Acer introduced a bunch of new devices now, and among them had been gaming desktop refreshes aplenty. Particularly, Acer announced new Predator Orion 3000 and Orion 9000 gaming desktops, together with a new desktop in the Nitro 50 line. Counted collectively, it looks these new desktops go over a rather huge vary of specifications.
Acer Predator Orion 3000
All those looking for a gaming desktop that does not have the footprint of a entire-sized gaming tower could want to have a look at the refreshed Predator Orion 3000. The components for the Orion 3000 is packed into a mid-sized tower, so even though it is nevertheless heading to have some heft to it, it won’t acquire up as much space as the Laptop gaming behemoths.
Acer suggests that it outfitted the Orion 3000 with a 10th-gen Main i7 processor – trying to keep which a person precisely a secret for now – along with a GeForce RTX 2070 Super. You will be ready to customize the RAM, which can go up to 64GB of 2666MHz DDR4 memory, and the storage, which has choices ranging up to a 1TB NVMe SSD and two SATA 3 HDDs. Like a whole lot of the gaming equipment we’ll see launching in the close to upcoming, the Orion 3000 supports WiFi 6, and of course, there’s even some RGB lighting on the front of the situation that can be tailored with Acer’s application.
Acer Predator Orion 9000
If you are seeking for a step up from the Orion 3000, then the Orion 9000 is most likely it. This device swaps out the Main i7 for a Main i9 Intense and the RTX 2070 Tremendous – a really capable graphics card in its personal appropriate – for a pair of RTX 2080 Ti GPUs arranged in SLI. RAM solutions weren’t stated, but we picture that you can go up to the identical 64GB of RAM that you can in the Orion 3000.
Like the CPU and GPU, storage alternatives choose a action up in this Laptop as very well, with the Orion 9000 supporting up to two 2.5-inch SSDs and 3 3.5-inch SSDs (surprisingly, there is not a point out of the NVMe SSDs that are found in the Orion 3000). The CPU, unsurprisingly, is liquid cooled, although Acer has outfitted the case with a few 4.7-inch Predator Frostblade enthusiasts. The chassis even has a headset cradle, a manage, and wheels, so if that’s any indication, this is not likely to be a affordable rig when it launches.
Acer Nitro 50
The Nitro 50 appears to slot in suitable guiding the Orion 3000 when it arrives to hardware. We’ll nonetheless see a 10th-gen Main i7 at the middle of this rig, only this time it’s paired with an RTX 2060 Super. RAM possibilities at the time again cap out at up to 64GB of DDR4-2666, although storage comprises a 1TB NVMe SSD and two 3TB HDDs – definitely not poor on paper, but without having more specific specifications, it’s challenging to know just how capable some of this hardware is.
Pricing and launch
As anticipated, the new Nitro 50 will come in at the lowest price issue as it begins at $799.99 we’ll see it start in North America in September, EMEA in August, and China in July. The Orion 3000 commences at $999.99 and will be launching at the exact same time and in the exact locations as the Nitro 50.
The Predator Orion 9000, on the other hand, does not have a North American start window just yet, which indicates that it may perhaps not launch on this side of the Atlantic. We’ll see it launch in EMEA in Oct for €2,799 (close to $3,150) and in China in September.
