Run 3D simulations and edit 8K video in real time with up to 56 processing cores and the highest memory capacity available 3. Certified for serious software, such as ANSYS or After Effects, you can ideate and iterate more to deliver better work in less time.
Industry-leading design and acoustics
From the inside out, the Z8 is an engineering wonder. The modern exterior provides tool-free access to a clean, modular interior. Strategically placed vents and ducts throughout the system streamline airflow for ultra-quiet performance.
The world's most secure workstations
Advanced security features come standard on every Z8. Rest assured your device, identity and data are safe with security software like HP Client Security Suite and HP Sure Start, the industry's first self-healing BIOS with intrusion detection.
