HP Reinvents the Workstation
Posted Mar 30, 2009

HP today unveiled the HP Z Workstation series -- a reinvention of the product category from the core outward that offers customers unprecedented performance, value and serviceability in a sleek new design. The HP Z800, HP Z600 and HP Z400 Workstations are the culmination of more than 20 HP design innovations -- including a self-checking power supply -- and take advantage of the new Intel® Xeon® processor.

Jim Zafarana, vice president and general manager, Workstations, HP, said, "The new Z line marks the first HP workstations to be totally serviceable with your fingers - from the power supply to the motherboard. Early studies show that an HP Z Workstation may pay for itself in a surprisingly short period with its performance and productivity gains."

Verena Kloos, president, BMW Group DesignworksUSA, said, "Opening the door of the new BMW Z4 and the side panel of the new HP Z Workstation reveals that both are as aesthetically powerful and innovative on the inside as they are on the outside."

Three workstation lines to meet every customer need:
* The HP Z800 Workstation is HP's most powerful and expandable workstation for users working with applications such as 3-D animation, broadcast video, oil and gas discovery, and medical imaging.
* The HP Z600 Workstation is designed with the environment in mind, offering high performance in a compact size for professionals in industries such as video production, finance and midrange CAD.
* The HP Z400 is the first single-socket workstation based on the Next-Generation Intel Microarchitecture (Nehalem) and can be built with the latest Intel Xeon processors.
