Acer ConceptD 7 mobile workstation wants a piece of the Quadro RTX 5000 pie
Acer announced its ConceptD series of mobile workstations back in April with SKUs consisting up to the Intel Core i9 and GeForce RTX 2080 GPU. Now that Nvidia is ready to launch its Quadro RTX series, however, Acer will soon begin offering Quadro RTX options up to the RTX 5000 for its ConceptD 7 laptop.
"The new Quadro RTX 5000 GPU brings unparalleled performance for 3D rendering and compute-intensive tasks," claims Acer general manager of IT notebooks James Lin. The ConceptD 7 will be one of the first Quadro RTX laptops to hit the market alongside the refreshed Dell Precision, HP ZBook 15 and 17, and the surprising Razer Blade Pro 17 Studio Edition.
Other core specifications will remain identical to the original ConceptD 7 including the 17.9 mm thickness and optional Pantone-certified 4K UHD IPS display.
There is no word yet on when we can expect the Acer ConceptD 7 with Quadro RTX to begin shipping. Based on what we know from Dell and HP, however, a July launch window would be the earliest.
TAIPEI, TAIWAN (May 27, 2019) Acer today announced the ConceptD 7 laptop is now powered by up to NVIDIA Quadro RTX 5000 GPUs, letting creators enjoy true creative freedom in revolutionary thin-and-light form factors that deliver exceptional performance and never before seen graphics capabilities in a notebook.
ConceptD is the company’s new brand of high-end Windows 10 desktops, notebooks, and displays that are optimized for graphic designers, filmmakers, engineers, architects, developers and other creators.
“The new Quadro RTX 5000 GPU brings unparalleled performance for 3D rendering and compute-intensive tasks, and coupled with the portability of the ConceptD 7 delivers a true mobile workstation solution,” said James Lin, General Manager, Notebooks, IT Product Business, Acer Inc. “Creators now have freedom of mobility that will bring production times down and allow them to work whenever, and where creativity strikes.”
One of the first NVIDIA RTX Studio laptops, with a range of configurations including both the new Quadro RTX 5000 and GeForce RTX GPUs, the ConceptD 7 laptop is part of the company’s new line of high-end Windows 10 desktops, notebooks, and displays that are optimized for graphic designers, filmmakers, engineers, architects, developers and other creators.
ConceptD 7 and Quadro RTX 5000 GPUs
The Concept 7 notebook harnesses the power of the Quadro RTX 5000 GPU, which is based on NVIDIA’s Turing architecture, to achieve significant performance improvements compared to previous generations, bringing the latest in real-time ray-tracing technology to creations with Turing RT Cores for remarkable photorealistic rendering. Creators can accelerate the most complex creative workflows with AI-augmented tools powered by Turing Tensor Cores. With 16GB of the latest GDDR6 memory and twice the memory bandwidth compared to previous generations, artists can work with large models, scenes, and assemblies without lag. They can also benefit from more fluid, interactive performance during design, visualization, simulation and VR. Film editors and 3D creators can work with up to 8K video in real-time live on-set or on the go.
The latest memory technology and bandwidth also provides the graphics memory necessary to support running multiple creative applications simultaneously. With the ability to drive up to four 5K displays or two 8K displays, the ConceptD 7 notebook with Quadro RTX 5000 provides the richest, most expansive visual workspace available in a laptop and lets creators build hyper-realistic objects and environments.
ConceptD 7 – Unparalleled Editing and Rendering Performance
Featuring up to a 9th Gen Intel Core i7 processor for premium notebook performance and up to the new Quadro RTX 5000 GPU, the ConceptD 7 provides true creative freedom, allowing creators to accelerate up to real-time 8K RED video editing and rendering performance on heavy workflows. It’s easy to carry around, at 17.9 mm (0.70 inches) thin and 2.1 kg (4.63 pounds).
The 15.6-inch UHD (3840 x 2160) 4K IPS[i] PANTONE Validated display is built for creators, with a wide color gamut of 100 percent of the Adobe RGB color space and a color accuracy of Delta E <2 for remarkable color precision. Ports include a Thunderbolt™ 3 and MiniDP ports for connecting up to three external displays. It also features Killer DoubleShot™ Pro for a strong and reliable WiFi connection.
