next@Acer 2019 Showcase: New PC Gaming and Creative Products

It’s time to check out 2019’s next@Acer product showcase. Acer, maker of various tiers of PC gaming products, showed off their latest line-up of products today at the Duggal Greenhouse in New York City. Let’s dive into some of our favorite products from what the showcase had to offer!

Acer Predator Helios 700

Let’s start off with the biggest unveiling for us today, the Predator Helios 700 gaming laptop. The Predator Helios 700 stands on top as Acer’s flagship gaming laptop. It is powered by a 9th Gen Intel® Core™ i9 Processor and an overclockable NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 2080 graphics card. It features a 17” 144Hz/ 3ms4 Display with NVIDIA® G-SYNC®, a 5.1 audio system, and Dual 4th Gen AeroBlade 3D Fans. The latest innovation for the Predator Helios 700 resides in its retractable HyperDrift Keyboard with Auto Overclock. The keyboard slides out, allowing for more airflow through the top by exposing the AeroBlade fans, and features MagForce Keys with Linear Switch technology. The MagForce keys are pressure sensitive, allowing you to customize its purposes based on how deeply you press a key.

Acer Predator CG437KP Gaming Monitor

Next up is the gargantuan 43-inch 4K UHD Predator CG437KP Gaming Monitor. This monitor features VESA Certified DisplayHDR™ 1000, to handle HDR content, and houses a 144Hz Refresh rate. The Predator CG437KP is ready for any and all gaming scenarios thanks to its Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) for console games as well as Adaptive-Sync for PC games.

Acer Launches New ConceptD Brand

Acer dazzled with us with more than just powerful and innovative gaming products. We are fans of art and creativity as well, here at RFMag. Therefore, we were intrigued to hear about Acer’s new ConceptD line of products, geared for designers and creative professionals. The goal with this line is high-level processing power coupled with high color accuracy in displays.

Standing at the top of this product line, the ConceptD 900 desktop coupled with the ConceptD CP7 monitor is the best product pair Acer has to offer in the creative realm. The ConceptD 900 workstation houses dual Intel® Xeon® Gold 6148 CPUs and an NVIDIA® Quadro RTX™ 6000 GPU. It also has 12 memory slots, 5 storage bays, and multiple PCIe slots, making the ConceptD 900 ready to expand its capabilities far into the future. The ConceptD CP7 (CP7271K P) is a Delta E <1 / PANTONE validated 4K monitor. Like the Predator CG437KP above, it is also a VESA Certified DisplayHDR™ 1000 display. However, it goes beyond that with a broader color space, displaying 99% of the Adobe RGB color gamut (93% DCI-P3).

Acer also expanded this ConceptD line for creators on-the-go with its ConceptD notebooks. The flagship ConceptD 9 notebook is paired with an integrated Wacom EMR pen and features Ezel Hinges, allowing for easy collaboration on projects. Not to be too far outdone by its desktop counterpart above, the ConceptD 9 houses a 9th Gen Intel® Core™ i9 Processor and NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 2080 Graphics. It too sports a 17-inch PANTONE® Validated 4K UHD Display with 100% Adobe® RGB support. Also using Acer’s own AeroBlade fans, the ConceptD 9 runs with all of this power at less than 40 decibels, allowing for a quiet creative space.

These items were just our favorite picks from the next@Acer event today. There was much more unveiled at the event, so do take a look at the entire lineup from today’s event for yourself, here
