Acer Predator Gaming Lineup Gains 17-Inch Laptop, SFF Desktop, Monitor

Posted by at 2:28 pm on April 25, 2016

Acer announced the debut of three new products in the company’s Predator gaming lineup, including a curved 27-inch Predator Z1 gaming monitor, a small form factor (SFF) gaming PC called the Predator G1, and Acer’s new flagship gaming  laptop the Predator 17X.

Predator Z1

Acer took its formula for other Z1-branded Predator gaming monitors and shrunk the screen size down to create the company’s first curved 27-inch gaming monitor. The new 27-inch version of the Predator Z1 features many of the same specs as its predecessors.

The new 27-inch Predator Z1 takes after its bigger brothers with a high refresh rate and low response time. It also features Nvidia G-Sync, which reduces screen tearing by matching the refresh rate of the monitor to the GPU. The Z1 offers an impressive viewing experience starting at $599. We should start seeing the new monitors this June.

Predator G1


The Predator G1 is Acer’s version of a small form factor PC, offering performancehardware in a small package. The Predator G1 can be equipped with a 6th generation (Skylake) Intel Core-series processor, up to 64 GB of DDR4-2133, and Nvidia GTX graphics cards (up to a Titan X). It measures up similarly to other single-GPU SFF PCs, and seems to be Acer’s answer to the seemingly growing trend of “small and powerful” devices. The Predator G1 will be available this July starting at $2,299.
