Dual Quadro p4000 in Z440 workstation not supported??

HP Recommended
HP z440
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

In the Z440 Specs overview PDF is says that it DOES support 2 Nvidia Quadro M4000 cards

but that it supports only a SINGLE Quadro p4000 card. Is this really the case?

 

The M4000 is a 120 Watt card

The P4000 is a 105 Watt card

 

I have the 700 Watt PSU

 

Why would it possibly be unsupported in the Z440?? I would really love to add another p4000 to speed up rendering times.

 

Is there someone running two quadro p4000 cards in a z440 system without a problem?

 

Hope hearing from someone who knows the answer

 

All the best,

Wieger

I still very much have this question today

No one tried this?

 

I decided to mail my dealer with this question and they contacted HP.

The answer was:

 

"We only support and guarantee 1x P4000 on the Z440"

 

Yes.

I've read that in de specsheet.. 

 

Does this mean it might just work, but isn't officially supported?

The answer to your question is yes.

 

HP does extensive qualification testing before certifying that some add-on works reliably and in combination with their other certified components for that workstation.  You can imagine the combinations and permutations.  Many of us are using components that were never certified to work by HP but do just fine.

 

HP must choose many times that it is just not worth the effort because the market for such a combo is just so small in the "lesser" Z440 but they may justify it for the Z640.  And, the motherboards are almost identical.

 

That is part of this forum.... you test two and let us know.  We test something else and post it here to let you know.  We self-certify.
