This few processor core PC is one of the newest personal computers to be released. As such it is likely to have more advanced features than some of the older personal computers.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This desktop computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most commonly supported processor operating mode on similar spec computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to it.

Chart Edit

4.4 On-Board Graphics Adapter OpenGL Version

This personal computer supports a 4.4 on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version, which is the most frequently supported on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version on recently released few processor core computers.

Chart Edit

Six USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports

Most of the other comparable spec computers that have been around for the last year only have between one and five USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports, however the DELL 7040 has six USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.

Chart Edit

Fairly Fast Memory Clock Speed Supported by Processor

New few processor core computers have memory clock speeds supported by processors of between 1,300MHz and 1,900MHz. With a memory clock speed supported by processor of 1,866 megahertz, the DELL 7040 has a quite fast memory clock speed supported by processor compared to most of the other latest few processor core computers.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Max Internal Memory Supported Processor

The smallest max internal memory supported processor of comparable spec personal computers that are a similar age to the 7040 is 8GB, the biggest is 64GB, and the average max internal memory supported processor is 42GB. With a max internal memory supported processor of 64 gigabytes, the DELL 7040 has a fairly big max internal memory supported processor compared to most of the other personal computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the 7040.

Chart Edit

Fairly Fast Max Memory Bandwidth Supported Processor

The DELL 7040 has a quite fast max memory bandwidth supported processor (34.1 gigabytes per second) compared to most of the other few processor core computers that have been on the market for the last year. Across all the latest few processor core computers the max memory bandwidth supported processor range from 21GB/s to 35GB/s, and the average max memory bandwidth supported processor is 30GB/s.

Chart Edit

Quite Fast Processor Clock Speed

The DELL 7040 has a fairly fast processor clock speed (3.7 gigahertz) compared to most of the other comparable spec computers that were launched around the same time as the 7040. Few processor core computers that have been available for a similar time to the 7040 have processor clock speeds of between 1GHz and 3.7GHz.

Chart Edit

Fusion Drive Storage Medium

The DELL 7040 has a Fusion Drive storage medium which is faster than most comparable spec PCs that have been available for around the same time as it. Most new personal computers have a Flash storage medium. A fusion drive uses a combination of a traditional Hard Disk Drive (HDD) and a Solid State Drive (SSD). The bulk of the storage is on the HDD which is cheaper, but items which are accessed frequently are stored in the SSD to improve performance. The best storage speed of all new desktop computers is SSD and the worst is HDD.

Chart Edit

3 PCI Express Slots Version

This PC supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many few processor core computers that have been around for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Quite Fast Memory Clock Speed

Recently released few processor core computers have memory clock speeds of between 1,600MHz and 2,200MHz, and the average memory clock speed is 1,800MHz. The DELL 7040 has one of the faster memory clock speeds (2,133 megahertz) amongst desktop computers of this age.

Chart Edit

DDR4-SDRAM Internal Memory Type

The DELL 7040 has a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type which is newer than the DDR3L-SDRAM internal memory type found on most comparable spec personal computers that have been around for the last year.

A DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type is in fact the best internal memory type amongst all comparable spec desktop computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the 7040.

The worst internal memory type across comparable types of personal computer is DDR3-SDRAM.
