The Z440 Series F1L11 Minitower Workstation from HP delivers powerful performance in a minitower form factor and is designed for professionals who require high reliability. The Z440 is well suited for tasks such as intensive graphics, 3D rendering, multimedia, and gaming, as well as science and engineering applications. The system is powered by a 3.5 GHz Intel Xeon E5-1650 v3 Six-Core processor which will allow you to run multiple applications simultaneously. If you need more power, the CPU can be overclocked to 3.8 GHz using Intel's Turbo Boost 2.0 technology.
The 32GB of 2133 MHz PC4-17000 DDR4 ECC Registered RAM allows the computer to run multiple applications simultaneously and also to access frequently-used files and programs. The current memory configuration is four 8GB modules with an additional four slots available for memory upgrades, making for a total of eight DIMM slots. With all 8 DIMM slots in use, this system supports 128GB RAM, or 16GB per slot. As this RAM features ECC technology, it is able to help detect and correct the most common kinds of internal data corruption. This RAM is also registered and registered memory modules, also known as buffered memory modules, place less electrical loads on the memory controller and allow single systems to remain stable with more memory modules than they would have otherwise.
For long term storage of your files, a 512GB SATA SSD offers quick access to your data. While this SSD may not have the larger storage capacity of a traditional hard drive, it contains no moving parts and is less susceptible to damage from accidental bumps and drops. In addition, having no moving parts also allows SSDs to access data and operate at faster speeds than a traditional hard drive. SSDs also receive less wear and tear because they do not come into contact with read and write heads.
If you want to add external storage drives or other peripherals, the Z440 features 9 x USB 3.0 ports, 3 x USB 2.0 ports, and 2 x PS/2 ports. The topmost USB 3.0 port on the front panel is also a charging port. For users who wish to add additional components to the drive bays, the Z440 features two internal 3.5" drive bays and two external 5.25" drive bays. There is also PCIe and PCI expandability with 5 x PCIe slots and 1 x PCI slot. The dedicated NVIDIA Quadro K4200 graphics card features 4GB of GDDR5 RAM and is designed to deliver a sharp, clear picture while allowing for a wide range of monitors to be used via its dual DisplayPorts and single DVI-I port. The Quadro K4200 is also able to support up to four simultaneous displays. Whether you are listening to music, watching a movie, or playing a game, the integrated Realtek HD ALC221 outputs high definition audio and delivers higher fidelity than standard audio controllers.
The Z440 Series F1L11 Minitower Workstation includes a USB keyboard, a USB mouse, and a power cord. It also features a tool-less expandable design, is 4U rack mountable, supports RAID 0, 1, and 10, and operates on 100 - 240VAC at 50 - 60 Hz.
