HP xw8400 Quad-Core Workstation

 

If you've read about the new quad-core workstations, you've probably wondered if they could substantially speed up your work. I wondered about that, too. So I jumped at the chance to review the latest HP xw8400 Workstation equipped with two 2.66 GHz...

First Look Review: HP xw8400 Workstation

 

Highly recommended desktop system is a bit pricey, but offers extremely quiet operation and remarkable AutoCAD performance

Although the higher price tag would ordinarily preclude the xw8400 from receiving Cadalyst's Highly Recommended rating, the stellar AutoCAD performance proved to be the determining factor here, so the HP xw8400 earns the Highly Recommended rating.

HP xw8400 Workstation

 

Remember the Xeon? It was Intel's leading-edge processor for PC-based workstations in the late 1990s. Then it was eclipsed by AMD's Opteron processor. Now the Xeon is back in the headlines with a vengeance.

Hewlett Packard XW6400

 

The HP Workstation Xw6400 is a power packed computer worthy of the most daunting office tasks, and could even double as a gaming PC, should work become too boring. It has 2 GB of memory right out of the box - plenty for multitasking - and the dual...

The HP Xw6400 is an excellent choice for a business computer, and one would be hard-pressed to find anything more powerful for the price

HP - xw6400

 

HP's latest personal workstation series, the xw6400, is aimed at mid-range business users and, housed in a new mini-tower case, it's ideal where desk space is at a premium yet a system with plenty of grunt ...

This is an ideal system if you are looking to upgrade from an entry level workstation, while its small format makes it ideal for the smaller office, although on the flip side it does mean that your options are limited if you want to expand the hardware.

xw6400

 

Our review unit of HP's first workstation to offer quad-core chips is modestly specced and priced - and it's a lot smaller that other systems we've seen.

Small, quiet case. Good set of entry-level accessories.

Slow processor. Few drive bays.

Our review unit has just a single processor, which you could upgrade with another chip in the future. It's the Intel Xeon E5310, which is the slowest of the quad-core range and runs at 1.6GHz. The specs are completed by 4GB of RAM, an nVidia 1500...

Works like a champ

 

i was put off by the one egg review because the writer didnt get the drift of this kind of PRO machine. i had to adjust too from the more consumer machines. when new this machine was thousands, it built like a tank and can be upgraded with newer...

THIS IS A PRO MACHINE, NOT DEPT STORE PLASTIC.. MADE FOR BIG WORK.. 800W POWERSUPPLY SHOULD TELL YOU SOMETHING. I OWN 2... AND CONFIGURE THEM AS I NEED FOR VIDEO EDITOR AND DAILY MACHINE

POST IS A BIT SLOW AND VERY THOROUGH, to allow configuring if needed. it assumes nothing on boot [tho i think there is a fast boot option in bios]. if youre complaining about the boot screen and slow, you dont know enough about this kind or workhorse
