HP launches first-ever mini workstation
The HP Z2 Mini introduces server-grade power in a 5.8 by 21.5 centimetre package.
HP has launched the world's first mini workstation, ideally suited for users in CAD and compute-intensive industries. Bringing both power and flexibility to the table, the new HP Z2 Mini Workstation stands at 2.3 inches in height, roughly 90% smaller than a traditional business-class tower.
Continuing on from the successful HP Z240 SFF workstation, the HP Z2 boasts double the power of a commercial mini PC, and also supports up to six displays right out of the box.
Commenting on the launch, Daniel Libeskind, architect and founder of Studio Libeskind, shared: "When designing some of the most technically complex architectural forms the need for cutting edge technology is essential."
He added: "The speed in which we create, and the complexity of projects have become more intense over the years, but computers like HP Workstations are helping quickly bring the visions of designers to life."
The workstations features next generation Intel Xeon processor 5, NVIDIA professional graphics, and is also equipped with the HP Z Turbo Drive, which is ideally suited for managiong large files.
Gwen Coble, director, Workstations, Thin Clients, Retail Solutions and Immersive Computing, EMEA, HP Inc., said: "The HP Z2 Mini, the world's first mini workstation, delivers breakthrough power and versatility in a small, iconic design.
"HP redefined the workstation in 2009 with the introduction of the HP Z series, and now once again is disrupting the category with the new HP Z2 Mini Workstation - the ultimate combination of space efficiency, elegance and power for our customers and partners."
