User Interview  Video Editor & CG   Graphic Designer, HP Z820, Quadro 4000, Tesla C2075
HP Z820 Hackintosh Fastest Mac on the planet

5 Reasons For

Good Brand

We checked 265 owner and expert reviews for HP computers and found that on average HP has good reviews compared to other manufacturers. We also found that HP has good reviews specifically within its many processor cores PCs range.

Two CPU Configuration (max)s

The HP Z820 is a PC that takes two CPU configuration (max)s.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Total Storage Capacity

The HP Z820 has a quite big total storage capacity (1,000 gigabyte) compared to most of the other similar spec computers that are a comparable age to the Z820. The total storage capacitys of computers of this age and type range from 180GB to 8.3TB.

If this personal computer total storage capacity is not big enough for you then you might also want to look at the Lenovo P700[plb_2552850_price] (2TB).

Very Big Maximum Internal Memory

At 512 gigabytes, the HP Z820 has a very big maximum internal memory compared to most of the other many processor cores PCs that have been around for a comparable time to the Z820. Computers that were launched around the same time as the Z820 have maximum internal memorys of between 32GB and 520GB, and the average maximum internal memory is 120GB.

Chart Edit

Has One Memory Slots

The number of memory slots found on the HP Z820 is more than most PCs of a comparable age and type to it. The most frequently found memory slots is 4x DIMM, but this memory slots is not found on this HP desktop computer. The memory slotss 16x DIMM are also found on this desktop computer.

Chart Edit

5 Reasons Against

Only HDD Storage Media

The HP Z820 has an HDD storage media which is faster than most many processor cores PCs that were launched around the same time as it. Most similar spec desktop computers that were released more than two years ago 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 computer's storage speed (HDD) is in fact the worst storage speed amongst all personal computers of this type and age.

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

Quite Slow Memory Bandwidth Supported by Processor (max)

The HP Z820 has a quite slow memory bandwidth supported by processor (max) (only 51.2 gigabytes per second) compared to most of the other computers of a comparable spec and age to the Z820. The slowest memory bandwidth supported by processor (max) of personal computers that were released more than two years ago is 32GB/s and the fastest is 68GB/s.

Chart Edit

Quite Low System Bus Rate

Across all the desktop computers of a comparable type and age to the Z820 the system bus rates range from 5GT/s to 9.6GT/s. The HP Z820 has one of the lower system bus rates (only 7.2 Gigatransfers per second) amongst many processor cores PCs of this age.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Processor Boost Frequency

Many processor cores PCs that came out around the same time as the Z820 have processor boost frequencys of between 2.5GHz and 4GHz, and the average processor boost frequency is 3.5GHz. With a processor boost frequency of only 3.1 gigahertz, the HP Z820 has a fairly slow processor boost frequency compared to most of the other comparable spec personal computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the Z820.

Chart Edit

Heavy

The average weight of similar spec PCs that were released around the same time as the Z820 is 11kg. At 19.5 kilograms, the HP Z820 is quite heavy compared to most of the other comparable spec PCs that are a similar age to the Z820.

4 Other reasons to consider the HP Z820

Released Over Three Years Ago

HP released the Z820 over three years ago.

Average Internal Memory

The HP Z820 has a fairly typical internal memory (16 gigabytes) compared to most of the other many processor cores PCs that are a similar age to the Z820.

Chart Edit

Average Hard Drive Capacity

With a hard drive capacity of 1,000 gigabyte, the HP Z820 has a pretty standard hard drive capacity compared to most of the other similar spec desktop computers that have been around for around the same time as the Z820.

If you are looking for a computer with a bigger hard drive capacity then you might want to look at the Lenovo P700[plb_2552850_price] (2TB).
