It's very German, whatever it is (according to Google).
You sure it isn't saying MHZ? That would be processor speed. However, any
program that *required* that much would be a really intensive program.

Possibly an abbreviation of Hertz, the SI unit of frequency.
It's abbreviation should be Hz.

Assuming your are talking about processor speed.
More likely you need 2.4GHz.

If you included a little more info it would be easier to be more precise in
the answer.

A unit known as Hertz, or Hz. For instance, a 2.4 GHz processor (or CPU),
can handle 2.4 billion operations per second. One GigaHertz is one billion Hertz.

To determine your CPU's speed, right-click on MY COMPUTER and select
Properties and look under "Computer".

I'm thinking you probably mean Hz, don't recall seeing HRZ, which is short
for hertz or what used to be called cycles. Hertz is a unit of frequency
equal to one cycle per second. For example my wireless router operates at
2.4 GHz (gigahertz) or 2.4 billion cycles.

Another truly DUMB response from the worst MVP in history. 2.4GHz is the
clock rate and has absolutely NOTHING to do with operations per second.
Keep up the good work Carey. I saw one poster that gave you credit of 50%
correct answers. Now there's an over-estimate if I ever saw one.

Yes, really intensive, when you consider that the very first PC had a 4.7MHz
processor...

"HRZ" is the usual abbreviation for "Hochschulrechenzentrum."

You need almost two-and-a-half of them.

Years ago when I worked in Broadcasting, we used the term
Kilocycles as in an AM station operating at 1480 Kilocycles.

Hertz is simply the number of times per-second a Sinusoidal
waveform repeats. US power is 60-Hz, I believe Europe has
50-Hz. It's interesting how crowded the spectrum is. Anyone
interested should check out the following pdf that shows the
US Radio frequency allocation.

There's allot of data & content flying around out there.

Hertz became the unit of frequency (after 'double-vibrations' in the 19th
century, and 'cycles per second' in the early 20th). Heinrich Hertz was a
German scientist who experimeted with electromagnetic radiation (and really
invented the first wireless device---NOT Marconi).

I'm sure they are abbreviating Hertz...in this case the current CPU's are
available from (old) 8088 chips operating at 4 MegaHertz (Mhz) to the new
Pentium 4 thet run at 3+ GigaHertz (GHz).
Mega=Million Giga=Billion
The first computer I used was vacuum tube based...all 480,000 of them. It
had miles of wire and a huge building to house it. Each tube worked the same
as 1 transistor.
That would have made it just under 1/2 MHz....
My cell phone has more capacity than that now...LOL
Now they put billions of transistors on one chip...and we still complain
that they are too slow....

You probably mean Hz (Hertz) or GHz* (GigaHertz). It's simply a
measure of your CPU's speed.

A Hertz is a cycle per second. That is, if something is operating at
one Hertz, it's doing something once a second. So a CPU that runs at
2.4GHz does *something* 2.4 billion times a second (the "giga" prefix
means billion).

So what does it do that often? The simplest thing it can, something
like reading a byte from memory, adding two numbers inside the CPU,
something like that. The vendor claiming his CPU runs at 2.4GHz is
telling you that it can do 2,400,000,000 of these tiny operations in
one second.

That's very fast, and a computer with such a CPU will probably run
most of your programs reasonably quickly. There are other things that
determine how fast and how well your computer works: amount and speed
of RAM, amount of free disk space, the video hardware....on and on,
the list is nearly infinite.
