This new workstation from HP is capable of up to 3TB RAM and 48TB of storage
HP just launched their newest Z Workstations that can be upgraded with insane hardware specs. The top-of-the-line model is the Z8, followed by the Z6 and Z4.
Insane amount of expansion
The Z8, which HP touts as “the world’s most powerful workstation”, contains 24 RAM slots that allows you to insert up to 3TB of memory. With that amount of RAM, you can give almost everything to Chrome and still leave a hefty amount for you to work with video editing and Adobe Photoshop. For storage, the Z8 can be upgraded with up to 48 terabytes of space, in case you want to store tons of your study materials in your expensive workstation.
Specification and Features
For the specs, there’s dual Intel Xeon CPUs with up to 56 cores, as well as dual NVIDIA Quadro Pro graphics cards. It also includes Thunderbolt 3 (optional), Dual 1GbE Ports for high bandwidth data transfer, USB 3.1 Type C ports, a new internal design with improved air flow for cooling, a 1700W power supply, and 9 PCIe slots.
But if the Z8 seems too aggressive for you, the lower-end Z6 offers up to 384GB of memory, while the much lower-end Z4 has support for 256GB of RAM and a single Xeon CPU. All of these are running Windows 10 Pro 64-bit as their operating system.
Pricing and Availability
However, the working power you can get here doesn’t come cheap as the Z8 will cost around $2,439 (~PhP121,9K) with the base specs installed — and you’ll need to shell out thousands (around $30k) more to get it up to the maximum specs described above.
The Z8 will be available starting October while the Z6 and Z4 will be available in October and November, respectively, with base prices of $1,919 (~PhP95,9K) and $1,249 (~PhP62,5K), respectively.
