HP Z840 overview

  • 1Description

Within the Z Series, the Z840 Series Rackable Minitower Workstation from HP delivers extreme performance in a rackable 5U minitower form factor. 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 E5-2640 v3 processors armed with 8 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 3.4 GHz utilizing Intel's Turbo Boost 2.0 technology.

The 16GB 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. This Z840 is able to support eight DIMM slots per processor, for a total of 16 slots. The current 16GB memory configuration is made up of 2 x 8GB modules, which can be upgraded to up to 128GB per slot, for a max total of 2TB. 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, there is a 1TB 7200 rpm SATA hard drive, as well as three 2TB 7200 rpm SATA hard drives, for a total combined storage capacity of 7TB. If you want to add external storage drives or other peripherals, the Z840 features eight USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports, one serial port, and a PS/2 keyboard and mouse port. 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. The dedicated NVIDIA Quadro M4000 graphics card features 8GB of GDDR5 RAM over a 256-bit memory interface with a bandwidth of 192 GB/s and delivers a sharp, clear picture while allowing for a wide range of monitors to be used via its four DisplayPort 1.2 outputs at resolutions up to 4096 x 2160 @ 60 Hz. 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.

The Z840 Rackable Minitower Workstation includes a USB keyboard, a USB mouse, a power cord, and a Windows 7 Pro (64-bit) Restore DVD. While the installed operating system is Windows 7 Professional (64-bit), a Windows 10 Professional (64-bit) license is included at no additional cost.
