Expert review by : David Ludlow (



The PC is the greatest gaming platform on earth, but the size of many such rigs makes them rather inflexible. Not so with the Asus ROG GR8 II, since this little PC is console-sized and will be as at home under a TV as it is connected to a monitor. A...

A well-built and attractive compact gaming PC, but its mechanical hard disk is a little disappointing.

Asus ROG GR8 II Mini Gaming PC Review - FunkyKit


Thanks to Asus, we'll be taking a look at their console-inspired ROG GR8 II Mini Gaming PC. The ROG GR8 II is new successor to their original GR8, which is already discontinued. This new compact mini gaming PC is now powered by an Intel Core i7-7700...

Compact and sleek design ; Powerful 4 core/8 thread Core i7-7700 processor ; GeForce GTX 1060 ; Aura Sync and SupremeFX audio ; Built-in AC wifi ; VR-ready

Nothing I can think of really ; Could improve on the graphics card department

Congrats to Asus for producing a mini gaming PC that not only looks great, also performs just as well. The 4-liter size ROG GR8 II is compact and sleek, and it comes with an eye-catching two-tone design. I especially like the Aura RGB lighting effects...

Asus GR8 II Mini Gaming PC (i5-7400, GTX 1060, Aura Sync)


Are you in the market for a uniquely designed, compact, small form factor PC with enough power to dr In the market for a 1080p console replacement? Then the Asus GR8 II Mini Gaming PC might just tick all the boxes.

Small form Factor.

It can get loud under heavy extended load.

The Asus GR8 II Mini Gaming PC is a good looking small form factor PC that specifically targets a niche audience. It is a very capable 1080p gaming system.

Asus ROG GR8 review


The Asus ROG GR8 is a small-factor gaming PC that looks set to get a Steam Machine version in the future, but by taking a page from Alienware's book, Asus has launched it without a console-style UI to try and sway you to grab this tiny little gaming...

The Asus ROG GR8 at first glance doesn't look like much. Measuring up at just 2.3 inches wide and 9.3 inches in height, the Windows 8.1 machine packs in plenty of power that you'd expect to see in full-sized desktop PCs, and not in an odd...

Asus offers an optional keyboard and mouse to get started with the ROG GR8, but those are wired accessories - odd as the machine is designed to sit under your TV, rather than living on your desk

The tiny Asus ROG GR8 is a decent gaming machine that takes up hardly any space and looks at home under your TV. It can keep up with today's modern titles and barely kicks up any noise, but its hefty pricetag and lack of upgradability means it might be...

Asus ROG GR8 II Mini Gaming PC Review Tim Schiesser


The GR8 II is designed for those who want a compact gaming system for a desk or living room, but would rather something more powerful than an Xbox One or PlayStation 4. This system is similar in size to current-generation consoles, however its use of...

Decent hardware and performance for the price. Well suited to 1080p gaming at very high quality presets. Small chassis is only marginally larger than modern consoles.

Neither the CPU nor GPU are upgradeable. Loud under load. Ugly design with way too much ‘gamer style’.

Silky smooth gameplay, some of my library that my previous PC struggled with run brilliant on this.

Some bloatware pre-installed but not too much of a hassle to remove.
