HP Inc. announced its new Z by HP high-performance workstation desktop lineup, engineered to change what is possible within complex, data rich workflows. HP is advancing hybrid workforce management with the HP Anyware Remote System Controller, a device that gives IT departments the management capabilities to support high performance devices from anywhere.
The complex workflows in industries spanning media and entertainment, data science, and engineering mean increased time pressure and the need for more compute power to deliver faster results. They also highlight a need to iterate with remote teams and push creative boundaries to deliver more accurate results. The new Z by HP Z4, Z6, Z8, and Z8 Fury desktops, powered by Intel, deliver the scalable balance of CPU and GPU compute needed to fuel new levels of speed, accuracy, and creativity.
“Z by HP is dedicated to delivering the best possible computing experience to fuel new levels of speed, accuracy, and creativity,” said Jim Nottingham, Vice President and General Manager, Z by HP. “HP’s design engineering, together with the power of Intel and NVIDIA, provide the performance, scalability, and security our customers require to meet their evolving needs.”
“Intel and Z by HP represent the future of high-performance workstation computing,” said Roger Chandler, Vice President and General Manager, Intel. “With Intel Xeon W, users can expect breakthrough performance, advanced security features, and the scalability they need to tackle the most demanding workloads.”
“Traditional design and visualization workflows are evolving rapidly, thanks to revolutionary advances in AI, photoreal rendering, and simulation,” said Bob Pette, vice president of professional visualization at NVIDIA. “The new high-end workstations will deliver the GPU and CPU horsepower needed to meet the toughest demands of creative and technical professionals to enhance productivity and collaboration.”
Extreme Workstation Performance
Z by HP innovations start with the customer to deliver the performance benefits needed, whether it’s importing and working with large models and assemblies, running complex simulations, or training complex deep learning and machine learning models faster. The latest Z workstation desktops include up to 56 CPU cores and four high-end NVIDIA RTX 6000 Ada Generation professional GPUs, and NVIDIA ConnectX-6 DX SmartNICs in the Z8 Fury G5. The Z4, Z6, Z8, and our all-new Z8 Fury, provide a variety of configurations to meet every workflow challenge for each of these segments. From our best-selling workhorse, the Z4, to the extreme performance of the Z8 Fury, Z by HP has the right workstation for every workflow.
- The Z8 Fury G5 delivers powerful performance while staying cool and quiet under high-performance workflows. The up to 56 cores in a single CPU unleash the power of four high-end dual-slot RTX 6000 GPUs because of the CPU’s transformative single-socket technology. Now you can breeze through even the most complex deep learning, virtual production, and VFX workflows.
- The HP Z4 G5 tackles advanced workflows from machine learning to 2K video editing with an evolutionary advancement of up to a 24-core CPU, two high-end RTX 6000 GPUs, and up to 512GB of RAM. The Z4 G5 accelerates a wide range of professional apps to advance intensive workflows and provides plenty of room to expand as workflows evolve.
- The HP Z6 G5 accelerates graphics-intensive workflows with up to three NVIDIA RTX 6000 professional GPUs based on the increased PCIe expandability of the latest Intel Xeon W-3400 processor architecture. With up to 36 processing cores, three high-end graphics cards, and 1TB of DDR5 memory, the Z6 G5 delivers significant performance for users demanding a machine that scales with their increased model and dataset complexity.
- The HP Z8 G5 is designed for users who demand the most processing compute for CPU-intensive workflows to accelerate rendering with real-time ray tracing, data visualization, and model training while also providing plenty of room to expand as demands change. With a dual-socket workstation, designed to utilize 4th Gen Intel Xeon, it can deliver up to 64 system cores in addition to supporting 2x high-end NVIDIA RTX 6000 graphics cards with 1TB of DDR5 memory.
Consolidate Workstation Fleet Management
The HP Anyware Remote System Controller provides IT administrators a single dashboard with the ability to launch a kernel-based virtual machine (KVM) session and perform out-of-band management tasks such as pre-boot access, BIOS updates and re-imaging from anywhere.4 Through a single interface, IT administrators can now manage a fleet of devices, access secure system information like model numbers and BIOS versions, receive reports, and develop insights to optimize their infrastructure and resolve issues before they affect users.5 HP is designing this hardware and software based on strong security industry standards, completing extensive testing, third-party reviews, and certifications to ensure maximum security.
