Chart Edit

12 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version

The HP Z240 supports a better on-board graphics adapter DirectX version than most PCs of a comparable age and spec to it. This personal computer supports a 12 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, whereas most medium processor core personal computers that were launched around the same time as it support an 11 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version.

A 12 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version is in fact the best supported on-board graphics adapter DirectX version amongst all PCs that have been available for around the same time as the Z240.

An 11.2/12 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version is the worst supported on-board graphics adapter DirectX version amongst similar types of computer.

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 medium processor core personal computers that came out around the same time as it.

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 personal computer. Most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been available for a similar time to the Z240 have between one and seven USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.

Chart Edit

3 PCI Express Slots Version

This PC supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many desktop computers of this spec and age.

Chart Edit

Fairly Fast Memory Clock Speed

Medium processor core personal computers that came out more than a year ago have memory clock speeds of between 1,000MHz and 2,400MHz. The HP Z240 has one of the faster memory clock speeds (2,133 megahertz) amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age.

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 desktop computers of a similar spec and age to it.

This PC's internal memory type (DDR4-SDRAM) is in fact the best internal memory type amongst all similar spec computers that were released more than a year ago.

Amongst similar types of PC the worst internal memory type is DDR3-SDRAM.

Fairly High System Bus Data Transfer Rate

The system bus data transfer rates of medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the Z240 range from 5GT/s to 8GT/s, and the average system bus data transfer rate is 6GT/s. The HP Z240 has a fairly high system bus data transfer rate (8 Gigatransfers per second) compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the Z240.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Maximum Internal Memory

The HP Z240 has a fairly big maximum internal memory (64 gigabytes) compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were released around the same time as the Z240. Personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the Z240 have maximum internal memory of between 2GB and 260GB, and the average maximum internal memory is 33GB.

Chart Edit

Eight Processor Threads

The HP Z240 is a eight processor thread computer. Most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were launched more than a year ago only have between four and seven processor threads.

Chart Edit

Has One Memory Slot

The number of memory slots found on the HP Z240 is more than most PCs of this age and type. This HP computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most commonly found memory slot found on medium processor core personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the Z240.

Chart Edit

DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type

The optical drive type of this personal computer is DVD Super Multi, which is the most commonly found optical drive type on comparable spec PCs that have been around for more than a year.

Chart Edit

1 Reason Against

Only HDD Storage Medium

The storage speed of this PC is HDD, which is typical of many similar spec personal computers that have been available for a comparable time 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.

We compared all the other HDD personal computers to this computer and we think cheaper personal computers such as the Fujitsu Esprimo E920[plb_2399576_price], the Acer Predator G3-710[plb_3108617_price], and the HP 600 G2[plb_3791095_price] is also worth considering.

If you would prefer a computer with a faster storage speed then you might want to look at the HP ProDesk 600 G2 Mini[plb_3070061_price] (SSD), or the DELL 7040[plb_3072619_price] (SSD) which is also cheaper.

5 Other reasons to consider the HP Z240

Released Over a Year Ago

This personal computer was released over a year ago.

Average Processor Clock Speed

At 3.4 gigahertz, the HP Z240 has a pretty typical processor clock speed compared to most of the other comparable spec computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Z240.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 3.4GHz processor clock speed personal computers currently available including the 800 G2[pl_3255262_price], or the EliteDesk 800 G1[pl_2819743_price] both from HP or the Acer Aspire X3-710[plb_3192159_price] which is cheaper.

If this HP personal computer processor clock speed is too slow for you then you might also want to consider the HP 810-477na[plb_3402544_price] (3.6GHz).

Average Hard Drive Capacity

At 1,000 gigabyte, the HP Z240 has a pretty typical hard drive capacity compared to most of the other personal computers of a similar age and spec to the Z240.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 1TB hard drive capacity personal computers currently available including cheaper computers such as the DELL Precision T1700[plb_3100006_price].

If this personal computer hard drive capacity is too small for you then you might also want to consider the HP 810-477na[plb_3402544_price] (2TB).

Average Total Storage Capacity

At 1,000 gigabyte, the HP Z240 has a relatively standard total storage capacity compared to most of the other computers of this spec and age.

We compared all the other 1TB total storage capacity personal computers to this personal computer and we think the HP Z240[plb_3195859_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If this computer total storage capacity is too small for you then you might also want to look at the HP 810-477na[plb_3402544_price] (2TB).

Average Internal Memory

The HP Z240 has a pretty typical internal memory (8 gigabytes) compared to most of the other desktop computers of this type and age.

We compared this PC to all the other 8GB memory personal computers and we think cheaper PCs such as the DELL 7040 Micro[plb_3139663_price], and the HP EliteDesk 800 G2 Mini[plb_3078512_price] is also worth considering.

If you would prefer a bigger internal memory then you might also want to consider the HP 810-477na[plb_3402544_price] (12GB).
