HP has launched its HP Z2 Mini, world’s first mini workstation, in India. It is designed for users in Computer Aided Design (CAD) and other compute-intensive industries. The Z2 Mini is just 2.3-inch high and is 90 percent smaller than a traditional business-class tower PC. The device also has the ability to support six displays. Furthermore, the company says that the Z2 Mini is twice as powerful compared to any other commercial mini PC in the market today.
“Designed for the workspace of the future, HP Z2 Mini Workstation is remarkably versatile and it showcases next level power by offering twice the power of a business-class mini PC, a key for designers,” said Ketan Patel, Senior Director, Personal Systems Business, HP Inc. India.
As for specifications, the Z2 Mini packs next-generation Intel Xeon processors coupled with Nvidia professional graphics. On the software front, it runs Windows 10 Pro or Linux operating system.
“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,” said Jeff Wood, vice president and general manager, Workstations and Thin Clients, HP Inc.
