HP Z240 and Z240 SFF the latest in the award-winning line
Palo Alto, Calif., Sept. 29, 2015 – HP today announced the HP Z240 Tower and Z240 SFF Workstations with next generation Intel® processors and HP Z Turbo Drive options, raising the bar for entry-level workstations, while providing the reliability of a workstation at the price point of a desktop PC.
The Z240 is the latest update to the world’s No. 1 ranked entry-level workstation, the HP Z230.(1) As HP’s most affordable workstation, the Z240 is ideal for customers in the video editing, MCAD/AEC, education, public sector and image viewing industries.
“In anticipation of a customer demand for smaller yet powerful workstations, HP created the world’s first small form factor workstation, the HP Z200 SFF,” said Jim Zafarana, vice president and general manager, Workstations and Thin Clients, HP. “The latest in that line, the HP Z240, not only continues to provide customers a compact, affordable solution packed with the power of a traditional workstation, but it ups the ante for entry-level workstations with increased performance and new innovations.”
As the market share-leading workstation vendor, HP has integrated seven new innovations on the HP Z240 Workstations.
Leveraging innovations originally created for the higher-end HP Z Workstations, the HP Z240 offers more performance, greater storage capacity, more IO and greater flexibility of the previous generations while retaining the same form factor. At 57 percent smaller than the tower, the HP Z240 SFF conserves space and maintains workstation performance.
The Z240 features up to 64 GB DDR4 ECC memory – a 100 percent increase in memory capacity compared to previous generations -- for no compromise capacity, performance and reliability. The expanded memory options allow customers to push the limits of design to create larger, more complex models/designs that require larger memory footprints. It also provides customers with more expandability options.
The HP Z240 Tower and Z240 SFF offer a choice of future Intel® Xeon® processor E3-1200 v5 product families, Intel® Core™, or Intel® Pentium™ processors(3) and two ultra-fast HP Z Turbo Drive G2. The HP Z Turbo Drive allows workstation users to super-charge productivity and creativity of workflows. The Z240 offers a choice of Windows 7, Windows 10(4) or Linux® operating systems.
