HP Z240 unboxing. A Look at HP's Z240 Entry-Level Workstation

10 Reasons For

Good Brand

On average HP medium processor core personal computers have good ratings as do all personal computers produced by HP.

Fairly Fast Memory Clock Speed Supported by Processor

Medium processor core personal computers that have been around for more than a year have memory clock speeds supported by processors of between 800MHz and 2,200MHz. With a memory clock speed supported by processor of 2,133 megahertz, the HP Z240 has a fairly fast memory clock speed supported by processor compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were released one year ago.

Chart Edit

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This desktop computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on desktop computers of a comparable age and spec to it.

Chart Edit

4.4 On-Board Graphics Adapter OpenGL Version

This PC supports a 4.4 on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version, which is the most frequently supported on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version on PCs of this age and spec.

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.

Chart Edit

3 PCI Express Slots Version

This desktop computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most commonly supported PCI Express slots version on computers of this age and spec.

Chart Edit

DDR4-SDRAM Internal Memory Type

The HP Z240 has a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type which is newer than the DDR3-SDRAM internal memory type found on most personal computers that were launched more than a year ago.

A DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type is in fact the best internal memory type across all similar spec computers that came out more than a year ago.

The worst internal memory type amongst comparable types of PC is DDR3-SDRAM.

Quite Big Maximum Internal Memory

The maximum internal memory of personal computers of a similar age and spec to the Z240 range from 2GB to 260GB. At 64 gigabytes, the HP Z240 has a fairly big maximum internal memory compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the Z240.

Chart Edit

Has One Memory Slot

The HP Z240 has a greater number of memory slots than most medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to it. This personal computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most commonly found memory slot found on similar spec desktop computers that are a comparable age to the Z240.

Chart Edit

DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type

The optical drive type of this PC is DVD Super Multi, which is the most frequently found optical drive type on personal computers of a similar spec and age to it.

Chart Edit

5 Reasons Against

Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency

With an on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of only 1,050 megahertz, the HP Z240 has a fairly slow on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other desktop computers that have been available for more than a year. The average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the Z240 is 1,100MHz.

Chart Edit

Only HDD Storage Medium

The storage speed of this desktop computer is HDD, which is the most frequently found storage medium on medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to it. 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.

Chart Edit

Very Small Internal Memory

With an internal memory of only 4 gigabytes, the HP Z240 has one of the smaller internal memory amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age. The average internal memory of personal computers of this age and type is 8.3GB.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Processor Cache

The HP Z240 has a fairly small processor cache (only 6 megabytes) compared to most of the other similar spec desktop computers that are a comparable age to the Z240. The processor caches of computers of this spec and age range from 2MB to 10MB, and the average processor cache is 6.6MB.

Chart Edit

Only Four Processor Threads

The HP Z240 is a four processor thread computer. Most of the other personal computers of a similar spec and age to the Z240 have between four and seven processor threads.
