This desktop computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on personal computers that were launched around the same time as it.
SSD Storage Medium
The Esprimo Q520 has a faster storage speed than most personal computers that have been available for more than a year. This PC has an SSD storage medium, whereas most PCs that are a similar age to 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 desktop computer's storage speed (SSD) is in fact the best storage speed across all similar spec computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Esprimo Q520.
The worst storage speed amongst similar types of desktop computer is HDD.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many similar spec PCs that have been around for around the same time as it.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This PC has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most commonly found processor cache level on personal computers of this spec and age.
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This PC has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is typical of many PCs of this spec and age.
Gold EPEAT Compliance
This personal computer has a Gold EPEAT compliance, which is the most commonly found EPEAT compliance on desktop computers of a similar type and age to it.
+6 More reasons for
Supports Two Compatible Memory Cards
The number of compatible memory card supported by the Fujitsu Esprimo Q520 is more than most personal computers of a similar spec and age to it. This personal computer supports an SD compatible memory card, which is the most commonly supported compatible memory card supported by comparable spec personal computers that have been around for more than a year. The compatible memory card "MMC" is also supported by this desktop computer.
Four Processor Threads
The Fujitsu Esprimo Q520 has more processor threads than most of the comparable spec personal computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the Esprimo Q520. This Fujitsu personal computer is a four processor thread computer compared to most of the few processor core computers that have been available for around the same time as the Esprimo Q520 which only have between two and three processor threads.
5.1 Audio Output Channel
This personal computer has a 5.1 audio output channel, which is typical of many computers that came out more than a year ago.
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 this spec and age.
Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the Esprimo Q520 is more than most computers of this type and age. The most commonly found memory slot is 2x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this computer. The memory slots 2x SO-DIMM are also found on this Fujitsu computer.
2 Reasons Against
Very Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency
The slowest on-board graphics adapter base frequency of personal computers of a comparable age and type to the Esprimo Q520 is 100MHz and the fastest is 690MHz. With an on-board graphics adapter base frequency of only 200 megahertz, the Esprimo Q520 has one of the slower on-board graphics adapter base frequencies amongst few processor core computers of this age.
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
With a total storage capacity of only 128 gigabytes, the Esprimo Q520 has one of the smaller total storage capacity amongst few processor core computers of this age. Across all the few processor core computers that are a comparable age to the Esprimo Q520 the total storage capacity range from 8GB to 3TB.
3 Other reasons to consider the Fujitsu Esprimo Q520
Released Over Two Years Ago
This desktop computer has been on the market for over two years.
Average Processor Clock Speed
The Fujitsu Esprimo Q520 has a pretty typical processor clock speed (3.1 gigahertz) compared to most of the other few processor core computers that have been available for more than a year.
PCs with a faster processor clock speed that might be worth looking at include the HP ProDesk 600 G1 (£264.12) (3.2GHz).
Average Internal Memory
At 4 gigabytes, the Fujitsu Esprimo Q520 has a pretty average internal memory compared to most of the other personal computers that were released more than a year ago.
If this desktop computer internal memory is too small for you then you might also want to look at the Asus M32AD (£456.45) (6GB).
