At Hewlett Packard’s press event in New York last week, the company announced several new desktop and mobile workstation models which boast the third-generation of Intel’s Thunderbolt connectivity, together with other notable hardware advances not present in any current Apple Mac computer. Ahead I will clarify many of the advances, and preview pending articles and reviews.

Thunderbolt 3 in HP’s new workstations

So far, I have reviewed several Thunderbolt devices, including disk arrays (RAIDs) and audio/video interfaces. To date, no Apple computer yet to be released offer’s Thunderbolt 3, only 1 and 2. Although I will go into much more detail in upcoming articles, here I will summarize that Thunderbolt 3 reportedly offers double the bandwidth to 40 Gbit/s (5 GB/s or gigabytes per second) of Thunderbolt 2 and also allows multiple 4K Ultra HD monitors to be connected. See my upcoming article Thunderbolt 3 and USB-C: How do they relate?

A matte display is available with all of HP’s newest mobile workstations/laptops

Unlike Apple, which unfortunately stopped offering a matte option in all MacBook models several years ago, all of HP’s newest mobile workstations/laptops are available with a matte screen either at 1080p or DreamColor 4K UHD. The only glossy screens on these new HP mobile workstations/laptops come if you order the touchscreen version.

Desktop Z Workstations can be equipped with up to four super-fast HP Z Turbo Drive G2 modules into one PCIe x16 card. This solution delivers sequential performance up to 9.0GB/s (9.0 gigabytes per second). Additionally, the HP Z Turbo Drive Quad Pro enhances data integrity from power loss protection circuitry to save work in the event of a power failure. The HP Z Turbo Drive Quad Pro can be used with HP Z440, Z640 and Z840 Workstations.

My latest book (paperback + ebook)

My most recent book is available in two languages, and in paperback as well as an ebook. The ebook format is Kindle, but even if you don’t have a Kindle device, you can read Kindle books on many other devices using a free Kindle app. That includes iPad, Android tablets, Mac computers, and Windows computers. Although generally speaking, Kindle books are readable on smartphones like Androids and iPhones, I don’t recommend it for this particular book since it contains both color photos and color comparison charts. The ebook is also DRM-free.

In English, it’s The Castilian Conspiracy. Click here and you will be automatically sent to the closest Amazon book page to you based upon your IP address. Or request ISBN–10: 1456310232 or ISBN–13: 978–1456310233 in your favorite local bookstore.
