HP Z240 unboxing. A Look at HP's Z240 Entry-Level Workstation

16 Reasons For

64-Bit Processor Operating Modes

This PC supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating modes, which is the most frequently supported processor operating modes on personal computers that have been around for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

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

Most personal computers of a comparable spec and age to 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.

HP Computers Have Good Reviews

We checked 322 user and expert reviews for HP computers and found that on average HP has good reviews. We also found that HP has good reviews specifically for its medium processor cores computers.

Quite Big Maximum Internal Memory Supported by Processor

The maximum internal memory supported by processors of medium processor cores computers that were launched more than a year ago range from 2GB to 770GB. The HP Z240 has one of the bigger maximum internal memory supported by processors (64 gigabytes) amongst desktop computers of this age.

Chart Edit

Fairly Fast Memory Bandwidth Supported by Processor (max)

The slowest memory bandwidth supported by processor (max) of computers that came out around the same time as the Z240 is 10GB/s, the fastest is 68GB/s, and the average memory bandwidth supported by processor (max) is 30GB/s. At 34.1 gigabytes per second, the HP Z240 has a quite fast memory bandwidth supported by processor (max) compared to most of the other desktop computers of this spec and age.

Chart Edit

Fairly Fast Processor Frequency

At 3.5 gigahertz, the HP Z240 has a fairly fast processor frequency compared to most of the other desktop computers that have been around for a similar time to the Z240. Similar spec personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the Z240 have processor frequencys of between 1.3GHz and 4GHz, and the average processor frequency is 3.1GHz.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Internal Memory

The internal memorys of medium processor cores computers that were launched around the same time as the Z240 range from 2GB to 32GB, and the average internal memory is 7.7GB. The HP Z240 has one of the biggest internal memorys (16 gigabytes) amongst medium processor cores computers of this age.

Chart Edit

SSD Storage Media

The HP Z240 has an SSD storage media which is faster than most desktop computers of a similar spec and age to it. Most medium processor cores computers that were released one year ago 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 actually the best storage speed amongst all comparable spec PCs that have been available for around the same time as the Z240.

Amongst similar types of desktop computer the worst storage speed is HDD.

3 PCI Express Slots Version

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

Chart Edit

Quite Fast Memory Clock Speed

Across all the computers of this age and type the memory clock speeds range from 1,000MHz to 2,400MHz, and the average memory clock speed is 1,800MHz. The HP Z240 has a fairly fast memory clock speed (2,133 megahertz) compared to most of the other desktop computers that came out around the same time as the Z240.

Chart Edit

DDR4-SDRAM Internal Memory Type

The HP Z240 has a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type which is newer than the DDR3-SDRAM internal memory type found on most medium processor cores computers that are a similar age to it.

A DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type is in fact the best internal memory type amongst all computers that were released more than a year ago.

The worst internal memory type amongst similar types of personal computer is DDR3-SDRAM.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Fairly High System Bus Rate

The HP Z240 has a quite high system bus rate (8 Gigatransfers per second) compared to most of the other medium processor cores computers that were launched more than a year ago. Medium processor cores computers that came out around the same time as the Z240 have system bus rates of between 5GT/s and 8GT/s.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Maximum Internal Memory

With a maximum internal memory of 64 gigabytes, the HP Z240 has one of the bigger maximum internal memorys amongst medium processor cores computers of this age. The average maximum internal memory of comparable spec PCs that are a similar age to the Z240 is 32GB.

Chart Edit

Eight Processor Threadss

The HP Z240 is a eight processor threads PC. Most of the other medium processor cores computers that have been around for a similar time to the Z240 only have between four and seven processor threadss.

Chart Edit

Has One Memory Slots

The HP Z240 has a greater number of memory slots than most desktop computers that were launched more than a year ago. This computer has a 4x DIMM memory slots, which is the most commonly found memory slots found on medium processor cores computers that came out more than a year ago.

Chart Edit

DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type

The optical drive type of this PC is DVD Super Multi, which is the most frequently found optical drive type on comparable spec computers that have been on the market for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

1 Reason Against

Very Small Total Storage Capacity

The total storage capacitys of computers of this age and spec range from 4GB to 3.6TB. The HP Z240 has one of the smaller total storage capacitys (only 256 gigabytes) amongst medium processor cores computers of this age.
