Medium processor core personal computers built by DELL have good reviews on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all personal computers (not just medium processor core personal computers) and found that DELL also has good reviews across its entire range.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This personal computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on PCs of a similar age and type to it.
Quite Fast Processor Clock Speed
At 3.6 gigahertz, the OptiPlex 9020 has a fairly fast processor clock speed compared to most of the other PCs of a similar spec and age to the OptiPlex 9020. The slowest processor clock speed of similar spec personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the OptiPlex 9020 is 1.3GHz, the fastest is 4GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 3.1GHz.
If you are looking for a desktop computer with a faster processor clock speed then you might also want to look at the Apple ME253 (3.7GHz).
SSD Storage Medium
The OptiPlex 9020 has a faster storage speed than most personal computers of this type and age. This personal computer has an SSD storage medium, whereas most medium processor core personal computers that came out around the same time as it have an HDD storage medium. 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.
This desktop computer's storage speed (SSD) is actually the best storage speed amongst all comparable spec PCs that were released more than a year ago.
Amongst comparable types of desktop computer the worst storage speed is HDD.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This desktop computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for more than a year.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many PCs of this type and age.
+8 More reasons for
Quite Fast Maximum Turbo Frequency
Similar spec desktop computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the OptiPlex 9020 have maximum turbo frequencies of between 1.8GHz and 4.4GHz. With a maximum turbo frequency of 4 gigahertz, the OptiPlex 9020 has a fairly fast maximum turbo frequency compared to most of the other personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the OptiPlex 9020.
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is the most frequently found cabling technology on medium processor core personal computers that have been around for a similar time to it.
Two PCI Express X16 Slots
The OptiPlex 9020 has more PCI Express x16 slots than most of the personal computers of this age and spec. This DELL desktop computer is a two PCI Express x16 slot personal computer compared to most of the desktop computers that have been around for around the same time as the OptiPlex 9020 which only have one PCI Express x16 slot.
Gold EPEAT Compliance
This PC has a Gold EPEAT compliance, which is the most frequently found EPEAT compliance on desktop computers that were released more than a year ago.
Eight Processor Threads
The OptiPlex 9020 has more processor threads than most of the similar spec PCs that have been around for around the same time as the OptiPlex 9020. This DELL PC is a eight processor thread personal computer compared to most of the medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the OptiPlex 9020 which only have between four and seven processor threads.
Supports One Case Placement
The number of placements supported by the OptiPlex 9020 is more than most medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to it. This personal computer supports a Vertical case placement, which is the most frequently supported case placement supported by medium processor core personal computers that were launched around the same time as the OptiPlex 9020.
Has One Memory Slot
The OptiPlex 9020 has a greater number of memory slots than most desktop computers of this type and age. This DELL computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most frequently found memory slot found on medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the OptiPlex 9020.
1 Reason Against
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
The smallest total storage capacity of similar spec computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the OptiPlex 9020 is 4GB and the biggest is 3.6TB. The OptiPlex 9020 has a quite small total storage capacity (only 256 gigabytes) compared to most of the other PCs of a comparable age and spec to the OptiPlex 9020.
Computers with a bigger total storage capacity that might be worth considering include the Lenovo ThinkCentre E73 SFF (£329.99) (500GB).
2 Other reasons to consider the DELL OptiPlex 9020
Released Over a Year Ago
This desktop computer was released over a year ago.
Average Internal Memory
With an internal memory of 8 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 9020 has a pretty typical internal memory compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been available for more than a year.
If you would prefer a computer with a bigger internal memory then you might want to look at the Aspire XC-705 (£449.00) (10GB), or the Aspire TC-705 (£626.99) (12GB) both from Acer.
