Reasons For

8 Reasons For
1.6GHz faster processor clock speed Edit
The DELL XPS 8700 has a processor clock speed of 3.6GHzGHz, however the Lenovo M83 Tiny is only a 2GHzGHz processor clock speed PC (1.6GHz slower). Read more

The speed that the microprocessor executes each instruction or each vibration of the clock. The CPU requires a fixed number of clock ticks, or cycles, to execute each instruction. The faster the clocks rate, the faster the CPU, or the faster it can execute instructions. Clock Speeds are usually determined in MHz, 1 MHz representing 1 million cycles per second, or in GHz, 1 GHz representing 1 thousand million cycles per second. The higher the CPU speed, the better a computer will perform.

A higher processor clock speed means that the computer can complete more calculations every second which means that applications will run faster.

Eight processor threads Edit
The number of processor threads on the DELL XPS 8700 is eight, but the Lenovo M83 Tiny only has four processor threads.
25% bigger processor cache Edit
The DELL XPS 8700 is an 8MBMB processor cache PC. That's 2MB bigger than the Lenovo M83 Tiny (6MBMB).
25% faster maximum turbo frequency Edit
The DELL XPS 8700 has a maximum turbo frequency of 4GHzGHz, however the Lenovo M83 Tiny is only a 3GHzGHz maximum turbo frequency PC (1GHz slower). Read more

The turbo boost is an automatic, managed accelleration of the processor when one of the cores is overloaded.

Bigger internal memory Edit
DELL XPS 8700 is 8GBGB memory, but the Lenovo M83 Tiny is only a 6GBGB memory PC (2GB smaller). Read more

A computer's memory which is directly accessible to the CPU.

A higher internal memory will allow the computer to run more quickly.
