HP Z840 Workstation Review
HP Z840 Workstation UNBOXING Windows 7 Professional

7 Reasons For

Good Brand

PCs built by HP are some of the better PCs according to average reviews from users and experts.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on recently released many processor core computers.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Internal Memory

The smallest internal memory of comparable spec desktop computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Z840 is 8GB, the biggest is 64GB, and the average internal memory is 25GB. With an internal memory of 32 gigabytes, the HP Z840 has a quite big internal memory compared to most of the other many processor core computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Z840.

If this many processor core computer internal memory is not big enough for you then you might also want to consider the DELL Precision T7810 (64GB).

DDR4-SDRAM Internal Memory Type

This computer has a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type, which is typical of many desktop computers that have been available for the last year.

Chart Edit

Two Ethernet LAN (RJ-45) Ports

Most of the other PCs that have been around for the last year only have one Ethernet LAN (RJ-45) port, however the HP Z840 has two Ethernet LAN (RJ-45) ports.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Solid-State Drive Capacity

With a solid-state drive capacity of 512 gigabytes, the HP Z840 has a quite big solid-state drive capacity compared to most of the other many processor core computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Z840. The average solid-state drive capacity of desktop computers that are a similar age to the Z840 is 380GB, and the solid-state drive capacities range from 120GB to 520GB.

Chart Edit

Has One Memory Slot

The number of memory slots found on the HP Z840 is more than most new personal computers. The most frequently found memory slot is 4x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this desktop computer. The memory slots 16x DIMM are also found on this personal computer.

Chart Edit

4 Reasons Against

Only Two USB 2.0 Ports

Most personal computers that were launched in the last year have between two and seven USB 2.0 ports, including the HP Z840 which has two USB 2.0 ports.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Max Memory Bandwidth Supported Processor

At only 59 gigabytes per second, the HP Z840 has a fairly slow max memory bandwidth supported processor compared to most of the other recently released PCs. The average max memory bandwidth supported processor of newly released computers is 66GB/s, and the max memory bandwidth supported processor range from 42GB/s to 77GB/s.

Chart Edit

Quite Low System Bus Data Transfer Rate

The HP Z840 has a fairly low system bus data transfer rate (only 8 Gigatransfers per second) compared to most of the other similar spec computers that are a comparable age to the Z840. The average system bus data transfer rate of newly released many processor core computers is 8.5GT/s.

Chart Edit

Heavy

Across all the new many processor core computers the weights range from 250g to 28kg. The HP Z840 is quite heavy (21.1 kilograms) compared to most of the other many processor core computers that have been around for a similar time to the Z840.

Chart Edit

4 Other reasons to consider the HP Z840

Released Eleven Months Ago

It was eleven months ago when HP released the Z840.

SSD Storage Medium

The storage speed of this personal computer is SSD, which is the most frequently found storage medium on PCs that were launched around the same time as it. 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.

Chart Edit

Average Total Storage Capacity

At 512 gigabytes, the HP Z840 has a pretty typical total storage capacity compared to most of the other latest many processor core computers.

Personal computers with a bigger total storage capacity that might be worth looking at include the HP Z440 ($2,277.44) (1TB).

Average Processor Clock Speed

The HP Z840 has a pretty standard processor clock speed (2.4 gigahertz) compared to most of the other PCs that are a similar age to the Z840.

If you would prefer a PC with a faster processor clock speed then you might want to consider the HP 840 (2.5GHz), or the Apple Mac Pro (3GHz).
