Asus announces ROG GR8S Steam machine


It seems that the distance between a gaming PC and a gaming console increasingly shorter.  Apparently, with the announcement of the Asus ROG GR8S, there is no distance between two platforms. The machine is working like gaming console such as Microsoft’s Xbox One but has an Asus’s signature and ROG product design.

You can also build this Steam machine with Intel Core i5 or Core i7 processors and select from 4GB of DDR3 RAM and up to 16GB. Asus also let you select GeForce GTX 900 graphics card that based on the Maxwell architecture as an option, or 500GB / 1TB hard drive as well as 128GB and up to 512GB of solid state drive.

The Asus ROG GR8S features a lot of connectivity such as two USB 2.0 ports, four USB 3.0 ports, 1 x HDMI 2.0, 1 x DisplayPort 1.2, 1 x Gigabit Ethernet, Audio ports as well as Wi-Fi 802.11 ac.

So, what do you think about the gaming console like this and your desktop gaming PC ? Is there any difference between them or just about software ?
