PCs of a comparable spec and age to the K31AD have total storage capacitys of between 4GB and 3.6TB. At 2,000 gigabytes, the Asus K31AD has a quite big total storage capacity compared to most of the other similar spec computers that were released one year ago.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Internal Memory

The internal memorys of medium processor cores computers that have been around for a comparable time to the K31AD range from 2GB to 32GB. The Asus K31AD has one of the bigger internal memorys (12 gigabytes) amongst comparable spec desktop computers of this age.

Chart Edit

3 PCI Express Slots Version

This PC supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most commonly supported PCI Express slots version on comparable spec desktop computers that have been around for a similar time to it.

Chart Edit

7.1 Audio Output Channels

The Asus K31AD has a 7.1 audio output channels which is better than the 5.1 audio output channels found on most medium processor cores computers that have been around for more than a year. The best audio output of all computers of this type and age is 8.1 and the worst is 5.1.

Chart Edit

DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type

The optical drive type of this computer is DVD Super Multi, which is typical of many PCs of a similar spec and age to it.

7 Reasons Against

Quite Slow Memory Bandwidth Supported by Processor (max)

The slowest memory bandwidth supported by processor (max) of medium processor cores computers that have been available for around the same time as the K31AD is 10GB/s and the fastest is 68GB/s. At only 25.6 gigabytes per second, the Asus K31AD has a fairly slow memory bandwidth supported by processor (max) compared to most of the other medium processor cores computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the K31AD.

Chart Edit

Only 4 On-Board Graphics Adapter OpenGL Version

The Asus K31AD supports a better on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version than most medium processor cores computers that are a similar age to it. This desktop computer supports a 4 on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version, whereas most similar spec desktop computers that have been available for around the same time as it support a 4.4 on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version.

A 4 on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version is in fact the worst supported on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version across all personal computers of this type and age.

The best supported on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version across comparable types of personal computer is 4.4.

Chart Edit

Only Has One Memory Slots

The number of memory slots found on the Asus K31AD is more than most similar spec computers that are a comparable age to it. The most frequently found memory slots is 4x DIMM, but this memory slots is not found on this desktop computer. The memory slotss 2x DIMM are also found on this PC.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Memory Clock Speed

The Asus K31AD has one of the slower memory clock speeds (only 1,600 megahertz) amongst personal computers of this age. Medium processor cores computers that were launched more than a year ago have memory clock speeds of between 1,000MHz and 2,400MHz.

Chart Edit

Very Low System Bus Rate

Across all the medium processor cores computers that have been available for a comparable time to the K31AD the system bus rates range from 5GT/s to 8GT/s. At only 5 Gigatransfers per second, the Asus K31AD has a quite low system bus rate compared to most of the other desktop computers of this age and type.
