Meet the Z Series

Z2 Mini

The Z2 is one of the world’s most powerful entry-level workstations. Almost twice as powerful as rival miniature PCs, it can cram up to a 6-core Intel Xeon or Core X-Series processor, 32GB DDR4 memory, and up to 1.5TB of total storage into a slimline 2kg package. Plenty of PCIe slots and Thunderbolt 3 connectivity mean that it’s easy to make the Z2 the centre of a large workstation setup.


Z2 workstations come in two sizes: your traditional tower, and a small form factor, 5.7kg model for studios where space is at a premium. Capable of holding 16GB RAM and up to a terabyte of HDD storage, all of which works in conjunction with NVIDIA Quatro P500 graphics, the Z2 is an ideal entry level workstation for designers and architects.


HP’s best-seller, the Z4 has become a staple in creative workplaces across the world. Able to run Windows 10 Pro or HP Linux, the Z4 can be optimised for a range of different applications. It can support up to 18-core Intel Xeon W or Core X-Series processors, 256GB RAM, up to two SSD drives, up to four PCIe ZTurbo drives, or up to three traditional HDDs. Thunderbolt 3 connectivity ensures the fastest possible connection to your accessories, and there are plenty of PCIe expansion options.


With up to 44 Intel Xeon processors, 384GB of memory and 36TB storage, the Z6 is ideal for graphics-heavy work. Its capacity and extensibility mean that it’s a great option for expanding facilities, who need their workstations to be futureproof enough to take on higher resolution footage and more demanding projects as the business grows.


Ideal for 8K video editing, complex visualisations and simulations, the Z8 is HP’s most powerful workstation. A top-spec configuration can have 56 cores, 1.5TB of memory, 48TB of storage and three NVIDIA Quadro P6000 graphics cards (it’ll also support some AMD cards). Whatever you throw at it, the Z8 offers realtime performance, low latency and phenomenal power.


Working on set? HP’s ZBook range of mobile workstations are some of the most powerful and versatile laptops available, with models qualified by Avid for use with their industry-leading creative applications. Top of the range models feature a 17” screen, up to 128GB memory*, 10TB storage – yes, on a laptop – and NVIDIA P5200 graphics.
