GDDR Discrete Graphics Memory Type
This PC supports a GDDR5 discrete graphics memory type, which is the most frequently supported discrete graphics memory type on medium processor core computers that have been available for around the same time as it.
8 Reasons Against
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this PC is HDD+SSD, which is the most commonly found storage medium on medium processor core computers that have been available for a comparable time to 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.
Only 11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This desktop computer supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is the most commonly supported on-board graphics adapter DirectX version on computers that are a similar age to it.
Quite Small Solid-State Drive Capacity
With a solid-state drive capacity of only 120 gigabytes, the Acer Predator AG3-605 has one of the smaller solid-state drive capacities amongst medium processor core computers of this age. The smallest solid-state drive capacity of desktop computers of this type and age is 8GB, the biggest is 1TB, and the average solid-state drive capacity is 210GB.
Very Small Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
The Predator AG3-605 has one of the smaller maximum on-board graphics adapter memories (only 1.024 gigabytes) amongst medium processor core computers of this age. The smallest maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of similar spec personal computers that have been around for a comparable time to the Predator AG3-605 is 1GB, the biggest is 64GB, and the average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory is 2.8GB.
+5 More reasons against
Only One DisplayPort
The Acer Predator AG3-605 is a one DisplayPort personal computer.
Quite Small Processor Cache
At only 6 megabytes, the Predator AG3-605 has a fairly small processor cache compared to most of the other PCs of this age and type. The smallest processor cache of medium processor core computers that were launched around the same time as the Predator AG3-605 is 2MB, the biggest is 10MB, and the average processor cache is 6.6MB.
Only Four Processor Threads
The Acer Predator AG3-605 is a four processor thread desktop computer.
Across all the comparable spec PCs that have been around for around the same time as the Predator AG3-605 the weights range from 38g to 23kg, and the average weight is 7.6kg. The Predator AG3-605 is fairly heavy (12 kilograms) compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the Predator AG3-605.
2 Other reasons to consider the Acer Predator AG3-605
Released Over a Year Ago
It was over a year ago when this medium processor core computer was released.
Average Processor Clock Speed
At 3.3 gigahertz, the Acer Predator AG3-605 has a fairly typical processor clock speed compared to most of the other comparable spec personal computers that have been available for more than a year.
If this Acer desktop computer processor clock speed is not fast enough for you then you might also want to look at the Sedatech UC00725I3 (£541.06) (3.4GHz), or the Acer Veriton M6640G (£579.92) (3.4GHz).
