[DangDi.vn] HP Z640 Workstation 3D review

8 Reasons For

HP PCs Have Good Reviews

Based on 265 expert and user reviews, HP has good ratings for its PCs. HP also has good ratings specifically within its many processor cores PCs range compared to other brands.

Two CPU Configuration (max)s

Most of the other many processor cores PCs that are a similar age to the Z640 only take one CPU configuration (max), however the HP Z640 takes two CPU configuration (max)s.

Chart Edit

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

Most personal computers of this age and spec have between two and eight USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports quantitys, including the HP Z640 which has eight USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

Very Big Maximum Internal Memory Supported by Processor

When compared to other PCs of this spec and age that we have checked, the HP Z640's maximum internal memory supported by processor of 768 gigabytes is one of the biggest. The average maximum internal memory supported by processor of comparable spec computers that were released more than two years ago is 610GB.

Chart Edit

Quite Fast Memory Clock Speeds Supported by Processor

With a memory clock speeds supported by processor of 1,600 megahertz, the HP Z640 has one of the faster memory clock speeds supported by processors amongst comparable spec desktop computers of this age. Desktop computers of this type and age have memory clock speeds supported by processors of between 800MHz and 1,600MHz, and the average memory clock speeds supported by processor is 1,100MHz.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Total Storage Capacity

With a total storage capacity of 1,000 gigabyte, the HP Z640 has a fairly big total storage capacity compared to most of the other PCs of this type and age. The total storage capacitys of PCs of this type and age range from 180GB to 8.3TB, and the average total storage capacity is 760GB.

If you would prefer a bigger total storage capacity then you might want to look at the Lenovo P700[plb_2552850_price] (2TB).

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 PCs of this age and spec. The memory clock speeds of many processor cores PCs that were released more than two years ago range from 1,300MHz to 2,200MHz.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Maximum Internal Memory

The HP Z640 has one of the bigger maximum internal memorys (256 gigabytes) amongst similar spec personal computers of this age. The average maximum internal memory of many processor cores PCs that have been available for more than two years is 120GB, and the maximum internal memorys range from 32GB to 520GB.

Chart Edit

7 Reasons Against

Quite Slow Processor Frequency

At only 2.4 gigahertz, the HP Z640 has a quite slow processor frequency compared to most of the other computers of a comparable age and spec to the Z640. Many processor cores PCs that have been around for around the same time as the Z640 have processor frequencys of between 1.6GHz and 3.7GHz.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 2.4GHz processor clock speed personal computers currently available including because of it's better review score, the HP Z640[plb_2520388_price].

Read more Less Chart Edit

Only HDD Storage Media

The HP Z640 has a faster storage speed than most many processor cores PCs that were released around the same time as it. This computer has an HDD storage media, whereas most many processor cores PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as it 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.

This personal computer's storage speed (HDD) is actually the worst storage speed across all many processor cores PCs that are a similar age to the Z640.

The best storage speed amongst similar types of personal computer is SSD.

Only Two USB 2.0 Ports Quantitys

The HP Z640 is a two USB 2.0 ports quantity personal computer.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Memory Bandwidth Supported by Processor (max)

The HP Z640 has one of the slower memory bandwidth supported by processor (max)s (only 59 gigabytes per second) amongst similar spec desktop computers of this age. Many processor cores PCs that are a similar age to the Z640 have memory bandwidth supported by processor (max)s of between 32GB/s and 68GB/s.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Processor Boost Frequency

The slowest processor boost frequency of many processor cores PCs that have been around for a similar time to the Z640 is 2.5GHz, the fastest is 4GHz, and the average processor boost frequency is 3.5GHz. With a processor boost frequency of only 3.2 gigahertz, the HP Z640 has one of the slower processor boost frequencys amongst computers of this age.

Chart Edit

Only Two PCI Express X16 (Gen 3.x) Slotss

The HP Z640 is a two PCI Express x16 (Gen 3.x) slots desktop computer. Most of the other desktop computers of a comparable spec and age to the Z640 have between two and three PCI Express x16 (Gen 3.x) slotss.

Chart Edit

Only One Ethernet LAN (RJ-45) Ports

The HP Z640 is a one ethernet LAN (RJ-45) ports PC. Most of the other personal computers that have been on the market for more than two years have between one and two ethernet LAN (RJ-45) portss.

3 Other reasons to consider the HP Z640

Released Over Two Years Ago

This computer was released over two years ago.

Average Internal Memory

At 16 gigabytes, the HP Z640 has a relatively average internal memory compared to most of the other desktop computers of this age and type.

Chart Edit

Average Hard Drive Capacity

The HP Z640 has a pretty standard hard drive capacity (1,000 gigabyte) compared to most of the other desktop computers of this age and type.

If this personal computer hard drive capacity is not big enough for you then you might want to consider the Lenovo P700[plb_2552850_price] (2TB).
