Acer Predator G1 Desktop
Every detail of the Predator G1 desktop is created with gamers in mind. An armor-inspired design makes this compact juggernaut look the part of a deadly killing machine. Smaller and deadlier, the powerful war machine’s 16-litre body conceals the power of a full-sized graphics card – the latest NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1080. The graphics card is blazing fast, incredibly efficient and whispery quiet, delivering unprecedented performance and power efficiency. The card delivers up to three times the performance of previous-generation graphics cards, taking gaming and next generation virtual reality (VR) experiences to an entirely new level.
Supporting four VR standards and coupled with creative Sound Blaster X-Fi MB5 and 7.1 channel audio support give rise to the massively immersive gaming experience of the Predator G1.
