IFA 2015. Acer Predator. The range of gaming devices

Today, Acer is best known devices middle and low price segments. When it comes about the laptop, candy bar, a monitor or other equipment with a good price-performance ratio, it is usually, Acer or Asus. However, both companies still have a ruler and gaming products. Until recently, this segment Asus paid a lot more attention, but now, probably, Acer will also be treated to a game theme often. The presentation before the IFA company introduced a number of different devices in a line of Predator, about them and I want to tell you.

A fan of the universe “Transformers” or simply a person who willingly watched the same film (any part of it) and it was pleased to know for sure in a logo similar to the Predator character Decepticons silhouette, but not the point. It is about design. In my opinion, all products of the line Predator he lurid, too bright and flashy. Personally, I do not like it, but in this case, my opinion does not mean anything, because Acer uses only proven over the years the scheme: gamers – many ryushechek, LEDs and all kinds of pieces. I do not know for sure, but apparently it works. Suffice it to recall the product design line gaming Asus – RoG. Why, look at the device from Razer: a keyboard and mouse, headphones. Everywhere you will find a similar design – chopped, sharp edges, different planes, a combination of black and red, black and acid green, black and blue, a plurality of LEDs, various inserts and other similar decisions. But it works like “gamers” (or are they just used?).

Acer Predator 6

A new gaming smartphone Acer – Predator Phone, yet little is known. Built on the latest machine Mediatek Helio X20 platform with a 10-core processor, equipped with 4 GB of RAM and a screen with a diagonal of 6 ”. All other information that you are able to find the net on this model – procto guesses reviewers and users. Even the name of the device may change for release.

Almost certainly not change the design and just about him, as well as the size and the overall ergonomics, you can talk a little. Pro-friendliness – it is six inches, so that the new smartphone may not be very convenient to work with one hand, by definition, but it is not designed for this purpose; the priority here – games. And by the four speakers speaker unit.

Oddly enough, comfortable to hold in landscape orientation with two hands. Bright, deliberately flashy design in case your smartphone is playing into the hands of Acer – remember how often in the form of new smart phones are now much do you think they all look alike? Probably very often. But about 6 Predator that can not be said. What is the front that the rear, the machine is unique in terms of design here is not so important – at the expense of public decisions. In the end, all logic design in this smartphone is subject to common rules of creating products for gamers and reproach in this case the design of Acer too strange appearance of the machine is impossible. This is his positioning and market potential.

No information about the possible cost and timing of the start of sales Acer Predator 6 yet.

Once upon a time in one of the articles about the Acer I did join a very strange name for the company’s products. Since then, much water has flowed, but why another device, the tablet can not be called simply Acer Predator 8? I understand that there is a division in the different markets, different versions, and for many additional indexes more convenient, but it’s all for the people within the company, the press, retailers, distributors, but certainly not buyers, for which the device is done. So I will write Acer Predator 8 – so it sounds better.

The new tablet of the company – the game. By design resembles a smartphone, in general, these two devices look good beside them sustained a single style. Speakers speakers at first glance, a controversial decision, but to keep the plate in a horizontal position by them is just convenient. For speakers have settings profiles, allowing you to select the sound for games, music or movies. Also, settings and profiles are provided for the display – color temperature and other parameters.

In Russia, the device goes on sale, tentatively, in November, the exact cost is not specified, for obvious reasons, is the estimated price – about 25 000 rubles. I find it difficult to evaluate the device with the user’s perspective, like any other, designed for gamers. I do not understand them, despite the fact that I am the gamer with some fifteen years of experience. So I suggest you to evaluate its prospects in the comments, share their opinions and viewpoints.

Acer Predator 17

The top gaming notebook company. Still there is a version with a diagonal of 15 inches, but I want to talk just about 17 ”. Design – a mixture of Alienware, Razer and something else, I guess. Bright, juicy, with sharp edges and transitions with different planes. In appearance the laptop is uniquely defined as a game. And by weight – about 4 kg in the basic configuration.

Features laptops always vary a lot, so to speak only basic. Platform Intel Core i7 new generation (Intel Skylake), up to 64 GB of RAM, nVidia GeForce 970M 3 GB minimum configuration and 256 gigabyte SSD-drive, or different variations, including RAID-array or a hybrid vehicle. Screen resolution of 1920×1080 pixels and it’s a great blessing. While Acer and allows (option) set UltraHD screen with 3840×2160 pixels, I believe no sane gamer when buying a laptop will not do it, because they will lose this option, at least half of the FPS. But the FHD-approval in conjunction with the GTX970 and the more GTX980 – just fine.
