Acer announces ConceptD; company’s new line-up of premium laptops designed for creators

The Acer Predator Helios 700, even though being marketed as a gaming "laptop" is more along the lines of a portable desktop. Like the Helios 700, no price or release date has yet been announced. The US$799 Nitro 5 offers a sleek 80 per cent screen-to-body ration with a super thin 7.18mm bezel while the US$999 Nitro 7 is just 19.9mm with a 78 per cent screen-to-body ratio, as well as up to 7 hours of battery life.

Both of the systems will feature a silky smooth 144Hz panel, but the Nitro 7 one-ups its little brother by reducing the latency on its panel to 3 milliseconds. The monitor also comes with DisplayHDR 1000 certification. It is powered by up an 8th generation Intel Core i7 chipset coupled with NVIDIA GeForce GTX graphics. Starting with the latter it has a 4K UHD IPS panel on board, and from what we can tell is created to work best with the aforementioned workstations revealed by Acer. They can be configured with at least a GTX 1050, and come with 16GB of RAM (upgradable to 32GB), a 1TB SSD, and a 2TB HDD. Buyers can also outfit the laptop with up to 64GB of DDR4 RAM, excessive though that may be, while the laptop's 17-inch FHD IPS display runs at 144Hz and boasts a 3ms response time.

Both the Nitro 7 and Nitro 5 feature dual fans, plus Acer CoolBoost™ technology and a dual exhaust port created to keep the Nitro 7 chilled out during extended gaming sessions. This results in up to a 45 percent improvement in airflow. When selecting Auto Mode, Acer's Network Optimizer is able to categorize high-demand programs to dramatically reduce connectivity issues. Gamers will be most excited about the combination of up to the newest 9 Gen Intel Core i7 processors for premium performance of with the addition of the latest of a NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 GPU with Max-Q Design supported by a Turbo key for one-punch overclocking and Killer DoubleShot Pro for fast and lag-free networking. MaxxDialog™ is an intelligent speech booster helping separate game dialog from music and sound effects. But, hey, if you're looking portable PC with a decent display, this might be of interest to you. Users can enjoy a hassle-free solution for high-quality Full HD streaming, share gameplay, and interact with friends and the gaming community thanks to its integrated hardware and software built from the ground up for livestreaming. It delivers a 4Kp60 gaming experience while streaming at 1080p with the capture card's Pass-Through feature. It features a 15.6-inch UHD display.
