HP medium processor core computers have good reviews on average and across all personal computers HP is one of the superior brands.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This PC supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that are a comparable age to it.
Quite Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
The average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of comparable spec desktop computers that have been on the market for more than two years is 1,200MHz. With an on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of 1,200 megahertz, the HP Z230 has a fairly fast on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other desktop computers that were released more than two years ago.
11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This PC supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is typical of many similar spec personal computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to it.
Quite Big Internal Memory
The smallest internal memory of medium processor core computers that were launched more than two years ago is 2GB and the biggest is 64GB. At 16 gigabytes, the HP Z230 has a quite big internal memory compared to most of the other comparable spec personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the Z230.
SSD Storage Medium
The HP Z230 has an SSD storage medium which is faster than the HDD storage medium found on most personal computers of this age and spec. 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.
This computer's storage speed (SSD) is in fact the best storage speed amongst all similar spec PCs that have been around for around the same time as the Z230.
Amongst similar types of computer the worst storage speed is HDD.
+10 More reasons for
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This desktop computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that came out around the same time as it.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many personal computers that are a comparable age to it.
Gold EPEAT Compliance
This PC has a Gold EPEAT compliance, which is the most frequently found EPEAT compliance on similar spec desktop computers that came out more than two years ago.
Six USB 2.0 Ports
Most personal computers that have been around for more than two years have between two and nine USB 2.0 ports, including the HP Z230 which has six USB 2.0 ports.
Two 5.25" Bays
The HP Z230 is a two 5.25" bay computer. Most of the other PCs of a comparable spec and age to the Z230 have between one and two 5.25" bays.
Eight Processor Threads
The HP Z230 has more processor threads than most of the computers that have been around for a similar time to the Z230. This HP desktop computer is a eight processor thread computer compared to most of the computers of this spec and age which only have between four and seven processor threads.
Quite Big Processor Cache
The processor caches of PCs that have been available for around the same time as the Z230 range from 0.51MB to 10MB. At 8 megabytes, the HP Z230 has a fairly big processor cache compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that were released more than two years ago.
Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the HP Z230 is more than most medium processor core computers that are a comparable age to it. This PC has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most frequently found memory slot found on medium processor core computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Z230.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this personal computer is DVD Super Multi, which is the most frequently found optical drive type on medium processor core computers that came out around the same time as it.
1 Reason Against
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
The total storage capacity of computers of this age and type range from 32GB to 2.3TB. With a total storage capacity of only 256 gigabytes, the HP Z230 has a quite small total storage capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that were released more than two years ago.
2 Other reasons to consider the HP Z230
Released Over Two Years Ago
It was over two years ago when HP released the Z230.
Average Processor Clock Speed
At 3.4 gigahertz, the HP Z230 has a pretty standard processor clock speed compared to most of the other personal computers of a similar age and type to the Z230.
