HP has announced the latest iteration of its workstation and it packs a lot of power. The new Z workstations have been developed with product designers, architects, digital creators, scientists, educators, healthcare workers, and financial traders in mind, but could also be a good fit for home-based content creators who value processing power more than anything else.

The flagship of the Z workstations is the HP Z820. The Z8 packs in two Intel Skylake-SP processors, with twinned Xeon Platinum 8180 chips: 28 cores/56 threads and 38.5MB cache each running at 2.5-3.8GHz, along with support for up to 1.5TB RAM. Those processors and memory can be combined with up to three Nvidia Quadro P6000 GPUs or AMD Radeon Pro WX 9100 parts. The desktop system has four internal drive bays, two external (and a third external for an optical drive), and nine PCIe slots. Storage options include up to 4TB of PCIe-mounted SSD, and 48TB of spinning disks. A range of gigabit and 10 Gigabit Ethernet adapters are available; the machine also supports 802.11a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.2. Thunderbolt 3 is available with an add-in card. HP says that novel ducting ensures a second CPU is cooled with fresh air rather than recycled (warm) air from the first CPU’s ducting.
