Chart Edit

Very Big Processor Cache

The smallest processor cache of similar spec PCs that came out around the same time as the P900 is 12MB, the biggest is 30MB, and the average processor cache is 20MB. When compared to other personal computers of this type and age that we have checked, the processor cache of the Lenovo P900 of 30 megabytes is one of the biggest.

Chart Edit

Fairly Fast Memory Clock Speed

At 2,133 megahertz, the Lenovo P900 has a quite fast memory clock speed compared to most of the other computers of a similar age and type to the P900. The memory clock speeds of many processor core personal computers that were released more than two years ago range from 1,300MHz to 2,200MHz.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Maximum Internal Memory

The Lenovo P900 has a quite big maximum internal memory (256 gigabytes) compared to most of the other PCs of this age and type. The smallest maximum internal memory of many processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to the P900 is 32GB, the biggest is 520GB, and the average maximum internal memory is 140GB.

Chart Edit

DDR4-SDRAM Internal Memory Type

The Lenovo P900 has a newer internal memory type than most many processor core personal computers that have been available for around the same time as it. This computer has a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type, whereas most desktop computers of a similar spec and age to it have a DDR3-SDRAM internal memory type.

A DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type is actually the best internal memory type amongst all PCs of this spec and age.

The worst internal memory type amongst similar types of computer is DDR3-SDRAM.

The Lenovo P900 is a three 5.25" bay desktop computer. Most of the other PCs of a similar type and age to the P900 only have between one and two 5.25" bays.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Solid-State Drive Capacity

Across all the PCs that have been around for a comparable time to the P900 the solid-state drive capacities range from 120GB to 1TB, and the average solid-state drive capacity is 320GB. The Lenovo P900 has a quite big solid-state drive capacity (512 gigabytes) compared to most of the other many processor core personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the P900.

Chart Edit

Four 3.5" Bays

The Lenovo P900 is a four 3.5" bay computer.

Chart Edit

Supports One Case Placement

The number of placements supported by the Lenovo P900 is more than most many processor core personal computers that have been available for more than two years. This personal computer supports a Vertical case placement, which is the most frequently supported case placement supported by similar spec personal computers that have been around for more than two years.

Chart Edit

3 Reasons Against

Only Four USB 2.0 Ports

Most desktop computers of a similar age and type to the P900 have between two and nine USB 2.0 ports, including the Lenovo P900 which has four USB 2.0 ports.

Chart Edit

Only 12 Processor Threads

The Lenovo P900 is a 12 processor thread computer. Most of the other comparable spec PCs that came out more than two years ago have between 6 and 23 processor threads.

Chart Edit
