Chart Edit

Four SATA Connectorss

Most of the other PCs that came out more than two years ago only have between two and three SATA connectorss, however the Zotac MI520 has four SATA connectorss.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory

Few processor core computers that were launched more than two years ago have maximum on-board graphics adapter memories of between 1GB and 16GB, and the average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory is 1.6GB. When compared to other few processor core computers that are a similar age to the MI520, the maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of the Zotac MI520 of 2 gigabytes is one of the biggest.

Chart Edit

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

The Zotac MI520 is a four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port personal computer. Most of the other desktop computers of a comparable spec and age to the MI520 have between one and five USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.

Chart Edit

Has One Cable Included

The number of included cables found on the Zotac MI520 is more than most PCs of this age and type. This computer has an AC cable included, which is the most commonly found cable included found on comparable spec personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the MI520.

Chart Edit

Has One Memory Slot

The Zotac MI520 has a greater number of memory slots than most computers of this age and type. The most commonly found memory slot is 2x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this computer. The memory slots 2x SO-DIMM are also found on this personal computer.

Chart Edit

5 Reasons Against

Quite Small Max Internal Memory Supported Processor

When compared to other comparable spec PCs that have been around for around the same time as the MI520, the Zotac MI520's max internal memory supported processor of only 16 gigabytes is one of the smallest. The average max internal memory supported processor of computers of a similar age and spec to the MI520 is 29GB.

Chart Edit

Very Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency

With an on-board graphics adapter base frequency of only 200 megahertz, the Zotac MI520 has a fairly slow on-board graphics adapter base frequency compared to most of the other few processor core computers that were released around the same time as the MI520. Personal computers of this age and type have on-board graphics adapter base frequencies of between 200MHz and 800MHz.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency

The Zotac MI520 has a quite slow on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency (only 1,000 megahertz) compared to most of the other personal computers of a comparable age and spec to the MI520. The average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of few processor core computers that were released more than two years ago is 1,100MHz, and the on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies range from 750MHz to 1,200MHz.

Chart Edit

Very Slow Processor Clock Speed

At only 1.7 gigahertz, the Zotac MI520 has a fairly slow processor clock speed compared to most of the other PCs of this age and type. Across all the few processor core computers that were launched around the same time as the MI520 the processor clock speeds range from 1GHz to 3.9GHz.

If this few processor core PC processor clock speed is too slow for you then you might also want to consider the Zoostorm Intel Celeron 1037U[plb_2784636_price] (1.8GHz and higher rated).
