Asus ROG G20CI review

 

A compact gaming PC

Small ; Nice design ; Good performance ; Good range of ports

Noisy ; Struggles to keep cool ; Difficult to upgrade ; Expensive ; Needs two power supplies

The Asus ROG G20CI is an impressively small, powerful and lovely-looking gaming PC. Unfortunately, a few too many compromises have been made to achieve the compact design.

Solid 1080p and 1440p speeds ; Modest noise output ; Dramatic, illuminated case

Some rivals significantly faster ; Inconsistent, slow SSD ; Poor peripherals ; Expensive
