HP Announces New Z1 G3 Workstation and RGS Software for the Mac Community…

 
So here I am in Las Vegas for NABShow. So much going on it’s hard to soak it all in.  Last night I attended an HP and Nvidia Sponsored event for VR with The Foundry. Wow VR is coming and it’s going to be pretty amazing. Within the past couple of weeks HP has made some announcements. You can check out my post on the new HP VR Workstations. Give it a read to learn more.

Today HP announced the update to the Z1 all in one workstation. This may not seem like a new concept…certainly apple has had their iMac which has had more refreshes than we’ve seen the MacPro. You can read my thoughts on the MacPro

When you start to look at the machines from Apple and HP you might see a trend. HP continues to innovate and bring to market more features under the hood as a direct result of listening to their customers(which some in recent years on the Apple side have not felt the same experience-can’t speak mac users in general but I myself was frustrated with the focus on iDevices over their Pro Apps and Computers. I’ve since moved my workflow over to HP in my lab…and yes my Macbook Pro is still around…possibly more useful now with the RGS coming to Mac). We saw that with the first gen HP Z1. Tool less so you can swap parts, make upgrades and so on. This is possible on a iMac but it’s not as straight forward imo. Also the graphics, ecc memory, turbo drives, and more all add up to me a very powerful stand alone workstation. If you’re looking for an all in one I think you’ll be really excited to see the latest update. More info below from the new release.

The other area that has been an issue for facility and end users is working in an environment where macs exist. Many artist are on Mac. We are starting to see a lot more over to bigger faster and more capable workstations like the HP Z Workstation but at the end of the day not everyone is ready to make a change or in some cases artist are happy to work on their laptop or macbook pro. So up to now remote graphics software that is available for HP Workstations with windows, now Mac users can dive in and also take advantage remotely. What does that mean. Well their are artist that might work or want to work from home to avoid traffic and having to go back and forth when they could just stay at home and work on a Mac but actually utilizing the horespower of much more capable and powerful Workstations. So today HP has once again brought more flexibility to the end user and larger facilities that already have HP Z Workstations in place. Up till now they other end had to be another windows machine. No longer. Now the artist will be able to in install the software on their mac and connect just like I would on my HP Elitebook or ZBook etc. I can just stay at home and work just like I was at the facility. This is very welcome news…and I wouldn’t be surprised if more users start this way and eventually consider moving over to an HP.

So year after year…HP continues to bring solutions for the large facilities as well as the end user artist. How cool would that be to just log in from home on my Macbook Pro or anywhere and continue to keep the project moving forward.

These two announcements I think are really great. A more compact sleep HP Z1 Workstations that’s easily serviceable and software that brings the Mac User into the same workflow. So you really have more options than ever..!

HP Z Workstations Upgrade and 1TB Z Turbo Drive G2…

Today Hp increases expandability with upgrades to the Z Workstation line of Products including the HP Z840, Z640, and the Z440 with newer faster memory, cpu’s(Xeons), latest AMD, Nvidia, and more including the latest HP Z Turbo Drive Generation 2 with capacity now 1TB just ahead of NABShow coming up next month in Las Vegas(the largest Media and Entertainment expo in the world). This is very welcome as the 1st Gen were certainly faster(faster than a typical SSD attached to the port opposed to the bus via the pci-e card slot)but the smaller capacity fills up fast. The latest Gen 2 Z Turbo drive is 4 times the read performance of traditional SSD/s at comparable prices. I’ve been running the HP Z Turbo Drives since Gen 1. I’m also running both Gen 2 as well as the HP Z Turbo Quad Drive which is also uber fast with speeds up to 16x performance of Sata SSD’s(more on that in another post to follow).

 

What’s really fantastic about this is the fact that compared to say Gen 1 Turbo drive to get this capacity you’d need to drop at least two 512GB Gen 1 Z Turbo Drives(taking up two slots which could be used for I/O, single slot GPU for GUI, Raid Card etc-if your like me my machines is built up from top to bottom with every slot being occupied). On top of it to get the best performance out of the Gen 1 you might consider creating a Raid 0 software Raid as also your increasing the capacity. I did just this when I got the Gen 1 Z Turbo Drives. You can check out how to do this in Windows guide here which also shows you how I set it up for working with some of the Adobe Creative Cloud Products.

HP Z Workstation and ZBook 2014 Fall Launch..!

Here we are again. HP is back with a brand new line of Z Workstations and Z Book Mobiles. I keep seeing more and more amazing products from HP. Just this past month I was up for Siggraph and sat down with some of the great people behind the HP Z products. All I can say is wow. They truly listen to us Media and Entertainment users like myself who was an all Mac guy from my cell phone, mobile, and workstation I made the switch over to HP Z products. Don’t get me wrong I still enjoy seeing all the great ideas and products Apple has brought to market but as my needs changed and stepped into the Ultra HD 4K, 5K, 6K and beyond world I needed and wanted more from the MacPro. Thankfully there are options out there and that really what it’s all about. Before the new MacPro(aka ‘Garbage Can)came out I was patiently waiting for their next workstation. I’m one that is always looking for the edge when it comes to computer technology and really any technology for that matter. Well I decided to go HP from my tried and true workstation my MacPro(pre garbage can). I’ve heard great things from users who are incorporating the very well put together new MacPro but it’s not so difficult to see why some users such as myself still like a true workstation over the new MacPro design. I still like to upgrade my GPU, and that’s not really an option with the latest MacPros. So for me this is really a bonus that I have the option to still drop in the latest and greatest GPU. Currently I’m running the Nvidia GeForce Titan Z. I’ve ran the original Titan, and Titan Black in the past. For the money it’s the obvious choice for many but I still think the Quadro line is amazing and one day I may give them a try again. My MacPro I ran a Quadro 4800 and when I first got my HP Z820 I ran a Quadro 5000 so I’m no stranger to Quadro Graphics. While I was up at Siggraph I got to check out the latest updates to the quadro line and I feel they are on the right path. The Quadro K6000 still sits as their flagship model with their cards like the K5200 there’s an option for everyone. The new cards have more ram and that for me is definitely very welcome since so many apps and plugins now tap directly into the GPU for many computing task. That is a reason why the Titan Z was a good choice for me(it takes up 3 slots over 4 which is useful for keeping open slots for other cards such as the HP Z Turbo drives I also just recently added to my Z820-which isn’t the latest machine but still a beast with plenty of horsepower to keep things moving along. The latest models just take the performance another leap forward with more computing in less time and effort.

The mobiles in the past were rather bulky and felt large. The new line of Z Books that were introduced last year at the launch in New York I attended and was on the tech panel were heading in the direction of smother lines, a thinner feel and look rounding those corners and making things less boxy. The pattern continues with the new additions of 15 and 17 G2 ZBooks announced today.  This is very welcome because even though the mobiles HP offers are far more powerful and have more potential for us Media and Entertainment users…many still preferred the MacBooks and MacBook Pros. I think the lineup today demonstrates HP is listening and continuing to bring equally powerful mobiles that now look as good as they perform. I am still running an older Elitebook which was the powerhouse mobile that featured a large 17″ screen, multiple hard drives, Dreamcolor and so on. These kinds of features with the latest tech and Thunderbolt, Z Turbo Drive, etc are a great alternative to what Apple offers. I know what some of you are saying or thinking…ya it still doesn’t run OS X. True…but if sheer performance is what you’re after I welcome you to compare spec for spec. It might change your mind about what Apple offers compared to the very exciting HP Z line. They are just more powerful and rock solid with really good tech support. That in itself is also very important when you run into a challenge someone is there to help you though it. I’ve used it myself several times and it’s just easier to make that call than to jump on google looking for mixed answers to your challenges.

So if you’ve been following the latest Apple products and haven’t felt satisfied or just want to learn more about what options HP has…read on below for all the deets..! 🙂

Below I breakdown the new offerings with the detailed specs from their data sheets so you can compare for yourself and see how they can help you achieve your production and post needs..!
