While most of the attention is currently concentrated on Acer’s ridiculously expensive and beastly Predator 21X curved gaming notebook, the company has also unveiled a much more modest gaming desktop called the Aspire GX. Like most OEM-banded desktops in the market, the Acer Aspire GX gaming desktop will be made available in multiple specifications – each with a different price, of course.
That aside, one rather interesting feature about the Acer Aspire GX is the fact that it ships with an Intel Kaby Lake processor. Consumers will be able to choose from either a 7th generation Intel Core i5 CPU or a Core i7 CPU of the same family as well. That said, the specific SKUs of the processors were not mentioned as well as the motherboard of choice.
When it comes to graphics, the Aces Aspire GX gaming desktop will come with four different graphics card options: Nvidia GTX 1070, GTX 1060, and Radeon RX 480. Oddly, Acer has also went the ‘extra mile’ to give consumers the option to opt for an ancient (but rare) GTX 745 graphics card as well. Storage-wise, the Aspire GX can be fitted with either 1TB, 2TB, or 3TB 5-inch hard drive along with a 128GB, 256GB, 1TB or 2TB SSD.
According to Acer, the Aspire GX gaming desktop will be made available in North America in March 2017 for a price starting from US$899.99 (about RM4,049).
