Very Big Hard Drive Capacity
At 3,000 gigabytes, the Asus M32AD has a very big hard drive capacity compared to most of the other medium processor cores computers that were launched more than a year ago. The average hard drive capacity of computers that were released one year ago is 920GB.
Very Big Total Storage Capacity
Comparable spec PCs that came out more than a year ago have total storage capacitys of between 4GB and 3.6TB. When compared to other comparable spec PCs that were launched around the same time as the M32AD that we have assessed the total storage capacity of, the Asus M32AD's total storage capacity of 3,000 gigabytes is one of the biggest.
Quite Fast Processor Frequency
With a processor frequency of 3.6 gigahertz, the Asus M32AD has one of the faster processor frequencys amongst computers of this age. Across all the comparable spec PCs that are a similar age to the M32AD the processor frequencys range from 1.3GHz to 4GHz.
Desktop computers with a faster processor frequency that might be worth looking at include the Apple ME253[plb_2942369_price] (3.7GHz).
+10 More reasons for
Quite Big Internal Memory
The average internal memory of personal computers that are a comparable age to the M32AD is 7.7GB. With an internal memory of 16 gigabytes, the Asus M32AD has one of the bigger internal memorys amongst medium processor cores computers of this age.
It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 16GB memory personal computers currently available including the DELL Precision T5810[plb_2506143_price] which has better reviews.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many computers of this type and age.
Quite Fast Processor Boost Frequency
The Asus M32AD has a fairly fast processor boost frequency (4 gigahertz) compared to most of the other similar spec desktop computers that were launched more than a year ago. Medium processor cores computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the M32AD have processor boost frequencys of between 1.8GHz and 4.4GHz.
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This PC has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is typical of many desktop computers of this age and spec.
Eight Processor Threadss
The Asus M32AD is a eight processor threads personal computer.
Fairly Big Processor Cache
With a processor cache of 8 megabytes, the Asus M32AD's processor cache is one of the biggest amongst comparable spec desktop computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the M32AD. The smallest processor cache of computers of this age and spec is 2MB and the biggest is 10MB.
8.1 Audio Output Channels
The Asus M32AD has an 8.1 audio output channels which is better than the 5.1 audio output channels found on most medium processor cores computers that have been on the market for around the same time as it.
An 8.1 audio output channels is in fact the best audio output amongst all computers of a comparable spec and age to the M32AD.
A 5.1 audio output channels is the worst audio output across similar types of personal computer.
Supports One Placement Supported
The Asus M32AD has a greater number of placements than most PCs that have been on the market for a similar time to it. This personal computer supports a Vertical placement supported, which is the most commonly supported placement supported supported by comparable spec desktop computers that have been around for around the same time as the M32AD.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this PC is DVD Super Multi, which is the most commonly found optical drive type on medium processor cores computers that were released more than a year ago.
5 Reasons Against
Only Two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports Quantitys
The Asus M32AD is a two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports quantity computer. Most of the other medium processor cores computers that were released around the same time as the M32AD have between one and seven USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports quantitys.
Only 4 On-Board Graphics Adapter OpenGL Version
The Asus M32AD supports a 4 on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version which is better than the 4.4 on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version supported by most desktop computers of this spec and age.
A 4 on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version is in fact the worst supported on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version across all similar spec computers that were launched around the same time as the M32AD.
Across comparable types of computer the best supported on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version is 4.4.
Only HDD Storage Media
The storage speed of this computer is HDD, which is the most frequently found storage media on medium processor cores computers that have been available for around the same time as 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 11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This PC supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is typical of many desktop computers of a similar age and type to it.
+2 More reasons against
Quite Small Maximum Graphics Adapter Memory
The Asus M32AD has a quite small maximum graphics adapter memory (only 1.7 gigabytes) compared to most of the other medium processor cores computers that have been available for a comparable time to the M32AD. Comparable spec personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the M32AD have maximum graphics adapter memorys of between 1GB and 2.1GB, and the average maximum graphics adapter memory is 1.7GB.
