HP has unveiled the newest addition to the Z by HP workstation lineup: the HP Z6 G5 A, a desktop workstation designed to handle virtual production, 3D rendering, AI and machine learning. With the highest number of cores ever in a Z by HP workstation and the ability to configure up to three high-performance graphics cards,1 the Z6 G5 A is set to enhance productivity and performance, the company says.
Powered by the AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO CPU, the Z6 G5 A features up to 96 cores in a single workstation CPU, allowing users to create and render simultaneously on intensive projects. With space for up to three high-end NVIDIA RTX 6000 Ada Generation GPUs or AMD GPUs and eight memory channels, the Z6 G5 A can work through virtual production, 3D modeling tasks, or complex, advanced data sets.
“The HP Z6 G5 A is a groundbreaking workstation that embodies the perfect fusion of maximized cores and powerful graphics,” says Jim Nottingham, senior vice president and Division President, Advanced Compute and Solutions, HP Inc. “The Z6 G5 A is a testament to our commitment to innovation, sustainability, and customer satisfaction as we continue to push the boundaries of what's possible in workstation technology.”
“At AMD, we are proud to have our Ryzen Threadripper™ PRO 7000 Series processors power the new HP Z6 G5 A workstation, a cutting-edge solution that caters to the diverse and demanding requirements of today’s complex workflows,” says Jason Banta, AMD corporate vice president and GM, OEM PCs. “Our collaboration with HP exemplifies our shared vision of pushing the boundaries of innovation and customer satisfaction, delivering a robust and reliable solution that exceed expectations in the ever-evolving field of high-performance compute.”
The Z6 G5 A can handle virtual production or 3D modeling tasks as well as data science workflows like AI and machine learning. With its system design and the new AMD Ryzen Threadripper Pro 7000 WX-Series CPU, the Z6 G5 A packs numerous cores into a single workstation for higher productivity, according to HP.
The Z6 G5 A also offers room to expand as demands change, with space for up to three high-end GPUs and flexible storage options with front-accessible, hot-swappable NVMe drives for quick and easy access to large files. The redesigned layout of this generation Z by HP desktop workstation increases airflow, ensuring the system remains cool even at peak performance, while intelligent fan control tunes the fan speeds in real time using over 20 temperature sensors to maintain whisper-quiet operation.
With 360,000 hours of testing, MIL-STD testing and certification for professional applications, the HP Z6 G5 A is built to endure. HP’s commitment to sustainability is reinforced in the design, built with 40% recycled plastics.
