HP Z640 Workstation

Configure Your HP Z640 Workstation

  • Processor

    The HP Z640 supports two Intel Xeon E5-2600v3 and E5-2600v4 series processors. The Hyper-Threading support allows two threads to run simultaneously on each core -- Windows recognizes 44 total cores on the Z640, 22 real and 44 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 44 cores it will automatically increase the speed of the core in use and turn off the unused cores.

    The TDP wattage is the power supply consumption from each processor. Some of the higher performance processors consume up to 150w each. We recommend only one high performance processor in the Z640 considering the total power supply output. If you prefer to have two high performance processors, we recommend the HP Z840 since it comes with a higher wattage power supply and supplementary ventilation to support the heat.

    Memory

    The single processor Z640 has 4 DIMM Slots supporting up to 512GB DDR4 ECC Memory.
    The dual processor Z640 has 8 DIMM Slots supporting up to 1TB DDR4 ECC Memory.
    Choose more memory to improve overall system performance.
