7 Reasons For

Asus Has Good Reviews for Its Computers

Based on 233 user and expert reviews, Asus has good reviews for its PCs. Asus also has good reviews specifically within its few processor cores computers range compared to other manufacturers.

64-Bit Processor Operating Modes

This personal computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating modes, which is typical of many personal computers of a comparable type and age to it.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory

At 16 gigabytes, the Chromebox2 G008U has a fairly big maximum on-board graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other personal computers of this age and spec. Computers that are a similar age to the Chromebox2 G008U have maximum on-board graphics adapter memorys of between 1GB and 16GB.

Chart Edit

4.3 On-Board Graphics Adapter OpenGL Version

This 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 cores computers that have been available for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

SSD Storage Media

The Asus Chromebox2 G008U has an SSD storage media which is faster than most desktop computers of a comparable type and age to it. Most personal computers of a comparable type and age to it have an HDD storage media. 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 computer's storage speed (SSD) is in fact the best storage speed across all comparable spec desktop computers that have been available for a similar time to the Chromebox2 G008U.

The worst storage speed amongst comparable types of computer is HDD.
