Acer unwraps new Nitro gaming PCs and monitors
Acer has been busy today. As well as the new Orion desktops and Helios notebooks, the company unveiled new Nitro Series gaming desktop PCs and monitors.
The new Acer Nitro 50 Series desktops and Nitro VG0 and RG0 Series monitors easily handle demanding processing and graphics requirements for both content creation and consumption.
Acer Nitro 50 Desktops
Acer created the Nitro 50 Series for those seeking the processing power and capabilities only a desktop PC can offer but at an affordable price.
These performance PCs are powered by up to 8th Gen Intel Core i7 processors, and equipped with up to NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 GPUs.
They deliver stunning 4K resolution visuals and can support up to four displays simultaneously for immersive gameplay. Additionally, with up to a 3TB HDD and a 512GB SSD, there’s no shortage of storage either.
They also sport a handy wireless charging deck for keeping your Qi-enabled devices powered.
Lastly, the Nitro 50 desktops optimises network speed for gaming, browsing, and streaming through Realtek Dragon LAN. For totally immersive entertainment or to transform the gaming experience into an eye-popping stereoscopic experience, just match the Nitro 50 desktop with an Acer Nitro VG0 or RG0 monitor.
Nitro VG0 and RG0 Series Monitors
That leads me on nicely to these new IPS5 monitors with AMD Radeon FreeSync. They boast a fast response time of up to 1ms Visual Response Boost (VRB) for smooth gameplay
without breaking the bank.
The VG0 series is available with 27-, 23.8- and 21.5-inch panels delivering true-to-life colour, and resolutions of 4K UHD, WQHD or Full HD.
The ultra-thin Acer Nitro RG0 series boasts a sleek .27-inch thin profile and is offered in 27- and 23.8-inch models. Both models feature sophisticated but functional design that have earned them 2018 Red Dot Design Awards.
Thanks to AMD Radeon FreeSync, the new Nitro monitor’s frames sync with the graphics card’s frames. This eliminate screen tearing and minimises lag so that you’re left with smooth gaming.
Integrated Visual Response Boost (VRB) decreases blur in fast moving images to achieve the effect of a 1ms MPRT, along with up to 144 Hz refresh rates. Integrated 6-axis colour adjustment allows you to fine-tune colour, hue and saturation. Furthermore, the built-in black boost enables you to select from 11 black level options to optimise visual advantage and clearly spot enemies, duck for cover, or navigate curves on a race track.
The new RG0 series’ 1920×1080@75Hz resolution delivers excellent visual detail. The IPS panels provide accurate views even at wide angles of up to 178 degrees horizontally and vertically.
Also, the monitors can tilt from –5 to 20 degrees (–5 to 15 degrees for RG0) for more ergonomic gaming marathons. Meeting 72% of the NTSC standard and delivering a 250 cd/m2 brightness, these monitors produce vibrant colours and images.
Two 2W stereo speakers deliver audio and HDMI, VGA and DisplayPort ports connect to a wide array of PCs.
Finally, Acer VisionCare employs Flickerless, BlueLightShield, ComfyView and low-dimming tech for your viewing comfort. The ZeroFrame design maximises viewing area and supports near seamless multi-monitor setups.
