HP Z640 Workstation - System Overview

Description

The Z640 Workstation is designed for compute-intensive applications like complex imaging, CAD, finance, research, and geologic exploration. Boasting more customization options than previous Z models, the system can be easily upgraded to meet user-specific needs. New features include better expandability, greater throughput speeds and efficiency, tool-free component upgrades, and integrated handles. HP calls this system "Whisper Quiet", with acoustical levels at about what you would expect in a library.

Performance

For workstation performance, the Z640 is HP's mid-range workstation, sitting just below the powerful Z840 Workstation. The system supports the Intel Xeon E5-2600 and E5-1600 v3 and v4 processors, including the top of the line E5-2699 v4 processor with 55MB cache supporting 22 cores—using two E5-2699 processors, that's 44 cores! With the Z640, users can start out with just one processor and quickly scale by adding a CPU riser card supporting a second processor and 4 additional memory slots. Hyper-Threading, Turbo boost, and Thunderbolt technology also guarantee faster performance.

Memory

The system supports HP's DDR4 SmartMemory with memory speeds of up to 2400MHz. However, to achieve memory speeds of 2400MHz requires a suitable processor to support the desired memory speed. Only Registered and Load-Reduced memory modules are supported but cannot be mixed. Non-Uniform Memory Allocation (NUMA) is also supported enabling users to mix and match memory modules of different capacities. In a dual processor configuration a maximum capacity of 256GB is available when loaded with 32GB LR DIMMs or 128GB using Registered DIMMs and 16GB modules.

Storage

The Z640 supports a hefty 16TB of storage using enterprise-class SATA HDDs and RAID configurations 0, 1, 10, and 5 with built-in RAID support. With two AHCI controllers, you get enhanced storage operation and a complete array of recent innovations that includes HP's Performance Advisor, Turbo Drive, TRIM command support for SSDs and Native command queuing. These innovations create meaningful performance benefits such as auto-optimized command execution, automated configurations and updates to make your life easier. TRIM for SSDs extends longevity, while Turbo Drive reduces bottlenecks leading to quicker boot up, faster rendering of graphics or video, and speedier results of mega sized calculations. An additional terabyte of storage can be installed using the optional PCIe HP Z Turbo Drive G2 SSD, which will take up one or two of the PCie 3.0 x4 slots. The Optional PCIe SSDs can also be used for faster boot up.

Expansion

This workstation features six PCI slots total with a mix of 3.0, 2.0 and one legacy slot for older cards. PCI Express 3.0 technology enables superior performance and improved I/O bandwidth while also diminishing latency. 4 USB 3.0 ports on the front and 4 in the rear, support additional media cards, storage, or power charging for external devices. A second CPU can be installed without tools using an optional CPU riser and easily clips in place by hand to provide up to 18 more cores and support for 128GB more RAM. The Z640 features HP's Thunderbolt Technology that processes data astoundingly fast for use with additional graphics cards from Nvidia and AMD including Nvidia's Quadro K6000 GPU. For high performance computing Nvidia's Tesla K40 Workstation coprocessor is also supported. Depending on your choice of video card, the Z640 supports multiple monitors, 4k video display, and simultaneous capture, along with 20GB/s data throughput in each direction.

Management

Managing the Z640 is made easy by the Performance Advisor which automates updates and new configurations. Intel's Active Management Technology that increases the efficiency of network synchronizations. Remote configuration and graceful shutdown is supported.

Summary

The HP Z640 is a peak performance workstation built to adapt to your changing your needs. Users can start out with just one processor for a reasonable entry-level price and easily scale to a two processor configuration using the optional CPU riser card. Substantial compute and graphics power is packed into a very quiet and efficient tower form factor that's also 4U rack mountable. Loaded with dual Intel Xeons will maximize your output and enable up to eight displays. The system is also ISV certified to deliver peak performance with your prgrams of choice.
