Acer has chosen New York as the setting in which to present its new products for the gaming sector. In a highly competitive sector, Acer wants to stand out above brands. Years of experience in the gaming world provide a certain advantage, but it is their products that will speak for them. Among all the presented highlights his desktop PC, a beast called the Predator Orion 5000.
The Predator Orion 5000 represents the essence of gaming in all its aspects, from its design to its power . Inside we will find the latest in processors and graphics, destined to move any type of game no matter how powerful it is. Acer has not wanted to present the Predator Orion 5000 in society without accompanying it by a wide variety of accessories, we tell you all about the new products designed for the most gamers.
Acer Predator Orion 5000, the power materialized in a gaming desktop
The gaming design is easy to differentiate, its main feature is the inclusion of LED lighting , as well as marked lines that give an aggressive appearance. When we see him we can think that at any moment he will take human form and proclaim himself a follower of Optimus Prime. On its front we find several grilles and transparencies in addition to the RGB LED lighting, the user can change the color to their liking, these grilles and transparencies reveal the two front fans in charge of circulating the air.
The logo of the brand is not missing on this front, although in this case it is from the Predator gaming division. Centered and aligned with the on / off button at the top. Here we will also find different quick connection ports: three USB 3.1 ports, a USB Type-C port in addition to the headphone and microphone input. If we go to its sides we will see differences, on the left we will see the innards of the desktop thanks to the window it includes . While on the opposite side we have a metal plate without any type of opening that allows us to see its interior. At the bottom, its design with four legs stands out, where the construction makes them form an obtuse angle that improves air flow in components such as the power supply.
We anticipated that the Predator Orion 5000 carries the latest in components and it is for less. Inside as the nerve center is the Intel Core i9-9900K , a ninth-generation high-performance processor as indicated by the letter “K” in its name. Its 8 cores with up to 16 processes and a base speed of 3.6GHz up to 5.0GHz (via overclook) will allow you to move any program without much effort. It does not come alone, it is accompanied by the Nvidia RTX 2080 that has 8GB of GDDR6 VRAM memory prepared to move ray tracing technology in next-generation games.
The storage capacity of data and RAM will depend on the configuration of the user, but in terms of RAM it supports up to 64GB DDR4 in dual channel. Being a desktop computer, expansion is done by adding SSD or HDD disks. Acer has included an easy-change expansion system for less advanced users, we can change the storage capacity of this computer without much problem and without using tools like screwdrivers. This beast is powerful, Acer knows it and that is why it has included a closed circuit liquid cooling system signed by Cooler Master, it will keep temperatures at bay in the processor . It will be available in June from 2,000 euros.
Acer Predator CC437K P gaming monitor, 43 inches with 4K resolution and 144HZ
A gaming desktop is not complete without peripherals to match. Along with the Acer Predator Orion 5000 computer, a 43-inch gaming monitor has been presented. This monitor has a difficult name to remember, Acer Predator CC437K P, but without a doubt its characteristics are what make it stand out. In the absence of having tried it, it seems like a marvel, its large screen (practically a television) will achieve an immersive experience for the gamer.
This size implies having a high resolution, in particular Acer has decided that this monitor has 3840 x 2160 pixels or that it is 4K for short . Thus, we will not miss any detail when it comes to enjoying our occasional games or, if you are an advanced gamer, daily games. Undoubtedly the data we have given is interesting but the icing on this 1,500 euro cake is the screen refreshment, it is 144Hz . A more than enough rate for any competitive online game.
Other characteristics focused more on the consumption or creation of multimedia content are the image quality certificates. This monitor can reproduce up to 90% of the DCI-P3 color gamut, it also integrates VESA-Certified DisplayHDR 1000 , with which they ensure greater color accuracy, contrast and color depth. The brightness of the panel will be adjusted thanks to a sensor capable of detecting the lighting of the room in which it is. It is a complement to take into account for any desktop.
