Acer Launches the new Predator Orion 7000



Acer has announced the expansion of its Predator gaming portfolio with new Predator Orion 7000 series desktops, featuring powerful performance in a stunning design, and two smart 4K gaming projectors. Further enhancing the gaming experience is the Predator gaming desk, which offers two practical surface options and a convenient storage rack.

“Predator Orion 7000-series desktops are premium, powerful rigs for serious players who demand incredible performance from even the most demanding titles,” said Jeff Lee, General Manager, Stationary Computing, IT Product Business, Acer Inc. “In order to offer that next-level performance, we’re excited to be among the first companies bringing the new 12th Gen Intel Core CPUs to our product portfolio.”

“12th Gen Intel Core desktop processors are a huge innovative leap forward for game performance and industry-leading memory, I/O and connectivity,” said Marcus Kennedy, General Manager of Gaming and Esports, Intel. “Powering the pinnacle of its performance is the new performance hybrid architecture that combines two all-new compute cores to deliver blistering performance for high frame rates and multi-tasking performance that modern gamers expect.”

Predator Orion 7000
The powerful new Predator Orion 7000 series (PO7-640) gaming desktops provide users with everything necessary to take on the latest generation games—and the next. Designed for hard-core gaming enthusiasts, these new upgradeable gaming PCs will be equipped with the latest 12th Gen Intel Core overclockable processors, up to NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 series GPUs[], and up to 64 GB DDR5-4000 RAM.

The stunning, EMI-compliant chassis features transparent, tempered glass side panels showcasing two 140 mm (5.5-inch) Predator FrostBlade 2.0 front fans and a third 120 mm (4.7-inch) Predator FrostBlade 2.0 rear fan that can be lit with a dazzling array of ARGB colors. The top of the Orion 7000’s case features an opening, making it possible for users to replace this 120 mm (4.7-inch) fan with a 240 mm (9.45-inch) one, while integrated PredatorSense software lets gamers control the ARBG lighting, fan speed and overclocking. Accenting the bold lighting and design are an illuminated teal blue Predator logo on the chassis’ front and an easily accessible teal prism-refraction power button on the system’s top.

Beyond these eye-catching aesthetics is exceptional thermal management, with the three aforementioned Predator FrostBlade 2.0 fans in addition to an AIO liquid CPU cooler and advanced airflow management to effectively cool system components. The FrostBlade fan’s thin and curved blades are designed to smoothly increase airflow without causing turbulence and to quickly dissipate heat. In addition, the fan’s wear-resistant and fully-sealed rifle bearings prevent lubricant leaks and the ingress of dust in order to maintain stability and extend the computer’s lifespan.

Intel Killer 2.5G LAN gives gamers a competitive edge by detecting and prioritizing game traffic over other network traffic, resulting in smoother and faster connectivity for online games and streaming media. Intel WiFi 6E (AX211) and 2×2 MU-MIMO technology provide fast and secure wireless connectivity. A gaming beast, the Predator Orion 7000 provides plenty of ports for leveraging the latest gaming accessories. On the chassis’ front for quick access are three USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type A, one USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type C, and two audio jacks. On the back, there are three USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A, one USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 Type-C, two USB 2.0 ports, and three audio jacks.

Featuring ample storage, the rig includes a 2.5-inch USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-C hotswap drive bay, 2x M.2 PCIe 4.0 NVIMe SSDs (up to 1 TB each) and two 3.5-inch SATA3 HDD (up to 3 TB each).

Predator GD711 and Predator GM712 Gaming Projectors
The Predator GD711 is a smart 4K LED gaming projector that is compatible with both console and PC gaming systems. The projector also features a built-in app market that offers users access to a variety of streaming services. The Predator GD711 features a wide color gamut that amounts to 125% the area ratio of Rec. 709, covering most of the color space within the gamut in addition to a significant area outside of it to offer gamers impressive levels of color saturation. 4,000 LED lumens of brightness, high dynamic contrast, and HDR10 performance ensure that content looks brilliant.

The projector includes several modes that users can shift between depending on their mood. Standard mode offers 4K (3840 x 2160) resolution for enjoying movies and videos in sharp detail, while two game modes—one for bright scenes, another for dark ones—let users pick frame settings optimized for the aesthetics of the game they’re playing. The Predator GD711 projects images with a variable refresh rate mode of 1080p@120 Hz for consoles or up to a blazing fast 1080p@240 Hz for PCs, delivering buttery smooth performance even in the busiest of scenes. Furthermore, projecting at just 23 dBa when in ECO mode, this game-ready home theater won’t break your immersion, either.

The Predator GD711 features a throw ratio of 1.22, which means it supports a wide range of throw sizes. Acer’s recommendation is a 100-inch screen thrown from just 2.70 m (8.85 ft). It also comes with the convenience of a 10W speaker and remote control that has an antimicrobial coating on its surface and buttons. Excellent airflow dissipates heat, helping to deliver a long 30,000-hour lifespan. Connectivity options include two HDMI 2.0 ports for PCs and consoles, audio out for an extra speaker and three USB Type-A ports: One for the projector’s hidden wireless dongle, another for connecting wireless accessories, and another for DC 5V-out that also enables users to update the device’s firmware.

For users who prefer lamp-based projectors, the Predator GM712 is also available with 4K resolution and 3,600 ANSI lumens of brightness.

Predator Gaming Desk
The large 55-inch Predator gaming desk (PGD110) provides ample room for a gaming system, monitor, accessories, and more. Gamers can choose from two surfaces: one coated in easy-to-clean, stylish carbon fiber or another covered with a custom-designed Predator mouse pad. Outfitted with ample storage space, the Predator gaming desk comes with a rack for storing gamepads and/or cartridges, a headphone hook, a cup holder, and a tray tucked in the back for AC adapters. It also has the convenience of a headset cradle to save desk space, a cup holder to prevent spills, and a cable management cutout on each side of the desk to keep cables organized and out of the way. The desk is sturdy with the ability to hold up to 120 kg (264 lbs).

The LIVA Z3 and Z3E are super mini PCs that are passively cooled entirely without fans. At just 0.48 liters in size, and sipping only a maximum 6W TDP of CPU power, this ultra-efficient mini PC features Intel Jasper Lake Pentium Silver N6000 and Celeron N5100/N4500 processors with Intel Graphics and media acceleration built-in.

A silent fanless design means that even in a dusty environment, the LIVA Z3 series is more reliable and requires less maintenance compared to other designs.  It provides a cost-effective and low-maintenance solution with easy deployment for digital signage in markets such as smart vending machines, digital displays, digital menus, kiosks, information display systems, and more.

A small design, efficient operation, and powerful capabilities from AMD Ryzen 3/5/7 and Athlon processors with Radeon RX graphics allows the LIVA One A300 to be an extremely flexible device. It is offered as barebones or as a full system integration solution with or without OS preinstalled for a very wide range of potential applications.

Users can outfit the LIVA One A300 with anything from ultra-efficient dual-core Athlon-class APUs to powerful 8-core APUs with advanced Radeon RX graphics that offer great performance for work or play. For business applications, its small size, excellent power efficiency, and class-leading built-in graphics processing benefit smart signage or other visual- and display-centric applications, in addition to edge compute, retail, healthcare, terminals, and gateways.

The ECS E24-M is a stylish all-in-one computer powered by Intel 10th Generation chips which means it has sufficient PC power without losing thin client cost benefits. The ECS E24-M can be upgraded to Intel Core i5 or i7 making it ideal as a graphic design workstation. 

The elegant yet powerful ECS E24-M AiO provides a highly compact and capable system for a wide range of potential applications. At just 23.8 inches in size and wholly self-contained, it’s ideal for the new work from home culture being able to fit into almost any small office space.

Great ergonomics, adjustable tilt and wide viewing angles, plus Full HD resolution means its images are sharp, and there’s plenty of room for viewing multiple documents simultaneously.
