4.4 On-Board Graphics Adapter OpenGL Version

This personal computer supports a 4.4 on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version, which is the most commonly supported on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version on latest few processor core computers.

Chart Edit

Very Big Max Internal Memory Supported Processor

At 64 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 3040m has a quite big max internal memory supported processor compared to most of the other latest few processor core computers. The average max internal memory supported processor of recently released similar spec desktop computers is 42GB, and the max internal memory supported processors range from 8GB to 64GB.

Chart Edit

Fairly Fast Max Memory Bandwidth Supported Processor

The slowest max memory bandwidth supported processor of few processor core computers that have been available for around the same time as the OptiPlex 3040m is 21GB/s and the fastest is 35GB/s. The DELL OptiPlex 3040m has one of the faster max memory bandwidth supported processor (34.1 gigabytes per second) amongst desktop computers of this age.

Chart Edit

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

The OptiPlex 3040m is a four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port personal computer.

Chart Edit

HDD Storage Medium

The storage speed of this personal computer is HDD, which is the most frequently found storage medium on few processor core computers that are a similar age 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 DELL desktop computer is not fast enough for you then you might also want to consider the Chromebox 3010 (SSD), or the OptiPlex 3040 (SSD) both from DELL or the HP 400 G2 (SSD).
