If the boffins in Acer are on the money, there’s a good chunk of notebook users who want the power that high-end gaming notebooks have to offer but prefer something lighter and with a lot less ostentatious RGB-laden bling in their hardware. Acer has heard the call and they’ve announced the new ConceptD 7 laptop that not only comes with the latest NVIDIA Quadro RTX 5000 series GPUs but the sort of classy, understated look that will get you instant cred in either the boardroom or at Starbucks.
Flip the lid open and you’re immediately drawn to the 15.6-inch UHD (3,840 x 2,160) pixel resolution display that has been PANTONE validated and which has 100% of the RGB colour space with a colour accuracy of Delta E<2 for superb colour accuracy.
In terms of hardware, the ConceptD 7 integrates an Intel Core i7-9750H 2.6GHz processor, 32GB RAM, the latest Quadro RTX 5000 graphics with 16GB GDDR6 VRAM and 1TB NVME storage.
The biggest draw to the Acer Concepts 7 though is its potent new NVIDIA Quadro RTX 5000 graphics which allow the Concepts 7 to tackle intensive tasks like rendering large models, graphics and movie editing without perceptible lag. Pair it up with the 4K colour-accurate display and you have one heck of a work rig indeed.
All this tech-laden goodness is done up in a chassis that is 17.9mm thin and weighing 2.1kg with an exceptionally classy matte white finish chased in silver with matching coloured keys No prices or availability dates were announced at launch but we’ll keep you posted.
