Acer announced support for the latest NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 30 Series GPUs across its portfolio of Predator Orion gaming desktops. It also announced more details for the Predator X25, a 360 Hz gaming monitor that features NVIDIA G-SYNC® and NVIDIA’s new Reflex Latency Analyzer.
The new NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 Series GPUs, the 2nd generation of RTX, features new RT Cores, Tensor Cores and streaming multiprocessors, bringing stunning visuals, amazingly fast frame rates, and AI acceleration to games and creative applications. Powered by the NVIDIA Ampere architecture, which delivers increases of up to 1.9X performance-per-watt over the previous generation, the RTX 30 Series effortlessly powers graphics experiences at all resolutions, even up to 8K at the top end. The GeForce RTX 3090, 3080, and 3070 represent the greatest GPU generational leap in the history of NVIDIA.
“Acer is excited to be among the first to offer the latest NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 Series GPUs on desktops with our Predator Orion gaming series,” said Jeff Lee, General Manager, Stationary Computing, IT Products Business, Acer Inc. “For gamers that demand the latest breakthroughs in performance, the Predator desktops with the latest GPUs will support them to game at their best.”

This powerful 24.5-inch 1920×1080 IPS gaming monitor boasts an incredible 360 Hz refresh rate to give players ultra-low latency and the smoothest possible animations. This rate translates into game frames being displayed once every 2.8 milliseconds, offering a significant advantage in competitive shooters where precision counts. This fluidity means it feels great to play on the Predator X25, while 99% coverage of the sRGB spectrum means that games look incredible, too. Featuring the latest NVIDIA G-SYNC technology, this bleeding-edge monitor is packed with everything needed to keep up with NVIDIA’s latest GPUs.
NVIDIA Reflex Latency Analyzer is a revolutionary system latency measurement tool integrated in new Predator X25 360Hz NVIDIA G-SYNC gaming displays arriving this Fall. PC performance for competitive gaming is about responsiveness—how quickly your display updates after mouse clicks or movements. The Reflex Latency Analyzer detects clicks coming from the mouse and then measures the time it takes for the resulting pixels (i.e. a gun muzzle flash) to change on screen. This type of measurement has been virtually impossible for gamers to do before now, requiring over $7000 in specialized high-speed cameras and equipment. Reflex Latency Analyzer provides a much more complete and accurate understanding of mouse, PC, and display performance. Now with Reflex Latency Analyzer, gamers can start a match with confidence, knowing their system is operating exactly as it should be.
