17 Reasons For
DELL Desktop Computers Have Good Reviews
We calculated the average reviews for all DELL computers and also specifically for DELL medium processor core personal computers and found that in both cases DELL had good reviews.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to it.
Quite Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
Across all the PCs of a similar type and age to the OptiPlex 9020 the on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies range from 640MHz to 1,300MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency is 1,100MHz. At 1,200 megahertz, the OptiPlex 9020 has a quite fast on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other PCs of a comparable type and age to the OptiPlex 9020.
Fairly Fast Processor Clock Speed
The average processor clock speed of personal computers that are a comparable age to the OptiPlex 9020 is 3.1GHz. With a processor clock speed of 3.6 gigahertz, the OptiPlex 9020 has a fairly fast processor clock speed compared to most of the other PCs that are a comparable age to the OptiPlex 9020.
If this desktop computer processor clock speed is too slow for you then you might also want to consider the HP 440 MT[plb_2949579_price] (3.7GHz and higher rated).
SSD Storage Medium
The OptiPlex 9020 has an SSD storage medium which is faster than the HDD storage medium found on most PCs of a comparable age and type to it. Solid State Drives (SSD) store information in transistors on a circuit board rather than on optical or magnetic media. This has the advantage of being much faster than a traditional HDD drive.
An SSD storage medium is in fact the best storage speed across all desktop computers that have been around for more than a year.
Across comparable types of desktop computer the worst storage speed is HDD.
Two PCI Express X16 Slots
The OptiPlex 9020 has more PCI Express x16 slots than most of the desktop computers that are a comparable age to the OptiPlex 9020. This DELL personal computer is a two PCI Express x16 slot desktop computer compared to most of the medium processor core personal computers that have been available for a comparable time to the OptiPlex 9020 which only have one PCI Express x16 slot.
