Average Processor Clock Speed

At 3.2 gigahertz, the OptiPlex 3040 has a relatively typical processor clock speed compared to most of the other similar spec desktop computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the OptiPlex 3040.

We compared this desktop computer to all the other 3.2GHz processor clock speed computers and we think the Aspire XC-705[pl_2782875_price], and the Extensa M2610[pl_2868255_price] both from Acer which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If you are looking for a desktop computer with a faster processor clock speed then you might want to consider the 400 G3 MT[pl_3810816_price] (3.3GHz), or the 400 G3[pl_3787108_price] (3.4GHz) both from HP.
