Acer has released a new version of its Predator Orion 3000 gaming desktop powered by 10th-generation Intel Core i5 and Core i7 chips.

Prices start at $999 for the base variant, and the desktop will be available for purchase this August.

Acer has released a new version of its Predator Orion 3000 gaming desktop. Unlike the newly-announced Nitro Predator 9000, it aims to offer a balanced gaming experience with slightly more down to earth hardware. It is an attractive buy for people looking for a pre-built PC on a budget.

The new version of the Acer Nitro Predator 3000 comes with 10th-generation Intel Core i5 and Core i7 CPUs. Acer hasn't mentioned the exact model numbers yet, but we should know more about it in the coming days. One can choose between a wide range of GPUs such as the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 Super, RTX 2060 Super, RTX 2060, GTX 1660 Super, and GTX 1650.

The Acer Nitro Predator 3000 supports up to 64GB of DDR4 RAM. It can accommodate up to two 3.5-inch hard drives and two NVMe SSDs. Miscellaneous expansion hardware can be added via the PCIe x16 and M.2 ports. It also supports 802.11 b/g/n/ac/ax Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, and gigabit ethernet.

The older Acer Nitro Predator 3000 didn't let users add a tempered glass side panel. However, it is possible to customize your case with one this time around. Despite its somewhat competitive price, the desktop still features two 120mm Predator FrostBlade ARGB fans and lighting strips that run across the front of the case.

The Acer Predator Orion 3000 will be available in North America in September, starting at $999. Alternatively, it will cost €899 in Europe and will be up for grabs this August.

I've been an avid PC gamer since the age of 8. My passion for gaming eventually pushed me towards general tech, and I've been a stereotypical 'nerd' ever since. I have a degree in mechanical engineering and have worked in the manufacturing industry. When I'm not writing news on Notebookcheck, you can find me playing or watching an intense match of DOTA 2
