64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This personal computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most commonly supported processor operating mode on PCs of this spec and age.
11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This computer supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is typical of many desktop computers that came out more than two years ago.
Quite Fast Processor Clock Speed
The processor clock speeds of similar spec computers that were launched more than two years ago range from 1GHz to 4.1GHz. With a processor clock speed of 3.5 gigahertz, the Z230 SFF has one of the faster processor clock speeds amongst medium processor core computers of this age.
Fairly Big Total Storage Capacity
The smallest total storage capacity of desktop computers of a comparable type and age to the Z230 SFF is 32GB, the biggest is 2.3TB, and the average total storage capacity is 720GB. The HP Z230 SFF has one of the bigger total storage capacity (1,000 gigabyte) amongst medium processor core computers of this age.
Two PCI Express X16 Slots
Most PCs of a similar age and spec to the Z230 SFF have between one and two PCI Express x16 slots, including the HP Z230 SFF which has two PCI Express x16 slots.
+6 More reasons for
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This desktop computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most commonly supported PCI Express slots version on medium processor core computers that were launched around the same time as it.
Quite Fast Maximum Turbo Frequency
The average maximum turbo frequency of computers of a similar spec and age to the Z230 SFF is 3.6GHz. At 3.9 gigahertz, the Z230 SFF has a fairly fast maximum turbo frequency 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 SFF is more than most personal computers of a comparable spec and age to it. This computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most commonly found memory slot found on computers that are a similar age to the Z230 SFF.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this desktop computer is DVD Super Multi, which is the most frequently found optical drive type on desktop computers of a comparable age and spec to it.
The heights of medium processor core computers that are a similar age to the Z230 SFF range from 19mm to 560mm, and the average height is 280mm. With a height of only 100 millimeters, the HP Z230 SFF is one of the shorter medium processor core computers that are a comparable age to the Z230 SFF amongst similar spec personal computers of this age.
4 Reasons Against
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this desktop computer is HDD, which is the most commonly found storage medium on similar spec desktop computers that came out more than two years ago. 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.
Very Small Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
Across all the medium processor core computers that have been around for more than two years the maximum on-board graphics adapter memories range from 1GB to 1.8GB, and the average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory is 1.5GB. At only 1.024 gigabytes, the HP Z230 SFF has a quite small maximum on-board graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other PCs that are a comparable age to the Z230 SFF.
Only One PCI Express X1 Slot
The HP Z230 SFF is a one PCI Express x1 slot PC.
Quite Small Processor Cache
At only 6 megabytes, the HP Z230 SFF has a fairly small processor cache compared to most of the other desktop computers of this age and spec. The average processor cache of medium processor core computers that were released more than two years ago is 6.7MB.
