This desktop computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most commonly supported PCI Express slots version on personal computers that were released around the same time as it.
+5 More reasons for
Fairly Fast Maximum Turbo Frequency
With a maximum turbo frequency of 4 gigahertz, the DELL 5040 has one of the faster maximum turbo frequencies amongst comparable spec PCs of this age. The maximum turbo frequencies of PCs that were released around the same time as the 5040 range from 1.8GHz to 4.2GHz, and the average maximum turbo frequency is 3.6GHz.
Has One Memory Slot
The DELL 5040 has a greater number of memory slots than most new medium processor core personal computers. This DELL computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most frequently found memory slot found on medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the 5040.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this computer is DVD Super Multi, which is the most commonly found optical drive type on medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for the last year.
With a depth of only 92.6 millimeters, the DELL 5040 is one of the shallower medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the 5040 amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age. The depths of PCs that have been around for a comparable time to the 5040 range from 33mm to 600mm, and the average depth is 320mm.
2 Reasons Against
Very Small Maximum Internal Memory
The average maximum internal memory of latest medium processor core personal computers is 42GB, and the maximum internal memory range from 2GB to 260GB. The DELL 5040 has a quite small maximum internal memory (only 16 gigabytes) compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that came out around the same time as the 5040.
Very Slow Memory Clock Speed
At only 1,600 megahertz, the DELL 5040 has a fairly slow memory clock speed compared to most of the other recently released medium processor core personal computers. The slowest memory clock speed of newly released medium processor core personal computers is 1,600MHz and the fastest is 2,400MHz.
3 Other reasons to consider the DELL 5040
Average Hard Drive Capacity
The DELL 5040 has a pretty average hard drive capacity (1,000 gigabyte) compared to most of the other latest comparable spec desktop computers.
Average Total Storage Capacity
The DELL 5040 has a relatively standard total storage capacity (1,000 gigabyte) compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the 5040.
HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this PC is HDD, which is the most frequently found storage medium on comparable spec desktop computers that were released around the same time as 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.
