An all-new ConceptD Monitor - CM2241W - was also unveiled
Acer announced the ConceptD Pro notebook family today which house NVIDIA Quadro GPUs and are powered by 9th Gen Intel Core Processors. The Notebooks also have Windows 10 support. The company claims that these notebooks are built to ensure peak performance and long battery life.
The Notebooks house amber backlit keyboards, following ConceptD’s design aesthetic. Acer also announced the new CM2241W ConceptD monitor, which is an addition to the company’s PANTONE-Validated monitors lineup, specially catered for creators.
This series of Notebooks, under the RTX Studio laptop program, are one of the first notebooks to support real-time ray tracing and cutting-edge AI capabilities, according to the company. Jerry Kao, Co-COO at Acer states that their NVIDIA Quadro GPU notebooks are extremely suitable for their professional and enterprise customers. He says, “Combined with the power of 9th Gen Intel Core processors, these powerful workhorses will help creators focus on being creators whether in the office or on-the-go”.
The company claims that the notebooks can help creators design complex 3D animations, edit high-res videos or conduct virtual walkthroughs of building designs since the Quatro RTX GPUs are capable of computing such intricate computing tasks, according to Bob Pette, Vice President of Professional Visualization at NVIDIA.
ConceptD 9 Pro
The ConceptD 9 Pro sits comfortably as the most premium Pro series Notebook and comes along with Acer’s CNC-machined Ezel Aero Hinge which allows the display to flip around, extend and recline as per the user’s personal or collaborative needs.
