Based on 233 owner and expert reviews, Asus has good reviews for its desktop computers. Asus also has good reviews specifically for its few processor cores computers compared to other manufacturers.
64-Bit Processor Operating Modes
This desktop computer supports a 64-bit processor operating modes, which is typical of many similar spec personal computers that have been around for around the same time as it.
Three Graphics Adapter DisplayPorts Quantitys
The Asus GR8 is a three graphics adapter DisplayPorts quantity computer. Most of the other few processor cores computers that came out around the same time as the GR8 only have between one and two graphics adapter DisplayPorts quantitys.
4.3 On-Board Graphics Adapter OpenGL Version
This personal computer supports a 4.3 on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version, which is typical of many few processor cores computers that have been available for more than a year.
SSD Storage Media
The Asus GR8 has an SSD storage media which is faster than most few processor cores computers that have been around for more than a year. Most computers that have been around for around the same time as 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 actually the best storage speed amongst all personal computers of a comparable age and spec to the GR8.
The worst storage speed amongst similar types of computer is HDD.
Quite Big Internal Memory
When compared to other few processor cores computers that have been available for a comparable time to the GR8 that we have assessed, the internal memory of the Asus GR8 of 8 gigabytes is one of the biggest. The internal memorys of computers of a similar type and age to the GR8 range from 2GB to 16GB.
+5 More reasons for
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is the most commonly found cabling technology on comparable spec PCs that have been around for more than a year.
DDR3L-SDRAM Internal Memory Type
The Asus GR8 has a DDR3L-SDRAM internal memory type which is newer than the DDR3-SDRAM internal memory type found on most computers of a comparable spec and age to it. The best internal memory type of all personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the GR8 is DDR4-SDRAM and the worst is DDR3-SDRAM.
Very Big Processor Cache
With a processor cache of 4 megabytes, the Asus GR8 has one of the biggest processor caches amongst comparable spec PCs of this age. The average processor cache of comparable spec computers that are a similar age to the GR8 is 2.8MB.
Has One Memory Slots
The number of memory slots found on the Asus GR8 is more than most comparable spec desktop computers that are a similar age to it. The most commonly found memory slots is 2x DIMM, but this memory slots is not found on this PC. The memory slotss 2x SO-DIMM are also found on this desktop computer.
6 Reasons Against
Very Small Maximum Internal Memory Supported by Processor
Across all the similar spec desktop computers that have been around for more than a year the maximum internal memory supported by processors range from 4GB to 64GB, and the average maximum internal memory supported by processor is 28GB. The Asus GR8 has a fairly small maximum internal memory supported by processor (only 16 gigabytes) compared to most of the other few processor cores computers that have been around for a similar time to the GR8.
Very Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency
The average on-board graphics adapter base frequency of few processor cores computers that have been available for more than a year is 310MHz. With an on-board graphics adapter base frequency of only 200 megahertz, the Asus GR8 has one of the slower on-board graphics adapter base frequencys amongst few processor cores computers of this age.
Very Small Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory
At only 2 gigabytes, the Asus GR8 has a fairly small discrete graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other comparable spec computers that were launched more than a year ago. Few processor cores computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the GR8 have discrete graphics adapter memorys of between 0.5GB and 2.1TB.
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
The Asus GR8 has one of the smaller total storage capacitys (only 128 gigabytes) amongst PCs of this age. The average total storage capacity of desktop computers that came out more than a year ago is 560GB, and the total storage capacitys range from 8GB to 3TB.
There are a number of other 128GB total storage capacity desktop computers currently available that you might want to consider including because of it's better review score, the Asus D310MT[plb_3149996_price].
+3 More reasons against
Quite Slow Processor Frequency
The slowest processor frequency of comparable spec PCs that have been on the market for a similar time to the GR8 is 0.8GHz and the fastest is 3.9GHz. With a processor frequency of only 2 gigahertz, the Asus GR8 has one of the slower processor frequencys amongst similar spec personal computers of this age.
Only Two USB 2.0 Ports Quantitys
The Asus GR8 is a two USB 2.0 ports quantity personal computer.
