ROG TYTAN G30 - Gaming Performance

ASUS provided us with one of their ROG TYTAN G30 Gaming PCs. Since these desktops target gamers, we're going to have a closer look at gaming performance running a set of different game benchmarks. By the end we will be able to tell you how suitable these PCs are for gaming. Since there are three different versions of ROG TYTAN G30 desktops available in Switzerland, we're going to benchmark all three versions on the following pages.
Let's continue with comparing specs of the different versions of the ROG TYTAN G30 gaming desktops that are available here in Switzerland. There are actually three different setups where the graphics card is the one component, that apparently has the biggest impact on performance differences.
In case of desktop PCs it's always interesting to see what it would cost if somebody bought the exact same components as well as software and then assembled the PC himself. We made such a list for the most expensive offer listed above and we found that you would have to pay roughly CHF 2150.- if you were to build and setup the system yourself. In other words ASUS charges about an additional CHF 129.- for building this computer and installing all the software. In our opinion this is definitely fair. ASUS is saying that these PCs are not only suitable for gaming but also for video editing as well as other demanding task. Since all these PCs have been equipped with an Intel Core i7-4770K processor and even the entry level model features 16 Gigabyte of memory, whereas the other come with 32 Gigabyte, this is definitely true. Apart from that there is the decent factory overclocking on the CPU which gives you a little bit extra performance. Basically there is only one thing we would love to see swapped. When it comes to the power supply, there is a model that only features 80Plus Bronze certification. We would appreciate it if there was at least an 80Plus Gold model.
With desktops coming from large manufacturers, customers also have to keep in mind, that the cases might look "cool" from the outside but usually on the inside, there is not too much space, which means ergonomics aren't something to brag about. If you're not one of the users that like swapping hardware himself, which is very likely if you consider buying a desktop PC, then this is no drawback.
