Asus has good average reviews for its medium processor core personal computers as well as across its entire personal computer range compared to other manufacturers.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many computers of a comparable age and spec to it.
Fairly Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
With an on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of 1,200 megahertz, the Asus G20AJ has a quite fast on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other PCs that came out around the same time as the G20AJ. The on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies of similar spec desktop computers that came out around the same time as the G20AJ range from 640MHz to 1,300MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency is 1,100MHz.
Fairly Fast Processor Clock Speed
With a processor clock speed of 3.6 gigahertz, the Asus G20AJ has one of the faster processor clock speeds amongst personal computers of this age. Across all the PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the G20AJ the processor clock speeds range from 1.3GHz to 4GHz.
Other 3.6GHz processor clock speed desktop computers currently available which you might want to look at include the HP Z230 (£669.57) which is cheaper.
Quite Big Total Storage Capacity
The total storage capacity of medium processor core personal computers that have been around for a similar time to the G20AJ range from 4GB to 3.6TB, and the average total storage capacity is 840GB. At 1,008 gigabyte, the Asus G20AJ has a fairly big total storage capacity compared to most of the other similar spec personal computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the G20AJ.
If this Asus PC total storage capacity is too small for you then you might also want to look at the Predator G3-710 (£743.98) (2TB and cheaper), the Aspire X3-710 (2TB and cheaper), or the Aspire X3-710 (£586.44) (2TB and cheaper) all from Acer.
Fairly Big Internal Memory
The average internal memory of medium processor core personal computers that came out more than a year ago is 8.3GB. At 8 gigabytes, the Asus G20AJ has a fairly big internal memory compared to most of the other personal computers that have been around for a similar time to the G20AJ.
We think you might also be interested in some of the other 8GB memory personal computers currently available including the Alienware X51 (£822.94) which is cheaper.
If this personal computer internal memory is not big enough for you then you might also want to look at the Acer Aspire X3-710 (12GB) which is also cheaper.
+10 More reasons for
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This personal computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that came out more than a year ago.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This PC has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that were released around the same time as it.
Quite Fast Maximum Turbo Frequency
The Asus G20AJ has a fairly fast maximum turbo frequency (4 gigahertz) compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to the G20AJ. Medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the G20AJ have maximum turbo frequencies of between 1.8GHz and 4.4GHz, and the average maximum turbo frequency is 3.6GHz.
Blu-Ray DVD Combo Optical Drive Type
The Asus G20AJ has a Blu-Ray DVD Combo optical drive type which is better than most comparable spec PCs that have been on the market for more than a year. Most medium processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to it have a DVD Super Multi optical drive type.
A Blu-Ray DVD Combo optical drive type is in fact the best optical drive type amongst all comparable spec PCs that came out more than a year ago.
The worst optical drive type across similar types of computer is DVD+RW.
Eight Processor Threads
The Asus G20AJ has more processor threads than most of the personal computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the G20AJ. Most of the medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the G20AJ only have between four and seven processor threads, however this computer has eight processor threads.
Quite Big Processor Cache
At 8 megabytes, the Asus G20AJ has a quite big processor cache compared to most of the other computers of a similar age and type to the G20AJ. Across all the desktop computers that have been around for around the same time as the G20AJ the processor caches range from 2MB to 10MB.
Four USB 3.0 Ports
Most medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the G20AJ have between one and seven USB 3.0 ports, including the Asus G20AJ which has four USB 3.0 ports.
7.1 Audio Output Channel
This PC has a 7.1 audio output channel, which is typical of many computers of this spec and age.
The average width of desktop computers of a similar age and type to the G20AJ is 180mm. At only 104 millimeters, the Asus G20AJ is fairly narrow compared to most of the other personal computers of this spec and age.
6 Reasons Against
Price Has Recently Increased by £29.04
In the last 58 days the price of the G20AJ has increased by £29.04.
Quite Slow Max Memory Bandwidth Supported Processor
Personal computers of this age and type have max memory bandwidth supported processor of between 10GB/s and 68GB/s, and the average max memory bandwidth supported processor is 30GB/s. The Asus G20AJ has one of the slower max memory bandwidth supported processor (only 25.6 gigabytes per second) amongst comparable spec personal computers of this age.
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this computer is HDD+SSD, which is the most frequently found storage medium on PCs of a comparable spec and 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.
Quite Small Solid-State Drive Capacity
With a solid-state drive capacity of only 8 gigabytes, the Asus G20AJ has one of the smallest solid-state drive capacities amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age. Desktop computers of this type and age have solid-state drive capacities of between 8GB and 1TB, and the average solid-state drive capacity is 200GB.
+3 More reasons against
Very Small Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
With a maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of only 1.024 gigabytes, the Asus G20AJ has one of the smaller maximum on-board graphics adapter memories amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age. The average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of medium processor core personal computers that were released around the same time as the G20AJ is 4.3GB, and the maximum on-board graphics adapter memories range from 1GB to 64GB.
Very Low System Bus Data Transfer Rate
At only 5 Gigatransfers per second, the Asus G20AJ has a quite low system bus data transfer rate compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were released more than a year ago. The system bus data transfer rates of desktop computers that have been available for a comparable time to the G20AJ range from 5GT/s to 8GT/s, and the average system bus data transfer rate is 6GT/s.
