Few processor core computers produced by Asus have good ratings on average. We also checked the reviews for all personal computers (not just few processor core computers) and found that Asus also has good ratings across its entire range.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This personal computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many desktop computers that were released around the same time as it.
4.3 On-Board Graphics Adapter OpenGL Version
This personal computer supports a 4.3 on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version, which is the most frequently supported on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version on desktop computers of this type and age.
Four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
Most PCs of a similar age and type to the VC62B have between one and seven USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports, including the Asus VC62B which has four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most commonly found processor cache level on desktop computers that have been available for more than a year.
DDR3L-SDRAM Internal Memory Type
The Asus VC62B has a newer internal memory type than most desktop computers of this age and type. This desktop computer has a DDR3L-SDRAM internal memory type, whereas most personal computers of a similar spec and age to it have a DDR3-SDRAM internal memory type. The internal memory type of all similar spec computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the VC62B ranges from DDR3-SDRAM (worst) to DDR4-SDRAM (best).
+6 More reasons for
Supports Four Compatible Memory Cards
The Asus VC62B has a greater number of compatible memory card than most PCs of this spec and age. This personal computer supports an SD compatible memory card, which is the most commonly supported compatible memory card supported by computers that have been available for more than a year. The compatible memory cards "MMC", "SDHC" and "SDXC" are also supported by this desktop computer.
Four USB 3.0 Ports
The Asus VC62B is a four USB 3.0 port computer.
Four Processor Threads
The Asus VC62B is a four processor thread computer. Most of the other PCs of this age and spec only have between two and three processor threads.
Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the Asus VC62B is more than most computers that have been around for around the same time as it. The most frequently found memory slot is 2x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this personal computer. The memory slots 2x SO-DIMM are also found on this computer.
The average weight of comparable spec PCs that came out more than a year ago is 4.3kg. With a weight of only 1.1 kilograms, the Asus VC62B is one of the lighter comparable spec personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the VC62B amongst personal computers of this age.
6 Reasons Against
Quite Small Max Internal Memory Supported Processor
The Asus VC62B has a fairly small max internal memory supported processor (only 16 gigabytes) compared to most of the other few processor core computers that have been available for a comparable time to the VC62B. Few processor core computers that were released one year ago have max internal memory supported processors of between 4GB and 64GB, and the average max internal memory supported processor is 27GB.
Very Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency
The slowest on-board graphics adapter base frequency of few processor core computers that have been available for a similar time to the VC62B is 100MHz, the fastest is 690MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter base frequency is 300MHz. At only 200 megahertz, the Asus VC62B has a fairly slow on-board graphics adapter base frequency compared to most of the other similar spec computers that have been available for a comparable time to the VC62B.
Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
At only 1,000 megahertz, the Asus VC62B has a quite slow on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other PCs of this age and spec. PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the VC62B have on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies of between 750MHz and 1,200MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency is 1,100MHz.
Very Slow Processor Clock Speed
The Asus VC62B has a fairly slow processor clock speed (only 1.7 gigahertz) compared to most of the other computers of this age and spec. Across all the personal computers of a similar type and age to the VC62B the processor clock speeds range from 0.8GHz to 3.9GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 2.8GHz.
PCs with a faster processor clock speed that might be worth looking at include the Asus GR8 (2GHz and higher rated), or the HP Pavilion Mini 300 (2.2GHz and higher rated).
+3 More reasons against
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this personal computer is HDD, which is the most commonly found storage medium on few processor core computers that were launched 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 desktop computer to all the other HDD computers and we think because of it's better review score, the Asus VM62N, and the Zotac ID91 Plus is also worth considering.
Computers with a faster storage speed that might be worth looking at include the Chromebox (SSD), the CN60 (SSD), or the GR8 (SSD) all from Asus which also has a higher rating.
Only Two USB 2.0 Ports
The Asus VC62B is a two USB 2.0 port computer.
