Fairly Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency

Across all the desktop computers that have been around for a comparable time to the 280 G1 Microtower PC the on-board graphics adapter base frequencies range from 100MHz to 690MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter base frequency is 300MHz. At 350 megahertz, the 280 G1 Microtower PC has a fairly fast on-board graphics adapter base frequency compared to most of the other few processor core computers that were launched around the same time as the 280 G1 Microtower PC.

Chart Edit

Quite Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency

With an on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of 1,150 megahertz, the HP 280 G1 Microtower PC has one of the faster on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies amongst few processor core computers of this age. The on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies of few processor core computers that have been around for around the same time as the 280 G1 Microtower PC range from 750MHz to 1,200MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency is 1,100MHz.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Max Internal Memory Supported Processor

With a max internal memory supported processor of 32 gigabytes, the 280 G1 Microtower PC has a fairly big max internal memory supported processor compared to most of the other few processor core computers that have been on the market for more than a year. The max internal memory supported processors of few processor core computers that were released around the same time as the 280 G1 Microtower PC range from 4GB to 64GB, and the average max internal memory supported processor is 27GB.

Chart Edit

3 PCI Express Slots Version

This personal computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many few processor core computers that have been around for a comparable time to it.

Chart Edit

Six USB 2.0 Ports

Most personal computers of this age and spec have between one and seven USB 2.0 ports, including the 280 G1 Microtower PC which has six USB 2.0 ports.

Chart Edit
