Discover the Possibilities of a Media Desktop
All these features make it an already tempting PC. However, the true appeal of the HP Pavilion Desktop PC starts with whatâ€™s inside the compact chassis. With the AMD Phenom X4 9100e , a digital media enthusiast like you can now experience powerful computing in a true multi-core architecture.
This processor can operate at a maximum of 65 watts, and offers an efficient PC platform that can easily play Blu-ray movies. This quad-core processor will give you extensive multi-tasking capabilities like creating digital content and simultaneously downloading music files off the Web.
Coolâ€™nâ€™Quietâ„¢ 2.0 technology makes it run cool and quiet while saving power, whereas CoolCoreâ„¢ technology allows it to provide efficient performance by dynamically activating or turning off parts of the processor as needed. As if thatâ€™s not enough, Dual Dynamic Power ManagementTM and Independent Dynamic Core technology make for an energy-efficient PC.
The Phenom clocks at a fast 1.8 GHz, uses 512KB and 2MB for its L1 and L2 caches and shares a 2 MB L3 cache. 4GB of available memory enhances the PCâ€™s powerful performance. Now you can watch movies, listen to music, and also view photos quickly with less wait time. A 500GB SATA II hard drive is also included so youâ€™d have ample space for your files.
The aforementioned components are powerful enough to run a 64-bit edition of Windows VistaÂ® Home Premium with Service Pack 1. And the HP Pavilion Slimline s3430f AMD Desktop PC comes with that OS. This latest edition delivers quick access to vast amounts of memory, stronger security, and ultimately a new level of reliability. Its increased memory capabilities improve the performance of applications with heavy memory demands. Data Execution Prevention (DEP) and Microsoft’s PatchGuard provide an additional layer of security against threats.
To complement the 64-bit OS, an NVIDIA GeForce 8500 GT graphics card is installed on the PC. This GPU is essential for accelerating your MicrosoftÂ® Windows VistaÂ® experience. It provides support for MicrosoftÂ® DirectXÂ® 9 and DirectXÂ® 10. It delivers great image quality so you will just love watching HD DVD or Blu-Ray movies.
