This PC supports a 64-bit processor operating modes, which is typical of many medium processor cores computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to it.
Just Released Seven Months Ago
This DELL desktop computer was released just seven months ago, so it is likely to use more advanced technology than some of the older PCs.
DELL Has Good Reviews for Its Desktop Computers
DELL has good average ratings for its medium processor cores computers as well as across its entire personal computer range compared to other manufacturers.
SSD Storage Media
The DELL 7040 has an SSD storage media which is faster than most medium processor cores computers that were launched in the last 12 months. Most latest desktop computers have an HDD storage media. 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 media is actually the best storage speed across all latest PCs.
Across comparable types of personal computer the worst storage speed is HDD.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most commonly supported PCI Express slots version on recently released similar spec personal computers.
DDR4-SDRAM Internal Memory Type
This computer has a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type, which is the most frequently found internal memory type on medium processor cores computers that have been available for around the same time as it.
+3 More reasons for
Quite Big Solid-State Drive Capacity
At 256 gigabytes, the DELL 7040 has a fairly big solid-state drive capacity compared to most of the other medium processor cores computers that are a similar age to the 7040. Across all the new medium processor cores computers the solid-state drive capacitys range from 8GB to 520GB.
With a weight of only 1.3 kilograms, the DELL 7040 is very light compared to most of the other PCs that were launched around the same time as the 7040. The lightest personal computer that has been on the market for the last year is 350g heavy, the heaviest is 15kg, and the average weight is 6.3kg.
10 Reasons Against
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
At only 256 gigabytes, the DELL 7040 has a fairly small total storage capacity compared to most of the other recently released similar spec computers. The total storage capacitys of recently released medium processor cores computers range from 120GB to 3TB, and the average total storage capacity is 740GB.
Quite Slow Processor Frequency
With a processor frequency of only 2.5 gigahertz, the DELL 7040 has a fairly slow processor frequency compared to most of the other medium processor cores computers that were launched around the same time as the 7040. Comparable spec PCs that have been available for a similar time to the 7040 have processor frequencys of between 1.6GHz and 4GHz.
Very Small Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
With a maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of only 1.7 gigabytes, the DELL 7040 has a quite small maximum on-board graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other recently released comparable spec desktop computers. The average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of latest computers is 6.3GB.
Only IEEE 802.11a Wi-Fi Standards
This personal computer supports an IEEE 802.11ac wi-Fi standards, which is the most commonly supported wi-Fi standards on latest medium processor cores computers.
+7 More reasons against
Only One DisplayPorts Quantity
Most personal computers that came out in the last 12 months have between one and three displayPorts quantitys, including the DELL 7040 which has one displayPorts quantity.
Very Small Maximum Internal Memory
With a maximum internal memory of only 16 gigabytes, the DELL 7040 has a fairly small maximum internal memory compared to most of the other desktop computers that came out around the same time as the 7040. The maximum internal memorys of new computers range from 4GB to 260GB, and the average maximum internal memory is 44GB.
Quite Small Processor Cache
The average processor cache of medium processor cores computers that came out in the last year is 6.8MB, and the processor caches range from 2MB to 10MB. With a processor cache of only 6 megabytes, the DELL 7040 has a fairly small processor cache compared to most of the other medium processor cores computers that have been available for a similar time to the 7040.
Only Four Processor Threadss
Most medium processor cores computers that have been available for around the same time as the 7040 have between four and seven processor threadss, including the DELL 7040 which has four processor threadss.
Quite Slow Processor Boost Frequency
The DELL 7040 has one of the slower processor boost frequencys (only 3.1 gigahertz) amongst medium processor cores computers of this age. The slowest processor boost frequency of PCs that were launched in the last 12 months is 2.2GHz and the fastest is 4.2GHz.
Only One Number of 2.5" Bays
The DELL 7040 is a one number of 2.5" bays PC. Most of the other new personal computers have between one and three number of 2.5" bayss.
