By DE Editors

HP has released new high performance desktop and mobile workstations. The HP Z220 features next-generation Intel Core and Intel Xeon processors, the latest integrated and discrete professional graphics from Intel, NVIDIA and AMD and four integrated USB 3.0 high-speed ports. The Z220 entry-level workstation is available in a choice of an expandable, Convertible Mini-Tower (CMT) or a highly compact Small Form Factor (SFF) that s 65 percent smaller than other models.

The HP EliteBook w-series combines high-performance features and graphics in a business-rugged design, featuring next-generation Intel Core i7 quad-core or i7 or i5 dual-core processors and up to 32 GB of system memory.

Both desktop and mobile workstations offer a breadth of independent software vendor (ISV) certifications for professionals across a range of industries from product development to media and entertainment.

HP Z220 Workstations have improved overall system performance and energy efficiency. Both Z220 Workstation models offer an array of choices from the new Intel Xeon processor E3-1200 v2 family and third-generation Intel Core processor family. They feature the latest Intel HD Graphics P4000 professional graphics option on selected Intel Xeon E3v2 processors, and a selection of entry, mid-range and high-end discrete graphics cards from NVIDIA and AMD, including support for the next generation PCIe Gen3 graphics cards as they become available.

Other performance enhancements include up to 32GB of 1600MHz DDR3 memory (ECC or non-ECC) and Intel Smart Response Technology, an easy-to-install disk caching technology that can significantly improve storage IO performance, for faster boot time and frequently accessed applications. An optional handle in the top optical bay makes it convenient to move the Z220 CMT. In addition, HP Z220 Workstations feature 90 percent efficient power supplies as standard and are BFR/PVC free. 

The HP EliteBook 8770w includes a 17.3-inch diagonal display. The EliteBook 8570w includes high-end professional graphics, robust processing power and a 15.6-inch diagonal display. HP s most travel-friendly mobile workstation, the EliteBook 8470w, features workstation-caliber graphics and processing, along with a business-rugged design that s optimized around a 14-inch diagonal HD display.

The EliteBook 8570w and 8770w are available with HP DreamColor Technology as an option, providing an IPS display with a consistent color experience throughout development. The EliteBook w-series features a magnesium aluminum chassis, a radial-brushed display cover that resists fingerprints, glass touchpads and precision aluminum-alloy hinges and HP Easy Access Doors to make them easy to open and keep them secure when closed. They meet stringent military standards (MIL-STD-810G) for dust, vibration, shock, altitude, drop, high temperature, low temperature, and shock.
