DELL has good average ratings for its medium processor core computers as well as across its entire PC range compared to other brands.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This desktop computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that were launched more than a year ago.
Fairly Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
At 1,200 megahertz, the DELL Precision T1700 has a quite fast on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other computers of a similar type and age to the Precision T1700. Across all the medium processor core computers that were released one year ago the on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies range from 700MHz to 1,300MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency is 1,100MHz.
Quite Fast Processor Clock Speed
Desktop computers of this type and age have processor clock speeds of between 1.3GHz and 4GHz. The Precision T1700 has one of the faster processor clock speeds (3.6 gigahertz) amongst PCs of this age.
Fairly Big Internal Memory
With an internal memory of 8 gigabytes, the DELL Precision T1700 has a quite big internal memory compared to most of the other PCs that came out more than a year ago. The average internal memory of medium processor core computers that are a similar age to the Precision T1700 is 7.8GB, and the internal memory range from 2GB to 64GB.
If this computer internal memory is too small for you then you might also want to consider the HP 810-477na (£939.99) (12GB).
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This personal computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is the most frequently found cabling technology on medium processor core computers that have been around for around the same time as it.
+12 More reasons for
L3 Processor Cache Level
This desktop computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most frequently found processor cache level on PCs of a similar type and age to it.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This personal computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most frequently supported PCI Express slots version on medium processor core computers that have been around for a comparable time to it.
Quite 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 computers of this age. The maximum turbo frequencies of similar spec PCs that have been around for a comparable time to the Precision T1700 range from 1.8GHz to 4.4GHz, and the average maximum turbo frequency is 3.6GHz.
Four 2.5" Bays
Most medium processor core computers that came out more than a year ago have between one and nine 2.5" bays, including the DELL Precision T1700 which has four 2.5" bays.
Six USB 2.0 Ports
The Precision T1700 is a six USB 2.0 port PC. Most of the other medium processor core computers that have been on the market for more than a year have between one and nine USB 2.0 ports.
The DELL Precision T1700 is a two DisplayPort personal computer. Most of the other computers of this spec and age have between one and three DisplayPorts.
Two 5.25" Bays
The DELL Precision T1700 is a two 5.25" bay computer. Most of the other medium processor core computers that have been around for more than a year have between one and two 5.25" bays.
Eight Processor Threads
The Precision T1700 has more processor threads than most of the PCs of this spec and age. Most of the medium processor core computers that were released one year ago only have between four and seven processor threads, however this computer has eight processor threads.
Quite Big Processor Cache
The smallest processor cache of PCs that have been on the market for a comparable time to the Precision T1700 is 2MB, the biggest is 10MB, and the average processor cache is 6.6MB. The DELL Precision T1700 has one of the bigger processor caches (8 megabytes) amongst medium processor core computers 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.
Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the Precision T1700 is more than most personal computers of this type and age. This desktop computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most frequently found memory slot found on personal computers of this spec and age.
6 Reasons Against
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this desktop computer is HDD, which is the most frequently found storage medium on medium processor core computers that were released more than a year ago. 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.
Desktop computers with a faster storage speed that might be worth looking at include the Fujitsu W530 (£127.99) (SSD).
Quite Small Hard Drive Capacity
The average hard drive capacity of medium processor core computers that were released more than a year ago is 860GB. The DELL Precision T1700 has a fairly small hard drive capacity (only 500 gigabytes) compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that are a comparable age to the Precision T1700.
Only 11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This personal computer supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is typical of many personal computers of this age and spec.
Quite Small Total Storage Capacity
Across all the medium processor core computers that are a comparable age to the Precision T1700 the total storage capacity range from 4GB to 3.6TB, and the average total storage capacity is 770GB. The DELL Precision T1700 has one of the smaller total storage capacity (only 500 gigabytes) amongst medium processor core computers of this age.
If you want a desktop computer with a bigger total storage capacity then you might also want to look at the Chillblast Fusion Sword 2 (£589.98) (1TB).
+3 More reasons against
Very Small Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
The Precision T1700 has one of the smaller maximum on-board graphics adapter memories (only 1.024 gigabytes) amongst similar spec computers of this age. The maximum on-board graphics adapter memories of medium processor core computers that have been available for around the same time as the Precision T1700 range from 1GB to 64GB.
Only One PCI Express X1 Slot
The Precision T1700 is a one PCI Express x1 slot computer.
