64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This desktop computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many few processor core computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to it.

Chart Edit

Fairly Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency

At 350 megahertz, the MSI DC111 has a quite fast on-board graphics adapter base frequency compared to most of the other computers of a similar type and age to the DC111. The slowest on-board graphics adapter base frequency of PCs of a similar spec and age to the DC111 is 200MHz and the fastest is 800MHz.

Chart Edit

L3 Processor Cache Level

This desktop computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many few processor core computers that have been on the market for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Narrow

The MSI DC111 is one of the narrower PCs of this type and age (only 150.93 millimeters) amongst few processor core computers of this age. Few processor core computers that were released more than two years ago have widths of between 3.4mm and 390mm, and the average width is 180mm.

Chart Edit

Light

The lightest desktop computer of a comparable age and spec to the DC111 is 600g heavy, the heaviest is 16kg, and the average weight is 5.4kg. With a weight of only 900 grams, the MSI DC111 is fairly light compared to most of the other few processor core computers that have been around for around the same time as the DC111.

Chart Edit

Shallow

Across all the comparable spec PCs that have been around for around the same time as the DC111 the depths range from 27mm to 460mm, and the average depth is 290mm. With a depth of only 34.94 millimeters, the MSI DC111 is very shallow compared to most of the other few processor core computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the DC111.

Chart Edit

10 Reasons Against

Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency

The MSI DC111 has one of the slower on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies (only 1,000 megahertz) amongst similar spec desktop computers of this age. The average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of personal computers of a similar type and age to the DC111 is 1,100MHz, and the on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies range from 750MHz to 1,200MHz.

Chart Edit

Very Slow Processor Clock Speed

The slowest processor clock speed of desktop computers that have been around for a comparable time to the DC111 is 1GHz and the fastest is 3.9GHz. The MSI DC111 has a quite slow processor clock speed (only 1.8 gigahertz) compared to most of the other few processor core computers that were launched around the same time as the DC111.

Chart Edit

Only HDD Storage Medium

The storage speed of this personal computer is HDD, which is the most frequently found storage medium on computers of a comparable age and spec 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 MSI PC is too slow for you then you might want to consider the Shuttle DSA2LS[plb_2420911_price] (Flash).
