Very Fast Memory Clock Speed Supported by Processor

With a memory clock speed supported by processor of 2,133 megahertz, the DELL 7040 has one of the fastest memory clock speeds supported by processors amongst personal computers of this age. The average memory clock speed supported by processor of medium processor core PCs that are a similar age to the 7040 is 1,700MHz.

Chart Edit

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Max Internal Memory Supported Processor

At 64 gigabytes, the DELL 7040 has a fairly big max internal memory supported processor compared to most of the other similar spec PCs that are a comparable age to the 7040. Across all the new desktop computers the max internal memory supported processors range from 2GB to 1.6TB.

Chart Edit

Quite Fast Max Memory Bandwidth Supported Processor

With a max memory bandwidth supported processor of 34.1 gigabytes per second, the DELL 7040 has one of the faster max memory bandwidth supported processor amongst similar spec desktop computers of this age. Medium processor core PCs that were released in the last year have max memory bandwidth supported processor of between 10GB/s and 77GB/s, and the average max memory bandwidth supported processor is 34GB/s.

Chart Edit

DELL Has Good PC Reviews

DELL has good average reviews for its medium processor core PCs as well as across its entire PC range compared to other brands.

Chart

SSD Storage Medium

The DELL 7040 has an SSD storage medium which is faster than the HDD storage medium found on most medium processor core PCs that were released in the last year. 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 medium is in fact the best storage speed amongst all recently released medium processor core PCs.

An HDD storage medium is the worst storage speed amongst similar types of computer.

3 PCI Express Slots Version

This desktop computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many comparable spec desktop computers that have been around for the last year.

Chart Edit

Fairly Fast Memory Clock Speed

The memory clock speeds of desktop computers that came out in the last year range from 1,000MHz to 2,400MHz. With a memory clock speed of 2,133 megahertz, the DELL 7040 has a fairly fast memory clock speed compared to most of the other comparable spec desktop computers that are a similar age to the 7040.

Chart Edit

DDR4-SDRAM Internal Memory Type

This PC has a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type, which is typical of many comparable spec PCs that are a similar age to it.

Chart Edit

Fairly High System Bus Data Transfer Rate

With a system bus data transfer rate of 8 Gigatransfers per second, the DELL 7040 has a quite high system bus data transfer rate compared to most of the other desktop computers that were launched around the same time as the 7040. Newly released medium processor core PCs have system bus data transfer rates of between 5GT/s and 8GT/s.

Chart Edit

Six USB 3.0 Ports

The DELL 7040 is a six USB 3.0 port desktop computer.

Chart Edit

Eight Processor Threads

The DELL 7040 has more processor threads than most of the medium processor core PCs that were released in the last year. Most of the new similar spec desktop computers only have between four and seven processor threads, however this computer has eight processor threads.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Maximum Internal Memory

The smallest maximum internal memory of medium processor core PCs that came out around the same time as the 7040 is 8.1GB and the biggest is 790GB. The DELL 7040 has one of the bigger maximum internal memory (65,536 megabytes) amongst comparable spec personal computers of this age.

Chart Edit

1.4 HDMI Version

This PC has a 1.4 HDMI version, which is typical of many comparable spec personal computers that were released around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Very Shallow

Similar spec desktop computers that are a comparable age to the 7040 have depths of between 33mm and 600mm. The DELL 7040 is quite shallow (only 176 millimeters) compared to most of the other personal computers that were launched around the same time as the 7040.
