20 Reasons For

DELL Has Good PC Reviews

DELL is one of the superior personal computer manufacturers according to average reviews from experts and owners, and DELL also has good ratings for its medium processor core personal computers.

Quite Fast Memory Clock Speed Supported by Processor

The DELL 7040 has one of the faster memory clock speeds supported by processors (2,133 megahertz) amongst comparable spec computers of this age. The memory clock speeds supported by processors of medium processor core personal computers that came out more than a year ago range from 800MHz to 2,200MHz.

Chart Edit

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most commonly supported processor operating mode on computers that are a similar age to it.

Chart Edit

Fairly Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Burst Frequency

With an on-board graphics adapter burst frequency of 1,100 megahertz, the DELL 7040 has a quite fast on-board graphics adapter burst frequency compared to most of the other computers that have been around for a similar time to the 7040. The on-board graphics adapter burst frequencies of computers of a comparable age and spec to the 7040 range from 640MHz to 1,200MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter burst frequency is 940MHz.

Chart Edit

4.4 On-Board Graphics Adapter OpenGL Version

This PC supports a 4.4 on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version, which is typical of many similar spec PCs that were released around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

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

Most medium processor core personal computers that came out more than a year ago have between one and seven USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports, including the DELL 7040 which has six USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Max Internal Memory Supported Processor

At 64 gigabytes, the DELL 7040 has a fairly big max internal memory supported processor compared to most of the other desktop computers of a comparable age and type to the 7040. The average max internal memory supported processor of desktop computers that have been available for around the same time as the 7040 is 65GB, and the max internal memory supported processors range from 2GB to 770GB.

Chart Edit

Quite Fast Max Memory Bandwidth Supported Processor

The DELL 7040 has one of the faster max memory bandwidth supported processor (34.1 gigabytes per second) amongst comparable spec personal computers of this age. Across all the computers of a similar spec and age to the 7040 the max memory bandwidth supported processor range from 10GB/s to 68GB/s.

Chart Edit

SSD Storage Medium

The DELL 7040 has an SSD storage medium which is faster than most medium processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to it. Most personal computers that were released one year ago have an HDD storage medium. Solid State Drives (SSD) store information in transistors on a circuit board rather than on optical or magnetic media. This has the advantage of being much faster than a traditional HDD drive.

An SSD storage medium is in fact the best storage speed across all personal computers of a similar spec and age to the 7040.

An HDD storage medium is the worst storage speed across comparable types of computer.

It may also be worth considering one of the other SSD computers currently available including the Zoostorm Intel Core i5 Delta[plb_2756335_price], the Fujitsu P556[plb_3148220_price], or the DELL OptiPlex 3020 SFF[plb_2867167_price] which is cheaper.

This computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that were launched around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Very High System Bus Data Transfer Rate

The lowest system bus data transfer rate of desktop computers of a comparable age and spec to the 7040 is 5GT/s and the highest is 8GT/s. The DELL 7040 has a very high system bus data transfer rate (8 Gigatransfers per second) compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the 7040.

Chart Edit

Six USB 3.0 Ports

The DELL 7040 is a six USB 3.0 port computer.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Maximum Internal Memory

Chart Edit

8 Reasons Against

Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency

The on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies of comparable spec computers that have been available for around the same time as the 7040 range from 640MHz to 1,300MHz. With an on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of only 1,100 megahertz, the DELL 7040 has a quite slow on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the 7040.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Total Storage Capacity

Medium processor core personal computers that came out around the same time as the 7040 have total storage capacity of between 4GB and 3.6TB. With a total storage capacity of only 128 gigabytes, the DELL 7040 has a quite small total storage capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were released one year ago.

We compared this personal computer to all the other 128GB total storage capacity PCs and we think the HP ProDesk 600 G2 Mini[plb_3070061_price], the DELL OptiPlex 3020 SFF[plb_2867167_price], and the Zoostorm Intel Core i5 Delta[plb_2756335_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If you want a bigger total storage capacity then you might also want to consider the Fujitsu P556[plb_3148220_price] (256GB), or the HP 800 G2[plb_3255262_price] (256GB) which is also cheaper.
