11 Reasons For

64-Bit Processor Operating Modes

This PC supports a 64-bit processor operating modes, which is typical of many recently released medium processor cores computers.

Chart Edit

Fairly Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency (max)

The S500 SFF has a quite fast on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency (max) (1,200 megahertz) compared to most of the other similar spec desktop computers that have been around for a comparable time to the S500 SFF. Across all the new desktop computers the on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency (max)s range from 600MHz to 1,400MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency (max) is 1,100MHz.

Chart Edit

SSD Storage Media

The S500 SFF has an SSD storage media which is faster than the HDD storage media found on most PCs that came out around the same time as 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.

An SSD storage media is actually the best storage speed amongst all latest computers.

An HDD storage media is the worst storage speed amongst similar types of PC.
