The Bottom Line

With 4 graphics cards in tow, If there ever was a bang for buck monster of a gaming rig, this is it.

Leave it to Acer to unveil the most insane gaming computer of the year. As part of the IFA Berlin event 2017, the company showed us the first glimpse of Acer Predator Orion 9000.

The Acer Predator Orion 9000 is encased in a heavy, industrial-ish case with a window on the side and meshed metal on its front, back, and top. The mesh helps with the cooling system, which happens to be a combination of air and liquid cooling, with various parts of the computer divided into different cooling zones to allow for best performance and cooling effect. The whole computer is in-fact, semi-portable, with wheels on the back so you don’t have to throw your back while moving it from one place to another.

Coming to the specs. The Orion 9000 comes with an 18-core Intel Core i9 Extreme Edition processor, upto 128GB of 4-channel DDR4 RAM, up to four graphics cards, and up to 44 TeraBytes of storage.

The rig can come with either Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080ti cards or AMD Radeon RX Vega graphics cards — either of those options will certainly be enough to power any game you choose to play, on whichever resolution you choose.

Acer says this monster will be priced at a reasonable $2,000 – $3,000, but that is likely to climb fast if you opt for the more powerful variants. The Orion 9000 should be available in the EMEA region in November, followed by a U.S. launch by December.

In addition to the Orion 9000, Acer also announced the Predator X35, a 35-inch, curved, 21:9 HDR display monitor with a 3,440 x 1,440 pixel resolution. It comes with a 4ms response rate and a 200Hz refresh rate, which is bound to make sure the games running are looking sharp and smooth.

Like every other kind of hardware from Acer’s Predator lineup, the X35 is styled quite aggressively — it might not be the best fit for an office but it should feel right at home in a gamer’s den.

The Acer Predator X35 display will hit the global market in the first quarter of 2018.
