite Big Maximum Internal Memory

The HP Z240 has a fairly big maximum internal memory (64 gigabytes) compared to most of the other desktop computers that are a similar age to the Z240. Medium processor cores computers that were released one year ago have maximum internal memorys of between 2GB and 260GB, and the average maximum internal memory is 32GB.

Chart Edit

Has One Memory Slots

The HP Z240 has a greater number of memory slots than most PCs of this age and spec. This HP PC has a 4x DIMM memory slots, which is the most frequently found memory slots found on comparable spec computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Z240.

4 Reasons Against

Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency (max)

The HP Z240 has one of the slower on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency (max)s (only 1,050 megahertz) amongst comparable spec desktop computers of this age. The on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency (max)s of medium processor cores computers that were launched more than a year ago range from 500MHz to 1,300MHz.

Chart Edit

Only HDD Storage Media

The storage speed of this PC is HDD, which is typical of many computers of a comparable age and spec 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.

Alternative HDD personal computers currently available which you might want to consider include cheaper PCs such as the HP Z240[plb_3195859_price].
