The HP Z440 Workstation is HP’s mid to entry-level workstation for professionals working in design, financial analysis, and geology but it will still run circles around your typical PC. Featuring the latest technology, coupled with high-performance graphics support from Nvidia and AMD to help you get the job done with speed and efficiency. While it may not have all of the features supported on the Z640 and Z840 dual processor workstations, it will more than satisfy the majority of workstation users with its impressive performance credentials. This is a great system for CAD professionals working in both 2D and 3D with the addition of a professional graphics card.
The HP Z440 is ISV certified to perform effortlessly running intensive software applications used by design professionals, financial analysts, and geologists. ISV is an acronym for Independent Software Vendor, This means independent software vendors have tested the software, hardware, and components to ensure stable and reliable performance.
You have choices when it comes to processors, which can significantly affect cost. The Z440 features the Intel C612 chipset and supports both the E5-2600 v3 with up to eight cores at speeds of up to 2133MHZ, and the E5-2600 v4 processors with up to four cores and transfer speeds of up to 2400MHz. Both E5-2600 v3 and v4 processors feature integrated PCIe 3.0 controllers. The E5-1600 v3 and E5-1600 v4 processor is also supported with four to eight cores. The system also supports Intel Turbo Boost Technology and Hyper-threading but not with all supported processors.
The single processor supports eight DIMM slots total in four channels for a maximum of 128GB. Only Registered DDR4 DIMMs are supported. DDR3 DIMMs are not supported. Installing more than four memory modules requires the HP Z440 Memory Cooling Solution. Keep in mind, the CPU will determine the speed at which the memory is clocked. To obtain memory speeds of 2400MHz requires an E5-2600 v4 processor and memory that supports this speed. E5-2600 v3 processors are only capable of 2133MHz maximum, and memory modules will run at that speed even if the stated speed is 2400MHz. Memory speed will default to the slowest performer between memory modules and CPUs.
Up to four drives total are supported on the system but the 3rd and fourth drives require a 2:1 5.25-inch external bay adapter, which supports both 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch HDD and SSDs. Both SATA, SAS, SAS Self-Encrypting, and Hybrid HDDs and SSDs are supported on the Z440. There’s also a removable boot drive option and support for up to four optional PCIe Solid State Drives with up to 2TB using a HP Z Turbo Drive Quad Pro. Single and Dual M.2 SSD carriers are also supported. It should be noted that PCIe SSDs are not available with a SAS controller and require the HP 24 Fan and Front Card Guide Kit. You have options for hard drive controllers starting with the integrated SATA 6.0 Gb/s Controller and factory integrated RAID on the motherboard for SATA drives. For RAID support on Linux systems, all drives must be identical in type and capacity. PCIe SSDs cannot be used in a boot RAID configuration.
There are 6 PCI slots on the system board, three PCIe 3.0, two PCIe2.0, and a legacy PCI slot. Here again you have options for increased performance and IO with a range of supported GPUs from both Nvidia and AMD supporting applications from professional 2D graphics to high-end 3D graphic rendering using either Nvidia Quadro or AMD FirePro graphics cards. There’s also support for up to eight displays but that will require two graphics cards that support four monitors each. Other options are PCIe M.2 NVMe drives for super-fast storage, Thunderbolt 2.0, Audio cards, Ethernet and HD controllers. There are also several USB ports for connecting additional external devices.
Power is from either a 525W 85% efficient or 700W 90% efficient power supply (PSU). The 700W PSU is recommended when installing more than one graphics card or to support multiple expansion slots.
The system supports Windows and Linux operating systems, which offer configuration and management options. Intel’s Active Management System 9.1 is included and the HP Performance Advisor to help configure your system for use with your preferred software platform. The system can also be accessed remotely.
This system is an excellent choice supporting many of the same features found on the high-end Z-series models. It offers performance and expansion options at a more reasonable price point that should more than satisfy the vast majority of professional workstation users. The Z440 is highly adaptable and scalable to your changing workload.
