The DELL 7040 has a very fast memory clock speeds supported by processor (2,133 megahertz) compared to most of the other medium processor cores personal computers that are a comparable age to the 7040. The slowest memory clock speeds supported by processor of newly released desktop computers is 800MHz and the fastest is 2,200MHz.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Internal Memory

With an internal memory of 8 gigabytes, the DELL 7040 has a fairly big internal memory compared to most of the other recently released medium processor cores personal computers. The smallest internal memory of latest comparable spec computers is 4GB, the biggest is 32GB, and the average internal memory is 8.1GB.

Chart Edit

Quite Fast Memory Clock Speed

Similar spec desktop computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the 7040 have memory clock speeds of between 1,600MHz and 2,400MHz, and the average memory clock speed is 1,900MHz. With a memory clock speed of 2,133 megahertz, the DELL 7040 has one of the faster memory clock speeds amongst medium processor cores personal computers of this age.

Chart Edit

Fairly High System Bus Rate

With a system bus rate of 8 Gigatransfers per second, the DELL 7040 has a fairly high system bus rate compared to most of the other computers that were launched around the same time as the 7040. The average system bus rate of medium processor cores personal computers that are a comparable age to the 7040 is 7.2GT/s, and the system bus rates range from 5GT/s to 8GT/s.

Chart Edit

Light

Computers that have been available for the last year have weights of between 350g and 15kg, and the average weight is 6.6kg.
