At the end of the summer, the biggest names in technology manufacturing descended upon Berlin for IFA 2017.
The titans of tech unveiled their latest strides in consumer electronics in front of thousands of fans and influencers but one brand that stood out for all the right reasons was Acer.
Traditionally, Acer has found itself in the middle of the pack as far as manufacturing goes; their products aren’t considered high-end but they aren’t at the lowest tier either.
After Berlin, however, they may have climbed a few rungs of the tech ladder.
Acer unleashed its latest gaming hardware, Predator, which had everyone from gamers to analysts foaming at the mouth for its release.
Here are the five biggest takeaways with the Predator series that still have everyone talking:
Hardcore gamers have long resorted to only having the ability to play from wherever their home base happens to be set up but thanks to Acer’s Predator Triton 7000 gaming laptop, the competition goes where you do. With an Intel Core i7 H-series processor, this 15.6-inch laptop is built for serious use as a multi-purpose machine that’s able to run 4K and VR games as well as the most demanding streaming titles.
Your choice of AMD Radeon RX VEGA or two-way NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080Ti SLI cards makes VR in your own home an actual reality and 8K ultra high-definition resolutions possible.
Keeping It Cool
Keeping 8K games from overheating your machine has been a major issue up until now. The individual components of the Predator Orion 9000 series are cooled separately: The motherboard has its own liquid cooling module while dual fans expel heat generated by the top-of-the-line graphics cards working at full speed.
Rapid Response Initiated
Acer just didn’t make the Predator series to look good it also works fast. The Predator X35 features an ultra-wide curved 35-inch display with a 21:9 aspect ratio capable of 4K gaming which obviously will give you the perfect graphics (along with the cards) but the 200Hz refresh rate and support for NVIDIA G-SYNC means that you will have the edge in response time.
