Very Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency

When compared to other PCs of a comparable type and age to the P300 Tower that we have checked the on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of, the Lenovo P300 Tower's on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of 1,250 megahertz is one of the fastest. Medium processor core personal computers that were released one year ago have on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies of between 640MHz and 1,300MHz.

Chart Edit

Six USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports

Most comparable spec PCs that have been available for around the same time as the P300 Tower have between one and seven USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports, including the Lenovo P300 Tower which has six USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory

Personal computers of this age and spec have maximum on-board graphics adapter memories of between 1GB and 64GB, and the average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory is 4.3GB. The P300 Tower has one of the bigger maximum on-board graphics adapter memories (1.74 gigabytes) amongst similar spec PCs of this age.

Chart Edit

Good Brand

We calculated the average reviews for all Lenovo desktop computers and also specifically for Lenovo medium processor core personal computers and found that in both cases Lenovo had good reviews.

Fairly Fast Processor Clock Speed

At 3.6 gigahertz, the Lenovo P300 Tower has a fairly fast processor clock speed compared to most of the other similar spec PCs that came out more than a year ago. The average processor clock speed of similar spec computers that were released one year ago is 3.1GHz, and the processor clock speeds range from 1.3GHz to 4GHz.

If this personal computer processor clock speed is too slow for you then you might also want to consider the Apple ME253 (3.7GHz).

SSD Storage Medium

The P300 Tower has an SSD storage medium which is faster than most desktop computers of this spec and age. Most similar spec desktop computers that are a comparable 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.

An SSD storage medium is actually the best storage speed across all medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the P300 Tower.

The worst storage speed across similar types of PC is HDD.
