We checked 265 expert and user reviews for HP personal computers and found that on average HP has good reviews compared to other manufacturers. We also found that HP has good reviews specifically for its many processor cores PCs.
Two CPU Configuration (max)s
The HP Z840 is a PC that takes two CPU configuration (max)s. Most of the other computers that were launched more than a year ago only take one CPU configuration (max).
Eight USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports Quantitys
The HP Z840 is a eight USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports quantity personal computer.
Fairly Big Internal Memory
The HP Z840 has a fairly big internal memory (32 gigabytes) compared to most of the other comparable spec PCs that have been on the market for more than a year. The internal memorys of many processor cores PCs that are a comparable age to the Z840 range from 4GB to 64GB.
Very Big Maximum Internal Memory
When compared to other many processor cores PCs that were released more than a year ago that we have assessed, the HP Z840's maximum internal memory of 512 gigabytes is one of the biggest. The average maximum internal memory of many processor cores PCs that were released one year ago is 180GB.
16 Processor Threadss
The HP Z840 is a 16 processor threads desktop computer. Most of the other computers of a similar age and type to the Z840 have between 6 and 23 processor threadss.
+3 More reasons for
Four Number of 3.5" Bayss
The HP Z840 is a four number of 3.5" bays computer. Most of the other PCs that have been around for around the same time as the Z840 have between two and nine number of 3.5" bayss.
Fairly Big Processor Cache
The average processor cache of many processor cores PCs that have been on the market for a comparable time to the Z840 is 17MB, and the processor caches range from 12MB to 30MB. With a processor cache of 20 megabytes, the HP Z840 has one of the bigger processor caches amongst PCs of this age.
2 Reasons Against
Only Two USB 2.0 Ports Quantitys
Most comparable spec PCs that are a similar age to the Z840 have between two and eight USB 2.0 ports quantitys, including the HP Z840 which has two USB 2.0 ports quantitys.
Quite Slow Memory Bandwidth Supported by Processor (max)
At only 59 gigabytes per second, the HP Z840 has a fairly slow memory bandwidth supported by processor (max) compared to most of the other computers of this type and age. The memory bandwidth supported by processor (max)s of many processor cores PCs that were launched around the same time as the Z840 range from 51GB/s to 68GB/s, and the average memory bandwidth supported by processor (max) is 63GB/s.
5 Other reasons to consider the HP Z840
Released Over a Year Ago
It was over a year ago when HP released the Z840.
Average Hard Drive Capacity
At 1,000 gigabyte, the HP Z840 has a fairly typical hard drive capacity compared to most of the other desktop computers of a comparable age and type to the Z840.
It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 1TB hard drive capacity personal computers currently available including the HP Z420[plb_2498184_price] which has better reviews.
Average Total Storage Capacity
At 1,000 gigabyte, the HP Z840 has a fairly typical total storage capacity compared to most of the other personal computers of this age and type.
We compared all the other 1TB total storage capacity PCs to this computer and we think because of it's better review score, the HP Z420[plb_2498184_price] is also worth considering.
+3 Other reasons
HDD Storage Media
The HP Z840 has an HDD storage media which is faster than most computers of a comparable age and type to it. Most many processor cores PCs that were released one year ago have an SSD 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.
We compared all the other HDD computers to this personal computer and we think the HP Z420[plb_2498184_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.
Average Processor Frequency
With a processor frequency of 2.6 gigahertz, the HP Z840 has a pretty typical processor frequency compared to most of the other many processor cores PCs that have been available for a comparable time to the Z840.
If this desktop computer processor frequency is not fast enough for you then you might want to consider the HP Z420[plb_3012672_price] (3.2GHz and higher rated).
