On average DELL medium processor core computers have good reviews compared to other manufacturers as do all PCs produced by DELL.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on comparable spec personal computers that have been available for around the same time as it.
Just Released Eight Months Ago
The OptiPlex 7020 was only relased by DELL eight months ago. Newer computers like this one are likely to have more advanced features.
Fairly Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
Desktop computers that were released in the last 12 months have on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies of between 500MHz and 1,400MHz. The OptiPlex 7020 has one of the faster on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies (1,150 megahertz) amongst medium processor core computers of this age.
SSD Storage Medium
The OptiPlex 7020 has an SSD storage medium which is faster than most personal computers that have been around for a comparable time to it. Most latest similar spec desktop computers 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 actually the best storage speed across all latest PCs.
An HDD storage medium is the worst storage speed amongst similar types of personal computer.
The OptiPlex 7020 has more PCI Express x16 slots than most of the similar spec desktop computers that are a comparable age to the OptiPlex 7020. This personal computer is a two PCI Express x16 slot computer compared to most of the latest medium processor core computers which only have one PCI Express x16 slot.
+7 More reasons for
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This desktop computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is the most frequently found cabling technology on desktop computers that came out in the last year.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many latest comparable spec personal computers.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This desktop computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most frequently found processor cache level on computers that have been around for the last year.
Gold EPEAT Compliance
This computer has a Gold EPEAT compliance, which is typical of many comparable spec computers that have been on the market for a similar time to it.
Six USB 2.0 Ports
The OptiPlex 7020 is a six USB 2.0 port desktop computer. Most of the other computers that were launched around the same time as the OptiPlex 7020 have between one and nine USB 2.0 ports.
Has One Memory Slot
The DELL OptiPlex 7020 has a greater number of memory slots than most medium processor core computers that are a similar age to it. This personal computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most commonly found memory slot found on medium processor core computers that are a similar age to the OptiPlex 7020.
7 Reasons Against
Quite Small Total Storage Capacity
When compared to other medium processor core computers that are a comparable age to the OptiPlex 7020 that we have checked, the OptiPlex 7020's total storage capacity of only 128 gigabytes is one of the smallest. Across all the medium processor core computers that are a comparable age to the OptiPlex 7020 the total storage capacity range from 32GB to 3.5TB.
If this computer total storage capacity is not big enough for you then you might want to consider the 400 G3 (256GB), the 400 G3 SFF (256GB), or the 280 G2 (500GB) all from HP.
Very Small Max Internal Memory Supported Processor
Across all the latest personal computers the max internal memory supported processors range from 2GB to 1.6TB, and the average max internal memory supported processor is 90GB. At only 32 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 7020 has a quite small max internal memory supported processor compared to most of the other computers that are a comparable age to the OptiPlex 7020.
Only 11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This desktop computer supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is the most frequently supported on-board graphics adapter DirectX version on medium processor core computers that are a similar age to it.
Only 10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Rate
This personal computer supports a 10|100|1000 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN data rate, which is the most frequently supported Ethernet LAN data rate on medium processor core computers that are a similar age to it.
+4 More reasons against
Very Small Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
The maximum on-board graphics adapter memories of recently released medium processor core computers range from 1GB to 64GB. With a maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of only 1.024 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 7020 has one of the smaller maximum on-board graphics adapter memories amongst similar spec computers of this age.
Quite Slow Memory Clock Speed
The slowest memory clock speed of recently released similar spec personal computers is 1,000MHz and the fastest is 2,400MHz. The OptiPlex 7020 has a quite slow memory clock speed (only 1,600 megahertz) compared to most of the other latest PCs.
The average weight of recently released comparable spec computers is 7kg, and the weights range from 38g to 23kg. At 9.4 kilograms, the OptiPlex 7020 is fairly heavy compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that have been available for a comparable time to the OptiPlex 7020.
2 Other reasons to consider the DELL OptiPlex 7020
Average Processor Clock Speed
At 3.3 gigahertz, the DELL OptiPlex 7020 has a pretty standard processor clock speed compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that were released in the last year.
We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 3.3GHz processor clock speed computers currently available including the DELL OptiPlex 7020 which is cheaper.
Desktop computers with a faster processor clock speed that might also be worth looking at include the HP 400 G3 (3.4GHz).
Average Internal Memory
At 8 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 7020 has a relatively standard internal memory compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that were released in the last year.
We compared this PC to all the other 8GB memory PCs and we think cheaper desktop computers such as the DELL OptiPlex 7020 is also worth considering.
