To give you some specs that might get you excited to see how fast it can crunch your work. The new Z8 on the top-end features 24 RAM slots and up to 3TB of RAM, dual Xeon CPUs(up to 56 cores), dual M.2 SSDs as well as dual NVIDIA Quadro Pro graphics cards. Apps like Fusion, Davinci Resolve, 3D applications, and any other app that can tap into these incredible hardware specs.
On the Mainboard your going to find 10 USB 3.1 G2 Type C ports, dual Gig-E ports, seven full-length full height PCIe slot(up to nine total). TBv3 add-in. Also to keep up with today's demanding power requirement especially if you max GPU's they've upgraded the Power Supply from 1125w to 1700w with invective ducting. Speaking of GPU's...setup your machine with a pair of NVIDIA 24GB P6000 Quadros, a couple Intel Platinum 8180M 28 cores and your well over $30k.
Comparing to previous gen3 Z840 I currently own some of the major differences are the Chassis is improved to house the power supply on the side leaving more room above for expansion like PCIe cards. The more powerful power supply makes it better for running GPU's that require more power than the Quadro's for example. Also you'll notice internally the plugs are now 6+2 for 8pin GPU's. This will really keep the machine cleaner not having to get adapters that can restrict airflow or just get in your way with upgrades. Since the design is updated you get more slots and you are now allowed to put Zdrives above on the additional slots where the previous gen thunderbolt cards had to go on a certain slot, or turbo drives had to be dedicated slot which could interfere with your build...especially for me since I typically ran dual Titans.
The only item left now is your Monitor. HP also brought to market a pretty cool new 38" curved display. Immerse yourself in the 21:9 aspect ratio, 4K 3840 x 1600 resolution display with optimized pixel density so icons and text are ideal sizes leaving you more time to be creative.
