Acer Launches Aspire "Predator" AG7750 Gaming Desktop With Core i7

Acer's Aspire "Predator" gaming PC line has only been around a couple of years now, but it has already gained a huge following in the sector and is widely viewed as a legitimate rival to Alienware and other high-end gaming PC companies. Now, the company is ready to unveil their newest beast, which boasts a chassis that is just as outrageous as the components within.

The newest Predator would make the older ones proud, as the AG7750 still utilizes the wild orange case that could've easily arrived straight out of Transformers. Acer themselves remarks that this machine is built specifically for "avid gamers," with a Core i7 720 quad-core CPU inside, along with NVIDIA's GeForce GTX470 GPU (with 3-way SLI support), 9GB of DDR3 RAM (up to 12GB is supported) and DirectX 11 support. There's also a 1TB hard drive, four SATA hard discs, and a two-part liquid cooling system that keeps this wild thing cool even during intense gaming sessions. It's available now for around $1800, but that's just the starting price. You can certainly customize this one to be nearly as expensive as you want it to be.

 New Acer Aspire “Predator” AG7750 Gears Up for World Domination

Aggressive New Design and Souped Up Specs Give the Aspire AG7750 an Appetite for Destruction

MISSISSAUGA, Ontario--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Acer, the world’s second largest vendor in the PC market,(1) today announced its newest Acer Aspire “Predator” gaming desktop PC is armed for combat and ready to do battle in Canada. A force to be reckoned with, the power-packed AG7750-E2112 harnesses the pinnacle of processor, graphics and memory technologies for conquering the fiercest opponents.

    “Designed to conquer and destroy, the Aspire Predator boasts a rugged, intimidating chassis as well as super power and speed”

Taking bold style and performance to a killer level, the Aspire Predator is designed for avid gamers with a “take no prisoners” attitude. It’s a monster machine outfitted with plenty of ammo, including an Intel® Core™ i7 quad core processor, NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX470 graphics with 3-way SLI support and a whopping 9GB DDR3 memory, which can be expanded to 12GB for blowing away the competition.

“Designed to conquer and destroy, the Aspire Predator boasts a rugged, intimidating chassis as well as super power and speed,” said Susan Hu, retail desktop product management for Acer Canada. “It’s a smoking hot gaming rig delivering eye-popping graphics and dynamic audio for a jaw dropping experience that will fire up even hard core gamers. Plus, plenty of room for future upgrades will assist gamers in their quest to reign supreme in the new world order.”

NVIDIA 3-Way SLI Graphics Pump Up Games With Stunning Visual Definition

The Predator AG7750 is ready from a thermal and power standpoint to take on 3-way SLI graphics, the next generation in graphics technology. Outfitted with the NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX470 with NVIDIA® SLI, users can scale graphics performance by combining multiple NVIDIA graphics solutions in a 3-way SLI-certified motherboard. The motherboard has an installed GTX470 card and can accommodate up to two more. These advanced GPUs run simultaneously to deliver kickass, high-performance graphics playback. The combined power of DirectX 11, CUDA™ and NVIDIA® PhysX® Technologies deliver amazing, cinematic quality visuals.

Fierce Quad Core Power Shreds Opponents

Outfitted for battle, the Aspire Predator AG7750 is power packed with an Intel® Core™ i7 920 quad-core processor that delivers the ultimate speed for gaming, including 3D as well as multitasking and other multimedia entertainment. Intel® Turbo Boost Technology heightens performance by increasing processor frequency by 133MHz on short and regular intervals if it’s operating below power until the upper limit is met or the maximum possible upside for the number of active cores is reached. It also increases energy efficiency by allowing near-zero power consumption for inactive cores.

Gamers will appreciate the 1TB(2) internal SATA hard drive. Adding further fuel to the fire are three additional easy-swap hard disk drive (HDD) cages, allowing up to a total of four Serial ATA 3 G/bs high-capacity hard disks to be added with up to 2TB(2) capacity per single drive for a total storage capacity of up to 8TB. Users can save game files, movies, music and more on the local disks, which can be removed for transport.

The Aspire Predator provides clear, heart pounding sound to ratchet up the excitement of gaming tourneys via high-definition 7.1-channel audio, Creative® THX® TruStudio PC™ and EAX® 5.0 technology.

A state-of-the-art, two-part liquid cooling system protects PC performance even during the fiercest matches, so gamers can confidently push their limits.

Radical Design Intimidates Rivals

Showcasing Acer’s innovation, the dramatic orange and black desktop visually shouts power. The intimidating exterior boasts a mechanized front cover that can be raised up and over the front of the chassis to provide convenient access to a multi-card reader, USB and audio ports. The chassis is also covered by a rugged protective material and has a secure handle for transport.

Opening the case reveals the inner power of the Predator, including striking and highly dynamic mechanical elements and cool lighting effects, such as claw-like optical disc drive (ODD) doors, easy swap HDDs and red LED lighting. An illuminated door on the lower front of the chassis provides quick entry to the hard disks, simplifying upgrades.

Highly Scalable, Well-Connected

Gamers who want to ensure their PC remains on the cutting edge will be pleased to know that the Aspire Predator AG7750 is highly scalable, allowing integration of many advanced components and gaming peripherals, such as joysticks, steering wheels, foot pedals and more. The system comes with a multi-in-one card reader, an optical drive and is easily expandable with an available 5.25-inch optical drive bay and a variety of open PCI Express slots, including a PCI x16, two PCI Express x1 and a standard PCI. The system also offers a host of connectivity options including 11 USB 2.0 ports (five in front, six in back), IEEE 1394, two eSATA ports, two Ethernet ports, two DVI ports (up to six with three graphics cards), HDMI® and various others.

Slick Software Suite

I don't know... You can't customize this in any particular way according to the Acer website and it doesn't really scream "buy me". Now if I could truly customize this instead of having to look for the best configuration on various sites then it'd be a dream come true for me.

They were probably looking at gaming cases online while smoking a combination of pot and marijuana and then one of them watched the entirety of Transformers and said, "I think we got our uber-awesome case".

And that was how the "Predator" case was born.

LOL Taylor, that's not all this case is, there is a hidden control in it. when your not looking it will transform and walk away to be sold again... :D

But the case doesn't look 100% hideous, i like parts of it. but the color choice is not for me though. The build looks nice :D, that starting price tag isn't right for me though :(

I don't why Acer continues to insist on putting this orange color on all of their high end equipment....

That color only looks good on Corvettes :-)

some times less is more, and in this case less may have helped the case design

Someone must have been looking at a CPU cooler and thought the fins would make a great case design...
