Like all HP workstations, the Z620 is designed to satisfy the ever-growing demands of professionals who work with large and complex datasets, complex 3D models, require multiple displays, or for businesses that just need a high-performance and reliable system for their employees.

It is also equipped with (up to) 24 discrete processor cores, making the Z620 seems quite a powerhouse when it comes to computing and visualization horsepower. It offers all of this while having an unobtrusive build and footprint as well as producing very little noise when the workstation is doing its thing.
