HP Z600 Workstation

Configure Your HP Z600 Workstation

  • Processor

    The Z600 supports two 64-bit Intel Xeon 'Westmere' 6-core processors onboard. The 'Westmere' processor supports Hyper-Threading which allows two threads to run simultaneously on each core -- so the operating system recognizes 12 cores per processor, 6 real and 6 virtual. It also supports "Turbo Boost" which automatically boosts the processor speed based on workload - so if an application is only using one of the 6 cores it will automatically increase the speed of the core in use and turn off the unused cores.

    Z Workstations installs only final release, legitimate, in production processors. We never use engineering sample (ES) processors.


    The Z600 has 6 DIMM Slots for DDR3 ECC Registered Memory; 3 slots for the initial processor and another 3 slots for the optional processor. The unit supports up to 48GB memory per processor.

    Hard Drive / SSD - Bay 1

    The Z600 has 2x internal 3.5" SATA3 (6GB/s) bays. You can arrange any combination of hard drives or solid-state drives.

    Z Workstations stocks only brand new HGST and Western Digital hard drives, and brand new Samsung solid-state drives.

    Hard Drive / SSD - Bay 2

    Configure the second drive bay with an additional hard drive or solid-state drive.

    Optical Bay 1 (Upper)

    The Z600 chassis has two 5.25" bays to be used for optical drives, hard drives, or solid-state drives. One DVD Burner drive that burns and plays both CDs and DVDs comes standard.

    Since hard drives are 3.5" and solid-state drives are 2.5", the drive adapters are included in the listed price.
