Like all HP workstations, the Z620 is designed to satisfy the ever-growing demands of professionals who work with large and complex datasets, complex 3D models, require multiple displays, or for businesses that just need a high-performance and reliable system for their employees. The HP Z620 Workstation is quoted to having four times the memory capacity compared to last generation systems, a larger power supply, and support for single- or dual-socket processor configurations. It is also equipped with (up to) 24 discrete processor cores, making the Z620 seems quite a powerhouse when it comes to computing and visualization horsepower. It offers all of this while having an unobtrusive build and footprint as well as producing very little noise when the workstation is doing its thing.
Looking deeper into the HP Z620’s technical specifications show some impressive hardware and support, including its compatibility for both Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 v2 and E5-1600 v2 families for a grand total of 27 different processors. Additionally, it also supports up to 192GB of the latest generation of system memory with 12 DIMM slots as well as integrated 1866MHz DDR3 memory subsystem, allowing the Z620 to be optimized for a 64-bit environment. As far as its power consumption goes, the new HP workstation uses and leverages an 800W 90% efficient power supply, which is ideal for high-end graphics cards if users choose to go that route. The HP Z620 also comes standard with 4x USB 3.0 ports as well as a 1-port Thunderbolt 2 and an HP IEEE 1394b FireWire PCIe cards. Users can also customize their HP Z620 Workstation with multiple different SATA and SAS RAID configuration options that support a variety of high-performance, high capacity storage solutions.
