Desktop Acer ConceptD
Desktop computers ConceptD 900 and ConceptD 500 are designed to work with complex visual effects, 3D-modeling, as well as solving problems based on AI-algorithms and machine learning.
ConceptD 900 is built on the basis of two Intel Xeon Gold 6148 processors, in total, equipped with 40 cores and 80 threads. The NVIDIA Quadro RTX 6000 professional graphics card is responsible for the graphics capabilities of the desktop. The presence of 12 DIMM slots provides the ability to install up to 192 GB of ECC memory in the system unit. The chassis of the novelty holds up to five bays for drives with support for RAID 0/1, in addition, the user has three free PCIe x8 slots and four PCIe x16 slots.
An efficient cooling system of six fans drives air through a triangular-shaped front panel and circulates it throughout the entire housing. The PC is made in matt black with amber accent lighting.
The ConceptD 500 in white wood trim is equipped with a Qi wireless charging pad and a retractable headphone stand. The core of the computer was the ninth-generation Intel Core processor with 8 cores, 16 threads and a clock speed of up to 5 GHz with the support of the NVIDIA Quadro RTX 4000 video card. It is possible to connect up to four 5K displays with a sweep frequency of 60 Hz and a wide dynamic range.
The presence of four DIMM slots for DDR4 memory with a total capacity of up to 26 GB with a frequency of up to 2666 MHz provides greater throughput and high performance. Built-in solid-state NVMe-drive allows you to work with large-scale models and perform complex three-dimensional rendering in real time. For the removal of heat from the productive filling is responsible proprietary cooling system of the three fans.
Acer ConceptD 900 will go on sale in May at a price of $ 19,990. The release of the ConceptD 500 will take place in July, the retail price of the desktop will be from $ 1,699, depending on the configuration.

The color gamut of the matrix device covers 100 percent of the range of Adobe RGB. Supported work with the stylus Wacom EMR (4096 degrees of depression). The laptop is based on the latest Intel processor and graphics accelerator NVIDIA RTX. It will go on sale with different configurations of RAM and ROM at a price of $ 4,999.
The 15.6-inch ConceptD 7 differs from the older model in its compact dimensions – its thickness is 17.9 mm and its weight is about 2.1 kg. Another change was the use of NVIDIA RTX video cards with a Max-Q design to reduce the thermal package. The price of new items starts at $ 2,299.
The ConceptD 5 is an even thinner and lighter professional notebook with a thickness of 16.9 mm and a weight of about 1.5 kg. In its design uses magnesium alloy, the display has a narrow frame.

Monitors Acer ConceptD
The Acer ConceptD CM7321K is a 32-inch 4K monitor for 2D content creators. The model has been certified DisplayHDR 1000, 1152 LED zone with local dimming and 99% coverage of the color space Adobe RGB / 89.5% Rec.2020. Its price is $ 3199, sales will begin in September 2019.
ConceptD CP7271K with a diagonal of 27 inches is optimized for the creators of 3D-projects. It is distinguished by high color accuracy Delta-E <1 and wide color gamut (99% of AdobeRGB color space and 93% of DCI-P3 color space). The monitor supports G-SYNC Ultimate technology and is certified to the DisplayHDR 1000 standard. It will go retail in July and will cost customers $ 1999.
