ASUS GR8 II overview

  • 1Description

The Republic of Gamers GR8 II Mini-Tower Desktop Computer from Asus is designed for users who wish to play freely without having a system taking up too much space. Thanks to its lightweight and compact design, the GR8 II can be a desktop PC, a home entertainment console, or even carried around to LAN parties. Powered by a 3.0 GHz Intel Core i5-7400 Quad-Core processor and 8GB of DDR4 RAM, it can efficiently multitask and quickly access frequently used files and programs. In order to upgrade this system's performance, you can replace the pre-installed RAM modules with higher capacity sticks. For handling the high-quality graphics offered by today's titles, the GR8 II is equipped with a dedicated NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card with 3GB of GDDR5 VRAM. Connect it to your display via HDMI or DisplayPort and you'll be able to play to your heart's content.

For storing your music, photos, videos, games, and more, the GR8II has a 1TB 7200rpm HDD. Should you need more room, you can connect external storage solutions using its multiple USB ports. You can also pair compatible wireless peripherals via Bluetooth 4.0 technology to free up USB ports for other devices. Access the Internet via 802.11ac Wi-Fi or the Gigabit Ethernet LAN jack for a more stable and reliable wired connection. Other integrated features include audio in/out jacks, a USB Type-C port, and a Kensington Lock slot. The operating system installed is Windows 10 Home (64-Bit).

Console-Sized with Desktop-Power
With a console-sized 4-liter design, the Asus GR8 II can be used in any room or even connected to your TV for big-screen entertainment. Moreover, it's small and light enough for you to bring to LAN parties.
Intel 7th Gen Processor & DDR4 RAM
The Asus GR8 II is built with a 7th-generation Kaby Lake Intel Core processor, which delivers an 8% performance boost compared to its previous generation. It also supports DDR4 memory, and together they provide you with the processing power required for multitasking and running demanding games.
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 10-Series Graphics Cards
NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 10-series graphics cards can deliver up to a 40% increase in performance over the previous generation. Not only are they powerful, they can deliver similar performance to their desktop counterparts with a slight performance difference. This changes mobile gaming, allowing you to max out your game's visuals settings so you can enjoy it at its best. Furthermore, 10-series graphics cards are VR ready so plug in your favorite headset for a new computing experience.
Game Cool & Play Silent
A specially-tuned cooling system consisting of copper heat pipes and dual fans expel heat from the system for stable performance that's needed when gaming over long periods.
With RAMCache, you can cache an entire storage device so that your favorite games and apps load faster.
Asus Aura Sync
The Asus GR8 II is compatible with Asus Aura Sync lighting, letting you customize the lighting as you wish. It's also compatible with select peripherals so you can pair all your devices together for a unique lighting experience.
The built-in audio technology on the Asus GR8 II features a 113 dB signal-to-noise ratio on line-in connections for great recording quality. Additionally, a Texas Instruments RC4580 op amplifier boosts audio levels for better clarity.
Sonic Studio II
Sonic Studio II is an audio management program that lets you adjust each and every aspect to your liking. You can also use it for streaming to share exciting moments with friends, family, and fans.
Sonic Radar II
Sonic Radar II gives you the upper-hand in games by providing you with an onscreen overlay, which displays nearby sounds such as gunshots, footsteps, and more. With it, you'll be able to pinpoint your enemy's location and get the drop on them before they do.
GameFirst IV
GameFirst IV technology optimizes your network traffic for faster, lag-free gaming. Its intelligent mode automatically compiles a database of app data to ensure that every game gets the best performance.

Windows 10

Start Menu
After its hiatus in Windows 8, the Start Menu has returned. Utilizing a combination of the traditional menu system and Windows 8's Live Tiles, the improved Start Menu gives you more information at a glance, showing notification information alongside your applications and other pinned items.
Microsoft's digital personal assistant, Cortana can answer your questions with information gleaned from both your device and the internet at large. You can type or even talk with her, if your system has a microphone. Using her Notebook, Cortana keeps track of your needs and wants, and she learns over time to improve her information gathering skills.
Microsoft Edge
After nearly 20 years, Microsoft has finally replaced its Internet Explorer web browser. With Microsoft Edge, users can write directly on web pages and share notes with friends and colleagues. It also improves the online reading experience by adding a distraction-free mode and read-it-later functionality. Edge also has built-in Cortana integration; you can have her help you find a restaurant, make a reservation, and pull up directions without leaving your browser.
Windows Store
For Windows 10, Microsoft has unified the Windows Store. Now, apps for PCs, tablets, and phones will all be accessible from one place. And with support for Universal Apps, one version of an app can work across all your compatible devices automatically.
Windows Continuum
Windows 10 was designed for a variety of screen sizes and input styles, and with its Continuum feature, it automatically adapts to fit your needs. A Windows 10 tablet on its own requires a touch-centric approach, but attaching a mouse and keyboard will shift everything to a more traditional interface. You can even attach an external monitor to your Windows 10 phone for a near-desktop experience. But it's not just the operating system; Windows Universal Apps take advantage of Continuum as well.
Xbox on Windows 10
Gaming is a big focus of Windows 10. Xbox integration allows for PC players to match up against Xbox One players on supported games, and if you have an Xbox One, you can even stream compatible titles to your PC. Native support for recording with the new Game DVR feature makes it easy to capture and share your gameplay. The new DirectX12 takes better advantage of multi-core processors, giving games a performance boost, even on older hardware. Windows 10 also features native support for virtual reality headsets, such as the Oculus Rift.
