The Lenovo ThinkCentre M92p Small supports Gen3 Intel Core technology. The 3rd gen Intel Core CPUs have the code name Ivy Bridge. They use a 22nm manufacturing process developed by Intel. Here the maximum number of core are 6 with i7 processor.
Desktops model use either the LGA 1155 or the LGA 2011 sockets and DDR3-1333 to DDR3-1600 RAM. CPUs often used with this model are Core i3 3220, Core i5 3470, and Core i7 3770.
A RAM slot (also called memory socket) is where RAM memory sticks are inserted into the computer. Most desktops will have two to four slots. This model has 4 RAM slots. This should be sufficient for anyone especially for power users who will need significant amounts of RAM.
Faster RAM speeds permit your processor to access the data stored in the RAM memory faster. This is important for the overall speed of your system. The motherboard of the Lenovo ThinkCentre M92p Small supports RAM speeds of up to 1600 MT/s. In case you want faster RAM speeds, you will need to upgrade your system with a newer generation one.
Size of the RAM is another important parameter. It is important not to run out of RAM memory during everyday work. If this happens often, you may see significant drop in performance. For everyday work and light gaming we recommend 8GB of RAM. For everything else, go for 16GB and more. The Lenovo ThinkCentre M92p Small supports a maximum of 32 GB of RAM.
Ports are something important that people should pay more attention to. For example, if you don’t have enough USB ports, using external devices becomes problematic. Before buying, considering your use case and plann for extension ports in advance.
