DDR3L-SDRAM Internal Memory Type
The Asus GR6 has a DDR3L-SDRAM internal memory type which is newer than the DDR3-SDRAM internal memory type found on most personal computers that have been around for a comparable time to it. Across all few processor core computers that are a similar age to the GR6 the best internal memory type is DDR4-SDRAM and the worst is DDR3-SDRAM.
