Today Acer announces the release of its “Unstoppable Fighting Machine,” the Acer Predator G6-710 gaming desktop. This is the first in a series of unveilings of Acer’s game changing Predator range during Gamescom. Acer will unleash the full gaming portfolio at IFA 2015 in Berlin in September.

The Predator G6-710 unveiled today at Gamescom in Cologne can be viewed at the TeamAcer Booth in Hall 10.1 / D050, which will be open to the public from August 6 – 9, 2015.

“We are thrilled to unveil our new Predator gaming machine for hardcore gamers that’s as enthralling on the exterior with its belligerent armour design as it is on the inside,” said Andrew Hou, general manager, Stationary Computing Business Unit, Acer. “It combines the bleeding edge technology gamers need to perform at their best. And with performance to spare, they can rest assured their investment will last for many, many gaming sessions.”

Unstoppable Power
Powered by the latest 6th Generation Intel® Core® i7-6700K processors, the Acer Predator G6-710 delivers maximum power by utilising the massive potential of the Intel core, the latest Windows 10 OS, and a market-dominating 64GB of DDR4 dual-channel memory. This huge amount of RAM futureproofs the G6-710 against new game releases, and lets users play, stream, work or have any other compute intensive tasks running with ease. The “One-Punch” CPU overclocking capability is combined with the IceTunnel cooling system to keep the system chilled at excess speeds, giving players an overwhelming power boost to take them through any tricky in-game situation. Network connectivity comes in the way of super-speedy WiFi 802.11ac. All of this is monitored and controlled from the PredatorSense control hub, which offers full running stats such as CPU clock rate, temperature, and the fan speed. Players can also adjust the lighting, fan and the overclock stage through the portal.

“The new 6th Gen Intel Core enthusiast desktop processors were designed specifically with gamers and enthusiasts in mind,” said Gregory Bryant, Intel corporate vice president and general manager, Desktop Client Platforms Group. “We’re excited to work closely with Acer to bring amazing performance and overclocking to gaming enthusiasts everywhere.”

To see this power turned into action, the G6-710 is running NVIDIA’s® GeForce® GTX 980 with UHD 4K2K (3840 x 2160) display capabilities. Paired with a matching high resolution monitor, such as the curved Predator X34 with G-SYNC technology, even the most demanding gamer can enjoy visuals with incredible detail free from lagging and stuttering.

Intimidating Visuals and Sound
The G6-710 comes with Creative Sound Blaster™ X-Fi MB5—with Environmental Audio Extensions (EAX®) 5.0 and 5.1 channel audio support—with new UI and customisable personal sound profile so users can tune the system to a new level of audio immersion. Whether on headphones, external speakers or the unit’s audio hardware, the ability to clearly hear specific sounds in a gaming environment is key to the whole experience and it’s just one of a few elements of SBX Pro Studio that supports optimum gaming, video and audio across the board. With four audio jacks, this unit is also perfect for group play.

All this is packed into a radically redesigned armour-like shell crafted to look the part of an unstoppable fighting machine. The casing allows for a bi-directional inflow of air to enable the IceTunnel cooling, and also houses the expansion slots (1 x PCI-E X16 slot, 2 x PCI-E X1 slots, 2 x M.2 slots), letting the beast support up to 12TB of storage (expandable by a further 512GB with SSD). Outfitted with the included SteelSeries APEX RAW keyboard, SteelSeries Sensei RAW gaming mouse and lavish USB port provision (6 x USB 3.0/ 2 x USB 2.0), there’s ample room to add in any extra peripherals a gamer needs to annihilate the competition.
