HP Expands Workstation Series to Include Desk-side, Mobile and Small Form Factor Models

PALO ALTO, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — March 23, 2010 — HP (NYSE: HPQ) today unveiled workstation offerings that include the first small form factor workstation to be available in every region of the world, multicore processor updates to its Z Workstation series and a mobile workstation with DreamColor display technology.

  • Adding to the award-winning HP Z Workstation series, the HP Z200 SFF Workstation delivers workstation performance and reliability in a sleek, ultracompact and affordable package, and is a great choice for space-constrained environments including the health care, engineering, education, financial and original equipment manufacturer markets.
  • New six-core, 32nm Intel® Xeon® 5600 series processors are now available on HP Z800, Z600 and Z400 workstations, which deliver greater parallel processing performance.
  • Dressed in a gunmetal anodized-aluminium finish, the HP EliteBook 8740w Mobile Workstation is HP’s most powerful mobile workstation to date. It delivers advanced graphics and performance capabilities, along with the ability to produce accurate, predictable and consistent color through its HP DreamColor display.

“HP has invested in research and development through the economic downturn, innovating on top of our industry-leading workstations to provide an undeniably differentiated experience in our new products,” said Jim Zafarana, vice president and general manager, Workstations Global Business Unit, HP. “HP customers are famous for pushing the limits of innovation, and as their industries undergo digital transformations, their next generation of breakthroughs is being powered by HP technology.”

Workstation performance in an ultracompact package

With a starting price rivalling those of traditional desktop computers, the HP Z200 SFF breaks new ground with a space-saving design that is almost two-thirds smaller than the Z200 minitower workstation. Tapping the power of Intel’s newest technologies, the HP Z200 SFF offers dual-core processor options based on the new Intel CoreTM i3 and i5 series, as well as quad-core processor options based on the enterprise-class Intel Xeon 3400 series.(1)

The HP Z200 SFF supports up to 16 gigabytes (GB) of ECC memory(2,3) and up to 2 terabytes (TB)(4) of high-speed storage. It also includes professional 2-D and 3-D graphics options. In addition, the HP Z200 SFF is designed for ease of use and serviceability – with a tool-less chassis, convenient USB ports located on the front of the system and a FireWire® 1394a card option.

The HP Z200 SFF Workstation includes an 89 percent efficient power supply, has ENERGY STAR® 5.0 qualified configurations and is registered as Electronics Products Environmental Assessment Tool (EPEAT®) Gold, the highest rating available.

Greater parallelism for “megatasking”

Ideal for multithreaded workstation applications such as engineering, 3-D digital content creation, oil and gas, and science, HP Z Workstations with the new Intel Xeon Processor 5600 series offer up to 12 cores with integrated memory controllers, Intel Turbo Boost Technology(5) and Intel Hyper-Threading(6) Technology.

Available on the HP Z800, Z600 and Z400 workstations, the new processors allow for up to 24 threads to run at one time when using two 6-core processors with Hyper-Threading turned on.

The HP Z Workstations offer a variety of options for every need:

  • The HP Z800 offers the latest Intel Xeon 5500 and 5600 series processors, providing up to 12 processing cores, up to 192 GB of ECC memory, up to 10 TB of high-speed storage and up to dual NVIDIA Quadro FX 5800 graphics.
  • The HP Z600 also offers Intel Xeon 5500 and 5600 series processors with up to 12 processing cores. It additionally provides up to 48 GB of ECC memory, up to 6 TB of high-speed storage, and professional 2-D and 3-D graphics up to NVIDIA Quadro FX 4800 or dual NVIDIA Quadro FX 1800 graphics.
  • The HP Z400 offers up to six processing cores using the latest Intel Xeon 3500 series processors, providing up to 24 GB of ECC memory, up to 8 TB of high-speed storage and up to NVIDIA Quadro FX 4800 or dual NVIDIA Quadro FX 1800 graphics.

“The new Intel Xeon Processor 5600 series runs multithreaded workstation applications up to 45 percent faster than its predecessor, the Intel Xeon Processor 5500 series,” said Anthony Neal-Graves, general manager, Workstations, Intel. “Workstations powered by the new Intel Xeon Processor 5600 series give application developers the reliability, capacity and performance to help them bring innovative ideas to life faster than ever before.”
