14 Reasons For

DELL Computers Have Good Reviews

DELL medium processor core personal computers have good ratings on average and across all desktop computers DELL is one of the better rated brands.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This personal computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many comparable spec PCs that were released around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

SSD Storage Medium

The Precision T1700 has an SSD storage medium which is faster than most comparable spec PCs that were released in the last year. Most recently released desktop computers 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 amongst all similar spec computers that have been available for the last year.

The worst storage speed amongst similar types of desktop computer is HDD.

Chart Edit

Two 5.25" Bays

The DELL Precision T1700 is a two 5.25" bay PC.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Solid-State Drive Capacity

Across all the PCs that have been available for the last year the solid-state drive capacities range from 32GB to 520GB. At 256 gigabytes, the DELL Precision T1700 has a quite big solid-state drive capacity compared to most of the other comparable spec computers that are a similar age to the Precision T1700.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Processor Cache

The DELL Precision T1700 has a fairly big processor cache (8 megabytes) compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the Precision T1700. Comparable spec desktop computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Precision T1700 have processor caches of between 2MB and 10MB, and the average processor cache is 6.7MB.

Chart Edit

Two 3.5" Bays

The Precision T1700 is a two 3.5" bay computer. Most of the other desktop computers that were released in the last year have between one and three 3.5" bays.

Chart Edit

Supports One Case Placement

The number of placements supported by the Precision T1700 is more than most similar spec desktop computers that were released in the last 12 months. This DELL computer supports a Vertical case placement, which is the most commonly supported case placement supported by computers that have been available for around the same time as the Precision T1700.

Chart Edit

Has One Memory Slot

The DELL Precision T1700 has a greater number of memory slots than most recently released personal computers. This computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most frequently found memory slot found on comparable spec personal computers that were launched in the last 12 months.

Chart Edit

GDDR Discrete Graphics Memory Type

This personal computer supports a GDDR3 discrete graphics memory type, which is typical of many recently released medium processor core personal computers.

Chart Edit

12 Reasons Against

Quite Slow Max Memory Bandwidth Supported Processor

The max memory bandwidth supported processor of similar spec personal computers that were released in the last year range from 10GB/s to 77GB/s. With a max memory bandwidth supported processor of only 21 gigabytes per second, the Precision T1700's max memory bandwidth supported processor is one of the slowest amongst newly released medium processor core personal computers.

Chart Edit

Very Small Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory

The average discrete graphics adapter memory of comparable spec PCs that have been available for the last year is 260GB. At only 1 gigabyte, the Precision T1700 has a quite small discrete graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other computers that were released around the same time as the Precision T1700.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Memory Clock Speed Supported by Processor

Medium processor core personal computers that were launched in the last year have memory clock speeds supported by processors of between 800MHz and 2,200MHz, and the average memory clock speed supported by processor is 1,800MHz. When compared to other newly released medium processor core personal computers, the Precision T1700's memory clock speed supported by processor of only 1,066 megahertz is one of the slowest.

Chart Edit

Only 192 CUDA Cores

Most new medium processor core personal computers have between 48 and 1,663 CUDA cores, including the DELL Precision T1700 which has 192 CUDA cores.

Chart Edit

Very Small Max Internal Memory Supported Processor

The DELL Precision T1700 has a fairly small max internal memory supported processor (only 32 gigabytes) compared to most of the other personal computers that came out around the same time as the Precision T1700. PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the Precision T1700 have max internal memory supported processors of between 2GB and 1.6TB, and the average max internal memory supported processor is 100GB.

Chart Edit

Very Small Total Storage Capacity

The Precision T1700 has one of the smaller total storage capacity (only 256 gigabytes) amongst desktop computers of this age. The total storage capacity of latest medium processor core personal computers range from 32GB to 3.3TB.

If you would prefer a bigger total storage capacity then you might want to consider the 400 G3 SFF (£523.20) (500GB), or the 400 G2 (£499.97) (500GB) both from HP.

Only One PCI Express X1 Slot

Most latest comparable spec PCs have between one and two PCI Express x1 slots, including the Precision T1700 which has one PCI Express x1 slot.

Chart Edit

Only DDR3-SDRAM Internal Memory Type

The Precision T1700 has a DDR3-SDRAM internal memory type which is newer than most PCs that have been available for around the same time as it. Most medium processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to it have a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type.

This PC's internal memory type (DDR3-SDRAM) is actually the worst internal memory type amongst all new personal computers.

The best internal memory type across similar types of PC is DDR4-SDRAM.

The DELL Precision T1700 is a one PCI Express x16 (Gen 3.x) slot computer.

Chart Edit

Only Four Processor Threads

The DELL Precision T1700 is a four processor thread personal computer.

Chart Edit

Very Slow Memory Clock Speed

Comparable spec PCs that were launched in the last 12 months have memory clock speeds of between 1,600MHz and 2,400MHz. With a memory clock speed of only 1,600 megahertz, the Precision T1700 has a fairly slow memory clock speed compared to most of the other newly released computers.

Chart Edit

Very Low System Bus Data Transfer Rate

With a system bus data transfer rate of only 5 Gigatransfers per second, the DELL Precision T1700 has one of the lower system bus data transfer rates amongst PCs of this age. Medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for the last year have system bus data transfer rates of between 5GT/s and 8GT/s, and the average system bus data transfer rate is 7.4GT/s.

2 Other reasons to consider the DELL Precision T1700

Released Nine Months Ago

This computer was released nine months ago.

Average Processor Clock Speed

The Precision T1700 has a relatively standard processor clock speed (3.1 gigahertz) compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been around for a comparable time to the Precision T1700.

If you are looking for a PC with a faster processor clock speed then you might want to consider the 400 G3 (£417.97) (3.2GHz), or the 280 G2 (£390.99) (3.2GHz) both from HP.
