This PC supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most commonly supported processor operating mode on few processor core PCs that have been around for more than a year.
Four SATA Connectorss
The Asus VC62B is a four SATA connector desktop computer. Most of the other similar spec personal computers that are a comparable age to the VC62B only have between two and three SATA connectorss.
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 similar spec personal computers that are a comparable age to it.
Asus Has Good PC Reviews
Based on 310 expert and user reviews, Asus has good ratings for its PCs. Asus also has good ratings specifically within its few processor core PCs range compared to other brands.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most frequently found processor cache level on comparable spec computers that are a similar age to it.
DDR3L-SDRAM Internal Memory Type
The Asus VC62B has a DDR3L-SDRAM internal memory type which is newer than most computers of a similar type and age to it. Most comparable spec desktop computers that were launched around the same time as it have a DDR3-SDRAM internal memory type.
A DDR3L-SDRAM internal memory type is actually the best internal memory type across all PCs of a similar age and spec to the VC62B.
The worst internal memory type amongst similar types of desktop computer is LPDDR3-SDRAM.
+3 More reasons for
Has One Memory Slot
The Asus VC62B has a greater number of memory slots than most few processor core PCs that are a similar age to it. The most commonly found memory slot is 2x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this Asus PC. The memory slots 2x SO-DIMM are also found on this personal computer.
The average weight of few processor core PCs that have been around for around the same time as the VC62B is 4.7kg, and the weights range from 140g to 16kg. The Asus VC62B is quite light (only 1.1 kilograms) compared to most of the other computers of this age and type.
8 Reasons Against
Quite Small Max Internal Memory Supported Processor
Across all the similar spec personal computers that have been available for a comparable time to the VC62B the max internal memory supported processors range from 4GB to 64GB, and the average max internal memory supported processor is 27GB. The Asus VC62B has a quite small max internal memory supported processor (only 16 gigabytes) compared to most of the other PCs that have been on the market for a comparable time to the VC62B.
Very Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency
Across all the computers of this age and type the on-board graphics adapter base frequencies range from 100MHz to 740MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter base frequency is 310MHz. With an on-board graphics adapter base frequency of only 200 megahertz, the Asus VC62B has a quite slow on-board graphics adapter base frequency compared to most of the other PCs of this type and age.
Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
The average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of few processor core PCs that are a comparable age to the VC62B is 1,100MHz, and the on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies range from 750MHz to 1,200MHz. The Asus VC62B has one of the slower on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies (only 1,000 megahertz) amongst similar spec desktop computers of this age.
Very Slow Processor Clock Speed
The Asus VC62B has one of the slower processor clock speeds (only 1.9 gigahertz) amongst few processor core PCs of this age. The slowest processor clock speed of similar spec computers that were launched around the same time as the VC62B is 1GHz and the fastest is 3.9GHz.
Other 1.9GHz processor clock speed PCs currently available that you might want to look at include the Asus UN62 ($228.21) which is cheaper.
If this Asus desktop computer processor clock speed is too slow for you then you might want to look at the DELL OptiPlex 7010 (3.4GHz) which is also cheaper.
+5 More reasons against
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this computer is HDD, which is typical of many few processor core PCs that have been around 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.
We compared this computer to all the other HDD PCs and we think because of it's better review score, the DELL OptiPlex 7020, and the HP 260 G1 mini is also worth considering.
If the storage speed of this desktop computer is not fast enough for you then you might want to look at the VM42 (SSD), or the Chromebox (SSD) both from Asus which is also cheaper.
Very Small Maximum Internal Memory
The Asus VC62B has a quite small maximum internal memory (only 16,384 megabytes) compared to most of the other few processor core PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the VC62B. The maximum internal memory of computers that are a comparable age to the VC62B range from 8.1GB to 33GB, and the average maximum internal memory is 28GB.
Only Supports Four Compatible Memory Cards
The number of compatible memory card supported by the Asus VC62B is more than most comparable spec personal computers that are a similar age to it. This desktop computer supports an SD compatible memory card, which is the most commonly supported compatible memory card supported by personal computers of a similar age and spec to the VC62B. The compatible memory cards "MMC", "SDHC" and "SDXC" are also supported by this Asus PC.
Only Two USB 2.0 Ports
Most few processor core PCs that came out around the same time as the VC62B have between one and nine USB 2.0 ports, including the Asus VC62B which has two USB 2.0 ports.
