Chart Edit

Quite Slow Processor Clock Speed

The slowest processor clock speed of many processor core personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the D30 is 1.6GHz and the fastest is 3.7GHz. With a processor clock speed of only 2.1 gigahertz, the Lenovo D30 has one of the slower processor clock speeds amongst desktop computers of this age.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory

The smallest discrete graphics adapter memory of computers of a similar spec and age to the D30 is 3GB, the biggest is 8.2TB, and the average discrete graphics adapter memory is 3.8TB. The Lenovo D30 has a quite small discrete graphics adapter memory (only 2,048 gigabytes) compared to most of the other many processor core personal computers that have been available for a similar time to the D30.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Max Memory Bandwidth Supported Processor

With a max memory bandwidth supported processor of only 51.2 gigabytes per second, the Lenovo D30 has a fairly slow max memory bandwidth supported processor compared to most of the other PCs of this age and spec. The slowest max memory bandwidth supported processor of comparable spec desktop computers that were released more than two years ago is 32GB/s and the fastest is 68GB/s.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Memory Clock Speed

The average memory clock speed of desktop computers that are a similar age to the D30 is 1,900MHz, and the memory clock speeds range from 1,300MHz to 2,200MHz. The Lenovo D30 has a very slow memory clock speed (only 1,333 megahertz) compared to most of the other PCs that have been available for a similar time to the D30.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Maximum Turbo Frequency

With a maximum turbo frequency of only 2.6 gigahertz, the Lenovo D30's maximum turbo frequency is one of the slowest amongst PCs of a comparable age and spec to the D30. Many processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to the D30 have maximum turbo frequencies of between 2.5GHz and 4GHz, and the average maximum turbo frequency is 3.5GHz.
