We checked 211 owner and expert reviews for Asus desktop computers and found that on average Asus has good ratings compared to other manufacturers. We also found that Asus has good ratings specifically within its few processor core computers range.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on personal computers that are a similar age to it.
Fairly Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency
Few processor core computers that were released around the same time as the K31AD have on-board graphics adapter base frequencies of between 100MHz and 690MHz. With an on-board graphics adapter base frequency of 350 megahertz, the Asus K31AD has a fairly fast on-board graphics adapter base frequency compared to most of the other similar spec personal computers that are a comparable age to the K31AD.
Fairly Big Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
The smallest maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of similar spec computers that were released more than a year ago is 1GB, the biggest is 16GB, and the average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory is 3.1GB. With a maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of 1.74 gigabytes, the Asus K31AD has a fairly big maximum on-board graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other few processor core computers that were launched around the same time as the K31AD.
4.3 On-Board Graphics Adapter OpenGL Version
This personal computer supports a 4.3 on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version, which is the most commonly supported on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version on few processor core computers that are a comparable age to it.
Fairly Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
The Asus K31AD has a quite fast on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency (1,150 megahertz) compared to most of the other few processor core computers that were launched around the same time as the K31AD. The on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies of few processor core computers that were released one year ago range from 750MHz to 1,200MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency is 1,100MHz.
+7 More reasons for
Quite Fast Processor Clock Speed
The average processor clock speed of few processor core computers that were launched more than a year ago is 2.8GHz, and the processor clock speeds range from 0.8GHz to 3.9GHz. The Asus K31AD has one of the faster processor clock speeds (3.7 gigahertz) amongst few processor core computers of this age.
Fairly Big Total Storage Capacity
With a total storage capacity of 1,000 gigabyte, the Asus K31AD has a fairly big total storage capacity compared to most of the other few processor core computers that have been available for more than a year. The total storage capacity of PCs that are a similar age to the K31AD range from 8GB to 3TB, and the average total storage capacity is 540GB.
If you would prefer a PC with a bigger total storage capacity then you might also want to consider the Acer Revo One RL85 (£299.99) (2TB) which also has a higher rating.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This personal computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most commonly supported PCI Express slots version on few processor core computers that have been around for around the same time as it.
Supports Six Compatible Memory Cards
The number of compatible memory card supported by the Asus K31AD is more than most desktop computers of this spec and age. This desktop computer supports an SD compatible memory card, which is the most frequently supported compatible memory card supported by few processor core computers that are a comparable age to the K31AD. The compatible memory cards "Memory Stick (MS)", "MMC", "MS PRO", "SDHC" and "xD" are also supported by this Asus personal computer.
7.1 Audio Output Channel
The Asus K31AD has a 7.1 audio output channel which is better than the 5.1 audio output channel found on most comparable spec PCs that came out more than a year ago.
This personal computer's audio output (7.1) is actually the best audio output across all PCs of a similar type and age to the K31AD.
The worst audio output amongst comparable types of personal computer is 5.1.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this computer is DVD Super Multi, which is the most frequently found optical drive type on few processor core computers that have been available for a similar time to it.
4 Reasons Against
Only Two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
Most desktop computers that were launched more than a year ago have between one and seven USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports, including the Asus K31AD which has two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this PC is HDD, which is the most frequently found storage medium on desktop computers of a similar age and type 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 Two USB 3.0 Ports
The Asus K31AD is a two USB 3.0 port personal computer.
With a weight of 8.6 kilograms, the Asus K31AD is one of the heavier desktop computers of a comparable age and type to the K31AD amongst comparable spec computers of this age. Across all the comparable spec PCs that were launched around the same time as the K31AD the weights range from 140g to 14kg, and the average weight is 4.3kg.
