The on-board graphics adapter base frequencies of medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Z240 range from 310MHz to 850MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter base frequency is 360MHz.

Chart Edit

4.4 On-Board Graphics Adapter OpenGL Version

This PC supports a 4.4 on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version, which is typical of many PCs that were released more than a year ago.

Chart Edit

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

Most personal computers of a comparable type and age to the Z240 have between one and seven USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports, including the HP Z240 which has six USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.

Chart Edit

3 PCI Express Slots Version

This personal computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many computers that have been around for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Fairly Fast Memory Clock Speed

The HP Z240 has one of the faster memory clock speeds (2,133 megahertz) amongst similar spec desktop computers of this age. Personal computers of a comparable age and type to the Z240 have memory clock speeds of between 1,000MHz and 2,400MHz.

Chart Edit

DDR4-SDRAM Internal Memory Type

The HP Z240 has a newer internal memory type than most comparable spec personal computers that have been around for more than a year. This desktop computer has a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type, whereas most medium processor core personal computers that have been around for a comparable time to it have a DDR3-SDRAM internal memory type.

A DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type is actually the best internal memory type across all medium processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to the Z240.

The worst internal memory type across similar types of computer is DDR3-SDRAM.

Quite High System Bus Data Transfer Rate

The lowest system bus data transfer rate of medium processor core personal computers that came out more than a year ago is 5GT/s and the highest is 8GT/s. At 8 Gigatransfers per second, the HP Z240 has a quite high system bus data transfer rate compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Z240.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Maximum Internal Memory

At 64 gigabytes, the HP Z240 has a fairly big maximum internal memory compared to most of the other desktop computers of this age and type. Across all the comparable spec PCs that were released one year ago the maximum internal memory range from 2GB to 260GB.

Chart Edit

Has One Memory Slot

The number of memory slots found on the HP Z240 is more than most desktop computers of a comparable spec and age to it. This desktop computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most frequently found memory slot found on medium processor core personal computers that were released 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 typical of many medium processor core personal computers that have been around for more than a year.

Chart Edit

1 Reason Against

Only HDD Storage Medium

The storage speed of this personal computer is HDD, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that have been available for a similar 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 this PC to all the other HDD personal computers and we think cheaper personal computers such as the Fujitsu W550[plb_3118330_price], and the HP 600 G2[plb_3765201_price] is also worth considering.

If the storage speed of this HP personal computer is too slow for you then you might also want to look at the HP ProDesk 600 G2 MT[plb_3068722_price] (SSD and cheaper), or the DELL 7040 Micro[plb_3139663_price] (SSD and cheaper).
