The optical drive type of this desktop computer is DVD Super Multi, which is typical of many similar spec PCs that have been on the market for the last year.
GDDR Discrete Graphics Memory Type
This PC supports a GDDR3 discrete graphics memory type, which is typical of many similar spec personal computers that have been around for around the same time as it.
The widths of medium processor core computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Precision T1700 range from 34mm to 7,100mm, and the average width is 200mm. The Precision T1700 is one of the narrower new similar spec computers (only 92.6 millimeters) amongst medium processor core computers of this age.
8 Reasons Against
Very Small Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory
The Precision T1700 has one of the smaller discrete graphics adapter memory capacities (only 2 gigabytes) amongst desktop computers of this age. The smallest discrete graphics adapter memory of recently released medium processor core computers is 0.5GB, the biggest is 8.2TB, and the average discrete graphics adapter memory is 320GB.
Quite Slow Max Memory Bandwidth Supported Processor
The Precision T1700 has a quite slow max memory bandwidth supported processor (only 25.6 gigabytes per second) compared to most of the other comparable spec computers that came out in the last 12 months. The max memory bandwidth supported processor of latest personal computers range from 10GB/s to 77GB/s, and the average max memory bandwidth supported processor is 33GB/s.
Very Small Max Internal Memory Supported Processor
The max internal memory supported processors of computers that were released in the last 12 months range from 2GB to 1.6TB. The DELL Precision T1700 has one of the smaller max internal memory supported processors (only 32 gigabytes) amongst medium processor core computers of this age.
Only 4 On-Board Graphics Adapter OpenGL Version
The Precision T1700 supports a 4 on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version which is better than most PCs that have been around for a similar time to it. Most medium processor core computers that have been available for a comparable time to it support a 4.4 on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version.
This computer's on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version (4) is in fact the worst supported on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version across all new medium processor core computers.
A 4.4 on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version is the best supported on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version across similar types of computer.
+5 More reasons against
Only 11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This desktop computer supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is typical of many similar spec computers that have been around for the last year.
Only 10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Rate
This computer supports a 10|100|1000 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN data rate, which is typical of many similar spec desktop computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to it.
Very Small Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
With a maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of only 1.024 gigabytes, the Precision T1700 has a fairly small maximum on-board graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other new medium processor core computers. New comparable spec computers have maximum on-board graphics adapter memories of between 1GB and 64GB, and the average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory is 7.8GB.
Very Low System Bus Data Transfer Rate
The average system bus data transfer rate of medium processor core computers that were launched around the same time as the Precision T1700 is 7.1GT/s, and the system bus data transfer rates range from 5GT/s to 8GT/s. With a system bus data transfer rate of only 5 Gigatransfers per second, the Precision T1700 has one of the lower system bus data transfer rates amongst computers of this age.
6 Other reasons to consider the DELL Precision T1700
Released Eleven Months Ago
DELL released the Precision T1700 eleven months ago.
Average Processor Clock Speed
The Precision T1700 has a pretty average processor clock speed (3.3 gigahertz) compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that were released in the last 12 months.
If you are looking for a faster processor clock speed then you might also want to consider the 400 G3 MT[pl_3343157_price] (3.4GHz and cheaper), or the 240 SFF[pl_3345413_price] (3.4GHz and cheaper) both from HP.
Average Internal Memory
At 8 gigabytes, the Precision T1700 has a fairly average internal memory compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that came out in the last year.
It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 8GB memory desktop computers currently available including the Lenovo H50[plb_2497838_price] which is cheaper.
If you want a computer with a bigger internal memory then you might also want to look at the HP 550-270na[plb_3730370_price] (12GB) which is also cheaper.
+4 Other reasons
Average Total Storage Capacity
With a total storage capacity of 500 gigabytes, the Precision T1700 has a fairly standard total storage capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that were released in the last 12 months.
Desktop computers with a bigger total storage capacity that might also be worth looking at include the Alienware Steam Machine[plb_3359792_price] (1TB and cheaper).
Average Hard Drive Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the Precision T1700 has a relatively average hard drive capacity compared to most of the other new computers.
If this DELL PC hard drive capacity is not big enough for you then you might also want to consider the Alienware Steam Machine[plb_3359792_price] (1TB) which is also cheaper.
HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this personal computer is HDD, which is typical of many computers that are a similar age 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.
It may also be worth considering one of the alternative HDD desktop computers currently available including cheaper PCs such as the Steam Machine[pl_3359792_price], or the Steam Machine[pl_3359791_price] both from Alienware.
If you want a computer with a faster storage speed then you might want to consider the DELL 7040[plb_3755248_price] (SSD) which is also cheaper.
