HP Desktop Computers Have Good Reviews

On average HP many processor cores PCs have good ratings as do all desktop computers built by HP.

Quite Big Maximum Internal Memory Supported by Processor

The smallest maximum internal memory supported by processor of computers that have been available for around the same time as the Z820 is 64GB and the biggest is 770GB. The HP Z820 has a fairly big maximum internal memory supported by processor (768 gigabytes) compared to most of the other personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the Z820.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Internal Memory

The smallest internal memory of PCs of this spec and age is 4GB and the biggest is 64GB. With an internal memory of 32 gigabytes, the HP Z820 has one of the bigger internal memorys amongst comparable spec personal computers of this age.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Total Storage Capacity

With a total storage capacity of 1,000 gigabyte, the HP Z820 has a quite big total storage capacity compared to most of the other computers of a similar age and type to the Z820. The total storage capacitys of many processor cores PCs that have been around for a similar time to the Z820 range from 180GB to 8.3TB.

If this personal computer total storage capacity is too small for you then you might want to consider the Lenovo P700[plb_2552850_price] (2TB).

24 Processor Threadss

The HP Z820 is a 24 processor threads computer.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Processor Cache

Across all the desktop computers that were released around the same time as the Z820 the processor caches range from 12MB to 30MB. The HP Z820 has a quite big processor cache (30 megabytes) compared to most of the other desktop computers of a comparable age and spec to the Z820.

Chart Edit

Very Big Maximum Internal Memory

Across all the PCs of a comparable age and spec to the Z820 the maximum internal memorys range from 32GB to 520GB, and the average maximum internal memory is 120GB. The maximum internal memory of the HP Z820 of 512 gigabytes is one of the biggest amongst many processor cores PCs that are a similar age to the Z820.

Chart Edit

Two Ethernet LAN (RJ-45) Portss

Most many processor cores PCs that were released around the same time as the Z820 have between one and two ethernet LAN (RJ-45) portss, including the HP Z820 which has two ethernet LAN (RJ-45) portss.

Chart Edit

Three Number of 5.25" Bayss

The HP Z820 has more number of 5.25" bayss than most of the similar spec PCs that came out more than two years ago. This desktop computer is a three number of 5.25" bays PC compared to most of the computers of this type and age which only have between one and two number of 5.25" bayss.

Chart Edit

Not Supported Wi-Fi Standards

This computer supports a Not supported wi-Fi standards, which is the most commonly supported wi-Fi standards on computers that came out around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Has One Memory Slots

The number of memory slots found on the HP Z820 is more than most many processor cores PCs that were launched more than two years ago. The most commonly found memory slots is 4x DIMM, but this memory slots is not found on this desktop computer. The memory slotss 16x DIMM are also found on this personal computer.

Chart Edit

Supports One Placement Supported

The HP Z820 has a greater number of placements than most comparable spec PCs that have been on the market for a similar time to it. This PC supports a Vertical placement supported, which is the most commonly supported placement supported supported by comparable spec desktop computers that were launched around the same time as the Z820.

Chart Edit

6 Reasons Against

Very Slow Memory Clock Speeds Supported by Processor

The average memory clock speeds supported by processor of PCs of a comparable age and type to the Z820 is 1,100MHz, and the memory clock speeds supported by processors range from 800MHz to 1,600MHz. With a memory clock speeds supported by processor of only 800 megahertz, the HP Z820 has a quite slow memory clock speeds supported by processor compared to most of the other PCs that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Processor Frequency

The processor frequencys of comparable spec PCs that have been around for a similar time to the Z820 range from 1.6GHz to 3.7GHz. With a processor frequency of only 2.4 gigahertz, the HP Z820 has one of the slower processor frequencys amongst many processor cores PCs of this age.

Chart Edit

Only HDD Storage Media

The HP Z820 has an HDD storage media which is faster than most many processor cores PCs that have been available for around the same time as it. Most many processor cores PCs that have been available for a similar time to 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.

An HDD storage media is in fact the worst storage speed amongst all computers that came out around the same time as the Z820.

Amongst comparable types of PC the best storage speed is SSD.

Quite Slow Memory Clock Speed

With a memory clock speed of only 1,866 megahertz, the HP Z820 has one of the slower memory clock speeds amongst PCs of this age. The average memory clock speed of desktop computers that have been available for more than two years is 1,900MHz.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Processor Boost Frequency

The average processor boost frequency of computers of this age and type is 3.5GHz, and the processor boost frequencys range from 2.5GHz to 4GHz. With a processor boost frequency of only 3.2 gigahertz, the HP Z820 has a fairly slow processor boost frequency compared to most of the other many processor cores PCs that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Heavy

Across all the personal computers of this type and age the weights range from 5kg to 30kg, and the average weight is 11kg. At 21.1 kilograms, the HP Z820 is quite heavy compared to most of the other desktop computers of this type and age.
