+8 More reasons for
L3 Processor Cache Level
This desktop computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that were launched around the same time as it.
Fairly Fast Maximum Turbo Frequency
Across all the medium processor core computers that have been on the market for more than a year the maximum turbo frequencies range from 1.8GHz to 4.4GHz, and the average maximum turbo frequency is 3.6GHz. With a maximum turbo frequency of 4 gigahertz, the OptiPlex 9020 MT has a quite fast maximum turbo frequency compared to most of the other similar spec desktop computers that have been around for around the same time as the OptiPlex 9020 MT.
Eight Processor Threads
The DELL OptiPlex 9020 MT has more processor threads than most of the medium processor core computers that are a similar age to the OptiPlex 9020 MT. Most of the desktop computers of this age and spec only have between four and seven processor threads, however this personal computer has eight processor threads.
Four USB 3.0 Ports
Most personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the OptiPlex 9020 MT have between one and eight USB 3.0 ports, including the DELL OptiPlex 9020 MT which has four USB 3.0 ports.
At only 240 millimeters, the OptiPlex 9020 MT is fairly shallow compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the OptiPlex 9020 MT. The shallowest computer of this age and type is 31mm deep, the deepest is 760mm, and the average depth is 350mm.
The OptiPlex 9020 MT is one of the lighter PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the OptiPlex 9020 MT (only 3.3 kilograms) amongst medium processor core computers of this age. Computers that came out around the same time as the OptiPlex 9020 MT have weights of between 38g and 23kg, and the average weight is 7.6kg.
Across all the computers of a similar age and type to the OptiPlex 9020 MT the widths range from 33mm to 510mm, and the average width is 190mm. When compared to other medium processor core computers that have been around for around the same time as the OptiPlex 9020 MT, the width of the OptiPlex 9020 MT of only 65 millimeters is one of the narrowest.
3 Reasons Against
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this personal computer is HDD, which is typical of many similar spec computers that have been available for 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.
Only 11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This PC supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is the most frequently supported on-board graphics adapter DirectX version on PCs that were released around the same time as it.
Only Has One Memory Slot
The OptiPlex 9020 MT has a greater number of memory slots than most personal computers of this spec and age. The most frequently found memory slot is 4x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this personal computer. The memory slots 2x DIMM are also found on this DELL PC.
5 Other reasons to consider the DELL OptiPlex 9020 MT
