The Dell OptiPlex 3050 SFF supports Gen8  Intel Core technology. The 8th generation of Intel Core processors were introduced in 2017. Named Kaby Lake, they are refresh of the 6th gen architecture with few efficiencies and power improvements and the same 14nm manufacturing process. Kaby Lake introduces a new graphics architecture that improves 3D performance, 4K playback and HDCP 2.2 support. Processors in this generation use LGA 1151 socket and have dual-channel support for DDR4-2400 RAM slots.


Dell OptiPlex 3050 SFF has two RAM slots. This is more than enough for most users. For those of you who need extra flexibility and RAM size, go for a model with 4 memory slots.

To cover the needs of your OS, games, and apps, Dell OptiPlex 3050 SFF supports up to 32 GB of DIMM DDR4-2133/2400 RAM. For office work, home use, and light gaming we recommend 8GB of RAM. For everything else, use 16GB or more.

Faster RAM speeds permit your processor to access the data stored inside the memory faster. This is important for the overall speed of your system. The motherboard of the Dell OptiPlex 3050 SFF supports RAM speeds of up to 2400 MT/s.

Wi-Fi Support

Dell OptiPlex 3050 SFF comes equipped with an on-board M.2 2230 (WiFi/BT) slot. This slot is used for a Wi-Fi and Bluetooth combo card.


Ports are important and often people don’t think about them when buying a PC. For example, if you don’t have enough USB ports, using external devices becomes problematic. Before you buy any system, considering your use case, check the number of external devices you are going to use and plan the number of the extension ports accordingly.

USB ports

The Dell OptiPlex 3050 SFF comes with eight USB ports in total. Having more USB ports is always better, but also pay attention to the version of those USB ports. Higher version ports support faster transfer speeds. Unfortunately, this model doesn’t come with a USB 3.1 port. If you need a faster connection for your peripherals, like external Solid State Drive, you will need to choose another model.

Video ports

The DisplayPort (DP) is the most widely used digital interface for transmitting digital video and audio between display devices and PCs. It is good to see that the Dell OptiPlex 3050 SFF is featuring a DisplayPort 1.2. The post version is important if you target higher resolutions with high refresh rate. Although, ver. 1.2 is completely fine for most users, if possible, aim for the higher versions DisplayPort.

The HDMI port is another digital video port you can use to connect external display. It has very similar capabilities to the DisplayPort with few exceptions. Dell OptiPlex 3050 SFF comes with one HDMI 1.4 port(s) on the motherboard. In case your monitor supports another interface, you can always use an adapter.
