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, and the lightweight 16-inch Swift Edge laptop with a 3.2K OLED screen and 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 16-inch Predator Triton gaming laptop is the latest addition to the company’s advanced gaming range. 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 of DDR5 RAM. The laptop can be equipped with two PCIe 4.0 M.2 SSDs up to 2 TB in RAID0 mode.
Advanced Predator Triton cooling system uses liquid metal on CPU shroud, 5th generation AeroBlade 3D fan with proprietary Vortex Flow cooling optimization system.
The laptop sports a 16-inch WQXGA IPS display with a resolution of 2560×1600 pixels and a peak brightness of 500 cd/m²2 and a refresh rate of 240 Hz. The laptop is equipped with two USB 3.2 Gen 2 ports, one HDMI 2.1 port, one USB Type-C port with Thunderbolt 4, and a microSD card reader.
The Predator Triton will be available in September starting at $1,800 in the US and €2,299 in EMEA.
The Acer Swift Edge 16″ is a lightweight laptop with an AMD Ryzen 7040 series (Zen 4) processor and integrated AMD Radeon 780M graphics. Depending on the processor, some models support AMD Ryzen AI, allowing the device to meet the demands of today’s AI 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 radio and a Microsoft Pluton security processor. It has a number of smart features that ensure secure connections. Acer promises WiFi speeds of up to 5.8 Gbps, a multi-channel connection and a latency of less than 2 ms.
The main advantage of Swift Edge is, of course, 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 brightness up to 400 cd/m2. The display has True Black HDR 500 certification. The webcam has a resolution of 1440p, supports gaze correction, background blurring and auto-framing thanks to Ryzen AI alone.
Swift Edge 16 will be available in July in the US from $1,300 and in EMEA from €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 ensures efficient power consumption. The router is powered by a 2GHz quad-core MediaTek processor and offers a range of advanced connectivity, coverage and security features, including support for Wi-Fi 6E Tri-Band AXE7800.
The device offers speeds of up to 7.8 Gbps for a fast and stable internet connection. It can also be paired with four devices and offers a network range of up to 465 m in a dual MESH system and 930 m in a four-device system. The exact price and availability of the router have yet to be announced.
Acer has introduced support for the Unity plugin, expanding the developer toolset for its industry-leading SpatialLabs technology to simulate 3D on a flat panel without the need for additional glasses. With support for the new Unity plugin, developers across industries and practices can use SpatialLabs Pro devices to create 3D content and applications.
The company’s OpenXR runtime environment 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.
