HP today announced the first professional monitors of the new Z Display family as well as new entry-level Z Workstations.
HP introduced the HP Z22i, Z23i and Z24i IPS Displays.
Built with IPS Gen 2 panels, HP Z Displays deliver a power savings of nearly 26 percent compared to HP?s first-generation IPS technology products.
The new displays provide excellent coverage of the sRGB color space - the standard color space for the web, and for the majority of engineering, creative and professional applications - with the HP Z22i and Z23i offering 95 percent coverage, and the HP Z24i offering 99 percent coverage. The displays also feature accurate colors across wider viewing angles compared to previous displays.
The HP Z22i, Z23i and Z24i Displays are available today for starting prices of $239, $259 and $399, respectively.
Designed for heavy 24/7/365 workloads, the HP Z230 Workstation series delivers next-generation processor and graphics technologies in two redesigned chassis - a compact, yet expandable, tower offering, and a capable small form factor.
The HP Z230 Small Form Factor Workstation has been designed for use in environments with limited space. High-performance options for both the Z230 Tower and SFF include the latest Intel Xeon processors and discrete graphics options that support as many as six independent displays.
The HP Z230 Workstations start at $999 for quad-core configurations, and are expected to be available worldwide in August.
