Acer Has Good Reviews for Its PCs
On average Acer medium processor core computers have good reviews compared to other brands as do all computers manufactured by Acer.
Quite Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
The slowest on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of computers that have been around for a comparable time to the Aspire XC-605 is 700MHz and the fastest is 1,300MHz. At 1,200 megahertz, the Aspire XC-605 has a quite fast on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other comparable spec personal computers that have been around for a similar time to the Aspire XC-605.
Quite Fast Processor Clock Speed
With a processor clock speed of 3.6 gigahertz, the Aspire XC-605 has a quite fast processor clock speed compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that are a comparable age to the Aspire XC-605. Across all the comparable spec PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the Aspire XC-605 the processor clock speeds range from 1.3GHz to 4GHz.
Quite Big Total Storage Capacity
With a total storage capacity of 1,000 gigabyte, the Acer Aspire XC-605 has one of the bigger total storage capacity amongst comparable spec personal computers of this age. The average total storage capacity of medium processor core computers that came out more than a year ago is 770GB, and the total storage capacity range from 4GB to 3.6TB.
PCs with a bigger total storage capacity that might also be worth looking at include the Asus G20AJ (£778.94) (1TB).
Fairly Fast Maximum Turbo Frequency
The average maximum turbo frequency of PCs of this spec and age is 3.6GHz, and the maximum turbo frequencies range from 1.8GHz to 4.4GHz. At 4 gigahertz, the Acer Aspire XC-605 has a quite fast maximum turbo frequency compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that are a similar age to the Aspire XC-605.
+8 More reasons for
L3 Processor Cache Level
This PC has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that have been around for around the same time as it.
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is the most commonly found cabling technology on personal computers of a similar age and type to it.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This PC supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most commonly supported PCI Express slots version on desktop computers of a similar age and spec to it.
Eight Processor Threads
The Acer Aspire XC-605 has more processor threads than most of the computers that have been available for more than a year. This personal computer is a eight processor thread personal computer compared to most of the medium processor core computers that came out around the same time as the Aspire XC-605 which only have between four and seven processor threads.
Fairly Big Processor Cache
The processor caches of PCs of this age and type range from 2MB to 10MB, and the average processor cache is 6.6MB. With a processor cache of 8 megabytes, the Acer Aspire XC-605 has one of the bigger processor caches amongst medium processor core computers of this age.
GDDR Discrete Graphics Memory Type
This PC supports a GDDR5 discrete graphics memory type, which is typical of many desktop computers that have been on the market for around the same time as it.
The widths of personal computers of this type and age range from 33mm to 510mm, and the average width is 190mm. With a width of only 100 millimeters, the Aspire XC-605 is one of the narrower medium processor core computers that are a comparable age to the Aspire XC-605 amongst PCs of this age.
6 Reasons Against
Only Two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
The Aspire XC-605 is a two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port desktop computer.
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this computer is HDD, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that have been on the market for around the same time as it. A Hard Disk Drive (HDD) is the traditional storage method for computers. A HDD stores the information on magnetic disks. HDD drives are cheap, but they are slower than Flash and SSD bases storage systems.
Computers with a faster storage speed that might also be worth considering include the Fujitsu W530 (£127.99) (SSD).
Only 11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This PC supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is typical of many desktop computers of this age and spec.
Only Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the Aspire XC-605 is more than most medium processor core computers that have been on the market for around the same time as it. The most commonly found memory slot is 4x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this personal computer. The memory slots 2x DIMM are also found on this Acer computer.
+3 More reasons against
Only Two USB 3.0 Ports
The Acer Aspire XC-605 is a two USB 3.0 port PC.
Only One PCI Express X1 Slot
Most comparable spec PCs that came out around the same time as the Aspire XC-605 have between one and two PCI Express x1 slots, including the Aspire XC-605 which has one PCI Express x1 slot.
3 Other reasons to consider the Acer Aspire XC-605
Released Over a Year Ago
This desktop computer has been on the market for over a year.
Average Hard Drive Capacity
At 1,000 gigabyte, the Acer Aspire XC-605 has a relatively average hard drive capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that have been available for around the same time as the Aspire XC-605.
Average Internal Memory
At 8 gigabytes, the Aspire XC-605 has a relatively standard internal memory compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that were launched around the same time as the Aspire XC-605.
If this PC internal memory is not big enough for you then you might also want to look at the HP 810-477na (£939.99) (12GB).
