The HP Z1 is a workstation targeting customers who need the power of a workstation but who have space limitations, Zafarana said.
The entire workstation is built inside a 27-inch white LED display that supports 30-bit color and a pallet of over 1 billion colors. The display also features a 178-degree viewing angle and an in-plane switching panel.
The panel can be quickly flipped open like the hood of a car to provide access to all the components inside, including a 400-watt power supply, a carrier with space for two hard drives or SSDs, and others that the user or partner can easily snap out and replace.
Also inside are low-noise fans as well as eight thermal sensors that moderate fan power to keep noise to a minimum, Zafarana said.
Processing power comes from two Intel Xeon processors and two Nvidia Quadro graphics accelerators.
"This is a professional level of workstation through and through," Zafarana said.
The HP Z1 is the latest follow-on to HP's Z family of workstations first introduced in 2009.
