22 Reasons For

HP Has Good Reviews for Its PCs

On average HP medium processor core PCs have good reviews as do all computers produced by HP.

12 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version

The HP Z240 supports a 12 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version which is better than the 11 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version supported by most medium processor core PCs that came out in the last year.

A 12 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version is actually the best supported on-board graphics adapter DirectX version across all recently released personal computers.

The worst supported on-board graphics adapter DirectX version amongst similar types of PC is 11.2/12.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This PC supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many medium processor core PCs that were launched around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Six USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports

The HP Z240 is a six USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port desktop computer. Most of the other medium processor core PCs that were released in the last year have between one and seven USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory

At 1.74 gigabytes, the HP Z240 has a quite big maximum on-board graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other desktop computers that have been around for a similar time to the Z240. The maximum on-board graphics adapter memories of medium processor core PCs that were released around the same time as the Z240 range from 1GB to 64GB, and the average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory is 7.9GB.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Max Internal Memory Supported Processor

With a max internal memory supported processor of 64 gigabytes, the HP Z240 has one of the bigger max internal memory supported processors amongst personal computers of this age. The average max internal memory supported processor of medium processor core PCs that are a comparable age to the Z240 is 99GB, and the max internal memory supported processors range from 2GB to 1.6TB.

Chart Edit

Fairly Fast Max Memory Bandwidth Supported Processor

The slowest max memory bandwidth supported processor of comparable spec PCs that were released around the same time as the Z240 is 10GB/s and the fastest is 77GB/s. With a max memory bandwidth supported processor of 34.1 gigabytes per second, the HP Z240 has one of the faster max memory bandwidth supported processor amongst medium processor core PCs of this age.

Chart Edit

Fairly Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency

With an on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of 1,150 megahertz, the HP Z240 has a fairly fast on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other recently released comparable spec PCs. The slowest on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of personal computers that are a comparable age to the Z240 is 500MHz, the fastest is 1,400MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency is 1,100MHz.

Chart Edit

Quite Fast Processor Clock Speed

The processor clock speeds of PCs that have been on the market for the last year range from 1.3GHz to 4GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 3.1GHz. With a processor clock speed of 3.4 gigahertz, the HP Z240 has a quite fast processor clock speed compared to most of the other recently released medium processor core PCs.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 3.4GHz processor clock speed personal computers currently available including the DELL 7040 ($1,035.99), or the HP Z240 ($1,187.90) which is cheaper.

PCs with a faster processor clock speed that might be worth considering include the HP Z240 (3.5GHz), or the Lenovo P310 (3.6GHz) which is also cheaper.

Quite Big Internal Memory

The smallest internal memory of comparable spec personal computers that were launched around the same time as the Z240 is 2GB and the biggest is 32GB. The HP Z240 has a fairly big internal memory (16 gigabytes) compared to most of the other medium processor core PCs that were launched around the same time as the Z240.

There are a number of other 16GB memory computers currently available that you might want to consider including cheaper desktop computers such as the Z240, or the Z240 ($1,187.90) both from HP.

If this personal computer internal memory is too small for you then you might want to look at the HP 240 Tower (32GB).

SSD Storage Medium

The HP Z240 has an SSD storage medium which is faster than the HDD storage medium found on most new medium processor core PCs. 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 PC's storage speed (SSD) is actually the best storage speed amongst all medium processor core PCs that have been available for the last year.

Amongst comparable types of PC the worst storage speed is HDD.

It may also be worth considering one of the other SSD computers currently available including cheaper PCs such as the DELL 7040 ($1,035.99), the HP Z240 ($1,187.90), or the Lenovo P310.

Quite Fast Maximum Turbo Frequency

Across all the latest similar spec desktop computers the maximum turbo frequencies range from 1.8GHz to 4.2GHz, and the average maximum turbo frequency is 3.6GHz. The HP Z240 has a quite fast maximum turbo frequency (4 gigahertz) compared to most of the other newly released medium processor core PCs.

Chart Edit

3 PCI Express Slots Version

This PC supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most frequently supported PCI Express slots version on computers that have been around for the last year.

Chart Edit

DDR4-SDRAM Internal Memory Type

This PC has a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type, which is the most frequently found internal memory type on PCs that have been available for around the same time as it.
