HP Z8 G4 Workstation Features
Extreme power

Run 3D simulations and edit 8K video in real time with up to 56 processing cores and up to 3 TB high-speed memory. Certified for serious software, such as ANSYS or After Effects, you can ideate and iterate more to deliver better work in less time.

Industry-leading design and acoustics

From the inside out, the Z8 is an engineering wonder. The modern exterior provides tool-free access to a clean, modular interior. Strategically placed vents and ducts throughout the system streamline airflow for ultra-quiet performance.
