This computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that have been available for a similar time to it.
Fairly Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
The Precision T1700 has a fairly fast on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency (1,200 megahertz) compared to most of the other similar spec PCs that have been around for a comparable time to the Precision T1700. The slowest on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of similar spec computers that were launched around the same time as the Precision T1700 is 500MHz, the fastest is 1,300MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency is 1,100MHz.
DELL Has Good Reviews for Its PCs
Based on 380 user and expert reviews, DELL has good ratings for its PCs. DELL also has good ratings specifically for its medium processor core personal computers.
Quite Fast Processor Clock Speed
With a processor clock speed of 3.6 gigahertz, the Precision T1700 has one of the faster processor clock speeds amongst similar spec personal computers of this age. Across all the personal computers of a similar type and age to the Precision T1700 the processor clock speeds range from 1.3GHz to 4GHz.
Alternative 3.6GHz processor clock speed PCs currently available that you might want to consider include the HP Z230 which has better reviews.
SSD Storage Medium
The Precision T1700 has a faster storage speed than most personal computers that were launched around the same time as it. This computer has an SSD storage medium, whereas most medium processor core personal computers that were released one year ago 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 in fact the best storage speed across all similar spec computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the Precision T1700.
The worst storage speed across comparable types of desktop computer is HDD.
If you would prefer a computer with a faster storage speed then you might want to consider the Zotac ZBOX PI320 (Flash), or the Asus CHROMEBIT (£99.97) (Flash) which is also higher rated.
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is the most commonly found cabling technology on PCs of this age and spec.
+12 More reasons for
L3 Processor Cache Level
This computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many comparable spec desktop computers that have been around for a similar time to it.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This PC supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many computers that came out more than a year ago.
Fairly Fast Maximum Turbo Frequency
With a maximum turbo frequency of 4 gigahertz, the Precision T1700 has one of the faster maximum turbo frequencies amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age. Across all the PCs of this age and spec the maximum turbo frequencies range from 1.8GHz to 4.4GHz, and the average maximum turbo frequency is 3.6GHz.
Four 2.5" Bays
Most comparable spec PCs that have been around for more than a year have between one and nine 2.5" bays, including the Precision T1700 which has four 2.5" bays.
The Precision T1700 is a two DisplayPort computer.
Six USB 2.0 Ports
The Precision T1700 is a six USB 2.0 port computer.
Fairly Big Solid-State Drive Capacity
The smallest solid-state drive capacity of personal computers of a similar spec and age to the Precision T1700 is 8GB, the biggest is 1TB, and the average solid-state drive capacity is 210GB. With a solid-state drive capacity of 256 gigabytes, the Precision T1700 has one of the bigger solid-state drive capacities amongst comparable spec PCs of this age.
Two PCI Express X16 (Gen 3.x) Slots
The DELL Precision T1700 is a two PCI Express x16 (Gen 3.x) slot PC. Most of the other PCs of a comparable age and spec to the Precision T1700 have between one and two PCI Express x16 (Gen 3.x) slots.
Quite Big Processor Cache
The Precision T1700 has one of the bigger processor caches (8 megabytes) amongst similar spec computers of this age. The smallest processor cache of medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the Precision T1700 is 2MB and the biggest is 10MB.
Fairly Big Maximum Internal Memory
Across all the medium processor core personal computers that came out around the same time as the Precision T1700 the maximum internal memory range from 2GB to 520GB, and the average maximum internal memory is 33GB. At 32 gigabytes, the DELL Precision T1700 has a quite big maximum internal memory compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the Precision T1700.
Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the Precision T1700 is more than most PCs of a similar spec and age to it. This computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most frequently found memory slot found on computers of a comparable spec and age to the Precision T1700.
2 Reasons Against
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
With a total storage capacity of only 256 gigabytes, the DELL Precision T1700 has one of the smaller total storage capacity amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age. The total storage capacity of desktop computers of a similar age and spec to the Precision T1700 range from 4GB to 3.6TB.
It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 256GB total storage capacity personal computers currently available including the HP EliteDesk 800 G1 which has better reviews.
If you want a bigger total storage capacity then you might also want to consider the HP 280 G1 (£343.19) (500GB).
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 personal computers of this spec and age.
