Quite Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency

At 400 megahertz, the HP Z240 has a quite fast on-board graphics adapter base frequency compared to most of the other comparable spec desktop computers that were released more than a year ago. Medium processor cores computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Z240 have on-board graphics adapter base frequencys of between 200MHz and 850MHz.

Chart Edit

4.4 On-Board Graphics Adapter OpenGL Version

This computer supports a 4.4 on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version, which is the most commonly supported on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version on PCs of a comparable age and spec to it.

Chart Edit

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

The HP Z240 is a six USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports quantity desktop computer. Most of the other personal computers of this type and age have between one and seven USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

HP Has Good Personal Computer Reviews

We calculated the average ratings for all HP computers and also specifically for HP medium processor cores computers and found that in both cases HP had good ratings compared to other manufacturers.

Chart

Quite Big Maximum Internal Memory Supported by Processor

Across all the desktop computers that have been around for around the same time as the Z240 the maximum internal memory supported by processors range from 2GB to 770GB, and the average maximum internal memory supported by processor is 64GB. The HP Z240 has one of the bigger maximum internal memory supported by processors (64 gigabytes) amongst medium processor cores computers of this age.

Chart Edit

Quite Fast Memory Bandwidth Supported by Processor (max)

With a memory bandwidth supported by processor (max) of 34.1 gigabytes per second, the HP Z240 has a quite fast memory bandwidth supported by processor (max) compared to most of the other medium processor cores computers that have been available for a comparable time to the Z240. Across all the PCs of a comparable spec and age to the Z240 the memory bandwidth supported by processor (max)s range from 10GB/s to 68GB/s.

Chart Edit

SSD Storage Media

The HP Z240 has an SSD storage media which is faster than the HDD storage media found on most medium processor cores computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to it. 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.

An SSD storage media is in fact the best storage speed amongst all similar spec PCs that came out around the same time as the Z240.

The worst storage speed amongst comparable types of PC is HDD.

Chart Edit

Fairly Fast Memory Clock Speed

Across all the PCs that were launched more than a year ago the memory clock speeds range from 1,000MHz to 2,400MHz. The HP Z240 has one of the faster memory clock speeds (2,133 megahertz) amongst desktop computers of this age.

Chart Edit

DDR4-SDRAM Internal Memory Type

The HP Z240 has a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type which is newer than most PCs of a similar age and type to it. Most medium processor cores computers that have been on the market for a similar time to it have a DDR3-SDRAM internal memory type.

This PC's internal memory type (DDR4-SDRAM) is actually the best internal memory type across all medium processor cores computers that have been available for more than a year.

A DDR3-SDRAM internal memory type is the worst internal memory type across comparable types of PC.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Maximum Internal Memory

The average maximum internal memory of PCs that have been on the market for more than a year is 32GB. With a maximum internal memory of 64 gigabytes, the HP Z240 has a fairly big maximum internal memory compared to most of the other comparable spec desktop computers that have been around for around the same time as the Z240.

Chart Edit

Has One Memory Slots

The number of memory slots found on the HP Z240 is more than most similar spec personal computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to it. This personal computer has a 4x DIMM memory slots, which is the most frequently found memory slots found on medium processor cores computers that came out around the same time as the Z240.

Chart Edit

DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type

The optical drive type of this personal computer is DVD Super Multi, which is the most frequently found optical drive type on desktop computers of a similar age and spec to it.

Chart Edit

2 Reasons Against

Very Small Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory

The average discrete graphics adapter memory of desktop computers of this age and type is 1.3TB. At only 2 gigabytes, the HP Z240 has a quite small discrete graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other similar spec computers that came out around the same time as the Z240.
