Asus has good average reviews for its medium processor core personal computers as well as across its entire computer 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 PCs that have been available for more than a year.
Fairly Big Hard Drive Capacity
The smallest hard drive capacity of medium processor core personal computers that have been around for a comparable time to the K31AD is 1GB, the biggest is 3TB, and the average hard drive capacity is 930GB. At 1,000 gigabyte, the Asus K31AD has a quite big hard drive capacity compared to most of the other comparable spec computers that were launched around the same time as the K31AD.
If this personal computer hard drive capacity is not big enough for you then you might also want to look at the DELL 8900 (2TB) which also has a higher rating.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This PC supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most frequently supported PCI Express slots version on computers of a similar age and type to it.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This desktop computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many personal computers that have been on the market for more than a year.
Supports Six Compatible Memory Cards
The number of compatible memory card supported by the Asus K31AD is more than most PCs that have been around for around the same time as it. This computer supports an SD compatible memory card, which is the most commonly supported compatible memory card supported by similar spec desktop 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 personal computer.
+3 More reasons for
7.1 Audio Output Channel
This PC has a 7.1 audio output channel, which is the most frequently found audio output channel on PCs of a comparable age and spec to it.
GDDR Discrete Graphics Memory Type
This PC supports a GDDR3 discrete graphics memory type, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that were launched around the same time as it.
12 Reasons Against
Quite Small Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory
Similar spec computers that have been around for a comparable time to the K31AD have discrete graphics adapter memory capacities of between 1GB and 8.2TB, and the average discrete graphics adapter memory is 1.8TB. At only 1 gigabyte, the Asus K31AD has a very small discrete graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the K31AD.
Only Two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
The Asus K31AD is a two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port desktop computer. Most of the other similar spec desktop computers that have been available for a comparable time to the K31AD have between one and seven USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.
Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
The on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies of desktop computers that have been around for a similar time to the K31AD range from 640MHz to 1,300MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency is 1,100MHz. At only 1,100 megahertz, the Asus K31AD has a quite slow on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were released one year ago.
Only One Graphics Adapter DVI Port
Most medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the K31AD have one graphics adapter DVI port, including the Asus K31AD which has one graphics adapter DVI port.
+9 More reasons against
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this desktop computer is HDD, which is the most frequently found storage medium on PCs that were launched more than a year ago. 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.
If the storage speed of this computer is not fast enough for you then you might also want to consider the HP EliteDesk 800 G2 Mini (£595.00) (SSD).
Very Small Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
The average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of desktop computers of this age and type is 4.3GB. The Asus K31AD has one of the smaller maximum on-board graphics adapter memories (only 1.024 gigabytes) amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age.
Only Has One Memory Slot
The Asus K31AD has a greater number of memory slots than most similar spec PCs that have been available for a comparable time to it. The most frequently found memory slot is 4x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this personal computer. The memory slots 2x DIMM are also found on this desktop computer.
Quite Small Maximum Internal Memory
Across all the computers of a similar age and type to the K31AD the maximum internal memory range from 2GB to 260GB, and the average maximum internal memory is 33GB. The Asus K31AD has a fairly small maximum internal memory (only 16 gigabytes) compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were released around the same time as the K31AD.
Only One PCI Express X1 Slot
Most medium processor core personal computers that came out more than a year ago have between one and two PCI Express x1 slots, including the Asus K31AD which has one PCI Express x1 slot.
Quite Small Processor Cache
The smallest processor cache of comparable spec personal computers that were released more than a year ago is 2MB, the biggest is 10MB, and the average processor cache is 6.6MB. With a processor cache of only 6 megabytes, the Asus K31AD has a quite small processor cache compared to most of the other personal computers of a comparable type and age to the K31AD.
Only Four Processor Threads
Most computers of this age and type have between four and seven processor threads, including the Asus K31AD which has four processor threads.
Quite Slow Memory Clock Speed
The Asus K31AD has a quite slow memory clock speed (only 1,600 megahertz) compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been available for more than a year. Comparable spec PCs that are a similar age to the K31AD have memory clock speeds of between 1,000MHz and 2,400MHz, and the average memory clock speed is 1,800MHz.
4 Other reasons to consider the Asus K31AD
Released Over a Year Ago
This medium processor core desktop computer has been on the market for over a year.
Average Processor Clock Speed
The Asus K31AD has a pretty typical processor clock speed (3.2 gigahertz) compared to most of the other comparable spec personal computers that were launched more than a year ago.
If you are looking for a computer with a faster processor clock speed then you might want to look at the ThinkCentre M73 SFF (3.3GHz), or the P310 (£759.60) (3.3GHz) both from Lenovo or the HP Z240 (£996.00) (3.3GHz).
Average Total Storage Capacity
At 1,000 gigabyte, the Asus K31AD has a fairly standard total storage capacity compared to most of the other personal computers of a comparable spec and age to the K31AD.
It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 1TB total storage capacity desktop computers currently available including the DELL PowerEdge T20 (£319.80) which has better reviews.
+2 Other reasons
Average Internal Memory
At 6 gigabytes, the Asus K31AD has a relatively average internal memory compared to most of the other personal computers of a similar age and type to the K31AD.
If this desktop computer internal memory is too small for you then you might also want to consider the HP 800 G2 (£1,099.58) (8GB) which is also higher rated.
