9 Reasons For

Two CPU Configuration (max)s

The HP Z840 is a PC that takes two CPU configuration (max)s.

Chart Edit

HP Has Good Reviews for Its Desktop Computers

HP many processor cores PCs have good reviews on average and across all PCs HP is one of the superior brands.

Quite Fast Memory Clock Speeds Supported by Processor

Across all the many processor cores PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the Z840 the memory clock speeds supported by processors range from 800MHz to 1,600MHz, and the average memory clock speeds supported by processor is 1,400MHz. The HP Z840 has a quite fast memory clock speeds supported by processor (1,600 megahertz) compared to most of the other comparable spec PCs that have been available for around the same time as the Z840.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Internal Memory

The internal memorys of many processor cores PCs that were released more than a year ago range from 4GB to 64GB, and the average internal memory is 17GB. With an internal memory of 32 gigabytes, the HP Z840 has one of the bigger internal memorys amongst many processor cores PCs of this age.

Chart Edit

SSD Storage Media

The storage speed of this personal computer is SSD, which is typical of many similar spec PCs that have been around for around the same time as it. 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.

Alternative SSD computers currently available that you might want to consider include the HP 440 which has better reviews.

Two Ethernet LAN (RJ-45) Portss

The HP Z840 is a two ethernet LAN (RJ-45) ports computer. Most of the other similar spec PCs that have been available for a comparable time to the Z840 only have one ethernet LAN (RJ-45) ports.

Chart Edit

16 Processor Threadss

The HP Z840 is a 16 processor threads desktop computer. Most of the other desktop computers of a similar age and spec to the Z840 have between 6 and 23 processor threadss.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Solid-State Drive Capacity

Across all the many processor cores PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the Z840 the solid-state drive capacitys range from 120GB to 1TB. With a solid-state drive capacity of 512 gigabytes, the HP Z840 has one of the bigger solid-state drive capacitys amongst many processor cores PCs of this age.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Processor Cache

With a processor cache of 20 megabytes, the HP Z840 has one of the bigger processor caches amongst comparable spec PCs of this age. The average processor cache of PCs of this spec and age is 17MB, and the processor caches range from 12MB to 30MB.

Chart Edit

3 Reasons Against

Very Small Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory

Across all the computers of this type and age the discrete graphics adapter memorys range from 2GB to 8.2TB. At only 4 gigabytes, the HP Z840 has a fairly small discrete graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other many processor cores PCs that were released one year ago.

Chart Edit

Only Two USB 2.0 Ports Quantitys

Most many processor cores PCs that have been around for around the same time as the Z840 have between two and eight USB 2.0 ports quantitys, including the HP Z840 which has two USB 2.0 ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Processor Boost Frequency

The processor boost frequencys of personal computers that were launched more than a year ago range from 2.6GHz to 3.9GHz, and the average processor boost frequency is 3.5GHz. At only 3.2 gigahertz, the HP Z840 has a fairly slow processor boost frequency compared to most of the other desktop computers that have been around for around the same time as the Z840.

Chart Edit

3 Other reasons to consider the HP Z840

Released Over a Year Ago

It was over a year ago when HP released the Z840.

Average Total Storage Capacity

The HP Z840 has a relatively typical total storage capacity (512 gigabytes) compared to most of the other comparable spec desktop computers that were released around the same time as the Z840.

Chart Edit

Average Processor Frequency

The HP Z840 has a pretty standard processor frequency (2.4 gigahertz) compared to most of the other many processor cores PCs that have been around for more than a year.
