What you need to know

  • HP announced the Z2 Mini G9 as the "world's most powerful mini workstation," which can be attached to the rear of a monitor.
  • Inside this incredibly compact PC, you'll find NVIDIA RTX graphics and an Intel Core processor.
  • The Z2 Mini G9 is expected to launch in March and pricing will be confirmed at a later date.

Do you work with professional software and need a PC that's both compact, yet powerful enough to run all your heavy applications? HP has released a few desktops that meet these strict requirements and the Z2 Mini G9 is the company's latest attempt announced at CES 2022 to perfect this form factor. This PC is incredibly compact but manages to pack a punch where it matters most.

HP is a little light on detail right now, but the official launch is expected to be sometime in March, so you can bet we'll have further information in the coming months. What we do know is it's going to be a sleek-looking PC with an attractive design and the ability to hook onto the rear of your monitor, saving vital desk space.

The HPZ2 Mini G9, the world's most powerful mini workstation, brings high performance that's packed into a new versatile, contemporary design. Architects and graphic designers in need of a device small enough to fit space-constrained environments no longer need to sacrifice performance.

Inside, HP will be using the latest low-profile mobile NVIDIA RTX graphics chips and Intel Core processors. We've seen Intel work some magic with its 12th Gen processors and we're expecting some big things from the Z2 Mini G9 when it launches in March. There's no word on pricing just yet, but you can expect to see if be positioned against HP's other workstation products.
