HP G4 Mini Overview

  • 1Description

Whether undertaking graphics-intensive designs in 2D or 3D CAD, or running multiple applications at once, the Z2 G4 Mini Workstation from HP delivers next-level performance for architects, creative professionals, education labs, and more. It has the ability to support single- and multi-threaded software, and is certified for Bentley MicroStation, AutoDesk AutoCAD, GRAPHISOFT ARCHICAD, Vectorworks, Autodesk Revit, and SolidWorks, along with Adobe titles including InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator, Lightroom, and XD. With flexible configuration and deployment options, it is a solid choice for modern workspaces and at 2.28" high, it is 1/4 the size of the Z2 Small Form Factor system. Using the separately sold VESA mounting sleeve, the Z2 G4 Mini can be secured under your desk or behind your monitor, and can also be mounted in racks for virtualized installations.

The system is powered by a 3.2 GHz Intel Core i7-8700 Six-Core processor that will allow you to run multiple applications simultaneously and can be boosted up to 4.6 GHz. The 32GB of 2666 MHz DDR4 RAM helps to ensure smooth multitasking and also allows the computer to quickly access frequently used files and programs. While the current memory configuration is 2 x 16GB, there are two 260-pin SO-DIMM memory slots that will allow the RAM to be upgraded to 32GB, using a 16GB chip in each of the two slots.

For storage of your files, the 512GB Z Turbo Drive G2 PCIe SSD has an M.2 2280 form factor, uses the PCIe 3.0 x4 bus, and offers quick access to your data. For additional internal storage, there is an empty 2.5" / 9.5mm drive bay for a SATA hard drive or SSD. If you want to add external storage drives or other peripherals, the Z2 Mini G4 features two 10 Gb/s USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C ports and four USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A ports, with one of the Type-A ports doubling as a charging port. The dedicated NVIDIA Quadro P1000 graphics card has 4GB of GDDR5 RAM, delivers a sharp, clear picture, and features three DisplayPort 1.2 outputs which support a maximum resolution of 4096 x 2160 @ 60 Hz. Whether you are listening to music, watching a movie, or playing a game, the integrated Conexant CX20632 5.1 audio codec outputs high definition audio and delivers higher fidelity than standard audio controllers.

The Z2 Mini G4 Workstation includes a USB keyboard, a USB mouse, and a power cord. It runs using a 230W external power supply that is 89% efficient and operates using 100-240 VAC at 47-63 Hz. The installed operating system is Windows 10 Pro (64-bit).

Gigabit Ethernet & Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac)
The system uses an integrated Intel I219-LM PCIe Gigabit controller for internet access when connected to a router, modem, or network switch. It also features Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 9560, which is compatible with 802.11a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi so that users may access network connectivity using 2.4 or 5 GHz wireless technologies. The wireless module is installed in a M.2 2230 slot, which uses a PCIe 3.0 x1 interface.
Bluetooth 5.0
Additional compatible peripherals, such as mice, keyboards, headsets, and more may be paired using Bluetooth 5.0 technology.
2 x USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C | 4 x USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A
The Z2 Mini G4 features two 10 Gb/s USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C ports and four USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A ports that will allow you to connect external peripherals such as hard drives, printers, and memory card readers. These fast speeds mean you can spend less time waiting and more time focusing on the task at hand.
3 x DisplayPort 1.2 Outputs
The three DisplayPort 1.2 outputs are able to support up to four directly-connected displays, and the system can support up to six displays when using a combination of Intel UHD graphics, discrete graphics, and Windows 10. Intermixing integrated Intel UHD graphics and discrete graphics cards to drive more than three displays can be enabled using the Computer (F10) Setup Utility. However, HP recommends using only discrete graphics when four or fewer displays are required to be supported.

Multiple displays daisy chained from one DisplayPort 1.2 output requires DisplayPort 1.2 MST capable displays or a DisplayPort 1.2 MST capable hub. When using one display, the maximum supported resolution is 4096 x 2160 @ 60 Hz, and this drops to 2560 x 1600 @ 60 Hz when two displays are used. When using four displays, the maximum supported resolution is 1920 x 1200 @ 60 Hz.
Up to 32GB RAM
Two 260-pin SO-DIMM slots support up to 32GB of non-ECC Unbuffered 2666 MHz DDR4 memory.

Windows 10

Start Menu
After its hiatus in Windows 8, the Start Menu has returned. Utilizing a combination of the traditional menu system and Windows 8's Live Tiles, the improved Start Menu gives you more information at a glance, showing notification information alongside your applications and other pinned items.
Microsoft's digital personal assistant, Cortana can answer your questions with information gleaned from both your device and the internet at large. You can type or even talk with her, if your system has a microphone. Using her Notebook, Cortana keeps track of your needs and wants, and she learns over time to improve her information gathering skills.
Microsoft Edge
After nearly 20 years, Microsoft has finally replaced its Internet Explorer web browser. With Microsoft Edge, users can write directly on web pages and share notes with friends and colleagues. It also improves the online reading experience by adding a distraction-free mode and read-it-later functionality. Edge also has built-in Cortana integration; you can have her help you find a restaurant, make a reservation, and pull up directions without leaving your browser.
Windows Store
For Windows 10, Microsoft has unified the Windows Store. Now, apps for PCs, tablets, and phones will all be accessible from one place. And with support for Universal Apps, one version of an app can work across all your compatible devices automatically.
Windows Continuum
Windows 10 was designed for a variety of screen sizes and input styles, and with its Continuum feature, it automatically adapts to fit your needs. A Windows 10 tablet on its own requires a touch-centric approach, but attaching a mouse and keyboard will shift everything to a more traditional interface. You can even attach an external monitor to your Windows 10 phone for a near-desktop experience. But it's not just the operating system; Windows Universal Apps take advantage of Continuum as well.
Xbox on Windows 10
Gaming is a big focus of Windows 10. Xbox integration allows for PC players to match up against Xbox One players on supported games, and if you have an Xbox One, you can even stream compatible titles to your PC. Native support for recording with the new Game DVR feature makes it easy to capture and share your gameplay. The new DirectX12 takes better advantage of multi-core processors, giving games a performance boost, even on older hardware. Windows 10 also features native support for virtual reality headsets, such as the Oculus Rift.
Windows 10 Pro
The Pro version of Windows 10 includes all of the features of Windows 10 Home plus many designed specifically for business users, including Hyper-V virtualization, BitLocker disk encryption, and remote desktop access. Devices will also be able to join domains and the Azure Active Directory, and they can even access a specialized version of the Windows Store featuring custom, company-specific applications.
