Published

on

Acer today launched ConceptD, a new brand of high-end Windows 10 desktops, notebooks, and monitors that are optimized for graphic designers, filmmakers, engineers, architects, developers and other creators. ConceptD enables designers to get immersed in the creative process and build remarkable things.

“The ConceptD product portfolio was conceived to give creators the tools to focus on the creative process and make beautiful things,” said Jerry Kao, Co-COO, Acer Inc. “As the foundation of a full line of creator products, we’ve designed PCs with high-performance processors and graphics that can handle extreme workloads, and put them inside quiet, minimalist designs to inspire creators to unleash their creativity.”

ConceptD high-end desktops and notebooks come in a gorgeous, timeless design, featuring pure-white or matte-black finishes, with amber-colored keyboard backlighting, and a clean and thought-out design aesthetic that lets creative professions focus on the design process.

ConceptD 900
The ConceptD 900 is a high-performance desktop for professionals running multiple complex and demanding applications. Featuring dual Intel Xeon Gold 6148 processors with up to 40 cores, and 80 threads, an NVIDIA Quadro RTX 6000 GPU, and 12 memory slots for a total of up to 192GB1 of ECC memory, it’s perfect for filmmakers, animators, product designers, and architects to get lost in the creative process without worrying about long render times. 

The ConceptD 900 is also ideal for AI and deep learning developers that need outstanding computing and graphics power. Creative professionals can work with more flexibility with up to two onboard M.2 PCIe slots, plus the efficient chassis design holds up to five storage bays with RAID 0/1-capable drives.

Users can expand with extra onboard three PCIe x8 and four PCIe x16 slots. The ConceptD 900 stays cool while running compute-intensive applications such as rendering and video production through a thermal design that uses six cooling fans to draw air in through the triangular patterned front air panel, circulating it throughout the chassis. The ConceptD 900 features a wiry matte-black metal chassis with an amber LED accent on the power button for a sleek professional look appreciated by minimalists.

ConceptD 500
The ConceptD 500 is a powerful desktop for filmmakers, animators, product designers, and creators who want to bring their work to the professional level. It features up to 9th Gen Intel Core processors and GPUs including up to the NVIDIA Quadro RTX 4000 GPUs1 to make workloads and multi-media creation smoother and faster on complex projects so users can focus on the creative process.

Powered by the latest 9th Gen Intel® Core i9-9900K processor with 8 cores, 16 threads and reaching up to 5GHz, creator tools and projects run faster, smoother, and more stably on the ConceptD 500. Its multiple CPU cores achieve high single-core speed while staying cool with low heat output and low power consumption. With GPUs including up to the NVIDIA Quadro RTX 4000 GPUs1, it supports four 5K displays (5120×2880 @ 60Hz) with HDR color, making visual effects, motion graphics, and animation rendering a breeze.

The ConceptD 500 is an expandable desktop designed to grow with users to meet ever-changing workload requirements. With four DIMM slots for up to 64GB 2666 MHz DDR4 memory, it has more bandwidth and capacity for fast performance when working on complex design tasks. The onboard PCIe M.2 NVMe SSD allows for large models and complex 3D rendering in real time.

Optimal thermal ventilation through three cooling fans draw air in through the triangular front air panel, circulating it throughout the ConceptD 500’s chassis. And yet, at a noise level of 40dB, it is still silent enough to be unobtrusive.

The ConceptD 500’s tower features a white finish and smooth curves for a minimalist-inspired design. The compact tower fits in almost any working space, and the top-side features a woodgrain-inspired pattern. Customers can fast-charge modern Qi-compatible devices wirelessly, and the headset cradle uses a thoughtful push pop-out design that gives the freedom to use and tuck it away when not in use.

ConceptD 9
The ConceptD 9 is a creator notebook in an innovative form factor. Featuring Acer’s CNC-machined Ezel Aero Hinge, the 17.3-inch Ultra HD (3840 x 2160) display flips, extends, or reclines, for multiple usage modes. The display is PANTONE Validated and covers 100 percent of the Adobe RGB color gamut with unparalleled Delta E <1 color accuracy. Users can unleash creativity on any one of the usage modes, including display, Ezel, notebook, and stand modes, for sharing, gaming, working, and drawing.

It features a Wacom EMR stylus that magnetically attaches to the ConceptD 9, to create an authentic writing and sketching experience. The stylus delivers unsurpassed usability and fast, accurate control with 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity, so creators can design from scratch, take notes, or highlight key areas during concept discussions.

Featuring up to an all new 9th Gen Intel Core i9 mobile processor, the ConceptD 9 has the power and performance to smoothly run multiple creator tools simultaneously. With NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 graphics, users can accelerate real time video editing or 3D rendering applications, leaving more time to create. It also delivers accelerated ray tracing so renderers can review lifelike graphics as they are created.

The GeForce RTX GPU lets users save time and focus on creativity by accelerating AI features to boost quality and handle tedious time-consuming tasks. Creators can work natively with up to 8K RAW files on the video timeline without dropping frames, pre-caching, or generating proxies. RTX graphics also bring fluid interactivity with large 3D models from the 50 percent performance improvement in raster performance over previous-generation GPUs.

ConceptD 7
Featuring up to a new 9th Gen Intel Core i7 processor for premium notebook performance and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 graphics with Max-Q Design, the ConceptD 7 lets creators accelerate up to real-time 6K RED video editing and rendering performance on heavy workflows. It’s easy to carry around, at just 17.9 mm (0.70 inches) thin, and weighing just 2.1 kg (4.63 lbs.). The 15.6- inch UHD (3840 x 2160) 4K IPS, PANTONE Validated display is built for creators, with a wide color gamut of 100 percent of the Adobe RGB color space, and a color accuracy of Delta E <2 for remarkable color precision.

ConceptD 5
Graphic design is quick and easy on the ConceptD 5 laptop. Users can fine-tune images with professional precision and complete the trickiest 2D graphic design projects in no time with its powerful 8thGen Intel Core i7 processor with Radeon RX Vega M GL graphics. It’s slim and light, with a modern design that looks great in any workplace, or for working on the go. It features a premium metal chassis with a magnesium-aluminum alloy on top and a palm rest area and a magnesium-lithium alloy on the bottom. Weighing just 1.5 kg (3.30 lbs.), and measuring 16.9 mm thin (0.67 inches), it has a 6.22 mm (0.24 inches) narrow bezel with an 80 percent screen-to-body ratio.

For creators, color accuracy is critical for design, and the ConceptD 5 doesn’t disappoint with its 4K UHD PANTONE Validated display. The narrow 6.2 mm bezels give creators more screen to work with and a 100 percent Adobe RGB color gamut and color accuracy of Delta E <2 to ensure faithful color reproduction.

ConceptD Monitors
Creators need color accuracy beyond what most mainstream monitors can offer, and thus Acer created ConceptD UHD monitors. Featuring a remarkable color accuracy of Delta E <1 and a modern slick, black finish with a wood-patterned base, these new PANTONE Validated monitors are optimized so creators can do more.

The ConceptD CM7321K is a 32-inch monitor ideal for 2D creators.

Designed to deliver a cinematic audiovisual experience, Zenbook 14 OLED features an expansive 16:10 2.8K 90Hz OLED NanoEdge 550-nit PANTONE Validated 90Hz display with a cinema-grade 100% DCI-P3 gamut.

Despite its compact size — a mere 16.9 mm thin and 1.39 kg light — the all-aluminium Zenbook 14 OLED includes a full set of I/O ports, including two Thunderbolt™ 4 USB-C ports, an HDMI 2.0 port, a USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A port, a microSD card reader and an audio combo jack.

The Zenbook 14 OLED offers users an enhanced audiovisual experience, with an expansive 16:10 2.8K OLED NanoEdge 600-nit 90Hz touchscreen that delivers incredibly detailed visuals with ultra-vivid colours. The NanoEdge design has ultra-slim bezels and a 90% screen-to-body ratio, which in turn gives Zenbook 14 OLED a svelte and compact form factor. For superb colour accuracy, the display is PANTONE Validated, and the DisplayHDR True Black 500 certification means it displays the deepest possible blacks. It also cares for eyes during long screen sessions, with low blue-light levels that are certified by both SGS and TÜV Rheinland.

Immersive audio is delivered by the powerful and crystal-clear Harman Kardon-certified Dolby Atmos stereo sound system, which uses a smart amplifier that uses special algorithms to boost loudness levels by up to 350% without distortion. Dolby Atmos delivers a new spatial sound experience for all types of audio, for breathtaking realism in music, movies and videos.

Communications and audio I/O are taken care of by the convenient audio combo jack.

Zenbook 14 OLED introduces a breathtaking new interpretation of the signature Zenbook design that’s timelessly elegant yet totally modern. The bold new lid design is based around our new monogram ‘A’ logo — first seen in the 30th Anniversary Edition Zenbook — that’s delicately carved in shining metal to produce a pattern inspired by Japanese Kintsugi craftsmanship. An echo of the iconic spun-metal Zenbook finish, with its Zen-inspired concentric circles — can be seen on the end caps of the hinges. Zenbook 14 OLED is available in two fresh new colours: Ponder Blue and Aqua Celadon.

Giving users the best experiences is something we really care about. That’s why Zenbook 14 OLED is packed with thoughtful design features, such as the 180° ErgoLift hinge that makes it easy to share and collaborate, ASUS NumberPad 2.0 for easy data entry, and a fingerprint sensor on the power button for single-touch login with Windows Hello.
