HP launches new Xeon-based Z workstations

HP has announced the new Z line workstation family, which includes four models based on the Intel Xeon W and Y platforms, to meet the highest demands in terms of computing power.

The new systems are aimed at professional users in the fields of creativity, engineering, scientific research and data science, and offer extensive configuration flexibility, with the ability to scale up to extreme performance.

Four models

The new line-up of HP Z Workstations consists of four models, called Z4, Z6, Z8 and Z8 Fury. From an aesthetic point of view, in all cases they are black tower units, characterized by a rather sophisticated design while remaining in the tradition.

The chassis has been designed to ensure easy access for the maintenance operations and offers excellent silence even under load, thanks to an advanced temperature and ventilation control system with over twenty sensors.

All models are based on Intel Xeon W processors and use the chipset Intel W790, with the exception of the Z8, which instead integrates a C741 platform with dual Xeon Y processors.

The Z4 G5 workstation represents the entry level of the family and offers the possibility to choose Xeon W processors from 6 with 24 cores, which can be combined with a maximum RAM memory of 512 Gbytes, of the DDR5-4800 type, etc.

Even the graphics section is widely configurable: starting from almost consumer cards, such as the AMD Radeon RX6 400 or Nvidia T400, up to ultra-high-end solutions such as the Nvidia RTX A6000, even in dual configuration.

The options dedicated to storage include magnetic platter disks up to 12 Tbytes or SSD solutions M2 up to 2 Tbytes, for combinations that can reach up to a maximum of 76 Tbytes.

Increasing equipment

A step up is the Z6 G5 workstation, which shares many basic features with its younger sister, to which it adds a selection of processors up to 36 cores, an maximum of 1 Tbyte of RAM memory and the option for two 10 Gbps Ethernet ports.

Furthermore, the Z6 can be configured with up to three Nvidia RTX A6000 graphics cards, which guarantee exceptional computing capabilities.

Going up again in the offer we find the Z8 G5, which as mentioned offers a dual socket configuration and can therefore offer a maximum of 64 cores, with two Xeon Gold 6430 or 6448Y processors. The maximum storage grows up to 120 Tbytes, while two graphics cards can be installed.

Finally, at the top of the range is the Z8 Fury G5, another single core configuration that reaches the apex allowed by the platform : the processor can reach 56 cores, which can be combined with a maximum of 2 Tbytes of Ram memory, 120 Tbytes of storage and four Nvidia RTX A6000 graphics cards.

All workstations can be shipped with Windows 11, Ubuntu 22.04, or Red Hat Enterprise Linux, and support the HP Anyware remote access system. This subscription-based solution offers high-quality remote access to the workstation, allowing you to perform even the most complex tasks, such as video editing or data visualization.

Remote access

Along with the new Z series desktops, HP also announced the Anyware Remote System Controller, an accessory intended for remote control that allows you to manage high-performance computers wherever you are.

Via The HP Anyware Remote System Controller, IT administrators can use a unified dashboard for machine management, displaying all system information and obtaining detailed reports on the status of the machines.

Furthermore, thanks to an advanced KVM system they can perform remotely even ok , such as pre-boot access, Bios update or operating system maintenance.

The Anyware Remote System Controller is available in internal and external versions na.
