Computing giant Acer has just released two devices, with a focus on desktops. They have made headlines with their Predator Orion 9000, an impressive yet expensive tower for dedicated gamers. With its hefty price tag comes liquid cooling and a partitioned airflow system, to reduce noise in the system and help the high-end I9 and dual GeForce GTX 1080 TI to run smoothly. Buyers can choose up to a maximum of 128GB of RAM.
The case has been designed to be very easy to transport with its hefty weight, and even easier to change components within. This is made possible by handles and wheels on the case plus a tool-free side window. Acer has their customers covered in terms of ports, with a jaw-dropping total of 12 USB ports. There are two USB 3.1 Gen 2 ports (one each of Type-C and Type-A), eight USB 3.1 ports (one Type-C and seven Type-A), and two USB 2.0 ports. The Orion 9000 will start shipping in February with a starting price of £1472.99 ($1,999). The configuration of this base model is unknown.
Acer’s second product is completely opposite to the Orion 9000 in terms of build and specifications. It is a 15” laptop aimed at “casual gamers”; named Nitro 5. It isn’t the best performing on the market, however, it is able to cope with moderately demanding titles such as Overwatch. It features a Ryzen mobile processor, Radeon RX560 video card, up to 512GB SSD and up to 32GB RAM. In the matter of connections, the laptop comes with USB Type-C, gigabit Ethernet and HDMI 2.0. It will be shipping in April and starts at $799.
