64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most commonly supported processor operating mode on few processor core computers that have been around for more than a year.

Chart Edit

Quite Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency

Few processor core computers that came out around the same time as the OptiPlex 3020 have on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies of between 750MHz and 1,200MHz. With an on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of 1,150 megahertz, the OptiPlex 3020 has one of the faster on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies amongst comparable spec desktop computers of this age.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Max Internal Memory Supported Processor

At 32 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 3020 has a fairly big max internal memory supported processor compared to most of the other desktop computers that are a comparable age to the OptiPlex 3020. Similar spec computers that are a comparable age to the OptiPlex 3020 have max internal memory supported processors of between 4GB and 64GB, and the average max internal memory supported processor is 27GB.

Chart Edit

Quite Fast Processor Clock Speed

The slowest processor clock speed of few processor core computers that have been around for more than a year is 0.8GHz and the fastest is 3.9GHz. With a processor clock speed of 3.6 gigahertz, the OptiPlex 3020 has one of the faster processor clock speeds amongst few processor core computers of this age.

If you would prefer a personal computer with a faster processor clock speed then you might want to consider the Fujitsu P420 E85+[plb_3331404_price] (3.7GHz), or the HP 280 G1[plb_3714387_price] (3.7GHz) which is also cheaper.
