From professionals or heavy users looking for the latest technology to casual players who want a computer to play a game with once in a while. Today we want to talk about a model specially designed for the first ones. It is the Acer Predator Orion 9000, a true gaming beast that in 2020 has been updated to achieve even greater performance. Let’s take a look at its features.
Extreme Performance for the most demanding gamers
If you want to go pro at gaming or just like to keep up with the latest trends and have the most powerful equipment, you should take a look at the new Predator Orion 9000. Acer has upgraded its most powerful desktop computer to even a more extreme performance by upgrading the computer hardware and including a new advanced cooling system.
The Acer Predator Orion 9000 comes equipped with up to Intel Core i9-10980XE Extreme Edition processors. It is also available with an Intel Core i9-10940X X-Series or an Intel Core i9-9900X X-series.
Accompanying these powerful processors are various memory configurations. These range from 8 GB DDR4 at 2933 MHz in a single channel to no less than 128 GB DDR4 in a four-channel version. Also, the included memory supports XMP so that it can be upgraded to 3600 MHz easily and quickly.
To play at the highest level, it takes a graphics system that lives up to the hype, and the Predator Orion 9000 doesn’t disappoint. The computer can accommodate up to a dual NVIDIA Geforce RTX 2080 Ti graphics card in SLI mode. Other options include the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER and the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER.
And for storage, the computer offers multiple combinations. It supports three 3.5-inch HDDs and two 2.5-inch SSDs with an interchangeable USB 3.2 Gen2 Type C port for SSD/HDD drives.
The Acer Predator Orion 9000 requires a ventilation system that can control the temperature generated by all these high-end components. That’s why it’s equipped with three 4.7-inch Predator FrostBlade fans that deliver up to 16% more airflow and a 55% increase in static pressure compared to previous generations. It also features a liquid-cooled CPU fan to keep the processor cool even when you’ve been playing for hours.
Finally, the computer has some essential features in a gaming computer. It is equipped with Intel WiFi 6 and Killer E3100G for fast and reliable wired and wireless connectivity.
It also has a one-piece glass side panel that supports the EMI standard, allowing you to view ARGB lighting from internal fans. The chassis includes a headphone holder, handles, and wheels.
Price and Availability
In short, it is clear that this is a machine that is not for everyone. Only the most demanding gamers or professional content creators may need such powerful hardware. It has the latest and most powerful processors from Intel and the best RTX graphics from NVIDIA.
That said, it’s not exactly an affordable machine. The Acer Predator Orion 9000 will be available in October this year, starting at $3,000 in its most basic configuration. But this will be powerful enough for most users.
