Specifics of the 9th generation of Intel Coffee Lake-H processors available is not now known, but the Intel i7-9750H has been leaked which is the top of the range chip which will have a 28% over the last generation i7-8750H processor.

As the name suggests, the Acer ConceptD is a concept all-in-one desktop, designed for professionals. There isn't any news on upgradability as it's set to launch this July. Going for an ultra-thin and light design (1.1 kg only!), it doesn't compromise the tech specs inside as it packs a Windows 10 Pro OS with up to 8th Gen Intel Core i7 processors, up to 24GB DDR4 memory, up to NVIDIA GeForce MX250 graphics, and up to 1TB of responsive Gen 3 x4 PCIe SSD using NVMe technology.

Dubbed the ConceptD 9, 7 and 5, they're priced at US$4,999 (RM20,568), US$2,299, and US$1,699 respectively.

The next rung up the ConceptD ladder is the ConceptD 7, whose available GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q graphics card is sure to chew through graphics-accelerated workflows.

The Nitro 5 is available with a 15-inch display (weighs 5 pounds and is 1-inch thick) or a 17-inch display (weighs 5.8 pounds and is 1.1 inches thick). The RAM and storage options are the same as of the ConceptD 9. Both machines have a folding hinge that acts as an easel, similar to the one on the HP Spectre Folio. Unlike its two smaller, white siblings, the ConceptD 9 has an all-black exterior. Timeless design language, silenced processing, and extremely color-accurate displays distinguish these creator PCs and monitors. Acer puts emphasis on the fact that it is fully overclockable, although there is no mention of any proprietary software. To kick things off, Acer is announcing a trio of ConceptD laptops: the ConceptD 9, the ConceptD7, and the ConceptD 5. This includes an Intel i9 CPU with an NVIDIA RTX 2080 GPU.

Then there's an extremely high-end ConceptD 900 workstation, which is truly an all-out performance powerhouse. It's a sign that Acer hasn't given up on virtual reality after rumors surfaced late past year that the company was considering shuttering its StarVR subsidiary.


Acer's Predator gaming range is known for breaking the mould when it comes to its gaming machines, now they've taken it a step further with their latest flagship - the Helios 700, featuring a sliding keyboard.

The Predator Helios 700 gaming notebook will be available in North America in July starting at US$ 2,699.99; in EMEA in July starting at Euro 1,499.00; and in China in May, starting at RMB 11,999.

The all-new Predator Helios 700 includes a unique HyperDrift keyboard that slides forward, allowing increased airflow directly through the top of the notebook, enabling gamers to push the powerful components to their highest potential.

The Acer Predator Helios 700 will be available in April at a starting price of $2,700 (roughly Rs. 1,87,800).

Sales of the new products start as early as next month in the US.
