Computers built by DELL generally have good ratings.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This personal computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most commonly supported processor operating mode on few processor core PCs that were released around the same time as it.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most commonly found processor cache level on few processor core PCs that have been around for the last year.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This PC supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most frequently supported PCI Express slots version on new few processor core PCs.
Six USB 2.0 Ports
The DELL OptiPlex 3020 has more USB 2.0 ports than most of the comparable spec computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the OptiPlex 3020. This computer is a six USB 2.0 port computer compared to most of the latest personal computers which only have between one and five USB 2.0 ports.
+2 More reasons for
The widths of latest computers range from 34mm to 440mm, and the average width is 170mm. At only 93 millimeters, the OptiPlex 3020 is quite narrow compared to most of the other comparable spec PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the OptiPlex 3020.
5 Reasons Against
Quite Slow Max Memory Bandwidth Supported Processor
With a max memory bandwidth supported processor of only 21.3 gigabytes per second, the OptiPlex 3020's max memory bandwidth supported processor is one of the slowest amongst comparable spec PCs that have been around for around the same time as the OptiPlex 3020. The slowest max memory bandwidth supported processor of recently released comparable spec personal computers is 10GB/s, the fastest is 35GB/s, and the average max memory bandwidth supported processor is 29GB/s.
Only 4 On-Board Graphics Adapter OpenGL Version
The OptiPlex 3020 supports a 4 on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version which is better than most recently released similar spec personal computers. Most computers that have been available for around the same time as it support a 4.4 on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version.
A 4 on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version is actually the worst supported on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version amongst all similar spec PCs that have been available for the last year.
A 4.4 on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version is the best supported on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version amongst similar types of personal computer.
Only 11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This PC supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is typical of many comparable spec computers that have been around for a similar time to it.
Only Two Processor Threads
Most similar spec desktop computers that were released in the last 12 months have between two and three processor threads, including the DELL OptiPlex 3020 which has two processor threads.
+2 More reasons against
Very Small Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
The DELL OptiPlex 3020 has one of the smaller maximum on-board graphics adapter memories (only 1.7 gigabytes) amongst comparable spec computers of this age. Few processor core PCs that have been available for the last year have maximum on-board graphics adapter memories of between 1GB and 64GB, and the average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory is 3.7GB.
5 Other reasons to consider the DELL OptiPlex 3020
Average Processor Clock Speed
At 3.2 gigahertz, the DELL OptiPlex 3020 has a pretty typical processor clock speed compared to most of the other new computers.
If you want a faster processor clock speed then you might also want to look at the HP 600 G1 Mini (£531.36) (3.3GHz).
Average Total Storage Capacity
The DELL OptiPlex 3020 has a pretty typical total storage capacity (500 gigabytes) compared to most of the other few processor core PCs that have been available for a similar time to the OptiPlex 3020.
Personal computers with a bigger total storage capacity that might also be worth considering include the HP 460-p035na (£359.99) (1TB), or the Acer Veriton X2640G (£324.97) (1TB).
Average Hard Drive Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 3020 has a fairly average hard drive capacity compared to most of the other few processor core PCs that came out in the last year.
If you would prefer a bigger hard drive capacity then you might want to look at the HP 460-p035na (£359.99) (1TB).
+3 Other reasons
Average Internal Memory
With an internal memory of 4 gigabytes, the DELL OptiPlex 3020 has a relatively standard internal memory compared to most of the other similar spec desktop computers that have been on the market for the last year.
The storage speed of this PC is HDD, which is typical of many recently released few processor core PCs. 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 you are looking for a desktop computer with a faster storage speed then you might also want to look at the HP Chromebox (£644.98) (SSD), or the DELL OptiPlex 3040 (£386.98) (SSD).
