5 Reasons For

HP Has Good Reviews for Its Computers

HP is one of the better rated PC manufacturers according to average reviews from experts and owners, and HP also has good reviews for its many processor core personal computers.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This PC supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most commonly supported processor operating mode on personal computers of this type and age.

Chart Edit

Very Big Maximum Internal Memory

The maximum internal memory of the HP Z820 of 512 gigabytes is one of the biggest amongst comparable spec computers that were launched more than two years ago. The smallest maximum internal memory of personal computers of a comparable age and spec to the Z820 is 32GB, the biggest is 520GB, and the average maximum internal memory is 140GB.

Chart Edit

Two Ethernet LAN (RJ-45) Ports

The HP Z820 is a two Ethernet LAN (RJ-45) port PC. Most of the other PCs of a similar spec and age to the Z820 only have one Ethernet LAN (RJ-45) port.

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 many processor core personal computers that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

3 Reasons Against

Quite Slow Max Memory Bandwidth Supported Processor

With a max memory bandwidth supported processor of only 51.2 gigabytes per second, the HP Z820 has a fairly slow max memory bandwidth supported processor compared to most of the other many processor core personal computers that were launched around the same time as the Z820. The slowest max memory bandwidth supported processor of many processor core personal computers that were launched around the same time as the Z820 is 32GB/s, the fastest is 68GB/s, and the average max memory bandwidth supported processor is 60GB/s.

Chart Edit

Quite Low System Bus Data Transfer Rate

The average system bus data transfer rate of many processor core personal computers that were released more than two years ago is 8GT/s, and the system bus data transfer rates range from 5GT/s to 9.6GT/s. At only 7.2 Gigatransfers per second, the HP Z820 has a quite low system bus data transfer rate compared to most of the other personal computers that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Maximum Turbo Frequency

With a maximum turbo frequency of only 3.1 gigahertz, the HP Z820 has one of the slower maximum turbo frequencies amongst personal computers of this age. Across all the many processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the Z820 the maximum turbo frequencies range from 2.5GHz to 4GHz.

6 Other reasons to consider the HP Z820

Released Over Two Years Ago

This HP personal computer was released over two years ago.

Average Internal Memory

At 16 gigabytes, the HP Z820 has a pretty average internal memory compared to most of the other personal computers of this spec and age.

Chart Edit

Average Hard Drive Capacity

At 1,000 gigabyte, the HP Z820 has a pretty average hard drive capacity compared to most of the other similar spec PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the Z820.

If you want a computer with a bigger hard drive capacity then you might want to look at the Lenovo P700 (2TB).

Average Total Storage Capacity

The HP Z820 has a pretty average total storage capacity (1,000 gigabyte) compared to most of the other similar spec PCs that have been around for more than two years.

Chart Edit

HDD Storage Medium

The HP Z820 has a faster storage speed than most computers of a comparable age and type to it. This desktop computer has an HDD storage medium, whereas most many processor core personal computers that were released more than two years ago have a Flash storage medium. 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

Average Processor Clock Speed

At 2.6 gigahertz, the HP Z820 has a relatively standard processor clock speed compared to most of the other PCs of this age and type.
