At its Global Press Conference in New York, Acer will be showcasing its new ConceptD brand of high-performance Windows 10 desktops and true-color monitors designed for graphic designers, video producers, architects, developers, engineers, and other creative professionals.
ConceptD: Timeless Design and Silent Operation
ConceptD high-end desktops are available in a beautiful, timeless design with a pure white or matt black finish, an amber backlit keyboard and a minimalist design aesthetic. As the foundation for a complete line of Creator products, Acer has developed PCs with powerful processors and graphics cards that can handle extreme workloads while providing absolute silent operation.
ConceptD High-End Desktops with NVIDIA® Graphics for the Enterprise Studio
The ConceptD 900 and 500 high-end desktops can be equipped with a range of GPUs up to NVIDIA® Quadro RTX™ 6000 GPUs that enable high-end visual effect rendering, complex 3D modeling, simulation, and AI and deep learning development. The latest Creator Ready Drivers from NVIDIA® offer enhanced app support and performance for studio applications such as Autodesk® Arnold, Unreal Engine, and REDCINE-X PRO®, accelerating complex work processes.
ConceptD 900 – The Dream Machine of Creatives
The ConceptD 900 is a powerful desktop for professionals who want to run multiple complex and demanding applications simultaneously. The device is powered by two Intel® Xeon® Gold 6148 processors with up to 40 cores and 80 threads, in combination with an NVIDIA® Quadro RTX™ 6000 graphics processor and 12 memory slots for a total of up to 192 GB ECC memory. The ConceptD 900 is therefore also ideal for AI and deep learning developers who require outstanding computing and graphics performance. Creative professionals can work more flexibly with up to two onboard M.2 PCIe slots. The compact chassis design offers space for up to five storage compartments with RAID 0/1-enabled drives. Additional onboard slots (three PCIe x8 and four PCIe x16) provide space for additional expansion. Thanks to the thermal design with six fans sucking air through the triangular patterned front air panel and directing it through the chassis, the ConceptD 900 always stays cool, even during compute-intensive processes such as rendering or video production. The matt black metal housing with a yellow LED accent on the power button provides an elegant, professional look that is particularly appreciated by design connoisseurs and aesthetes.
ConceptD 500 – Performance Desktop for Designers
The ConceptD 500 is a powerful desktop for film and video producers, animators, product designers and creative professionals who place the highest demands on their work. The device is equipped with powerful Intel® Core™ processors up to 9th generation and up to NVIDIA® Quadro RTX™ 4000 GPUs. Thanks to the combination of powerful processors, Creator tools and projects run fast, smoothly and stably on the ConceptD 500. Its CPU cores achieve a high single-core speed, but generate only low heat output and power consumption. With up to NVIDIA® Quadro RTX™ 4000 GPUs, the ConceptD 500 supports four 5K displays (5120 x 2880 @ 60Hz) with HDR, making complex visual effects, motion graphics, and animation a breeze.
ConceptD 500 is an extensible desktop that meets the ever-changing demands of the workload. With four DIMM slots for up to 64GB 2666MHz DDR4 memory, it offers plenty of bandwidth and capacity for fast performance in complex design tasks. The built-in PCIe M.2 NVMe SSD enables complex modeling and real-time 3D rendering. Three fans suck the air through the triangular front air panel and direct it through the ConceptD 500 chassis, yet at a noise level of 40dB it doesn’t interfere with the creative process. The ConceptD 500 features a white finish, soft curves and a minimalist design. The compact tower can be integrated into almost any workspace, and the top shines with an elegant wood pattern on which users can charge Qi-compatible devices wirelessly.
Creative professionals need color accuracy that goes beyond what most mainstream monitors on the market offer. Acer developed the ConceptD UHD monitors to meet these high demands. With a remarkable colour accuracy of Delta E <1 and a modern, smooth, black finish with a wood patterned base, the new PANTONE® validated monitors stand out from the competition.
The ConceptD CM7321K is an 81.3 cm (32 inch) monitor that is ideally suited to the needs of 2D creators. The VESA-certified panel, 81.3 cm (32-inch) 4K UHD display, features local dimming in 1,152 zones with mini LED technology and DisplayHDR 1000, 99 percent coverage of Adobe® RGB color space, and 89.5 percent Rec.2020 for creative and filmmakers to realize their ideas.
The ConceptD CP7271K is a PANTONE® validated 68.6 cm (27 inch) monitor designed for 3D designers. The model has an impressive color accuracy of Delta E <1, a wide color gamut of 99 percent of Adobe® RGB and 93 percent DCI-P3. The ConceptD CP7271K also features G-SYNC™ Ultimate and DisplayHDR™ 1000 for precise color and image detail.
