Within the Z Series, the Z840 42353841 Rackable Minitower Workstation from HP delivers extreme performance in a rackable minitower form factor. This model of the HP Z840 series of workstations does not come with a graphics card, which allows you to customize it with your own. Once a dedicated GPU is installed, the Z840 is designed for professionals who require high reliability and 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 two 2.6 GHz Intel Xeon E5-2697 v3 processors armed with 14 cores on each CPU, which will allow you to run multiple applications simultaneously and provide significant performance gains when running multi-threaded tasks. If you need more power, the CPU can deliver extra performance by increasing the clock speed up to 3.6 GHz utilizing Intel's Turbo Boost 2.0 technology.
The 64GB of 2133 MHz DDR4 ECC Registered RAM allows the computer to run multiple applications simultaneously and also to quickly access frequently-used files and programs. The current memory configuration is four 16GB modules with an additional twelve slots available for memory upgrades, making for a total of sixteen DIMM slots. 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 480GB SATA SSD offers quick access to your data. If you want to add external storage drives or other peripherals, the Z840 features a Thunderbolt 2 port, eight USB 3.0 ports, and two USB 2.0 ports. For users who wish to add additional components to the drive bays, the Z840 features four 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 IDT 92HD94 audio controller outputs high definition audio and delivers higher fidelity than standard audio controllers.
