Quite Big Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
The HP Z230 has one of the bigger maximum on-board graphics adapter memories (1.74 gigabytes) amongst medium processor core computers of this age. The average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of computers of a similar age and spec to the Z230 is 1.5GB, and the maximum on-board graphics adapter memories range from 1GB to 1.8GB.
11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This PC supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is the most frequently supported on-board graphics adapter DirectX version on personal computers of a comparable spec and age to it.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This PC supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many computers that have been around for more than two years.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This PC has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most commonly found processor cache level on medium processor core computers that are a similar age to it.
+6 More reasons for
Three 3.5" Bays
Most similar spec PCs that have been around for around the same time as the Z230 have between one and eight 3.5" bays, including the HP Z230 which has three 3.5" bays.
Fairly Fast Maximum Turbo Frequency
Across all the computers of this age and type the maximum turbo frequencies range from 1.3GHz to 4.4GHz, and the average maximum turbo frequency is 3.6GHz. At 3.9 gigahertz, the HP Z230 has a fairly fast maximum turbo frequency compared to most of the other comparable spec personal computers that came out around the same time as the Z230.
Has One Memory Slot
The HP Z230 has a greater number of memory slots than most medium processor core computers that have been on the market for around the same time as it. This HP computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most frequently found memory slot found on PCs that came out around the same time as the Z230.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this desktop computer is DVD Super Multi, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that were launched more than two years ago.
With a height of only 100 millimeters, the HP Z230 is fairly short compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that have been on the market for more than two years. The heights of medium processor core computers that were released more than two years ago range from 19mm to 560mm.
1 Reason Against
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this computer is HDD, which is typical of many desktop computers that have been around for a comparable time to it. 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.
