  6. As Blu-ray is a new format containing new technologies, certain disc, digital connection, compatibility and/or performance issues may arise, and do not constitute defects in the product. Flawless playback on all systems is not guaranteed. In order for some Blu-ray titles to play, they may require a DVI or HDMI digital connection and your display may require HDCP support. HD DVD movies cannot be played on this workstation.
  7. All specifications represent the typical specifications provided by HP's component manufacturers; actual performance may vary either higher or lower.
  8. Linux available on select systems.
  9. 64-bit computing on Intel architecture requires a computer system with a processor, chipset, BIOS, operating system, device drivers, and applications enabled for Intel® 64 architecture. Processors will not operate (including 32-bit operation) without an Intel® 64 architecture-enabled BIOS. Performance will vary depending on your hardware and software configurations. See www.intel.com/info/em64t for more information.
  10. The hyper-threading feature is designed to improve performance of multi-threaded software products; please contact your software provider to determine software compatibility. Not all customers or software applications will benefit from the use of hyperthreading. Go to www.intel.com/info/hyperthreading for more information, including which processors support HT Technology.
  11. Intel® Turbo Boost technology requires a PC with a processor with Intel® Turbo Boost capability. Intel® Turbo Boost performance varies depending on hardware, software, and overall system configuration. See www.intel.com/technology/turboboost for more information.
  12. Each processor supports up to 2 channels of DDR3 memory. To realize full performance, at least 1 DIMM must be inserted into each channel. Intel® Xeon® E3, Intel® Core i3 and Intel® Pentium processors can support either ECC or non-ECC memory. Intel® Core i5/i7 processors only support non-ECC memory.
  13. SATA hardware RAID is not supported on Linux systems. The Linux kernel, with built-in software RAID, provides excellent functionality and performance. It is a good alternative to hardware-based RAID. Please visit http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c00060684/c00060684.pdf for RAID capabilities with Linux.
