Hewlett-Packard is expanding its portfolio of enterprise-focused compact desktop towers with the new HP EliteDesk 805 G6 range of portable workhorses that it just officially unveiled this morning. Behind that buzzwordy name is a line of pretty respectable PCs which still fit the definition of small-form computers like their predecessors, but do so while delivering the prowes of an actual, dedicated graphics card.
The GPUs on offer are NVIDIA’s trusty GeForce GTX NVIDIA 1660 Ti, Quadro P620, P1000, P2200, or even the RTX 2060 Super. Yes, we went from no standalone graphics rendering hardware inside the EliteDesk G5 to ray-tracing builds in the span of only a single product generation. Quite a commendable move by HP. Paired with one of the latest Ryzen Pro 4000 Renoir APUs, some of these models offer awe-inspiring performance effectively underlined by the series’ support for up seven monitors.
And all of that from a box the size of a tiny AV receiver or half a a poodle. Regarding availability, Hewlett-Packard is already accepting bulk orders for the entire EliteDesk 805 G6 range, but small- and medium-sized businesses would probably be wise to assume they’re facing at least several weeks’ worth of waiting times, especially a year as openly hostile toward consumer electronics supply chains as 2020 turned out to be.
