The Taiwanese giant has surprised us with the presentation of the new Acer Predator Orion 7000, a gaming PC that adopts an aggressive design that combines the transparency of tempered glass with RGB LED lighting, all integrated on a black base that generates, as a whole, a very attractive contrast, and that manages to give it a truly unique.

In terms of design we have nothing to object, the Acer Predator Orion 7000 fulfills its purpose of transmitting that gaming spirit that characterizes high-end equipment, although as usual, the important thing is inside. The Acer Predator Orion 7000 becomes one of the first of its kind to use the new Intel Alder Lake-S processors, framed in the chip giant’s twelfth generation of Core CPUs, and based on a hybrid design that combines high-efficiency cores with high-performance cores.

We still don’t know what configuration options the Acer Predator Orion 7000 will offer, but we can imagine that will peak on an Intel Core i9-12900K, a processor that adds 8 high-performance cores and 16 threads, and that also comes with another eight high-efficiency cores, which leaves us a total of 24 threads. As expected, it will be accompanied by a 600 series motherboard with DDR5 memory support.
