ACER were at PAX Australia last month and they have kept the good times rolling, today they have announced that the Predator Orion 9000 and Predator Triton 700 gaming notebook are coming.
“The gaming industry is worth $2.96 billion in Australia, which highlights just how serious and passionate this market is about gaming. With these latest products, we’re looking to give the local market the tools they need to compete with the best around the world,” said Gaba Cheng, Head of Products for Acer Australia and New Zealand. “The Orion 9000 comes with liquid cooling and IceTunnel 2.0 which means that even as we come into those hot and dry summer days, gamers from Australia and New Zealand will be able to remain cool under pressure. While the Triton 700 uses Nvidia Max-Q design, the same design used by NASA as they launch man into space, allows the computer to stay ultrathin, without sacrificing on power. This means that wherever they may be, gamers will always have the ability to remain prepared to play when called upon.”
Designed to intimidate enemies and inspire game play, the commanding aesthetics of the Predator Orion 9000 series feature a black-and-silver spacecraft-like exterior with customisable RGB lighting along the sides of the front bezel. A massive side window panel showcases the striking and powerful interior with a design that keeps electromagnetic interference (EMI) levels in check despite the size of the opening. Fans with LED lighting create a virtual light show for an even more arresting appearance. Outfitted with two handles and wheels covered with a carbon fiber pattern, the new rigs can be easily moved from one location to another. Side panels make component upgrades easy and the top gives users a quick way to switch fans. A front-access headset cradle and cable management help keep the game area tidy.
The Orion 9000 will be in Harvey Norman stores from April.
The Predator Triton 700 houses the high-performance NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1080 (overclockable) GPU and 7th Generation Intel® Core™ processors in a svelte 18.9 mm-thin aluminium chassis, thanks to Acer’s industry-leading AeroBlade™ 3D metal fans that increase airflow by 35 percent[i], yet take up less space within the device. Two NVMe PCIe SSDs[ii] in RAID 0 configuration and up to 32 GB of DDR4 memory helps the system run at peak performance.
The Predator Triton 700 utilises Max-Q, NVIDIA’s innovative approach to designing the world’s thinnest, fastest, and quietest gaming laptops. Max-Q, an integral part of NASA’s mission to launch man into space, is defined as the point at which the aerodynamic stress on a rocket in atmospheric flight is maximised. Thus, the design of the rocket is precision-engineered around Max-Q. NVIDIA has applied a similar philosophy to designing gaming laptops, enabling Acer to build laptops that are thinner with more GPU performance of previous generation products. The Triton 700 will also be Harvey Norman and start from $4999
