Taiwanese PC major Acer today launched a new gaming desktop “Predator Orion 9000” that features Intel Core i9 Extreme Edition processors with up to 18 cores and 36 threads and up to two NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080Ti graphics cards for an enhanced gaming experience.
The Predator Orion 9000 will offer up to 128GB of DDR4 memory and comes with a huge 2TB hard disk. The Predator Orion 9000 series feature a black-and-silver spacecraft-like exterior with customisable RGB lighting along the sides of the front bezel.
The Predator Orion 9000 series also come with a liquid cooling and equips Acer’s IceTunnel 2.0 to keep the temperature down while the game heats up. IceTunnel 2.0 is an advanced airflow management solution that separates the system into several thermal zones, each with an individual airflow tunnel to expel heat.
Huge metal mesh panels on the front and top allow more cold air in and the rising hot air of the liquid-cooled CPU out, while up to five 120 mm fans in the front, top, and back channel cool air through the chassis. Part of the airflow is redirected towards the back of the motherboard tray to cool the storage devices. The graphic cards also feature blower-style fans to drive the heat out from the back, while the PSU is self-contained to avoid thermal interference.
For connectivity, the desktop includes two USB 3.1 Gen 2 ports (one Type-C and one Type-A), eight USB 3.1 Gen 1 ports (one Type-C and seven Type-A) and two USB 2.0 ports (Type-A). The Predator Orion 9000 overall supports three M.2 slots to extend the ability to increase the speed, power and capabilities of the PC, and four PCIe x16 slots provide ample expansion for video cards.
Priced at Rs 3,19,999, the desktop is available at select Croma and Acer Exclusive stores.
