Moreover, the price of ASUS ROG GR8 II is not yet revealed. The important thing, however, remains a query, which is about the frequency of upgrade in machine hardware. ASUS has not yet said anything about this and it remains a major concern for PC gaming enthusiasts who always upgrade their machine hardware on at least a yearly basis. However, the current specs of the console-sized gaming PC are more than enough to output the graphics at smoother rates and resolution for next 3 years of gaming experience. But still, one will think hard on non-upgrade hardware limitations before buying a console-sized gaming PC.

Previously, at CES 2017 convention, ASUS introduced another console-sized gaming PC called as ASUS VIVOPC: X that was limited to installed hardware but packed with a powerful set of hardware. To know more about it, check out the link above.
