Ahead of Computex, Acer announced the launch of its advanced 16-inch Predator Triton gaming laptop powered by 13th Gen Intel processors and NVIDIA GPUs, as well as the 16-inch lightweight Swift Edge laptop with a 3.2K OLED screen powered by AMD processors. Acer also introduced the Acer Connect Vero W6m green MESH router and an expanded set of developer tools for its SpatialLabs 3D technology.
The Predator Triton 16-inch gaming laptop is the latest addition to the company’s advanced gaming lineup. The powerful computer is equipped with a 13th generation Intel Core processor up to Core i9 with a maximum frequency of up to 5.4 GHz, an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 graphics accelerator and up to 32 GB DDR5 RAM. The laptop can be equipped with two PCIe 4.0 M.2 SSDs up to 2TB in RAID0 mode.
The advanced Predator Triton cooling system uses liquid metal on the CPU cover, 5th generation AeroBlade 3D fans with proprietary Vortex Flow cooling optimization system.
The laptop has a 16-inch WQXGA IPS display with a resolution of 2560 × 1600 pixels, a peak brightness of 500 cd / m2 and a refresh rate of 240 Hz. The laptop is equipped with two USB 3.2 Gen 2 ports, an HDMI 2.1 connector, a USB Type-C port with Thunderbolt 4, and a microSD card reader.
The Predator Triton will be available in September in the US starting at $1,800 and in the EMEA region starting at €2,299.
The Acer Swift Edge 16″ is a lightweight laptop with an AMD Ryzen 7040-series (Zen 4) processor and AMD Radeon 780M integrated graphics. Depending on the processor, some models support AMD Ryzen AI, allowing the device to meet the demands of today’s AI environment. The laptop can be equipped with up to 32 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and a PCIe 4.0 SSD with a capacity of up to 2 TB.
The laptop is equipped with a Wi-Fi 7 compatible Intel Wi-Fi 6E tri-band wireless module and a Microsoft Pluton security processor. It has a number of smart features that ensure secure connections. Acer promises to provide wireless speeds up to 5.8 Gbps, multi-channel connection and latency of less than 2 ms.
Of course, the main advantage of Swift Edge is a 16-inch OLED display with an aspect ratio of 16:10, a resolution of 3200 × 2000 pixels, a refresh rate of 120 Hz and a brightness of up to 400 cd/m2. The display boasts True Black HDR 500 certification. The webcam has a resolution of 1440p, supports gaze correction, background blur, and auto-framing just due to Ryzen AI.
Swift Edge 16 will be available in July in the US starting at $1,300 and in EMEA starting at €1,199.
The Acer Connect Vero W6m Network Router is Acer’s first green Wi-Fi 6E router. The body is made from recycled materials (PCR). Eco mode provides efficient power consumption. The router is powered by a 2GHz quad-core MediaTek processor and provides a suite of advanced connectivity, coverage, and security features, including support for Wi-Fi 6E Tri-Band AXE7800.
The device provides speeds up to 7.8 Gbps for a fast and stable internet connection. It can also be paired with four devices and provides a network range of up to 465m in a dual MESH system and 930m in a four device system. The exact pricing and availability of the router has yet to be announced.
Acer has launched support for the Unity plug-in, expanding the developer toolset for its industry-leading SpatialLabs technology for simulating 3D on a flat screen without the need for extra glasses. Support for the new Unity plug-in enables developers across industries and practices to use SpatialLabs Pro devices to create 3D content and applications.
The company’s OpenXR runtime for SpatialLabs has been certified, allowing developers to use the OpenXR protocols to create glasses-free stereo 3D content and applications on commercial SpatialLab displays.
