Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency

Across all the desktop computers that have been around for around the same time as the Aspire XC-705 the on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies range from 640MHz to 1,300MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency is 1,100MHz. At only 1,100 megahertz, the Aspire XC-705 has a fairly slow on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been around for a similar time to the Aspire XC-705.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Max Memory Bandwidth Supported Processor

The Aspire XC-705 has a quite slow max memory bandwidth supported processor (only 25.6 gigabytes per second) compared to most of the other similar spec desktop computers that came out more than a year ago. Across all the personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the Aspire XC-705 the max memory bandwidth supported processor range from 10GB/s to 68GB/s.

Chart Edit

Very Small Max Internal Memory Supported Processor

At only 32 gigabytes, the Aspire XC-705 has a quite small max internal memory supported processor compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that came out around the same time as the Aspire XC-705. The max internal memory supported processors of medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the Aspire XC-705 range from 2GB to 770GB, and the average max internal memory supported processor is 65GB.

Chart Edit

Only HDD Storage Medium

The storage speed of this PC is HDD, which is the most frequently found storage medium on PCs that were released more than a year ago. A Hard Disk Drive (HDD) is the traditional storage method for computers. A HDD stores the information on magnetic disks. HDD drives are cheap, but they are slower than Flash and SSD bases storage systems.

If the storage speed of this desktop computer is not fast enough for you then you might want to consider the HP EliteDesk 800 G2 Mini (£615.00) (SSD).

3 Other reasons to consider the Acer Aspire XC-705

Released Over a Year Ago

It was over a year ago when Acer released the Aspire XC-705.

Average Processor Clock Speed

At 3.2 gigahertz, the Aspire XC-705 has a pretty average processor clock speed compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the Aspire XC-705.

We compared all the other 3.2GHz processor clock speed desktop computers to this computer and we think the MSI Nightblade B85C which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Computers with a faster processor clock speed that might be worth looking at include the HP Z240 (£644.40) (3.3GHz) which also has a higher rating.
