In this process the ability to add up to 32 gigabytes of RAM DDR4 memory which can be equipped, and end up teaming with graphic section based on Nvidia GeForce 1080 GTX with 8 gigabytes of RAM. The sum of these three elements gives more than enough to ensure high performance even with the most demanding games result.
