HP expands workstation portfolio

RIYADH, September 14, 2020

HP has  unveiled new additions to the Z by HP portfolio, built for professional creators and power users who need performance, reliability, broad hardware expandability, and the versatility to get the job done in any work environment.

As 80% of professional creators and power users want to continue working from home either full or part-time even after offices reopen, flexibility in how and where they work is critical. Additionally, 40% of workers need to move around the home for meetings during the day, reimagining the idea of office mobility. HP is adapting its technology to meet the needs of the mobile workforce by incorporating powerhouse performance into dense form factors with ZCentral 4R, Z2 Mini, and ZBook Fury, and including “beyond the box” innovations for anyone from IT decision makers to architects and data scientists.

“Professional creators and power users need a curated experience that aligns to the way they work and live in today’s new normal,” said Jim Nottingham, general manager and global head, Advanced Compute and Solutions, HP Inc.

“Our Z portfolio delivers the mobility, performance, and flexibility the creative community wants with innovative solutions likeZCentral4R, designed to ensure access to the cutting-edge technology and security solutions needed to power the next creative breakthrough.”

ZCentral 4R: Designed for Remote Performance and Expansion

HP introduced ZCentral 4R, the world’s most powerful 1U racked workstation for media and entertainment, product development, data science, and healthcare. ZCentral 4R is engineered to harness the power of a Z4 workstation in a 1U form factor and designed for high density in racked environments. Equipped with the latest Intel Xeon W Processors (up to 18 CPU cores) and graphics options up to the NVIDIA Quadro RTX 8000, remote workers get professional-grade performance built for intense workloads.

 ZCentral 4R also provides layers of security with an exterior lockable front panel, HP Security Suite preloaded inside the box, all while physically secure in a racked data closet.

HP ZCentral is the world’s first single sourced remote workstation solution  and with the addition of ZCentral 4R, enables workers to better create, connect, and collaborate seamlessly from remote locations. New updates to the solution help address two top IT challenges: managing multiple remote devices at once and the increased security risk from more remote endpoint devices.

 Z2 G5 Desktops: Going Beyond the Box

The new entry Z by HP desktop portfolio is built for today’s designers who are shaping the world around us. HP’s new powerful entry workstations, HP Z2 Mini G5, HP Z2 Small Form Factor G5, and HP Z2 Tower G5, take the latest processing power to another level, offering performance previously only available in high-end desktop workstations, and at an accessible price for any power user. The new Z2 line-up brings performance gains, higher wattage power supplies for max configurability, and market leading expandability. It’s now easier to build the ideal, ergonomic friendly, home office set-up that is purpose-built with well-being in mind.

Z Book: Unthrottled Performance  Just Got Smaller

The ZBook Fury gives users uncompromised desktop-level performance  from the home office to the kitchen table. The ZBook Fury 15 is now 12% smaller than the previous generation and the ZBook Fury 17 is 29% smaller this year, making it the world’s smallest 17-inch mobile workstation with RTX 5000 . With NVIDIA professional graphics up to Quadro RTX 5000 or AMD Radeon RX, ZBook Fury brings industry leading workstation performance for any visualization – from data science to machine learning to 3D rendering applications – while multitasking.

Now with ZBook Fury content creators get unthrottled performance  and full expandability in a more portable design –desktop-level performance in a mobile form factor.

Engineered with the Z VaporForce thermal solution, peak performance can be achieved as users simultaneously use both the CPU and GPU. This new ability in the ZBook Fury is important for multiple photo and video workflows and when engineers, architects, designers, and creatives use multiple applications. For color-critical workflows, next-gen DreamColor accurately represents content on-screen with factory calibration for easy out-of-box experience.

PANTONE Validated displays meet the color expert’s fidelity criteria31 in the simulation of the full range of real-world PANTONE Colors, meaning creatives can design with confidence.

The ZBook Power, HP’s most affordable mobile workstation, makes the power of the ZBook more accessible and ideal for STEAM students. The mobile workstation offers fast performance and improved thermals allowing for up to NVIDIA Quadro T2000 graphics and Intel Xeon or Core i9 processors in a chassis that is now 19% smaller, 11% thinner, and nearly 10% lighter than previous generation. – TradeArabia News Service
