The Z640 42328963 Rackable Minitower Workstation (ENERGY STAR) from HP delivers powerful performance in a rackable minitower form factor and is designed for professionals who require high reliability. The Z640 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 3.4 GHz Intel Xeon E5-2643 v3 6-Core processor which will allow you to run multiple applications simultaneously. If you need more power, the CPU can be overclocked to 3.7 GHz using Intel's Turbo Boost technology.
The 16GB of 2133 MHz DDR4 ECC registered RAM allows the computer run multiple applications simultaneously and also to quickly access frequently-used files and programs. The current memory configuration is four 4GB modules occupying the four DIMM slots. If you need to upgrade, this system supports up to 16GB per slot when using ECC registered RAM, or 32GB per slot when using Load Reduced (LR) RAM. 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 SSD offers virtually instant access to your data and faster boot times. If you want to add external storage drives or other peripherals, the Z640 features 8 x USB 3.0 ports and 2 x USB 2.0 ports. For users who wish to add additional components to the drive bays, the Z640 features two internal 3.5" drive bays and two external 5.25" drive bays. The NVIDIA Quadro K4200 graphics card features 4GB of dedicated video memory. It is designed to deliver a sharp, clear picture and allows for a wide range of monitors to be used via its two DisplayPorts and a DVI-I port. 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 Z640 Rackable 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.
