This PC supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on PCs of a similar age and type to it.
Fairly Big Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
Computers of this type and age have maximum on-board graphics adapter memories of between 1GB and 64GB. The Fujitsu Esprimo P420 has a fairly big maximum on-board graphics adapter memory (1.74 gigabytes) compared to most of the other desktop computers of this age and spec.
SSD Storage Medium
The Esprimo P420 has an SSD storage medium which is faster than most desktop computers of a similar type and age to it. Most medium processor core computers that came out 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.
An SSD storage medium is actually the best storage speed across all medium processor core computers that were released more than a year ago.
The worst storage speed across comparable types of computer is HDD.
Desktop computers with a faster storage speed that might be worth considering include the Zotac ZBOX PI320 (Flash and higher rated), or the Asus CHROMEBIT (£99.97) (Flash and higher rated).
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is typical of many personal computers that have been around for a similar time to it.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This desktop computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many similar spec personal computers that came out more than a year ago.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This desktop computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most frequently supported PCI Express slots version on comparable spec desktop computers that have been available for a similar time to it.
+4 More reasons for
Two 5.25" Bays
The Esprimo P420 is a two 5.25" bay desktop computer. Most of the other personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Esprimo P420 have between one and two 5.25" bays.
Three 3.5" Bays
Most PCs that have been around for a similar time to the Esprimo P420 have between one and seven 3.5" bays, including the Esprimo P420 which has three 3.5" bays.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this desktop computer is DVD Super Multi, which is typical of many computers of a comparable type and age to it.
7 Reasons Against
Only Two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
The Fujitsu Esprimo P420 is a two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port PC. Most of the other similar spec PCs that came out around the same time as the Esprimo P420 have between one and eight USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.
Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
The on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies of medium processor core computers that came out around the same time as the Esprimo P420 range from 700MHz to 1,300MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency is 1,100MHz. The Fujitsu Esprimo P420 has a fairly slow on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency (only 1,100 megahertz) compared to most of the other personal computers that were released one year ago.
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
At only 256 gigabytes, the Esprimo P420 has a fairly small total storage capacity compared to most of the other similar spec PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the Esprimo P420. Across all the medium processor core computers that were released one year ago the total storage capacity range from 4GB to 3.6TB.
If this Fujitsu PC total storage capacity is too small for you then you might want to look at the Acer Veriton X6630G (500GB) which is also higher rated.
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 PCs that have been on the market for more than a year.
+4 More reasons against
Only Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the Esprimo P420 is more than most desktop computers of a comparable spec and age to it. The most commonly found memory slot is 4x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this personal computer. The memory slots 2x DIMM are also found on this computer.
Only Two USB 3.0 Ports
Most PCs that were released around the same time as the Esprimo P420 have between one and eight USB 3.0 ports, including the Esprimo P420 which has two USB 3.0 ports.
Quite Slow Maximum Turbo Frequency
Across all the medium processor core computers that are a comparable age to the Esprimo P420 the maximum turbo frequencies range from 1.8GHz to 4.4GHz, and the average maximum turbo frequency is 3.6GHz. With a maximum turbo frequency of only 3.3 gigahertz, the Esprimo P420 has one of the slower maximum turbo frequencies amongst personal computers of this age.
3 Other reasons to consider the Fujitsu Esprimo P420
Released Over Two Years Ago
It was over two years ago when Fujitsu released the Esprimo P420.
Average Processor Clock Speed
The Esprimo P420 has a fairly typical processor clock speed (3.1 gigahertz) compared to most of the other PCs of this age and type.
If this Fujitsu desktop computer processor clock speed is not fast enough for you then you might want to consider the Veriton X2632G (£423.24) (3.2GHz), or the Veriton M4630G (3.2GHz) both from Acer or the HP ProDesk 600 G2 SFF (£799.63) (3.2GHz).
Average Internal Memory
At 8 gigabytes, the Esprimo P420 has a relatively typical internal memory compared to most of the other computers of this age and spec.
PCs with a bigger internal memory that might also be worth considering include the HP 810-477na (£939.99) (12GB).
