The Z440 F1M43UT 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 E5-1620 v3 Quad-Core processor which will allow you to run multiple applications simultaneously. If you need more power, the CPU can be overclocked to 3.6 GHz using Intel's Turbo Boost technology.
The 8GB 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 one 8GB module with an additional seven 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 256GB PCIe SSD offers quick access to your data. While this SSD may not have the large storage capacity of a traditional hard drive, it contains no moving parts which helps it to be more resistant against bumps, drops, and other kinds of damage. SSDs also receive less wear and tear than traditional hard drives, as they never 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 USB 2.0 ports, and 2 PS/2 ports. 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. 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. No integrated or dedicated graphics controllers are included with this system, allowing the user to select a GPU of their choice.
The Z440 F1M43UT Minitower Workstation includes a USB keyboard, a USB mouse, and a power cord. While the installed operating system is Windows 7 Professional (64-bit), a Windows 8.1 Professional (64-bit) license is included.
