Chart Edit

Quite Fast Memory Clock Speed Supported by Processor

The HP Z640 has a fairly fast memory clock speed supported by processor (1,600 megahertz) compared to most of the other comparable spec PCs that have been available for a similar time to the Z640. Desktop computers of this age and spec have memory clock speeds supported by processors of between 800MHz and 1,600MHz, and the average memory clock speed supported by processor is 1,100MHz.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Total Storage Capacity

With a total storage capacity of 1,000 gigabyte, the HP Z640 has a quite big total storage capacity compared to most of the other personal computers that were launched around the same time as the Z640. Computers that are a comparable age to the Z640 have total storage capacity of between 180GB and 8.3TB, and the average total storage capacity is 810GB.

Other 1TB total storage capacity computers currently available that you might also want to consider include cheaper PCs such as the HP Z840.

If you would prefer a bigger total storage capacity then you might also want to look at the Lenovo P700 (2TB and cheaper).

Fairly Fast Memory Clock Speed

The memory clock speeds of many processor core computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Z640 range from 1,300MHz to 2,200MHz. The HP Z640 has a fairly fast memory clock speed (2,133 megahertz) compared to most of the other many processor core computers that were released around the same time as the Z640.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Maximum Internal Memory

The smallest maximum internal memory of similar spec personal computers that were launched more than two years ago is 32GB and the biggest is 520GB. At 256 gigabytes, the HP Z640 has a fairly big maximum internal memory compared to most of the other many processor core computers that are a similar age to the Z640.

Chart Edit

DDR4-SDRAM Internal Memory Type

The HP Z640 has a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type which is newer than the DDR3-SDRAM internal memory type found on most many processor core computers that came out more than two years ago.

This computer's internal memory type (DDR4-SDRAM) is in fact the best internal memory type amongst all comparable spec personal computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the Z640.

Amongst comparable types of computer the worst internal memory type is DDR3-SDRAM.

Chart Edit

7 Reasons Against

Quite Slow Processor Clock Speed

The average processor clock speed of many processor core computers that have been around for more than two years is 2.9GHz, and the processor clock speeds range from 1.6GHz to 3.7GHz. The HP Z640 has a fairly slow processor clock speed (only 2.4 gigahertz) compared to most of the other many processor core computers that came out around the same time as the Z640.

If you would prefer a faster processor clock speed then you might also want to look at the Lenovo Thinkstation P500 (3.5GHz), or the HP Z440 ($1,400.73) (3.5GHz).

Only Three USB 2.0 Ports

The HP Z640 is a three USB 2.0 port desktop computer.

Chart Edit

Only Two 3.5" Bays

Most comparable spec computers that are a similar age to the Z640 have between two and five 3.5" bays, including the HP Z640 which has two 3.5" bays.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Maximum Turbo Frequency

The maximum turbo frequencies of desktop computers of this type and age range from 2.5GHz to 4GHz, and the average maximum turbo frequency is 3.5GHz. At only 3.2 gigahertz, the HP Z640 has a fairly slow maximum turbo frequency compared to most of the other comparable spec computers that are a similar age to the Z640.

Chart Edit

Only Two PCI Express X16 (Gen 3.x) Slots

Most many processor core computers that have been available for around the same time as the Z640 have between two and three PCI Express x16 (Gen 3.x) slots, including the HP Z640 which has two PCI Express x16 (Gen 3.x) slots.

Chart Edit

Only One Ethernet LAN (RJ-45) Port

The HP Z640 is a one Ethernet LAN (RJ-45) port PC.

Chart Edit

4 Other reasons to consider the HP Z640

Released Over Two Years Ago

It was over two years ago when this many processor core computer was released.

Average Internal Memory

At 16 gigabytes, the HP Z640 has a relatively standard internal memory compared to most of the other many processor core computers that were released around the same time as the Z640.

Chart Edit

Average Hard Drive Capacity

The HP Z640 has a fairly typical hard drive capacity (1,000 gigabyte) compared to most of the other many processor core computers that were released more than two years ago.

We compared all the other 1TB hard drive capacity personal computers to this PC and we think the HP Z840 which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If you are looking for a personal computer with a bigger hard drive capacity then you might want to consider the Lenovo P700 (2TB and cheaper).

HDD Storage Medium

The HP Z640 has a faster storage speed than most personal computers of a comparable type and age to it. This personal computer has an HDD storage medium, whereas most comparable spec personal computers that have been available for around the same time as it have a Flash storage medium. 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.

There are a number of alternative HDD desktop computers currently available which you might also want to look at including cheaper computers such as the HP Z840, or the Lenovo P900.

If the storage speed of this HP computer is not fast enough for you then you might also want to consider the Thinkstation P500 (SSD), or the P900 (SSD) both from Lenovo or the HP Z640 (SSD).
