Chart Edit

Two CPUs Configuration (max)

The HP Z840 takes more CPUs configuration (max) than most of the many processor core personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Z840. This HP desktop computer is a personal computer that takes two CPUs configuration (max) compared to most of the similar spec desktop computers that are a comparable age to the Z840 which only take one CPU configuration (max).

Chart Edit

Very Fast Max Memory Bandwidth Supported Processor

The max memory bandwidth supported processor of personal computers of this spec and age range from 32GB/s to 68GB/s, and the average max memory bandwidth supported processor is 60GB/s. With a max memory bandwidth supported processor of 68 gigabytes per second, the HP Z840 has one of the fastest max memory bandwidth supported processor amongst personal computers of this age.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Max Internal Memory Supported Processor

The smallest max internal memory supported processor of computers that are a comparable age to the Z840 is 64GB and the biggest is 770GB. With a max internal memory supported processor of 768 gigabytes, the HP Z840 has one of the bigger max internal memory supported processors amongst similar spec PCs of this age.

Chart Edit

Fairly Fast Memory Clock Speed Supported by Processor

Across all the PCs of a comparable age and spec to the Z840 the memory clock speeds supported by processors range from 800MHz to 1,600MHz, and the average memory clock speed supported by processor is 1,100MHz. With a memory clock speed supported by processor of 1,600 megahertz, the HP Z840 has a fairly fast memory clock speed supported by processor compared to most of the other many processor core personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Z840.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Total Storage Capacity

The total storage capacity of similar spec personal computers that have been available for a comparable time to the Z840 range from 180GB to 8.3TB, and the average total storage capacity is 800GB. At 1,000 gigabyte, the HP Z840 has a fairly big total storage capacity compared to most of the other desktop computers of a similar spec and age to the Z840.

If this computer total storage capacity is too small for you then you might want to consider the Lenovo P700 (2TB).

Chart Edit

Has One Memory Slot

The HP Z840 has a greater number of memory slots than most many processor core personal computers that came out more than two years ago. The most commonly found memory slot is 4x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this computer. The memory slots 8x DIMM are also found on this personal computer.

Chart Edit

DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type

The optical drive type of this PC is DVD Super Multi, which is typical of many many processor core personal computers that are a similar age to it.

Chart Edit

4 Reasons Against

Quite Slow Processor Clock Speed

Across all the many processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to the Z840 the processor clock speeds range from 1.6GHz to 3.7GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 2.9GHz. At only 2.3 gigahertz, the HP Z840 has a fairly slow processor clock speed compared to most of the other many processor core personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the Z840.

Chart Edit

Only Two USB 2.0 Ports

The HP Z840 is a two USB 2.0 port personal computer. Most of the other personal computers of this age and spec have between two and nine USB 2.0 ports.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Maximum Turbo Frequency

The slowest maximum turbo frequency of comparable spec personal computers that came out around the same time as the Z840 is 2.5GHz and the fastest is 4GHz. The HP Z840 has one of the slower maximum turbo frequencies (only 3 gigahertz) amongst personal computers of this age.

Chart Edit

Heavy
