Acer launches full product line for creators
At Acer’s 2019 global press conference Next @ Acer, the company announced its new brand of premium desktops, notebook personal computers (PCs) and monitors designed for professional creators.
In New York, United States, Acer unveiled on Thursday a full lineup of new products under its new ConceptD brand, a collection of high-end desktops, notebooks and monitors optimized for today’s professional creators: graphic designers, filmmakers, engineers, architects and developers.
ConceptD 900 and 500 desktops
The ConceptD 900 and 500 are a premium pair of desktops featuring the highest tier NVIDIA graphics processing units (GPUs) and Intel processors capable of producing complex visual effects rendering, 3D modeling and simulations. The high number of cores allow for the duo to multitask “to the extreme” while remaining secure and reliable. Both are equipped with NVIDIA’s Creator Ready Drivers which ensure that creative applications are performing as high as possible no matter which version is being used.
The ConceptD 900 desktop will retail for $19,999 (about P1 million), and the 500 will retail for $1,699 (about P87,700). Both models will be available in North America starting in July, in Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) in June and in China in December.
ConceptD 9, 7, and 5 notebooks
The trio of ConceptD notebooks all feature 4K ultra-high definition (UHD) IPS Pantone Validated displays that make colors as true to life as possible thanks to 100% coverage of the Adobe RGB color gamut, one of the widest digital color ranges to date. Each model is nearly silent thanks to an Acer AeroBlade 3D Fan that makes the laptops as quiet as libraries.
The ConceptD 9, 7 and 5 notebooks will start at $4,999 (about P258,000), $2,299 (about P118,000) and $1,699 (about P87,700), respectively. The 9 will be available in North America, EMEA and China starting in August. The 7 will be available in both North America and in EMEA in July and in China in May. The 5 will be available in North America and China in June and in EMEA in July.
ConceptD CM321K and CP7271K monitors
This pair of Acer monitors produce extremely accurate colors by covering 99% of the Adobe RGB color space. While the 32-inch CM7321K has been optimized for 2D creators, the 27-inch CP7271K is for those who create 3D content.
The ConceptD CM321K monitor will start at $2,999 (about P155,000) and will be available in North America and EMEA in September and China in August. The CP7271K monitor will start at $1,999 (about P103,000) and will be available in North America and EMEA in July and China in June.
ConceptD OJO mixed reality headset
The OJO Mixed Reality Headset has a 4,320 x 2,160 resolution display whose distance from the wearer can be adjusted for optimal viewing. Furthermore, the gap between the eyes can be made wider or narrow to increase comfort and image clarity. It has an integrated sound system and six degrees of freedom personal tracking.
The pricing and release date of the ConceptD OJO Windows Mixed Reality Headset has not yet been announced. CE/NVG
