Just in time for Steam’s Summer Picnic Sale, Predator launched its gaming systems here in the Philippines. If you’re looking for a new system to install the games you just bought, check these out Acer’s gaming series that promises cutting-edge gaming performance at a reasonable price compared to competitors.
The jam-packed event held at the Glorietta Activity Center introduced tablets, desktops, laptops, and a projector that can help you enhance your gaming experience with the latest technologies from partners like Intel, NVIDIA, Cooler Master and XSplit.
“The Predator has always been known to be a tough and rugged gaming brand and we will keep it that way,” said Steven J. Funcke, Predator marketing manager and global representative. “The Philippines has been tagged to be a haven for both serious gamers and enthusiasts and we know they’ll love the Predator, which has now expanded from a desktop to include several other devices built for the gamer in everybody.”
On the desktop front
The Predator G3-710 is equipped with Intel’s 6th-generation Skylake Core i7 6700 processor, NVIDIA GTX 900 series, and packed with 16GB of DDR4 2133MHz memory. This system is a powerhouse that can run AAA titles at 1080p easily. The Predator G3 comes equipped with IceTunnel technology to keep temperatures at bay and avoid performance throttling, 4K2K resolution that provides clear video details, SoundBlaster Cinema 2, and EAX 5.0 for complete immersion and experience.
The Predator G1 is the G3’s little brother, but don’t let the thinner frame fool you, it’s also equipped with the latest Skylake i7 processor and NVIDIA GTX 900 series graphic card (configurable up to a GTX Titan). The 16-liter case is a perfect gaming system for your living room with its sleek and slim design.
Both desktops are configurable to better suit your need and budget. The Predator G3 starts at P59,999. No word yet on pricing of the G1.
If you want to bring your games with you wherever you go, the Predator 15 is up for the task. Just like its desktop brethren, the Predator 15 also comes with the latest Skylake i7 processor and NVIDIA 900M series graphics card (we’ve tested its bigger brother before). Predator partnered with Cooler Master to keep your system cool and performing at full speed for hours with the option of hot-swapping the DVD-ROM drive for a cooling fan dubbed the Predator FrostCore technology. It also features DoubleShot Pro, a network solution that aims to optimize bandwidth.
The ProZone keyboard also provides great accuracy and customizability to suit the widest range of gaming needs. The Predator 15 starts at P69,999. Every purchase of the Predator 15 comes with a 6-month subscription of XSplit streaming software, so you can share your gaming experience to the community.
Even more mobile gaming
Mobile gamers are not left out as the Predator 8 GT-810 tablets is ready for the most demanding Android games available on the Play Store and elsewhere. The 8-inch Full HD IPS panel certainly brings your mobile games to life with its rich and vivid colors. This tablet features the Intel x7-Z8700 quad-core CPU to meet your daily mobile fix. The Predator 8’s price got slashed and is now available at P12,990.
One sick display
You might want to pair your Predator G3 or G1 with the Predator X34, a 34-inch curved ultra-wide monitor. The Predator X34 boasts a resolution of 3,440 x 1,440, commonly known as QHD or Quad High-Definition. The 21:9 aspect ratio is perfect for driving simulators and glorious landscape-laden games like Arkham Knight, Skyrim, Fallout 4, to name a few. You can even overclock the panel’s refresh rate up to 100Hz for smoother action scenes. You can snag the Predator X34 for P64,990.
Project all you want
If a 34-inch monitor doesn’t satisfy you, then the Predator Z650 short-throw projector might be up your alley. All you need is a wall to project this bad boy, and you can game with all your heart’s content as this projector can produce a 100-inch display from a short 1.5-meter distance. The Full HD display with ColorPurity feature produces a wide color gamut and sRGB provides a more accurate reproduction of colors, plus the Ambient Light Rejection Technology helps direct the light straight to the player for clarity and visibility. The Z650 is available for P78,990.
During the event there was also an Overwatch tournament for the VIPs that was electrified by a performance from Kjwan. The victors were able to bring home a Predator backpack.
Predator gaming systems are available at PC Express Gilmore, Villman Computers at SM North EDSA, and Octagon Computer Superstore at SM Megamall.
