3 PCI Express Slots Version
This PC supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most frequently supported PCI Express slots version on medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for more than a year.
The Predator G3-605 is a three DisplayPort personal computer. Most of the other personal computers of this type and age have between one and three DisplayPorts.
Quite Big Solid-State Drive Capacity
Personal computers of this spec and age have solid-state drive capacities of between 8GB and 1TB. With a solid-state drive capacity of 256 gigabytes, the Predator G3-605 has one of the bigger solid-state drive capacities amongst desktop computers of this age.
Eight Processor Threads
The Predator G3-605 has more processor threads than most of the similar spec PCs that were released more than a year ago. Most of the personal computers of this age and type only have between four and seven processor threads, however this desktop computer has eight processor threads.
Fairly Big Processor Cache
The average processor cache of personal computers of a similar age and type to the Predator G3-605 is 6.6MB. The Predator G3-605 has one of the bigger processor caches (8 megabytes) amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age.
Quite Big Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory
The average discrete graphics adapter memory of medium processor core personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the Predator G3-605 is 3GB. The Acer Predator G3-605 has one of the bigger discrete graphics adapter memory (4,096 megabytes) amongst comparable spec PCs of this age.
Has One Memory Slot
The Predator G3-605 has a greater number of memory slots than most similar spec personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as it. This computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most commonly found memory slot found on medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the Predator G3-605.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
