Acer unveils Predator Orion 7000, the world’s first Intel Alder Lake gaming PC

Acer has announced the high-performance Predator Orion 7000 desktop computer for gamers. The novelty uses a twelfth generation Intel Core processor (Alder Lake) and supports DDR5 memory with a frequency of 4000 MHz. Perhaps this is the first computer based on new Intel chips to be officially presented.

The desktop is made in a spectacular case. At the front are two new Predator FrostBlade 2.0 ARGB fans. Each of these coolers is equipped with eight LEDs and uses a special design to optimize airflow while reducing vibration and noise thanks to sealed screw bearings and new arcuate elements at the blade tips.

A liquid system is used to remove heat from the central processor. Specific CPU models are not listed as Intel has yet to provide them. The maximum configuration includes a graphics accelerator NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 and 64 GB of RAM.

The computer can be equipped with two M.2 PCIe 4.0 NVMe solid-state drives with a capacity of up to 1 TB each and two hard drives of 3 TB. At the top is a hot-swappable 2.5-inch drive bay.

The left side tempered glass panel allows you to admire the interior of the computer. The equipment includes an Intel Killer E3100G 2.5G Ethernet network controller and an Intel Wi-Fi 6E AX211 (Gig +) wireless adapter.

For the convenience of connecting peripherals, the upper part provides USB ports (three Type-A connectors and one Type-C port), as well as audio jacks.
