Acer Gets In the Game, Unleashes Predators

With the rise of the legitimacy of eSports comes more and more gaming peripherals being created by top tech companies. Acer, a brand known for creating world-renowned notebooks and desktop PCs, is dipping its hand on the gaming market as well with the launch of their gaming-centric system, The Predator.

A couple of weeks back, Acer held an amazing brand launch at the center of Glorietta where they invited friends from the press, and Renovatio, a known Philippine e-Sports team to sample their full wares.

While relatively young in the game, Acer is showing its full force by also inviting and partnering with NVIDIA, Intel, and Cooler Master to produce top-of-the-line gaming and eSport gaming rigs, laptops, and peripherals. To top off an already packed support-system, Xsplit made video recording and game streaming even more seamless with the Predator series as well.

About half the size of the G3, the G1 still packs quite a punch fitted with 6th Gen Intel i7 processors, and can house the latest NVIDIA GeForce Graphic card available. This machine is deceptively small!
