Hi, I wanted to ask you for information: In HP Z6 workstations, do you know if it is possible to install a Geforce RTX2080 graphics processor?

PauloDomenicoM,

 

Yes, the RTX 2000 series may be used on HP Z6.

 

There is only one Z6 (Xeon Silver 4114 / 10C@2.2GHz ) using an RTX 2080 (not the Super) on Passmark baselines with a 2D= 435 and 3D=11105. There is one Z6 (Xeon Gold 6148  20C@2.4GHz_ ) with an RTX 2080 Ti : 2D= 802 and 3D=10309).  It appears that the quite low clock speeds of the Xeon Scalable processors produce quite low graphics performance.  For comparison, on a Z4, with an I9-7940X 14C@3.1GHz,  an RTX 2080 Ti : 2D= 995 and 3D=17174). That is the dramatic performance difference with a higher CPU clock speed. That effect will be true for both graphics-oriented 3D CAD and compute functions.
