Bohs Hansen / 2 years ago
ASUS has launched their newest addition to the gaming scene in form of the Republic of Gamers branded GR8 Gaming Mini-PC. This tiny PC has a volume of just 2.5 liters while packing an Intel Core i7-4510U Haswell processor and a Nvidia GeForce GTX 750 Ti Maxwell graphics card. Asus packed some mighty performance into the form-factor of a gaming console and it comes with Windows 8.1 pre-installed.
It supports up to 16GB DDR3 memory on its two SO-DIMM slots and comes with either a 1 TB 7200 RPM hard disk or a 256 GB solid state drive. For the wireless pleasures it has dual-band 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi. There are plenty of connection options on this gaming PC with two USB 2.0 ports on the front where one of them features extra charging power. There are two 3.5 mm audio jacks for microphone and headphone connections and of course of a power button.
On the rear of the PC we find four USB 3.0 ports for high-speed connections and a RJ45 connector for the Intel Gigabit Ethernet. It has tree 3.5 mm audio jacks on the back for line-in, line-out and microphone as well as a S/PDIF optical out. You can connect up to two monitors to this gaming PC with the built-in HDMI and DisplayPort connections that both support Ultra HD 4K resolution. There’s also a Kensington lock to prevent sticky fingers from running away with your little treasure.
The GR8 Gaming mini-PC is built with easy access to memory and storage for convenience while upgrading or just doing the ordinary maintenance. This isn’t just a tiny form factor PC, it’s also tiny on the power consumption. It comes with a 19Volt DC adapter with 6.32A and 120W power output and the system itself is rated to 0.4 watts when off, 13 watts at idle and 70 to 77 watts when running with full 3D loads.
This wouldn’t be a Republic of Gamers product without a long-range of exclusive features. This Gaming mini-PC features the SupremeFX Audio, Sonic SoundStage, Sonic SenseAmp, Sonic Studio, Sonic Radar II, GameFirst III and can work as Miracast receiver. It also gives you access to 100 GB of Asus HomeCloud storage for 12 months.
The mini-PC is whisper-quiet at just 20dB when idle or low loads and 28dB when running at full capacity. The optional bundle version comes with a ROG Gladius optical gaming mouse and a M801 compact mechanical keyboard. The Asus Republic of Gamers GR8 Gaming Mini-PC will be available this month but there isn’t any word on pricing yet.
