Videoguys' Guide to HP Z Workstations:
The Video Editors Best Choice
When it comes to choosing a workstation that delivers uncompromising performance, there’s simply no contest. Take it from experienced pros like Rob Legato, Jonathan Bird, Devin Super Tramp and the techs at Videoguys.com.
Videoguys.com recommends the HP z Workstations. HP uses only the best components, and these workstations come optimized for digital content creation. The new HP z820 is the power users choice, and the best dual Xeon solution on the market. We like the z420 single Xeon machines for professionals who don't require as much horsepower, but demand the same level of reliability and stability. When it comes to stability, reliability and performance HP workstations set the bar by which all others are judged. They are more expensive then a DIY build, but you get what you pay for.
HP Z Workstations feature awesome performance straight out of the box

Even the most powerful computer can be handicapped by a sub-par GPU, which is why HP Z Workstations come equipped with industry-leading NVIDIA Quadro professional graphics. Designed and built specifically for professional workstations, NVIDIA Quadro GPUs power more than 200 professional applications across a broad range of industries including manufacturing, media and entertainment, sciences, and energy. Professionals trust them to realize their most ambitious visions – whether it’s product design, visualization and simulation, or spectacular visual storytelling – and get results to market faster, more profitably, and with superior visual quality.
Adobe Premiere Pro and After Effects make specific use of the NVIDIA Quadro professional graphics boards and their own parallel computing platform and programming model called “CUDA”. Adobe applications have specific functions that require CUDA or OptiX and this performance acceleration is only available using NVIDIA CUDA-enabled video cards and display systems.
