This B&H Custom Workstation combines the HP Z640 Rackable Minitower Workstation with 32GB of 2400 MHz DDR4 ECC Registered RAM, an HP Quadro P4000 graphics card, and B&H installation services.
HP Z640 Rackable Minitower Workstation
The Z640 Rackable Minitower Workstation from HP delivers powerful performance in a 4U 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, and multimedia, as well as science and engineering applications. The system is powered by dual 2.1 GHz Intel Xeon E5-2620 v4 processors armed with eight cores on each CPU, for a total of 16 cores. There is also 20MB of Intel Smart Cache per processor, for a total of 40MB. These processors, cores, and cache 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 3.0 GHz utilizing Intel's Turbo Boost 2.0 technology.
The 16GB of 2400 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 two 8GB modules occupying two of the eight DIMM slots. If you need to upgrade, this system supports up to 16GB per slot when using 2133 MHz ECC registered RAM, 32GB per slot when using 2133 MHz Load Reduced (LR) RAM, or 32GB per slot when using 2400 MHz ECC registered 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, this system is equipped with a 256GB Z Turbo Drive G2 PCIe SSD, which allows quick access to your data. While the SSD may not have the larger storage capacity of a traditional spinning disk, 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 there are no read and write heads. Additionally, as this SSD connects via PCIe as compared to SATA, it is able to operate with even greater data transfer speeds. It provides sequential reads up to 2,150 MB/s and sequential writes up to 1,260 MB/s.
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. No integrated or dedicated graphics controllers are included with this system, allowing the user to select a dedicated graphics card of their choice. 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 operates using a 925W power supply that runs using 100-240 VAC at 50-60 Hz. Included is a USB keyboard, a USB mouse, a power cord, and restore/recovery media. While the installed operating system is Windows 7 Professional (64-bit), a Windows 10 Professional (64-bit) license is included.

HP 1ME40AT Quadro P4000 Graphics Card
Designed for efficient CAD, professional programming, VR production, and video editing and processing, the HP Quadro P4000 Graphics Card is based on NVIDIA's 16nm Pascal architecture. The GPU itself features 1792 CUDA cores coupled to 8GB of VRAM with a 256-bit memory bus providing a maximum of 5.3 TFLOPS of single-precision computing power. Using supported APIs and CUDA, that computing performance can translate into high resolution and realistic real-time 2D and 3D graphics rendering or improved computing speed with hardware acceleration.
The output panel on this card features four DisplayPort terminals. Up to four monitors can be simultaneously supported by a single card, without any extra hardware, to create high-resolution video walls with your workstation or for more desktop real-estate to increase productivity. DisplayPort 1.4 support allows this card to drive UHD 5K displays as well. Included with the card is one DisplayPort to DVI-D SL adapter for connecting to legacy displays. Other separately available adapters can be used with this card to drive other kinds of displays and projectors.
For cooling, an active fansink cooler uses a radial fan to force air through the card's heatsink, dissipating heat from the GPU and other internal components. This cooling configuration is best suited for cases with unrestricted airflow.
