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 personal computers that have been available for a similar time to it.
Fairly Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
The on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies of computers of a comparable spec and age to the OptiPlex 3020 MT range from 750MHz to 1,200MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency is 1,100MHz. The OptiPlex 3020 MT has one of the faster on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies (1,150 megahertz) amongst few processor core computers of this age.
Fairly Fast Processor Clock Speed
The average processor clock speed of few processor core computers that have been around for a similar time to the OptiPlex 3020 MT is 2.9GHz, and the processor clock speeds range from 1GHz to 3.9GHz. At 3.5 gigahertz, the OptiPlex 3020 MT has a fairly fast processor clock speed compared to most of the other comparable spec personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the OptiPlex 3020 MT.
There are a number of alternative 3.5GHz processor clock speed computers currently available which you might want to consider including the HP ProDesk 600[plb_2435689_price] which has better reviews.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many personal computers that have been around for a comparable time to it.
+9 More reasons for
L3 Processor Cache Level
This computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most frequently found processor cache level on few processor core computers that have been around for more than two years.
Three PCI Express X1 Slots
The OptiPlex 3020 MT has more PCI Express x1 slots than most of the comparable spec computers that are a similar age to the OptiPlex 3020 MT. This PC is a three PCI Express x1 slot computer compared to most of the few processor core computers that were released more than two years ago which only have between one and two PCI Express x1 slots.
Six USB 2.0 Ports
The DELL OptiPlex 3020 MT is a six USB 2.0 port PC.
Two 5.25" Bays
The OptiPlex 3020 MT has more 5.25" bays than most of the personal computers of this type and age. Most of the similar spec desktop computers that were released more than two years ago only have one 5.25" bay, however this PC has two 5.25" bays.
Four Processor Threads
The OptiPlex 3020 MT has more processor threads than most of the personal computers of a similar spec and age to the OptiPlex 3020 MT. Most of the personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the OptiPlex 3020 MT only have between one and three processor threads, however this desktop computer has four processor threads.
Supports One Case Placement
The number of placements supported by the OptiPlex 3020 MT is more than most similar spec computers that were released around the same time as it. This computer supports a Vertical case placement, which is the most commonly supported case placement supported by PCs of a similar type and age to the OptiPlex 3020 MT.
Has One Cable Included
The OptiPlex 3020 MT has a greater number of included cables than most personal computers of this age and type. This computer has an AC cable included, which is the most frequently found cable included found on computers of this spec and age.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this PC is DVD Super Multi, which is the most commonly found optical drive type on computers that were released more than two years ago.
4 Reasons Against
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this personal computer is HDD, which is the most frequently found storage medium on personal computers of this age and type. 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.
Very Small Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
Personal computers of this age and type have maximum on-board graphics adapter memories of between 1GB and 16GB, and the average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory is 1.6GB. With a maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of only 1.024 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 3020 MT has one of the smaller maximum on-board graphics adapter memories amongst similar spec computers of this age.
Quite Small Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory
With a discrete graphics adapter memory of only 1,024 megabyte, the OptiPlex 3020 MT has a quite small discrete graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other PCs of this age and type. Across all the few processor core computers that were launched around the same time as the OptiPlex 3020 MT the discrete graphics adapter memory range from 250MB to 4.1GB, and the average discrete graphics adapter memory is 1.6GB.
PCs of this age and type have weights of between 600g and 16kg, and the average weight is 5.4kg. The OptiPlex 3020 MT is one of the heavier PCs that came out around the same time as the OptiPlex 3020 MT (9.4 kilograms) amongst similar spec PCs of this age.
+1 More reason against
4 Other reasons to consider the DELL OptiPlex 3020 MT
Released Over Two Years Ago
It was over two years ago when DELL released the OptiPlex 3020 MT.
Average Total Storage Capacity
The OptiPlex 3020 MT has a fairly standard total storage capacity (500 gigabytes) compared to most of the other similar spec personal computers that were released more than two years ago.
We compared all the other 500GB total storage capacity PCs to this desktop computer and we think because of it's better review score, the ProDesk 600 G1[pl_2265595_price], and the ProDesk 600 G1 SFF[pl_2402877_price] both from HP or the Lenovo ThinkCentre E73 SFF[plb_1667245_price] is also worth considering.
If this personal computer total storage capacity is too small for you then you might want to look at the Zoostorm Intel Celeron 1037U[plb_2784636_price] (1TB) which is also higher rated.
Average Hard Drive Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 3020 MT has a fairly average hard drive capacity compared to most of the other PCs of a similar age and type to the OptiPlex 3020 MT.
There are a number of alternative 500GB hard drive capacity PCs currently available that you might also want to consider including because of it's better review score, the ProDesk 600 G1[pl_2265595_price], or the ProDesk 600 G1 SFF[pl_2402877_price] both from HP or the Lenovo ThinkCentre E73 SFF[plb_1667245_price].
+2 Other reasons
Average Internal Memory
At 4 gigabytes, the DELL OptiPlex 3020 MT has a pretty typical internal memory compared to most of the other few processor core computers that are a similar age to the OptiPlex 3020 MT.
We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 4GB memory desktop computers currently available including because of it's better review score, the ProDesk 600 G1[pl_2265595_price], or the ProDesk 600 G1 SFF[pl_2402877_price] both from HP or the Lenovo ThinkCentre E73 SFF[plb_1667245_price].
If this personal computer internal memory is not big enough for you then you might want to look at the HP ProDesk 600[plb_2435689_price] (8GB), or the DELL OptiPlex 3020[plb_2837780_price] (8GB) which also has a higher rating.
