HP shows entry-level workstation

LAS VEGAS — At NAB, HP (www.hp.com) is introducing a new entry-level workstation to its Z-series family. The HP Z210 will be available in a choice of form factors when it ships later this month.

The Z210 offers a 20 percent performance increase over the previous Z200 model. It features seven I/O slots; a choice of graphics options from AMD, Nvidia and Intel; and a 90 percent efficient power supply. The Z210 features Intel’s latest technologies, with a choice of high performance enterprise-class Xeon E3 and second-generation Core i3/i5/i7 processors.

HP’s Performance Advisor V.1.2 helps keep applications running smoothly and can show users the performance of the system’s different components. SSD drives are available as an option and USB 3.0 can also be added.

HP is offering the Z210 in two different form factors. The CMT (convertible mini tower) is priced at $659, and the SFF (small form factor), which is 65 percent the size of the CMT, is priced at $569.
