HP Z6 G4 Workstation Review: The Most Powerful, Yet Affordable “Future-Proof” Workstation Tower on the Market

You can describe this Workstation by HP as a “future-proof powerhouse” that you can easily upgrade over time to meet your growing needs. It delivers good performance and features a wide range of processing power and the flexibility to upgrade any of the components over time. So, invest in what you need today with the HP Z6 G4 Workstation. In the future, it will be easier and more affordable to add more power.

Imagine what you can accomplish with up to 768GB (12 x 64GB) of DDR4 2933 ECC registered memory (with two processors) and several internal PCIe and M.2 drives. HP advertises it as ideal for rendering and VFX, but you can use it as a workhorse for just about any type of project that requires a good deal of power and speed.

HP designed it as a 1000-W chassis that is ENERGY STAR qualified with Intel C622 chipset. The integrated network is Intel I2I9 LM PCIe GbE and Intel X722 PCIe GbE. There are additional networking options as well as an HP SD card reader. For security, the HP Z6 G4 Workstation comes with HP Solenoid Lock / Hood Sensor – TWR. In addition, several accessories come with this chassis, including a Memory Cooling Station and Side Panel Barrel keylock (Z4 / Z6 G4).

The OS is Windows 10 Pro (for Workstations), and the machine is Ubuntu Linux 20.04 and Linux-ready. HP recommends the use of Windows 10 Pro for businesses. There are several Intel Xeon processor options. As mentioned above, it can come with dual processors. Choose all of the memory and storage you need, or stick with the basic configuration right now and upgrade later.

HP Z6 G4 Workstation Graphics

What about graphics? There is room for not just one or two, but THREE graphics cards, with NVIDIA Quadro RTX and AMD Radeon Pro WX options.

This PC is one of the most secure workstations, thanks to the industry’s first “self-healing BIOS” with intrusion detection.

Even if you get the base configuration that includes 8GB of RAM (2666 MHz DDR4 ECC registered), you can count on getting a boost of speed whenever you need to run multiple applications at once. This memory speed, as well as the multiple PCIe and M.2 drives, will allow you to access all of your regularly used files and programs quickly.

The great thing about the HP Z6 G4 Workstation is that its starting price is very affordable. Of course, it helps that there are plenty of HP coupons available you can use as well. Once again, there is always room for additional components and upgrades in the future.
