Very Fast Memory Clock Speeds Supported by Processor

The memory clock speeds supported by processors of desktop computers of a comparable age and spec to the P900 range from 800MHz to 1,600MHz, and the average memory clock speeds supported by processor is 1,400MHz. When compared to other desktop computers that were launched around the same time as the P900, the Lenovo P900's memory clock speeds supported by processor of 1,600 megahertz is one of the fastest.

Chart Edit

SSD Storage Media

The storage speed of this personal computer is SSD, which is the most commonly found storage media on many processor cores desktop computers that are a similar age to it. 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.
