This PC supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many comparable spec PCs that came out more than a year ago.
Quite Big On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
Personal computers of a similar age and spec to the Esprimo Q520 have on-board graphics adapter memory capacities of between 1.7GB and 2.1TB. The Esprimo Q520 has a quite big on-board graphics adapter memory (1.782 gigabytes) compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that are a comparable age to the Esprimo Q520.
SSD Storage Medium
The Esprimo Q520 has an SSD storage medium which is faster than most PCs of a similar type and age to it. Most similar spec computers that were released one year ago 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 PC's storage speed (SSD) is in fact the best storage speed across all PCs of this spec and age.
An HDD storage medium is the worst storage speed amongst similar types of PC.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This desktop computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that have been available for more than a year.
Gold EPEAT Compliance
This computer has a Gold EPEAT compliance, which is the most frequently found EPEAT compliance on PCs that have been available for a comparable time to it.
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This personal computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that have been around for a comparable time to it.
