Only Two Displays Supported by On-Board Grap

Most medium processor core personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the 251 have between two and three displays supported by on-board grap, including the HP 251 which has two displays supported by on-board grap.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Max Memory Bandwidth Supported Processor

When compared to other desktop computers that have been around for around the same time as the 251, the HP 251's max memory bandwidth supported processor of only 21.3 gigabytes per second is one of the slowest. The max memory bandwidth supported processor of computers of a similar age and type to the 251 range from 10GB/s to 68GB/s.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Max Internal Memory Supported Processor

The max internal memory supported processor of the HP 251 of only 8 gigabytes is one of the smallest amongst comparable spec PCs that have been on the market for a similar time to the 251. The average max internal memory supported processor of medium processor core personal computers that were released one year ago is 65GB.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency

The on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies of PCs of this type and age range from 640MHz to 1,300MHz. When compared to other desktop computers of this age and spec, the HP 251's on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of only 896 megahertz is one of the slowest.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Processor Clock Speed

The processor clock speeds of PCs of a similar age and spec to the 251 range from 1.3GHz to 4GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 3.1GHz. With a processor clock speed of only 2.41 gigahertz, the HP 251 has a quite slow processor clock speed compared to most of the other computers that were released one year ago.

Chart Edit

Only HDD Storage Medium

The storage speed of this computer is HDD, which is typical of many computers of this type and age. 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.

Chart Edit

At only 4 gigabytes, the HP 251 has a fairly small internal memory compared to most of the other similar spec computers that have been available for a comparable time to the 251.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Maximum Internal Memory

At only 8,192 megabytes, the HP 251 has a very small maximum internal memory compared to most of the other desktop computers of this age and spec. PCs that were released one year ago have maximum internal memory of between 2GB and 790GB.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Processor Cache

The HP 251 has one of the smallest processor caches (only 2 megabytes) amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age. Medium processor core personal computers that were launched around the same time as the 251 have processor caches of between 2MB and 10MB.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Maximum Internal Memory

When compared to other personal computers of this type and age that we have assessed, the maximum internal memory of the HP 251 of only 8 gigabytes is one of the smallest. Across all the desktop computers that have been around for a comparable time to the 251 the maximum internal memory range from 2GB to 260GB, and the average maximum internal memory is 33GB.

Chart Edit

Very Slow Maximum Turbo Frequency

Across all the PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the 251 the maximum turbo frequencies range from 1.8GHz to 4.4GHz. The HP 251 has a fairly slow maximum turbo frequency (only 2.66 gigahertz) compared to most of the other personal computers of a similar type and age to the 251.

Chart Edit

Only Has One Memory Slot

The number of memory slots found on the HP 251 is more than most desktop computers of this age and spec. The most commonly found memory slot is 4x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this computer. The memory slots 2x DIMM are also found on this HP desktop computer.
