DELL is one of the superior desktop computer manufacturers according to average user and expert reviews, and DELL also has good ratings for its medium processor core computers.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that were launched around the same time as it.
Fairly Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
Across all the medium processor core computers that were released more than two years ago the on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies range from 850MHz to 1,300MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency is 1,200MHz. With an on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of 1,200 megahertz, the DELL Precision T1700 has a quite fast on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that were launched around the same time as the Precision T1700.
Quite Fast Memory Clock Speed Supported by Processor
The average memory clock speed supported by processor of medium processor core computers that have been on the market for more than two years is 1,300MHz, and the memory clock speeds supported by processors range from 800MHz to 2,200MHz. When compared to other medium processor core computers that were released more than two years ago that we have checked, the memory clock speed supported by processor of the Precision T1700 of 1,600 megahertz is one of the fastest.
SSD Storage Medium
The Precision T1700 has an SSD storage medium which is faster than most medium processor core computers that have been on the market for more than two years. Most computers that were released around the same time as it 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 computer's storage speed (SSD) is in fact the best storage speed across all computers of this age and type.
The worst storage speed amongst comparable types of computer is HDD.
We compared this PC to all the other SSD PCs and we think because of it's better review score, the Zotac ZBOX CA320 nano is also worth considering.
If the storage speed of this desktop computer is too slow for you then you might want to consider the Apple Mac Pro (£2,289.06) (Flash).
Quite Big Internal Memory
The Precision T1700 has one of the bigger internal memory (8 gigabytes) amongst medium processor core computers of this age. Across all the similar spec desktop computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the Precision T1700 the internal memory range from 2GB to 64GB, and the average internal memory is 8GB.
The Precision T1700 has a greater number of included cables than most desktop computers of a similar age and type to it. This personal computer has an AC cable included, which is the most commonly found cable included found on medium processor core computers that have been around for more than two years.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This PC supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many PCs of this age and spec.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This personal computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most frequently found processor cache level on medium processor core computers that have been on the market for more than two years.
Six USB 2.0 Ports
The Precision T1700 is a six USB 2.0 port computer. Most of the other computers of a similar type and age to the Precision T1700 have between two and nine USB 2.0 ports.
Two 5.25" Bays
Most personal computers that have been around for a similar time to the Precision T1700 have between one and two 5.25" bays, including the Precision T1700 which has two 5.25" bays.
Eight Processor Threads
The Precision T1700 has more processor threads than most of the medium processor core computers that were launched more than two years ago. This desktop computer is a eight processor thread personal computer compared to most of the medium processor core computers that were launched around the same time as the Precision T1700 which only have between four and seven processor threads.
Fairly Big Solid-State Drive Capacity
The average solid-state drive capacity of personal computers of a similar age and spec to the Precision T1700 is 190GB, and the solid-state drive capacities range from 16GB to 520GB. At 256 gigabytes, the DELL Precision T1700 has a quite big solid-state drive capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Precision T1700.
Fairly Big Processor Cache
The processor caches of medium processor core computers that are a comparable age to the Precision T1700 range from 0.51MB to 10MB. The Precision T1700 has a quite big processor cache (8 megabytes) compared to most of the other comparable spec desktop computers that are a similar age to the Precision T1700.
Fairly Big Maximum Internal Memory
At 32 gigabytes, the Precision T1700 has a quite big maximum internal memory compared to most of the other computers that came out around the same time as the Precision T1700. The smallest maximum internal memory of computers of a comparable type and age to the Precision T1700 is 2GB and the biggest is 260GB.
Has One Memory Slot
The DELL Precision T1700 has a greater number of memory slots than most computers of this age and type. This computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most commonly found memory slot found on medium processor core computers that were released more than two years ago.
2 Reasons Against
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
The total storage capacity of desktop computers of this age and spec range from 32GB to 2.3TB, and the average total storage capacity is 720GB. The Precision T1700 has a quite small total storage capacity (only 256 gigabytes) compared to most of the other PCs of this age and spec.
Only One PCI Express X1 Slot
The Precision T1700 is a one PCI Express x1 slot PC. Most of the other medium processor core computers that have been available for around the same time as the Precision T1700 have between one and two PCI Express x1 slots.
2 Other reasons to consider the DELL Precision T1700
Released Over Two Years Ago
This computer was released over two years ago.
Average Processor Clock Speed
With a processor clock speed of 3.4 gigahertz, the Precision T1700 has a fairly average processor clock speed compared to most of the other personal computers that came out more than two years ago.
Desktop computers with a faster processor clock speed that might also be worth considering include the Fujitsu Celsius W530 (3.5GHz), or the HP Z230 (3.5GHz).
