[1] Optional features sold separately or as add on features.
[2] Multi-Core is designed to improve performance of certain software products. Not all customers or software applications will necessarily benefit from use of this technology. 64-bit computing on Intel® architecture requires a computer system with a processor, chipset, BIOS, operating system, device drivers, and applications enabled for Intel® 64 architecture. Processors will not operate (including 32-bit operation) without an Intel® 64 architecture-enabled BIOS. Performance will vary depending on your hardware and software configurations.
[3] Up to 86% increase in available memory bandwidth can be achieved on the Z420 over the Z400 on optimized configurations with memory distributed across all channels using 1,333 MHz memory speed on the Z400 and 1,866 MHz memory speed on the Z420. This does not imply an 86% increase in performance.
[4] Maximum memory capacities assume Windows 64-bit operating systems or Linux. With Windows 32-bit operating systems, memory above 3 GB may not all be available due to system resource requirements.
[5] Thunderbolt is new technology. Thunderbolt cable and Thunderbolt device (sold separately) must be compatible with Windows. To determine whether your device is Thunderbolt Certified for Windows, see https://thunderbolttechnology.net/products. Thunderbolt™ 2.0 is planned to be available via an optional add-in card in early 2014.
[6] HP Remote Graphics Software requires Windows and an internet connection.
[7] Support for external displays as a standard feature through integrated processor-based graphics is dependent upon the particular workstation configuration; the actual number of displays supported will vary. An optional graphics solution will be required for the support of additional displays. Additional cables required. HD (high-definition) content required to view HD images.
[8] External power supplies, power cords, cables and peripherals are not Low Halogen. Service parts obtained after purchase may not be Low Halogen.
[9] HP Performance Advisor requires Windows and an internet connection.
[10] HP Care Pack services are sold separately. Service levels and response times for HP Care Pack Services may vary depending on your geographic location. Service starts from date of hardware purchase. Restrictions and limitations apply. See www.hp.com/go/cpc for details.
