Acer places itself at the centre of the gaming world
Among a range of products launched at its IFA press conference on Wednesday – including powerful PCs, a 35-inch curved screen, and a range of gaming accessories – made it clear that gaming is where Acer sees clear growth potential in the marketplace.
Designed to “intimidate enemies and inspire game play”, the Acer Predator Orion 9000 gaming desktop was described by conference presenter, Acer CEO Jason Chen, as “a gamer’s dream come true”. With its black-and-silver spacecraft- like exterior with customisable RGB lighting along parts of the exterior, it is clear that the appearance of the suitcase-sized hub is an important element of its design. A massive side window panel showcases the striking interior with a design that keeps electromagnetic interference (EMI) levels in check despite the size of the opening. Optional fans with customisable RGB lighting create a virtual light show, enhancing the striking sci- design.
The Acer Predator Orion 9000 is described as “an extreme platform for gaming and content creation” – or, according to Jeff Lee, General Manager, Stationary Computing, IT Products Business, Acer, “the most powerful PC we’ve ever made. With 4-way graphics and 18-core processors, it is a platform that takes gamers and intense graphic users beyond their dreams.”
Headsets today are a crucial element of the gamer’s armoury and The Predator Galea 500 gaming headset, unveiled at Wednesday’s press conference, makes the claim of being able to “put you right inside the game, giving you the ability to hear and not just see the exact location of elements within the game”.
Acer TrueHarmony 3D Soundscape technology recreates the acoustic space based on the orientation of the player’s head, convincing the brain that sound is coming from a xed direction. Delivering “clear highs with resounding lows”, gamers can select from a choice of sound modes including EQ Music, Movie and Sport.
