Fairly Fast Memory Clock Speeds Supported by Processor
The memory clock speeds supported by processors of medium processor cores computers that have been around for the last year range from 800MHz to 2,200MHz, and the average memory clock speeds supported by processor is 1,700MHz. At 2,133 megahertz, the DELL 7040 has a fairly fast memory clock speeds supported by processor compared to most of the other latest medium processor cores computers.
64-Bit Processor Operating Modes
This PC supports a 64-bit processor operating modes, which is typical of many medium processor cores computers that are a comparable age to it.
Six USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports Quantitys
Most recently released PCs have between two and seven USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports quantitys, including the DELL 7040 which has six USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports quantitys.
Medium processor cores computers manufactured by DELL have good reviews on average compared to other brands. We also checked the reviews for all computers (not just medium processor cores computers) and found that DELL also has good reviews across its entire range.
SSD Storage Media
The DELL 7040 has an SSD storage media which is faster than most latest medium processor cores computers. Most newly released medium processor cores 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.
This personal computer's storage speed (SSD) is actually the best storage speed amongst all medium processor cores computers that are a comparable age to the 7040.
The worst storage speed across comparable types of personal computer is HDD.
