This desktop computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most frequently supported PCI Express slots version on new desktop computers.
+8 More reasons for
L3 Processor Cache Level
This PC has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most frequently found processor cache level on medium processor core computers that came out in the last year.
Six USB 2.0 Ports
Most new medium processor core computers have between one and nine USB 2.0 ports, including the Precision T1700 which has six USB 2.0 ports.
The Precision T1700 is a two DisplayPort PC. Most of the other new similar spec desktop computers have between one and three DisplayPorts.
Two 5.25" Bays
The DELL Precision T1700 is a two 5.25" bay personal computer. Most of the other latest desktop computers have between one and three 5.25" bays.
Has One Memory Slot
The Precision T1700 has a greater number of memory slots than most personal computers that are a similar age to it. This desktop computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most commonly found memory slot found on medium processor core computers that were launched around the same time as the Precision T1700.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this personal computer is DVD Super Multi, which is typical of many comparable spec personal computers that have been available for a similar time to it.
GDDR Discrete Graphics Memory Type
This desktop computer supports a GDDR5 discrete graphics memory type, which is the most commonly supported discrete graphics memory type on comparable spec personal computers that came out in the last 12 months.
5 Reasons Against
Very Small Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory
The average discrete graphics adapter memory of similar spec personal computers that have been around for a comparable time to the Precision T1700 is 320GB, and the discrete graphics adapter memory capacities range from 0.5GB to 8.2TB. With a discrete graphics adapter memory of only 2 gigabytes, the DELL Precision T1700 has one of the smaller discrete graphics adapter memory capacities amongst comparable spec PCs of this age.
Quite Slow Max Memory Bandwidth Supported Processor
With a max memory bandwidth supported processor of only 25.6 gigabytes per second, the Precision T1700 has one of the slower max memory bandwidth supported processor amongst medium processor core computers of this age. Across all the medium processor core computers that were launched in the last year the max memory bandwidth supported processor range from 10GB/s to 77GB/s, and the average max memory bandwidth supported processor is 33GB/s.
Very Small Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory
The discrete graphics adapter memory of comparable spec desktop computers that have been available for a similar time to the Precision T1700 range from 510MB to 8.2GB. With a discrete graphics adapter memory of only 1,024 megabyte, the Precision T1700 has a quite small discrete graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other new computers.
Only 10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Rate
This desktop computer supports a 10|100|1000 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN data rate, which is typical of many new medium processor core computers.
+2 More reasons against
Quite Slow Memory Clock Speed
The Precision T1700 has a quite slow memory clock speed (only 1,600 megahertz) compared to most of the other similar spec PCs that were launched around the same time as the Precision T1700. The memory clock speeds of medium processor core computers that have been around for around the same time as the Precision T1700 range from 1,000MHz to 2,400MHz.
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
With a processor clock speed of 3.1 gigahertz, the DELL Precision T1700 has a relatively typical processor clock speed compared to most of the other latest similar spec computers.
If this personal computer processor clock speed is not fast enough for you then you might also want to look at the HP 280 G2[plb_3726319_price] (3.2GHz and cheaper), or the Acer Veriton M2610[plb_3430067_price] (3.2GHz and cheaper).
Average Internal Memory
With an internal memory of 8 gigabytes, the Precision T1700 has a pretty typical internal memory compared to most of the other similar spec desktop computers that came out in the last year.
+4 Other reasons
Average Total Storage Capacity
With a total storage capacity of 500 gigabytes, the Precision T1700 has a fairly average total storage capacity compared to most of the other PCs that have been on the market for a comparable time to the Precision T1700.
Alternative 500GB total storage capacity computers currently available that you might also want to consider include cheaper computers such as the OptiPlex 3020[pl_2457302_price], or the Optiplex 3020[pl_2111412_price] both from DELL.
If you are looking for a personal computer with a bigger total storage capacity then you might want to look at the Acer Veriton X2640G[plb_3623416_price] (1TB and cheaper).
Average Hard Drive Capacity
With a hard drive capacity of 500 gigabytes, the Precision T1700 has a fairly standard hard drive capacity compared to most of the other new similar spec PCs.
We think you might also be interested in some of the other 500GB hard drive capacity personal computers currently available including the OptiPlex 3020[pl_2457302_price], or the Optiplex 3020[pl_2111412_price] both from DELL which is cheaper.
PCs with a bigger hard drive capacity that might also be worth considering include the Acer Veriton X2640G[plb_3623416_price] (1TB) which is also cheaper.
HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this computer is HDD, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that have been available for the last year. 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.
We compared all the other HDD PCs to this computer and we think cheaper desktop computers such as the Veriton M2610[pl_3430067_price], and the Veriton X2640G[pl_3623416_price] both from Acer is also worth considering.
If the storage speed of this PC is not fast enough for you then you might also want to consider the 400 G3[pl_3784834_price] (SSD and cheaper), or the 600 G2[pl_3791237_price] (SSD and cheaper) both from HP.
