Acer Aspire Predator is stalking the prey of competition in the gaming industry and taking gaming to the next level. This hard core gaming machine is optimized and specifically designed for gamers. The computer hardware and components are extreme and need to be cooled down with its liquid cooling system.
A hybrid computer spawn of Alien and Michael Bay’s Transformers – this Quad Core predator from Acer shows no gaming fear. Possibly one of the best ever designed gaming machine, with Alienware Custom Computers coming in a close second.
The Acer Predator has sleek curves that has the power of the transformers and actually looks similar to the Autobot Bumble bee.
Under the sleek curves and eccentric color lies the heart of this gaming beast. If this isn’t enough be sure to request a custom build.
Acer’s Aspire Predator offers two-way and three-way enabled NVIDIA SLI. Push gaming visuals over the top by combining the power of two or three independent NVIDIA GPUs via SLI technology: 1.5 GB of dedicated GDDR3 VRAM and three of the most advanced GPUs running simultaneously give you the latest in high-performance graphics.
A Completely Cool System
The Acer Aspire Predator features a two-part liquid cooling design for completely cool system performance. The rear-mounted heat sink connects to a pump located on the CPU, while copper pipes use natural entropy to cool the MOSFET, North Bridge, South Bridge and PCIe Expander. A quiet-running case fan tops off this system so you can confidently push the limits of gaming and entertainment.
Heart Stopping Sound Effects
The Predator offers Sound Blaster X-Fi Platinum sound technology for the most realistic sound effects and immersive game experiences. With the Sound Blaster X-Fi Platinum sound card you will always hear your enemies coming with a 15% boost in sound effects processing over leading on board sound technologies.
The choice of professional gamers, Creative’s Sound Blaster X-Fi is an official product of the Championship Gaming Series. Trusted high-fidelity sound; you can hear the bullets fly past your head, tremble with every explosion and feel the eerie silence before the storm.
The Aspire Predator hosts optimized Dolby Home Theater, putting gamers in the middle of the onscreen action with vivid surround sound using two to eight speakers or any set of headphones. Dolby Home Theater technologies include:
Reliable Online Gaming
DualLan Technology is the fastest and most stable internet connection available for a PC. Offering two Ethernet ports on a single chip, this technology allows for the fastest teaming linkage and stable fail -over configurations. The service is ideal for demanding gamers who need their computers to not only play games, but to serve as a server when hosting LAN parties with friends.
Expansive and Superior Storage
The Aspire Predator features a wealth of ports, slots and jacks so you never have to even think about where to plug-in your various devices. Nine USB ports , six audio jacks with 7.1-channel and SPDIF support, a 14-in-1 card reader, two external eSATA ports and a front mounted Acer EasSwap HDD cage, provide tremendous room for storage and expansion.
To The Upper Limits and Beyond
The Intel Core2 Extreme processor, two-way/three-way NVIDIA SLI, 8 GB of DDR2 RAM, could the Aspire Predator get any faster? Well yes.
Acer’s Aspire Predator offers minimum risk overclocking capabilities, so you can fiddle, tweak, and push it to the limits of performance. Utilizing a handy Acer UI, this machine allows the enthusiast to tune the Intel Core2 Extreme processor, NVIDIA SLI graphics cards and RAM for mind-blowing performance.
NVIDIA nTune technology offers easy overclocking and underclocking management for your system. nTune automatically detects the application running and dynamically optimizes the PC settings. Faster than tuning by hand, nTune delivers optimal settings for bus speeds, HypewrTransport, memory timings, CPU registers, fans, and voltages in a safe, easy-to-use Microsoft Windows interface.
The Aspire Predator was designed to be pressed, and comes with a CMOS hard reset on the rear of the computer. Using this hard reset you can restore you CMOS settings to the factory defaults in the event that tweaking with the settings causes the computer to shutdown.
