As the gaming community in the country continues to grow, the demand for more powerful and performance-packed devices also increases. Acer Philippines stepped up to the plate and announced its latest gaming arsenal: the Predator gaming system, which includes the Predator 15 laptop, Predator G3-710 and G1 desktops, Predator Z650 projector, Predator 8 tablet, and Predator X34 curved monitor.

Let’s take a closer look at each product in the Predator gaming device lineup.

Predator 15

The Predator 15  (starts at P69,999) is equipped with the FrostCore fan, which keeps the laptop cool even during intense gaming sessions and the Killer DoubleShot Pro technology for managing the bandwidth allocation of your apps and the internet requirements over wired and wireless connections. This 15-inch gaming laptop features a ProZone Keyboard with four customizable  back-light zones and macro buttons.

Running Windows 10 Home, the Predator 15 comes with a 6th-gen Intel Core i7 processor, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980M GPU, Thunderbolt 3, and Predator SoundPound and PredatorSense.

Predator X34

Touted as the world’s first curved gaming monitor, the 34-inch Predator X34 (P64,990) sports an IPS display with 21:9 aspect ratio, wide-angle viewing, and NVIDIA G-SYNC. It has two built-in 7W DTS speakers, up to 100Hz refresh rate, GameView OSD setting, and EyeProtect feature.

There is a customizable underglow at the bottom of the monitor to let you see your mouse and keyboard when it’s dark.

Predator G3-710 and G1

The Predator G3-710 (starts at P59,999) and the smaller Predator G1 (price yet to be announced) both come with 6th-generation Intel Core i7 processor and the latest NVIDIA GeForce GTX graphics cards. The two desktops are also housed in a similar armor-like body and run Windows 10 Home 64-bit.
