2020 Acer Predator Gaming Chair x OSIM : First Look!

Acer just unveiled the 2020 Predator Gaming Chair x OSIM, designed for professional gamers and eSports enthusiasts!

Let’s take our first look at the new Predator Gaming Chair x OSIM, and its key features and specifications!

 

Predator Gaming Chair x OSIM : Have A Massage While You Game!

The 2020 Acer Predator Gaming Chair x OSIM is an ergonomic gaming chair with built-in OSIM massage features, so you can enjoy a relaxing massage while you game!

OSIM V-Hand Massage Technology

The built-in OSIM V-Hand Massage Technology emulates the agile hands of a professional masseuse on your neck and shoulders.

Together with other massage techniques such as knead, press, roll and tap that cover the entire back, the 2020 Acer Predator Gaming Chair x OSIM gaming chair promises to decrease tension and optimise physical comfort during or after gameplay.

You can use the buttons on the right arm rest to control two sets of rollers that mimic a pair of agile hands tracing the curve of your spine.

Three automatic massage programs (Neck & Shoulders, Lumbar and Energize) are available, designed by a massage expert to target the neck, shoulder and lumbar regions — all common pain points for gamers due to prolonged periods spent sitting.

Adjustable Ergonomics

The 2020 Acer Predator Gaming Chair x OSIM gaming chair is highly adjustable, with a recline of up to 145 degrees.

You can adjust the chair’s rollers to suit six different shoulder positions for different heights, as well as the roller width to massage exactly the right spot, regardless of your body width.

Sporty + Professional Look

The 2020 Acer Predator Gaming Chair x OSIM gaming chair is covered in PVC leather, with a black carbon fibre pattern and metallic dark grey and teal accents.

Built-In Bluetooth Speakers

Acer Predator Helios 700 Gaming Laptop Preview!

Earlier this month, Acer unveiled the Predator Helios 700 gaming laptop, with its unique HyperDrift keyboard.

In this preview, we will share with you its key features, and our hands-on video tour of the Acer Predator Helios 700!

 

Acer Predator Helios 700 : An Introduction

The 2019 Acer Predator Helios 700 is designed to offer the ultimate gaming experience, with a large 17.3-inch IPS display, and the latest Intel Core i9-9980HK processor and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 graphics.

Its display has a Full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, with a 144 Hz refresh rate and support for NVIDIA G-SYNC.

It comes with 32 GB DDR4 memory (upgradable to 64 GB), and two 512 GB PCIe NVMe SSDs in RAID 0 configuration. But you can also add a separate HDD for additional storage.

The Predator Helios 700 boasts a unique HyperDrift keyboard that increases airflow by up to 18.9% through the top of the laptop.

The cooling system features two 4th Gen AeroBlade 3D fans that maximise airflow while minimising noise. Part of it can be seen through the Gorilla Glass panel in the centre.

Pulling out the HyperDrift keyboard also extends a wrist rest, and makes it easier for you to use the keyboard, which incidentally has anti-ghosting capability, and per-key RGB lighting.

The HyperDrift keyboard also improves ergonomics, with a desktop-like feel. In addition, it comes with per-key RGB lighting, anti-ghosting and MagForce WASD keys.

The MagForce keys use analog-like linear switches that trigger actuation on initial press, and increase up to 100% to give players more precise movements in game.

Its large Precision Touchpad is outlined with blue lighting, and features two discrete mouse buttons. Its 17.3-inch IPS display is not only large, it supports a 144 Hz refresh rate and NVIDIA G-SYNC.

The 2019 Predator Helios 700 Adds HyperDrift Keyboard!

Acer just unveiled the 2019 Predator Helios 700 gaming laptop, with a unique HyperDrift keyboard! Here’s a quick primer on the latest iteration of the Acer Predator Helios 700 gaming laptop!

 

The 2019 Predator Helios 700 Adds HyperDrift Keyboard!

HyperDrift Keyboard

The most unique thing about the 2019 Predator Helios 700 is the new HyperDrift keyboard. Designed as part of the new Helios 700’s thermal architecture, it slides forward to uncover two additional air intakes for maximum cooling performance.

Sliding the HyperDrift keyboard forward also improves ergonomics – the keyboard is now closer to the gamer. On top of that – its MagForce keys use linear switches that triggers on the initial press, and increase up to 100 percent for more precise control.

It also has two hotkeys – Turbo to quickly engage overclocking, and PredatorSense to immediately access CPU + GPU temperatures, fan controls, RGB lighting and more.

4th Gen AeroBlade 3D Fans

The new Predator Helios 700 also comes with an improved cooling system. It not only leverages the HyperDrift keyboard for more airflow, it also comes with two 4th Gen AeroBlade 3D fans, five copper heat pipes, and the Acer CoolBoost Technology.

The new 4th Gen AeroBlade 3D fans have new 0.1 mm fan blades with a serrated edge, winglets along the top and bottom, as well as a curved fin along the inner portion of each blade. Acer claims this increases airflow by up to 45%!

The Acer Predator Orion 9000 HEDT Gaming PC Up Close!

At IFA 2017, one of the most exciting products that Acer revealed was the 18-core, quad-GPU behemoth known as the Acer Predator Orion 9000! We had the opportunity recently to take a close look at the Orion 9000, and get updated on its price and specifications.

 

The Acer Predator Orion 9000

The Acer Predator Orion 9000 is a massive HEDT (High-End Desktop) PC that boasts an 18-core processor, and up to four graphics cards. It has a silver-and-black chassis with a spacecraft design and customisable RGB lighting along the sides of the front bezel.

To showcase the powerful hardware inside, it has a massive side window panel with a metal mesh that keeps its electromagnetic interference (EMI) in check. Up to 5 fans can be installed, with customisable RGB lighting to create a virtual light show. The two side panels are also tool-less, allowing for easy upgrades.

Despite its size, Acer made it easy to move – it is outfitted with two handles and wheels covered with a carbon fibre pattern. It also has a headset cradle and cable management to keep everything tidy during and after the move.

Liquid Cooling & IceTunnel 2.0

The Predator Orion 9000 features AIO liquid cooling for the CPU, and Acer IceTunnel 2.0 to keep the temperature down even in the most demanding conditions. IceTunnel 2.0 is an advanced airflow management design that separates the system into several thermal zones, each with an individual “airflow tunnel” to expel heat.

[adrotate group=”2″]

There are huge metal mesh panels on the front and top that allow more cold air in, and the rising hot air of the liquid-cooled CPU out. Up to five 120 mm fans can be installed in the front, top, and back to 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 feature blower-style fans to drive the heat out from the back, while the PSU is self-contained to avoid thermal interference.

Extreme Performance For Gaming & Content Creation

The Acer Predator Orion 9000 is powered by a choice of an 18-core Intel Core i9 Extreme Edition processor, or Intel Core i9 X-Series / Core i7 X-Series processors, with up to 128 GB quad-channel DDR4 memory. It comes with a choice of two NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics cards in SLI, or in some countries, up to four AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 graphics cards!
