Acer has announced the availability of its newcover gaming series consisting of the Predator 15 (G9-591) and Predator 17. The notebooks were presented at IFA 2015 and will start at a hefty 1800 Euros. All images, details, and technical information on the Predator series can be found in our IFA overview.

The brand-new high-end gaming notebooks from Acer will sport up to a Core i7-6700HQ with GTX 980M or 970M graphics and up to 64 GB of DDR4 RAM. The notebooks will don Black and Red coloring with LED designs to distinguish them from "regular" Ultrabooks or multimedia notebooks.

Outside of the CPU and GPU, the Predator series will have fast NVMe SSDs of up to 512 GB, USB 3.1 Type-C with Thunderbolt 3 support, and fast network connectivity with Killer DoubleShot Pro Ethernet and WiFi. The speakers will also be of higher quality than what Acer has been offering on its other notebooks.

The Predator series will face off directly against the renowned Asus ROG series, Alienware series, MSI G series, and Clevo barebones. It remains to be seen if Acer can match or exceed the excellent quality of these enthusiast-level gaming notebooks.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
