PC maker Acer has launched its gaming desktop, Predator Orion 9000, under its premium Predator gaming series in India. Priced at Rs 3,19,999, the Acer Predator Orion 9000 Gaming Desktop comes with Intel Core i9 Extreme Edition processors with up to 18 cores and 36 threads and up to two NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080Ti graphics cards. The Predator Orion 9000 will offer up to 128 GB DDR4 memory and 2TB hard disk
Acer Predator Orion 9000 series feature a black-and-silver spacecraft-like exterior with customizable RGB lighting along the sides of the front bezel. It is outfitted with two handles and wheels covered with a carbon fiber pattern, the new rigs can be easily moved from one location to another.
The Acer Predator Orion 9000 series feature liquid cooling and Acer's IceTunnel 2.0 to keep the temperature down. IceTunnel 2.0 is an advanced airflow management solution that separates the system into several thermal zones, each with an individual airflow tunnel to expel heat. Huge metal mesh panels on the front and top allow more cold air in and the rising hot air of the liquid-cooled CPU out, while up to five 120 mm fans in the front, top, and back channel cool air through the chassis. Part of the airflow is redirected towards the back of the motherboard tray to cool the storage devices. The graphic cards feature blower-style fans to drive the heat out from the back, while the PSU is self-contained to avoid thermal interference.
On the connectivity front, the Acer Predator Orion 9000 includes two USB 3.1 Gen 2 ports (one Type-C and one Type-A), eight USB 3.1 Gen 1 ports (one Type-C and seven Type-A) and two USB 2.0 ports (Type-A). The Predator Orion 9000 overall supports three M.2 slots to extend the ability to increase the speed, power and capabilities of the PC, and four PCIe x16 slots provide ample expansion for video cards.
