High-end GPU and CPU for a balanced machine

Depending on which renderer you're using, you'll either render on the CPU or the GPU. Increasingly, renderers are GPU-accelerated for real-time ray tracing, so a balanced machine is your best bet

Expandable memory for complex projects

To optimize performance, fill all memory channels. For example, Z8 has 6 memory channels per CPU slot — so you can fit up to 1.5TB of memory into a single machine.

Remote access and collaboration

Remote working is here to stay. With ZCentral Remote Boost,1 multiple people can remotely connect to the same machine, making it easy to collaborate and review progress in real-time.

Whether you're cutting together spots, shorts or features, you push your system to the max. That's why we've developed an extensive line of powerhouse devices to help you edit in less time so you can hit your deadlines.

Power to work with 4K & multi-camera workflows

While working on a single camera project, 6-8 core CPUs may be fine, for multi-camera projects and/or 4K material, make sure you have 12+ cores.

GPU-acceleration for rendering & encoding

Although most editing applications rely on the CPU, many rendering and encoding tasks are now GPU-accelerated. A good editing machine, then, should include a discrete graphics card.

Color accuracy for grading & final delivery

HP DreamColor displays are calibrated to a variety of color spaces — such as Rec 709 and DCI P3 — to match your delivery specifications.

Expert insights · Game Development  

Keith Fish,
HP M&E Graphics Planner

Choice of GPUs for dev and QA

Gaming and the GPU go hand in hand so choose the graphics card most appropriate to your audience - Z workstations come with a choice of professional and consumer GPUs.

Balanced machine

Game development requires both CPU and GPU power for compiling and rendering, respectively. We recommend a mimimum of 8 cores on the CPU and at least a mid-range graphics card.

Expandable memory for complex projects

To optimize performance, fill all memory channels. For example, Z8 has 6 memory channels per CPU slot — so you can fit up to 1.5TB of memory into a single machine.

From print layouts to typography treatments to branding projects, Z helps you iterate and design faster so you can tackle any project any way you want.
