Fairly Big Max Internal Memory Supported Processor

Medium processor core PCs that are a similar age to the Z240 have max internal memory supported processors of between 2GB and 1.6TB. At 64 gigabytes, the HP Z240 has a fairly big max internal memory supported processor compared to most of the other newly released PCs.

Chart Edit

Quite Fast Max Memory Bandwidth Supported Processor

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 similar spec desktop computers of this age. The slowest max memory bandwidth supported processor of medium processor core PCs that have been available for around the same time as the Z240 is 10GB/s, the fastest is 77GB/s, and the average max memory bandwidth supported processor is 34GB/s.

Chart Edit

The HP Z240 has one of the faster on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies (1,150 megahertz) amongst medium processor core PCs of this age.

Chart Edit

SSD Storage Medium

The HP Z240 has a faster storage speed than most new personal computers. This personal computer has an SSD storage medium, whereas most new comparable spec personal computers have an HDD storage medium. 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.

An SSD storage medium is actually the best storage speed across all new PCs.

An HDD storage medium is the worst storage speed across comparable types of personal computer.

Other SSD computers currently available that you might also want to look at include the Z240 ($1,187.90), or the Z240 ($1,632.86) both from HP or the Lenovo P310 which is cheaper.

4 Other reasons to consider the HP Z240

Released Twelve Months Ago

This desktop computer was released twelve months ago.

Average Processor Clock Speed

The HP Z240 has a relatively typical processor clock speed (3.3 gigahertz) compared to most of the other comparable spec computers that came out in the last 12 months.

If this desktop computer processor clock speed is not fast enough for you then you might also want to look at the 800 G2 ($669.00) (3.4GHz and cheaper), the 240 SFF (3.4GHz and cheaper), or the Z240 (3.5GHz and cheaper) all from HP.

Average Internal Memory

The HP Z240 has a pretty typical internal memory (8 gigabytes) compared to most of the other computers that have been available for the last year.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 8GB memory PCs currently available including the Lenovo P310 which is cheaper.

Computers with a bigger internal memory that might be worth looking at include the HP Z240 (16GB and cheaper).

Average Total Storage Capacity

The HP Z240 has a fairly typical total storage capacity (512 gigabytes) compared to most of the other medium processor core PCs that were launched in the last 12 months.

It may also be worth considering one of the other 512GB total storage capacity desktop computers currently available including cheaper PCs such as the HP Z240 ($1,632.86).

If this desktop computer total storage capacity is too small for you then you might want to consider the HP 240 SFF (1TB) which is also cheaper.
