This computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on PCs that came out more than two years ago.
Quite Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
With an on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of 1,200 megahertz, the Lenovo X310 has a quite fast on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other desktop computers of this age and spec. The on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies of PCs of a similar type and age to the X310 range from 850MHz to 1,300MHz.
11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This computer supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is the most frequently supported on-board graphics adapter DirectX version on medium processor core computers that are a similar age to it.
We checked 406 expert and owner reviews for Lenovo computers and found that on average Lenovo has good reviews compared to other brands. We also found that Lenovo has good reviews specifically within its medium processor core computers range.
Quite Fast Processor Clock Speed
The Lenovo X310 has one of the faster processor clock speeds (3.6 gigahertz) amongst PCs of this age. The slowest processor clock speed of PCs of a similar spec and age to the X310 is 1GHz, the fastest is 4.1GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 3.1GHz.
If this computer processor clock speed is too slow for you then you might also want to look at the Apple Mac Pro (3.7GHz).
Quite Big Total Storage Capacity
The Lenovo X310 has a quite big total storage capacity (1,000 gigabyte) compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that were launched more than two years ago. PCs that were launched around the same time as the X310 have total storage capacity of between 32GB and 2.3TB.
We compared all the other 1TB total storage capacity desktop computers to this PC and we think the Acer Aspire XC-605 which has better reviews is also worth considering.
+9 More reasons for
Quite Big Internal Memory
The internal memory of PCs that have been on the market for more than two years range from 2GB to 64GB, and the average internal memory is 8GB. The Lenovo X310 has a fairly big internal memory (8 gigabytes) compared to most of the other personal computers that came out around the same time as the X310.
With a maximum turbo frequency of 4 gigahertz, the Lenovo X310 has one of the faster maximum turbo frequencies amongst medium processor core computers of this age. The maximum turbo frequencies of comparable spec PCs that have been available for more than two years range from 1.3GHz to 4.4GHz, and the average maximum turbo frequency is 3.6GHz.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many desktop computers of a similar age and type to it.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This PC supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many similar spec PCs that are a comparable age to it.
Eight Processor Threads
The Lenovo X310 is a eight processor thread PC. Most of the other computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the X310 only have between four and seven processor threads.
Fairly Big Hybrid Hard Drive (H-HDD) Capacity
The average hybrid hard drive (H-HDD) capacity of PCs of a comparable age and spec to the X310 is 790GB. The Lenovo X310 has one of the bigger hybrid hard drive (H-HDD) capacities (1,000 gigabyte) amongst comparable spec desktop computers of this age.
Quite Big Processor Cache
At 8 megabytes, the Lenovo X310 has a quite big processor cache compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that were released more than two years ago. The smallest processor cache of similar spec PCs that have been available for around the same time as the X310 is 0.51MB and the biggest is 10MB.
Has One Memory Slot
The Lenovo X310 has a greater number of memory slots than most computers of a comparable age and type to it. This PC has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most commonly found memory slot found on personal computers of this type and age.
4 Reasons Against
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this personal computer is Hybrid-HDD, which is typical of many similar spec PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as 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.
Very Small Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
The smallest maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of medium processor core computers that are a comparable age to the X310 is 1GB and the biggest is 1.8GB. The Lenovo X310 has a fairly small maximum on-board graphics adapter memory (only 1.024 gigabytes) compared to most of the other personal computers that were released more than two years ago.
At 12.5 kilograms, the Lenovo X310 is quite heavy compared to most of the other personal computers of this age and spec. Medium processor core computers that were launched around the same time as the X310 have weights of between 250g and 24kg, and the average weight is 8kg.
When compared to other PCs of this type and age that we have checked the height of, the Lenovo X310's height of 520.7 millimeters is one of the tallest. Across all the personal computers that are a comparable age to the X310 the heights range from 19mm to 560mm.
