HP Performance Advisor Helps Improve Workstation Performance


New HP Performance Display Offers Affordable Workstation-Class Performance

PALO ALTO, Calif. - HP today announced new workstation-class offerings for professionals, including an update to its HP Performance Advisor software and the new HP ZR2330w Performance Display.

Updated to take a holistic approach to system monitoring, HP Performance Advisor 1.5 provides greater performance across all applications used on a workstation. The new version monitors the computer as a whole versus looking at just specific applications, ensuring that the entire system will run more efficiently.

"HP Performance Advisor takes the pain out of IT management, making it possible for small business owners to optimize their workstations for the specific applications they are running," said Barry Lewis, worldwide product manager, Commercial Solutions, HP. "HP essentially gives its workstation customers an HP Engineer with every workstation, providing them with the full resources of our technical engineers to help identify bottle necks, view system configurations, and maximize performance, ultimately increasing ROI."

Designed for ease-of-use, Performance Advisor notifies users when components like memory are not being used properly and offers suggestions to quickly improve the performance. Version 1.5 offers a simple configuration summary and now provides support for HP Remote Graphics Software (RGS) and Microsoft Windows 8. Users can also access information on GPU performance and temperature

HP Performance Advisor comes pre-loaded on all HP Workstations and reduces the time spent troubleshooting by providing a consolidated report of the workstation's hardware and software configuration. The user can tune the workstation specifically for professional application workloads with just one click.

HP Performance Advisor Version 1.5 is currently shipping for free on all new HP Z and EliteBook Mobile Workstations and is available for download by existing customers at www.hp.com/go/HPPerformanceAdvisor.

Performance Display without Compromise

The new HP ZR2330w Performance Display is a 23-inch LED backlit display with an in-plane switching (IPS) panel for professionals that require affordable workstation-class performance without compromise. IPS technology delivers brilliant and accurate color from almost any angle, providing 10 times higher contrast ratios when viewed at an angle compared to mainstream twisted nematic displays - while maintaining prices that are near those of mainstream business monitors.

The ZR2330w delivers up to 16.7 million on-screen colors and offers full HD resolutions(1), while a 1M:1 dynamic contrast ratio delivers precise views of text, graphics and video(2). The new display features VGA, DVI, and DisplayPort inputs and an integrated two-port USB hub keeps peripherals close at hand.

The HP ZR2330w has an energy-efficient design with mercury-free LED backlighting, a BFR/PVC-free design (3) and arsenic-free (4) display glass. The display is ENERGY STAR and EPEAT Silver (5) qualified and features a four-way comfort-adjust stand for maximum comfort in height, tilt, swivel and pivot.

The HP ZR2330w Performance Display will be available at the end of January for $259 (6).
