Desktop PCs have been great forever as they give you many flexibility as well as power. They are able to give you a lot more processing power for your money. They render you more features and flexibility and ability to perform your tasks with efficiency and on time. They make people able to get by with a standard build for surfing the web, editing documents, and light gaming. A standard desktop PC is enough potential to perform your regular tasks, but what if you have to use your PC for some crucial and serious work, and you want it as fast as possible. You will need more power if you’re a graphics designer, like a 3D artist or a CAD designer, or you work with huge data sets. In this scenario, it will be better if you look at getting a workstation.
With a focus on performance and reliability, Workstations differ from PCs in a few key ways. These systems may be able to perform demanding tasks for long periods of time. Means if you are dependent on them, they must be able of completing the job if in case you need to set to a workstation to render overnight. Though there are many features and flexibility which set workstations apart from ordinary desktop PCs and even gaming PCs, but reliability is one of the key differences. Workstations are usually built with more durable parts, have optimized GPUs, SSDs for faster and more dependable performance, CPUs with multiple cores, and to last longer.
Traditional workstations are massive towers so they take up a lot of desk space and with the increasing workload, they may also run hot and become loud. HP focused on these issues and brought the HP Z2 Mini G3. HP is doing great and has been on a roll with amazing new PC designs. Recently, users have witnessed its Pavilion model’s Wave with expandable snap-on modules and which looks more like a fabric-clad speaker, and the Elite Slice. And now, it has come up with the Z2 Mini, which is a workstation that literally fits in your palm. Though, the HP Z2 Mini G3 workstation may be small in size, but it packs a punch and is certified for real work
The Z2 Mini was specifically designed for professionals and assuming the nature of their jobs. It is specifically designed for graphic designers, professionals who work with massive data sets, 3D artists, engineers, and for those users who will appreciate and trade on its thoughtful design and specifications. Its small size doesn’t compromise on its work capability and capacity. It performed great while testing it for thousands of hours. It is certified for use with more than 20 professional applications, including Auto CAD, Solid works and Vector works. For demanding 3D modeling and rendering, the Z2 Mini can be outfitted with NVIDIA’s Quadro M620 GPU with 2GB of GDDR5 memory.
For workstation performance, the workstation can be configured with existing and next generation Intel Core and Intel Xeon CPUs. The Z2 Mini has the capacity to get equipped with up to 32GB of DDR4 RAM, which is more than enough for most professionals, and for rapid boot up, file loading and app response times, it has a 1.5TB HP Z Turbo Drive SSD. The Z2 Mini is the world’s smallest workstation specifically designed for CAD users. For the ultimate work desk, it supports up to six displays (four native and two additional) with daisy chaining. You can easily detach the top lid and the internals easily upgraded.
For DisplayPort, there are multiple outputs – two USB 3.1 Type-C ports, and four USB 3.0 Type-A ports, means with this workstation, you don’t need to reach for dongles. The Z2 Mini measures the dimension 216 x 216 x 58mm that means it’s 90 percent smaller than a traditional business-class tower. Size wise, it is shorter than a standard cup of coffee. Because of its small size, you can mount it almost anywhere, from the back of a monitor to under your desk, or even on a VESA arm.
For quiet performance, it has uniquely shaped octagonal chassis which comes with custom designed fans and cooling system. To make sure that the machine always runs cool, the heat vents are designed on the corners of the machine to withstand blockage caused by loose papers. From a combination of faster boot up, app loading, rendering and file handling tasks, you just need to shave ten minutes off a day on a faster machine. Hopefully shaving these 10 minutes off a day is not tough for you especially if these ten minutes add up to 2,500 minutes saved in a working year.
It would be great to upgrade your PC from a desktop to a workstation if you earn a living using your PC doing data intensive or graphics work. You can check out the new HP Z2 Mini G3 if you value both performance as well as design in a minimal chassis that saves space.If you face any technical issue with HP devices, just contact Hp Technical Support.
