64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This desktop computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on personal computers of this age and type.
Fairly Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
At 1,200 megahertz, the HP ProDesk 490 G2 has a quite fast on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other computers that were launched more than a year ago. The on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies of desktop computers that have been around for around the same time as the ProDesk 490 G2 range from 700MHz to 1,300MHz.
Fairly Fast Processor Clock Speed
At 3.6 gigahertz, the ProDesk 490 G2 has a quite fast processor clock speed compared to most of the other similar spec personal computers that came out more than a year ago. The processor clock speeds of medium processor core computers that are a similar age to the ProDesk 490 G2 range from 1.3GHz to 4GHz.
Quite Big Total Storage Capacity
The total storage capacity of PCs of this type and age range from 4GB to 3.6TB. The ProDesk 490 G2 has a fairly big total storage capacity (1,000 gigabyte) compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that have been available for around the same time as the ProDesk 490 G2.
If you are looking for a bigger total storage capacity then you might want to look at the Asus G20AJ (£772.13) (1TB).
Two PCI Express X16 Slots
Most of the other computers of this type and age only have one PCI Express x16 slot, however the ProDesk 490 G2 has two PCI Express x16 slots.
+10 More reasons for
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This desktop computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is the most commonly found cabling technology on PCs of a similar type and age to it.
Quite Fast Maximum Turbo Frequency
The slowest maximum turbo frequency of medium processor core computers that have been around for around the same time as the ProDesk 490 G2 is 1.8GHz and the fastest is 4.4GHz. The ProDesk 490 G2 has a fairly fast maximum turbo frequency (4 gigahertz) compared to most of the other computers that were launched around the same time as the ProDesk 490 G2.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most frequently found processor cache level on personal computers that have been available for more than a year.
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 medium processor core computers that have been on the market for more than a year.
Eight Processor Threads
The ProDesk 490 G2 has more processor threads than most of the PCs of this age and spec. Most of the similar spec personal computers that are a comparable age to the ProDesk 490 G2 only have between four and seven processor threads, however this computer has eight processor threads.
Fairly Big Processor Cache
Personal computers of this type and age have processor caches of between 2MB and 10MB. The HP ProDesk 490 G2 has one of the bigger processor caches (8 megabytes) amongst desktop computers of this age.
Has One Memory Slot
The ProDesk 490 G2 has a greater number of memory slots than most comparable spec PCs that have been on the market for a similar time to it. This desktop computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most commonly found memory slot found on computers of this age and spec.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this PC is DVD Super Multi, which is the most commonly found optical drive type on PCs of a similar spec and age to it.
GDDR Discrete Graphics Memory Type
This desktop computer supports a GDDR3 discrete graphics memory type, which is the most commonly supported discrete graphics memory type on personal computers of this age and type.
3 Reasons Against
Very Small Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory
Across all the medium processor core computers that have been available for a similar time to the ProDesk 490 G2 the discrete graphics adapter memory capacities range from 1GB to 8.2TB. At only 2 gigabytes, the ProDesk 490 G2 has a quite small discrete graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that were released one year ago.
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this desktop computer is HDD, which is typical of many desktop computers of a similar type and age to it. 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.
If the storage speed of this medium processor core computer is not fast enough for you then you might also want to look at the Fujitsu W530 (£749.99) (SSD).
Only 11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This PC supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is the most commonly supported on-board graphics adapter DirectX version on personal computers of this age and type.
3 Other reasons to consider the HP ProDesk 490 G2
Released Over a Year Ago
It was over a year ago when this personal computer was released.
Average Hard Drive Capacity
At 1,000 gigabyte, the ProDesk 490 G2 has a pretty typical hard drive capacity compared to most of the other PCs of this age and type.
If this HP desktop computer hard drive capacity is too small for you then you might want to look at the Lenovo H50 (£379.97) (2TB).
