10 Reasons For

Good Brand

We checked the user and expert reviews of hundreds of desktop computers to determine an average rating for each PC manufacturer. On average computers from HP have good reviews from experts and owners.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This personal computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many personal computers of a comparable type and age to it.

Chart Edit

Two CPUs Configuration (max)

The HP Z640 takes more CPUs configuration (max) than most of the desktop computers of a similar age and type to the Z640. Most of the many processor core computers that were released one year ago only take one CPU configuration (max), however this HP desktop computer takes two CPUs configuration (max).

Chart Edit

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

The HP Z640 has more USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports than most of the similar spec PCs that were launched more than a year ago. Most of the similar spec computers that came out around the same time as the Z640 only have between four and seven USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports, however this personal computer has eight USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.

Chart Edit

SSD 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.

This computer's storage speed (SSD) is in fact the best storage speed across all computers of this age and type.

Across similar types of computer the worst storage speed is HDD.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative SSD PCs currently available including a cheaper PC such as the Lenovo P900[plb_2556131_price], or the HP Z440 MT[plb_2720829_price] or you might consider a higher rated PC such as the Lenovo P700[plb_2840953_price].

DDR4-SDRAM Internal Memory Type

The HP Z640 has a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type which is newer than most similar spec personal computers that were launched around the same time as it. Most desktop computers of this age and type have a DDR3-SDRAM internal memory type.

This personal computer's internal memory type (DDR4-SDRAM) is in fact the best internal memory type amongst all comparable spec desktop computers that were launched around the same time as the Z640.

A DDR3-SDRAM internal memory type is the worst internal memory type across similar types of personal computer.

Two Ethernet LAN (RJ-45) Ports

The HP Z640 is a two Ethernet LAN (RJ-45) port PC. Most of the other personal computers of a comparable age and type to the Z640 only have one Ethernet LAN (RJ-45) port.

Chart Edit

Four PS/2 Ports

The HP Z640 has more PS/2 ports than most of the personal computers that were released around the same time as the Z640. Most of the PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the Z640 only have between one and three PS/2 ports, however this computer has four PS/2 ports.

Chart Edit

Eight USB 3.0 Ports

The HP Z640 is a eight USB 3.0 port personal computer.

Chart Edit

Seven USB 2.0 Ports

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

Chart Edit

7 Reasons Against

Very Small Total Storage Capacity

With a total storage capacity of only 256 gigabytes, the HP Z640 has one of the smaller total storage capacity amongst desktop computers of this age. The total storage capacity of comparable spec personal computers that have been available for more than a year range from 120GB to 2.3TB.

If you are looking for a personal computer with a bigger total storage capacity then you might want to consider the Apple ME253[plb_3040923_price] (512GB).

Quite Slow Processor Clock Speed

The processor clock speeds of PCs of a comparable type and age to the Z640 range from 1.6GHz to 3.5GHz. The HP Z640 has one of the slower processor clock speeds (only 2.4 gigahertz) amongst many processor core computers of this age.

Desktop computers with a faster processor clock speed that might be worth looking at include the HP Z440 MT[plb_2720829_price] (3.5GHz and cheaper).

Quite Slow Max Memory Bandwidth Supported Processor

The slowest max memory bandwidth supported processor of comparable spec computers that have been around for a similar time to the Z640 is 51GB/s and the fastest is 68GB/s. With a max memory bandwidth supported processor of only 59 gigabytes per second, the HP Z640 has one of the slower max memory bandwidth supported processor amongst desktop computers of this age.

Chart Edit

Only Two 3.5" Bays

The HP Z640 is a two 3.5" bay computer. Most of the other many processor core computers that have been on the market for more than a year have between two and nine 3.5" bays.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Maximum Internal Memory

The smallest maximum internal memory of comparable spec computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the Z640 is 32GB, the biggest is 770GB, and the average maximum internal memory is 150GB. With a maximum internal memory of only 32 gigabytes, the HP Z640's maximum internal memory is one of the smallest amongst PCs that were released one year ago.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Maximum Turbo Frequency

At only 3.2 gigahertz, the HP Z640 has a fairly slow maximum turbo frequency compared to most of the other PCs of this spec and age. Across all the personal computers of this spec and age the maximum turbo frequencies range from 2.6GHz to 3.9GHz, and the average maximum turbo frequency is 3.6GHz.

Chart Edit

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

Most personal computers of this age and type have between one and three PCI Express x16 (Gen 3.x) slots, including the HP Z640 which has two PCI Express x16 (Gen 3.x) slots.
