Chart Edit

HP Has Good Reviews for Its PCs

We checked 322 expert and owner reviews for HP personal computers and found that on average HP has good ratings compared to other manufacturers. We also found that HP has good ratings specifically for its many processor cores desktop computers.

Quite Fast Memory Clock Speeds Supported by Processor

Across all the PCs of a similar spec and age to the Z640 the memory clock speeds supported by processors range from 800MHz to 1,600MHz, and the average memory clock speeds supported by processor is 1,100MHz. With a memory clock speeds supported by processor of 1,600 megahertz, the HP Z640 has a fairly fast memory clock speeds supported by processor compared to most of the other many processor cores desktop computers that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Fairly Fast Memory Clock Speed

At 2,133 megahertz, the HP Z640 has a fairly fast memory clock speed compared to most of the other personal computers of this type and age. The memory clock speeds of computers of a comparable age and spec to the Z640 range from 1,300MHz to 2,200MHz.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Maximum Internal Memory

Computers of a similar type and age to the Z640 have maximum internal memorys of between 32GB and 520GB, and the average maximum internal memory is 120GB. The HP Z640 has a fairly big maximum internal memory (256 gigabytes) compared to most of the other many processor cores desktop computers that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

DDR4-SDRAM Internal Memory Type

The HP Z640 has a newer internal memory type than most many processor cores desktop computers that were released more than two years ago. This computer has a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type, whereas most personal computers that were released more than two years ago have a DDR3-SDRAM internal memory type.

This personal computer's internal memory type (DDR4-SDRAM) is actually the best internal memory type amongst all many processor cores desktop computers that have been available for a comparable time to the Z640.

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

Chart Edit

9 Reasons Against

Quite Slow Processor Frequency

The HP Z640 has one of the slower processor frequencys (only 2.4 gigahertz) amongst computers of this age. The slowest processor frequency of PCs of this age and type is 1.6GHz, the fastest is 3.7GHz, and the average processor frequency is 2.9GHz.

Chart Edit

Only HDD Storage Media

The HP Z640 has a faster storage speed than most many processor cores desktop computers that have been around for a comparable time to it. This HP PC has an HDD storage media, whereas most computers of this spec and age have a Flash storage media. 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.
