    Processor

    The Z620 supports Intel Xeon E5-2600v1 and E5-2600v2 series processors. The Hyper-Threading support allows two threads to run simultaneously on each core -- Windows recognizes 24 total cores on this unit, 12 real and 12 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 24 cores it will automatically increase the speed of the core in use and turn off the unused cores.

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

    We are proud to offer the Intel Xeon E5-2696v2 2.5GHz 12-core processor at a spectacular price due to our volume pricing.

    Flash NVMe Storage

    The Z620 supports booting off PCIe which provides tremendously faster options than the SATA3. We offer the latest HP Z Turbo Drives featuring the Samsung NVMe Flash Storage and Intel Enterprise Class SSD.

    • SATA 3 SSD: 500MB/s
    • Single PCIe NVMe Flash Storage: 1,500MB/s
    • RAID PCIe NVMe Flash Storage: 2,500MB/s up to 7,000MB/s

    By default, the operating system will be installed on this drive. Since these drives are super fast, you can edit from the primary drive as well.

    HP Z Turbo Drive (NVMe Flash) more info

    The HP Z Turbo Drive is a PCIe 3.0 mount that carries a Samsung NVMe flash storage drive.

    • HP typyically uses the 2015/2016 model SM951 which performs at about 1200MB/s Write and 1800MB/s Read.
    • We typically use the current 2016/2017 model SM961 which performs at about 1750MB/s Write and 2500MB/s Read.

    Upon request, we can divide one drive into two partitions if you would like to have two operating systems for different purposes.

    HP Z Turbo Drive Quad Pro (NVMe Flash RAID) more info

    The HP Z Turbo Drive Quad Pro Card integrates up to four Samsung SM951/SM961 NVMe SSD modules into one PCIe x16 card. This card is configured with two, three or four 256GB, 512GB, or 1TB modules providing a max capacity of 4TB.

    Windows 10 cannot be installed on a PCIe RAID partition. If you select the HP Quad Pro, the first drive will be a separate single partition. If you want all four drives to be part of a RAID, please contact us.

    Two drives:

    • First drive for the operating system
    • Second drive for editing / data
    • Each drive to perform at 1,200MB/s Write | 1,800MB/s Read

    Three drives:

    • First drive for the operating system (1200MB/s Write | 1800MB/s Read)
    • Second and third drive in RAID 0 stripe configuration for high speed editing / data (2,500MB/s Write | 3,500MB/s Read)
    • We can install a combination of drives. For example, one 256GB for the operating system and two 1TB drives for the editing RAID.
    • Please contact us for this setup.

    Four drives:

    • First drive for the operating system (1200MB/s Write | 1800MB/s Read)
    • Drives two, three, and four in RAID 0 stripe configuration for high speed editing / data (3,500MB/s Write | 4,500MB/s Read)

    Notes:

    • Upon request, we can arrange drives in RAID 1 mirror configuration for redundancy / back up.
    • The purpose of RAID 0 (stripe RAID) is performance. Two or three drives are partitioned together to achieve maximal read and write speeds which is excellent for editing. However, since the data is split across all the drives, RAID 0 offers no fault tolerance - if any of the constituent drives fails, the RAID unit fails. Thus, it is vital to back up all data when using a stripe RAID 0 array.
    • Since these drives offer optimal performance at a higher cost, we recommend using it to edit from. In addition, have high capacity standard hard drives as a backup / data storage.

    Hard Drive / SSD - Bay 1

    The Z620 has 3x 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.

    Hard Drive / SSD - Bay 3

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

    Optical Bay 1 (Upper)

    The Z620 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.

    Graphics Card (Primary)

    The Z620 mainboard has 2x PCIe Gen3 x16 slots available for the highest performing graphics cards and/or accelerators.

    If more than one of the same graphics card is selected, we will include and install the SLI Bridge by default.

    Quadro Kepler (Second Gen)

    Quadro Maxwell (Third Gen)

    GTX Maxwell (Second Gen)

    GTX Pascal (Third Gen)

    Graphics Card (Secondary)

    Choose an optional second graphics card. Note that graphics cards work independently of each other. The benefit if a second graphics card is to support more displays or if you plan to perform multiple rendering or performance tasks at the same time. If you wish to have two cards working together to increase performance, choose a NVIDIA Quadro graphics card plus a NVIDIA Tesla graphics accelerator. The NVIDIA Tesla cards work in conjunction of the Quadro as computing processors.

    Graphics Accelerator

    GPU-accelerated computing is the use of a graphics processing unit (GPU) together with a CPU to accelerate scientific, analytics, engineering, consumer, and enterprise applications. GPU-accelerated computing offers application performance by offloading compute-intensive portions of the application to the GPU, while the remainder of the code still runs on the CPU. From a user's perspective, applications simply run significantly faster.

    "Solve your most demanding High-Performance Computing (HPC) challenges with NVIDIA Tesla family of GPUs. They’re built on the NVIDIA Kepler™ compute architecture and powered by NVIDIA CUDA®, the world’s most pervasive parallel computing model. This makes them ideal for delivering record acceleration and more efficient compute performance for big data applications in fields including seismic processing; computational biology and chemistry; weather and climate modeling; image, video and signal processing; computational finance, computational physics; CAE and CFD; and data analytics." -NVIDIA
