L3 Processor Cache Level
This personal computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most frequently found processor cache level on medium processor core computers that are a comparable age to it.
Six USB 2.0 Ports
The OptiPlex 3020 is a six USB 2.0 port desktop computer. Most of the other new medium processor core computers have between one and nine USB 2.0 ports.
The widths of comparable spec personal computers that are a similar age to the OptiPlex 3020 range from 34mm to 7,100mm. With a width of only 93 millimeters, the DELL OptiPlex 3020 is fairly narrow compared to most of the other newly released similar spec computers.
10 Reasons Against
Only Two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
The OptiPlex 3020 is a two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port PC.
Very Small Max Internal Memory Supported Processor
At only 32 gigabytes, the DELL OptiPlex 3020 has a quite small max internal memory supported processor compared to most of the other desktop computers that were released in the last year. The max internal memory supported processors of medium processor core computers that are a comparable age to the OptiPlex 3020 range from 2GB to 1.6TB.
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 comparable spec PCs that came out in the last year. Most new desktop computers support a 4.4 on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version.
This personal computer's on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version (4) is in fact the worst supported on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version across all medium processor core computers that were launched around the same time as the OptiPlex 3020.
Across similar types of personal computer the best supported on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version is 4.4.
Only 11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This desktop computer supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is the most commonly supported on-board graphics adapter DirectX version on recently released personal computers.
+7 More reasons against
Very Small Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory
With a discrete graphics adapter memory of only 1,024 megabyte, the OptiPlex 3020 has a quite small discrete graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that were released in the last year. The smallest discrete graphics adapter memory of newly released medium processor core computers is 510MB and the biggest is 8.2GB.
Only Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the OptiPlex 3020 is more than most medium processor core computers that have been around for a similar time to it. The most commonly found memory slot is 4x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this computer. The memory slots 2x DIMM are also found on this DELL desktop computer.
Only 10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Rate
This desktop computer supports a 10|100|1000 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN data rate, which is the most commonly supported Ethernet LAN data rate on medium processor core computers that have been available for a comparable time to it.
Only Two USB 3.0 Ports
The DELL OptiPlex 3020 is a two USB 3.0 port computer. Most of the other medium processor core computers that have been on the market for the last year have between one and seven USB 3.0 ports.
Very Small Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
The OptiPlex 3020 has one of the smaller maximum on-board graphics adapter memories (only 1.024 gigabytes) amongst desktop computers of this age. The maximum on-board graphics adapter memories of medium processor core computers that are a comparable age to the OptiPlex 3020 range from 1GB to 64GB, and the average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory is 7.8GB.
Very Low System Bus Data Transfer Rate
At only 5 Gigatransfers per second, the OptiPlex 3020 has a quite low system bus data transfer rate compared to most of the other comparable spec computers that have been available for the last year. The average system bus data transfer rate of comparable spec PCs that have been available for a similar time to the OptiPlex 3020 is 7.1GT/s.
5 Other reasons to consider the DELL OptiPlex 3020
Average Processor Clock Speed
The OptiPlex 3020 has a pretty standard processor clock speed (3.3 gigahertz) compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that have been around for a comparable time to the OptiPlex 3020.
If this desktop computer processor clock speed is too slow for you then you might also want to look at the P310 (£862.80) (3.4GHz), or the P310 (£955.20) (3.4GHz) both from Lenovo.
Average Total Storage Capacity
With a total storage capacity of 500 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 3020 has a fairly average total storage capacity compared to most of the other desktop computers that came out around the same time as the OptiPlex 3020.
If you are looking for a bigger total storage capacity then you might want to look at the 240 Tower (£1,719.00) (512GB), the Z240 (£1,489.99) (512GB), or the 240 MT (512GB) all from HP.
Average Hard Drive Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the DELL OptiPlex 3020 has a pretty typical hard drive capacity compared to most of the other PCs that have been available for around the same time as the OptiPlex 3020.
If this DELL personal computer hard drive capacity is too small for you then you might want to consider the OptiPlex 3040 (£401.76) (1TB), or the T3420 (£691.98) (1TB) both from DELL.
+3 Other reasons
Average Internal Memory
The OptiPlex 3020 has a fairly standard internal memory (4 gigabytes) compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that were released in the last 12 months.
HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this desktop computer is HDD, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that have been around for a similar time to it. 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 want a computer with a faster storage speed then you might also want to look at the 800 G2 SFF (SSD), or the 600 G2 Mini (£1,282.66) (SSD) both from HP.
