64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This PC supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on computers that came out around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Quite Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency

The on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies of few processor core computers that have been around for the last year range from 790MHz to 1,200MHz. The OptiPlex 3020M has a quite fast on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency (1,150 megahertz) compared to most of the other newly released PCs.

Chart Edit

HDD Storage Medium

The storage speed of this PC is HDD, which is typical of many few processor core computers that have been on the market for the last year. 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 personal computer with a faster storage speed then you might also want to look at the Chromebox 3010[pl_2672334_price] (SSD), or the OptiPlex 3040[pl_3242114_price] (SSD) both from DELL or the HP 400 G2[plb_3768563_price] (SSD).
