HP announced the Z210 Workstation, which is available in convertible mini-tower (CMT) or highly compact small form factor (SFF) options for space-constrained environments. The new models replace the Z200 Workstations.
The HP Z210 models, which are ideal for customers in the video editing, MCAD/AEC, education, public sector and image viewing industries, raise the bar for entry-level workstation performance while providing workstation-class reliability at a highly affordable price.
The HP Z210 SFF is 65 percent smaller than the HP Z210 CMT. Both sizes offer the choice of high-performance, enterprise-class Intel Xeon E3 and second-generation Intel Core i3/i5/i7 processors, surpassing PC offerings and increasing overall performance by up to 20 percent over previous-generation processors.
“Built for professionals, HP Z210 workstations with the new Intel Xeon processor E3 1200 family are changing the definition of the entry-level workstation,” said Anthony C. Neal-Graves, general manager, Workstation Unit, Intel Corporation. “This processor's greatest innovation is how it integrates the CPU and graphics engines on the same die. That means visual and 3-D graphics capabilities that were once only available to entry workstation users with discrete graphics cards will now be accessible to anyone with an entry workstation powered by the Intel Xeon E3 family with Intel HD Graphics P3000.3”
The HP Z210 models offer a range of professional graphics options, including 2-D choices from AMD and NVIDIA that incorporate dual graphics card capabilities that support up to four 2-D displays. 3-D choices include next-generation processor-integrated Intel high-definition graphics that lower the entry cost for professional 3-D graphics, and entry and midrange graphics from NVIDIA and AMD.
The HP Z210 Workstations are designed for ease of use, and both form factors feature a tool-free chassis that make them easy to service. Like all HP Workstations, they were engineered with customers in mind and went through rigorous testing and certification with the key professional applications and software vendors that are critical to customer work.
