Quite Big Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory

With a maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of 16 gigabytes, the Chromebox2 G004U has a fairly big maximum on-board graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other personal computers that have been around for more than a year. The maximum on-board graphics adapter memories of similar spec PCs that were released one year ago range from 1GB to 16GB, and the average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory is 3.1GB.

Chart Edit

4.3 On-Board Graphics Adapter OpenGL Version

This computer supports a 4.3 on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version, which is typical of many personal computers of a similar type and age to it.

Chart Edit

SSD Storage Medium

The Chromebox2 G004U has an SSD storage medium which is faster than most few processor core computers that are a similar age to it. Most few processor core computers that were released around the same time as it have an HDD storage medium. Solid State Drives (SSD) store information in transistors on a circuit board rather than on optical or magnetic media. This has the advantage of being much faster than a traditional HDD drive.

This PC's storage speed (SSD) is in fact the best storage speed amongst all comparable spec computers that have been available for more than a year.

The worst storage speed across similar types of PC is HDD.
