This computer supports a 4.4 on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version, which is typical of many few processor core personal computers that have been available for the last year.

Chart Edit

Quite Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency

At 350 megahertz, the OptiPlex 3040 has a quite fast on-board graphics adapter base frequency compared to most of the other few processor core personal computers that have been around for the last year. The average on-board graphics adapter base frequency of comparable spec desktop computers that have been around for a similar time to the OptiPlex 3040 is 330MHz.

Chart Edit

Quite Fast Memory Clock Speed Supported by Processor

With a memory clock speed supported by processor of 1,866 megahertz, the OptiPlex 3040 has a quite fast memory clock speed supported by processor compared to most of the other new comparable spec desktop computers. Across all the new few processor core personal computers the memory clock speeds supported by processors range from 1,300MHz to 1,900MHz, and the average memory clock speed supported by processor is 1,500MHz.

Chart Edit

Very Big Max Internal Memory Supported Processor

The smallest max internal memory supported processor of few processor core personal computers that have been on the market for the last year is 8GB, the biggest is 64GB, and the average max internal memory supported processor is 41GB. At 64 gigabytes, the DELL OptiPlex 3040 has a very big max internal memory supported processor compared to most of the other recently released similar spec desktop computers.

Chart Edit

Fairly Fast Max Memory Bandwidth Supported Processor

Few processor core personal computers that were launched in the last year have max memory bandwidth supported processor of between 21GB/s and 35GB/s, and the average max memory bandwidth supported processor is 30GB/s. The DELL OptiPlex 3040 has a quite fast max memory bandwidth supported processor (34.1 gigabytes per second) compared to most of the other new similar spec personal computers.

DELL Personal Computers Have Good Reviews

DELL is one of the superior desktop computer manufacturers according to average reviews from experts and owners, and DELL also has good reviews for its few processor core personal computers.

Chart

Fairly Fast Processor Clock Speed

The slowest processor clock speed of few processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to the OptiPlex 3040 is 1GHz, the fastest is 3.7GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 3.1GHz. The DELL OptiPlex 3040 has a fairly fast processor clock speed (3.7 gigahertz) compared to most of the other comparable spec PCs that have been available for a similar time to the OptiPlex 3040.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 3.7GHz processor clock speed computers currently available including the HP 400 G3 MT, or the Acer Veriton X2640G ($539.49) which is cheaper.

SSD Storage Medium

The DELL OptiPlex 3040 has an SSD storage medium which is faster than most recently released few processor core personal computers. Most PCs that have been around for a comparable time to it have an HDD storage medium. 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.

This personal computer's storage speed (SSD) is in fact the best storage speed across all latest similar spec desktop computers.

Across comparable types of personal computer the worst storage speed is HDD.

We compared all the other SSD PCs to this personal computer and we think cheaper computers such as the DELL OptiPlex 3040 ($540.60) is also worth considering.
