Taipei last night, announcing more than a dozen new products across their
Of the new announcements – including laptops,
desktops and monitors – only three have confirmed Australian release dates
and/or prices and are subsequently the focus here.
First up is the Predator Triton 300
notebook, being pitched for gamers and content creators alike.
The newly announced version features a 10th
Gen Intel Core H-series processor, up to a NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 GPU, and a 15.6in
240 Hz display refresh rate with a 3ms response time and 100 percent sRGB
colour space support.
The chassis itself is metal and measures
19.9mm thin, with the unit weighing 2.1kg. It will also supports up to three M.2 SSDs
(one PCIe, two combos), and three heat pipes have been added to the device’s
advanced thermal design, which also includes a dual-fan cooling system.
While Australian pricing is still to be
confirmed, Acer have confirmed the Triton 300 will be available from Harvey
Norman stores from next month.
For the serious desktop gamer who wants
something to fit pretty much anywhere, Acer announced the Predator Orion 3000
tower, featuring a 10th generation Intel i7 processor, Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070,
up to 64GB RAM and up to a 1TB SSD.
The tower also has DTS:X audio and PredatorSense
software; Acer have said the Orion 3000 will be available in Australia in
September starting from AUD $2,499.
Keeping with the desktop range, Acer also
announced the Nitro 50 tower, featuring a 10th Gen Intel i7 processor and Nvidia
GeForce RTX 2060 Super graphics card, up to 64GB RAM and up to a 1TB SSD as
well as a Qi wireless charging pad.

There’s quite a lot of neat stuff in the
showcase, including some really impressive gaming kit, so I’m looking forward
to getting release dates and Australian price confirmations in due course.
