Within the Z Series, the Z840 Series Rackable Minitower Workstation from HP delivers extreme performance in a rackable 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 a 2.4 GHz Intel Xeon E5-2630 v3 8-Core processor, which will allow you to run multiple applications simultaneously and provide significant performance gains when running multi-threaded tasks. If more power is needed, the CPU can deliver extra performance by increasing its clock speed up to 3.2 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 16 DIMM slots and the current 16GB memory configuration is made up of 4 x 4GB modules, which can be upgraded to up to 128GB per slot for a total of 2TB of 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 load 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 1TB 7200 rpm SATA hard drive 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. The dedicated NVIDIA Quadro K5200 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 dual DisplayPort ports, single Dual-Link DVI-I port, and single Dual-Link DVI-D port. 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 Series Rackable Minitower Workstation is powered by an 1125W power supply and includes a USB keyboard, a USB mouse, and a power cord. While the installed operating system is Windows 7 Pro (64-bit), a Windows 8.1 Professional downgrade license is included.
