Dell OptiPlex 9020 Review

 The Dell OptiPlex 9020 MT(Mini Tower)  was first released in 2013. Although more than 7 years old, this model is still a good option for home and office use. You can even turn this PC into a gaming machine by upgrading the GPU properly.

The Dell OptiPlex 9020 MT is a Mini Tower computer. The MiniTower is usually the biggest factor in shaping business-class desktops. Some manufacturers may use the term Tower when referring to this chassis.

If you are looking for a system with maximum upgradeability, Dell OptiPlex 9020 MT is a good option. Most models in this category have 4 times the PCIe slot, multiple drive compartments, and better cooling.


The Dell OptiPlex 9020 MT supports Intel Core Gen4 technology. The fourth generation of Intel Core processors was released in 2013 and used the Haswell codename. They follow the same 22nm manufacturing process as their predecessor.


The RAM slot (also called the memory socket) is where the RAM is located on the computer. Most desktops will have two to four slots. This model has 4 RAM slots. This should be enough for anyone, especially for power users who need a significant amount of RAM.

Higher RAM speeds up your CPU to access data stored in RAM. This is important for the overall speed of your system. The Dell OptiPlex 9020 MT motherboard supports RAM speeds up to 1600 MT /s. If you want more RAM speed, you need to upgrade your system to a newer generation.

RAM size is another important parameter. It is important not to run out of RAM during daily work. If this happens often, you may see a significant drop in performance. For everyday tasks and light games, we recommend 8 GB of RAM. For other cases, go to 16 GB and more. The Dell OptiPlex 9020 MT supports up to 32 GB of RAM.


Ports are an important thing that people should pay more attention to. For example, if you do not have enough USB ports, using external devices can be a problem. Before buying, consider the use and planning for format ports in advance.

The Dell OptiPlex 9020 MT has a total of 10 USB ports. Having more USB ports is always better, but consider the USB port version as well. Higher versions of USBs support faster transfer speeds. Unfortunately, this model does not have a USB 3.1 port. If you need a faster connection for your accessories, such as a solid-state external drive, you should choose another model.

DisplayPort (DP) is very important for any desktop device because it allows you to connect external monitors. It is good to see that the Dell OptiPlex 9020 MT has DisplayPort. The version of this DisplayPort is also important. Always try to target higher versions of DP as it provides better resolution and refreshes rate.

The HDMI port is another digital video port that allows you to connect external monitors. It has very similar capabilities to DisplayPort with a few exceptions. However, the Dell OptiPlex 9020 MT lacks it. No problem if DisplayPort is available.

SATA slots are located on the system board and are where the HDD, SSD, and optical disk drives are connected. The Dell OptiPlex 9020 MT has a 290 SATA slot (s). Keep in mind that having a small number of SATA slots may limit your options for connecting additional memory drives. Think about your use and decide if the SATA slots provided by this model will suffice.

The M.2 SSD interface allows you to transfer data faster than the old SATA interface. Sometimes the M.2 interface will be 5 times faster or faster. Unfortunately, the Dell OptiPlex 9020 MT does not come with a single device, and you should trust the good old SATA.

Power supply

Having a high-power PSU (power supply unit) is important, especially if you plan to use components such as a dedicated GPU and extra HDD that require extra power. The Dell OptiPlex 9020 MT comes with a 290 watt PSU.

Deciding whether this amount will be sufficient depends on your specific needs and applications. Please note that some models may have more than one PSU option. If possible, get the strongest because it may make future upgrades easier.
