Acer has good average reviews for its medium processor core computers as well as across its entire desktop computer range compared to other manufacturers.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This desktop computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that have been available for more than a year.
Quite Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
The Predator G3-605 has a quite fast on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency (1,200 megahertz) compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that came out around the same time as the Predator G3-605. Across all the medium processor core computers that have been around for a similar time to the Predator G3-605 the on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies range from 700MHz to 1,300MHz.
Fairly Fast Processor Clock Speed
At 3.6 gigahertz, the Predator G3-605 has a quite fast processor clock speed compared to most of the other PCs that are a comparable age to the Predator G3-605. The average processor clock speed of desktop computers that came out around the same time as the Predator G3-605 is 3.1GHz.
Fairly Big Internal Memory
The Predator G3-605 has one of the bigger internal memory (16 gigabytes) amongst medium processor core computers of this age. The smallest internal memory of PCs of this type and age is 2GB, the biggest is 64GB, and the average internal memory is 7.8GB.
Quite Big Total Storage Capacity
The smallest total storage capacity of desktop computers that came out more than a year ago is 4GB, the biggest is 3.6TB, and the average total storage capacity is 770GB. At 1,256 gigabyte, the Acer Predator G3-605 has a quite big total storage capacity compared to most of the other computers that came out around the same time as the Predator G3-605.
If you are looking for a computer with a bigger total storage capacity then you might also want to look at the H50 (£599.99) (2TB), or the H50 (£379.97) (2TB) both from Lenovo.
+9 More reasons for
Quite Fast Maximum Turbo Frequency
With a maximum turbo frequency of 4 gigahertz, the Acer Predator G3-605 has one of the faster maximum turbo frequencies amongst comparable spec PCs of this age. Across all the similar spec computers that have been available for more than a year the maximum turbo frequencies range from 1.8GHz to 4.4GHz, and the average maximum turbo frequency is 3.6GHz.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This personal computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most commonly found processor cache level on medium processor core computers that have been available for a similar time to it.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This personal computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many PCs that are a comparable age to it.
Fairly Big Solid-State Drive Capacity
The Predator G3-605 has a fairly big solid-state drive capacity (256 gigabytes) compared to most of the other personal computers of this type and age. Personal computers of this type and age have solid-state drive capacities of between 8GB and 1TB, and the average solid-state drive capacity is 210GB.
Eight Processor Threads
The Acer Predator G3-605 has more processor threads than most of the medium processor core computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Predator G3-605. This personal computer is a eight processor thread PC compared to most of the medium processor core computers that have been around for a comparable time to the Predator G3-605 which only have between four and seven processor threads.
Quite Big Processor Cache
Across all the medium processor core computers that are a comparable age to the Predator G3-605 the processor caches range from 2MB to 10MB. The Predator G3-605 has a quite big processor cache (8 megabytes) compared to most of the other desktop computers of a comparable type and age to the Predator G3-605.
Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the Predator G3-605 is more than most computers of a comparable age and type to it. This computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most commonly found memory slot found on desktop computers of this age and spec.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this personal computer is DVD Super Multi DL, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that were released around the same time as it.
5 Reasons Against
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this computer is HDD+SSD, which is the most commonly found storage medium on similar spec personal computers that are a comparable age 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 computer supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is the most commonly supported on-board graphics adapter DirectX version on desktop computers of this spec and age.
Only One DisplayPort
The Acer Predator G3-605 is a one DisplayPort computer. Most of the other medium processor core computers that are a comparable age to the Predator G3-605 have between one and three DisplayPorts.
Only One PCI Express X16 Slot
Most medium processor core computers that are a similar age to the Predator G3-605 have one PCI Express x16 slot, including the Predator G3-605 which has one PCI Express x16 slot.
+2 More reasons against
The weights of personal computers of this spec and age range from 38g to 23kg. At 12 kilograms, the Acer Predator G3-605 is fairly heavy compared to most of the other PCs of a comparable spec and age to the Predator G3-605.
