Computer Specs to Boost Your Business

Posted by Aventis Systems, Inc on June 8th, 2018

Whether you own a new graphic design firm that hosts no more than a small handful of talent artists or a gigantic marketing corporation with hundreds of employees arranged in separate branches, it's important to have the right technology for the job. While owning a smaller business may prevent you from getting the most powerful desktops on the market, going the cheap route can be just as punishing with problems such as latency, slow updates, or even total system crashes which only hinder your progress and profits. Understanding the specs for any computer on the market, including the high-end Optiplex 9020, will allow you to make the best guess for what best fits your needs and your price range.

CPU: The Heart

The CPU, or central processing unit, is essentially the center of any computer. It allows your computer to work the way it was intended and to handle major general tasks, from informational and data processing to complex imagery and video manipulation, using a certain number of cores. The more cores that a CPU has, the more information it is able to process simultaneously; this makes computers with a large number of cores to work fast even under heavy duress. Optiplex 9020 models have Intel CPUs ranging from dual to quad-core.

Graphics (GPU:) The Muscles

While the CPU is in charge of managing tasks, the graphics processing unit (GPU) acts as a boost to performance and the ability to multi-task certain programs parallel to the CPU, focusing on number-based data and rendering objects onto the screen. Many modern computers already come with decent integrated graphics chips, designed to conserve energy rather than extreme performance and great for basic tasks such as Internet surfing and mild edits to video and imagery. On the other hand, external dedicated cards take up more energy to work, but allow faster processing and multi-tasking for large, professional style image and video edits.

RAM: The Brain

The Random Access Memory card, or RAM, is a straightforward piece of hardware: it stores information in an easy to access system. Unlike hard drive memory, data stored in RAM allows it to be accessed much faster, especially in the case of running multiple programs at once or doing intensive work on a video or graphics project. The most prominent classification for RAMs is the DDR, or Double Data Rate, is visible on all Optiplex 9020 models, with DDR4 being the most efficient of the four current RAM models.

With this knowledge in your hands, finding the right computer for the job should be easier and your business will prosper. Research more options online and see if the Optiplex 9020 models are the right fit for your office.
