Computex 2018 is happening next week and many companies will be showing off new, upcoming hardware and today Acer announced what it will bring to the show. Among the systems being displayed will be the Predator Helios 500 (PH517-61), which is the version of the gaming laptop with up to an AMD Ryzen 7 2700 CPU and Radeon RX Vega 56 that was discovered earlier this week. In addition to the AMD hardware inside, the laptop also has five hotkeys that can have customized macros assigned to them through the PredatorSense application. For audio the laptop has two speakers, a subwoofer, Acer TrueHarmony and Waves MaxxAudio to deliver high quality sound while Waves Nx head tracking offers makes the 3D audio experience even more realistic.

There will also be two desktops at the show, with one being the Predator Orion 5000 (P0O5-100) that offers up to an AMD Ryzen 7 2700X CPU on the B450 chipset and up to an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 for the GPU. The case of the Orion 5000 has a transparent side panel to proudly display its components, and its panels are easy to open so you can easily change out components and cables. It also features IceTunnel 2.0 airflow management that creates thermal zones within it so each sector has its own path for heat to be expelled.

The Acer Nitro 50 (N50-100) desktop is designed to be more for casual gameplay at an affordable price with up to a Radeon RX 580 or NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 for the GPU. You can still get up to the Ryzen 7 2700X though, which is a CPU that is a bit better than what you need casual gaming.

Though the specifications, availability, and pricing can vary between regions, we do have this information for these products. The Predator Helios 500 (PH517-61) will be available in North America in August at a starting price of $2199 while the EMEA region will see it released in July starting at €1,999. China will get it in August starting at ¥25,999. Both the Predator Orion 5000 (PO5-100) and Acer Nitro (N50-100) will be in North America in September starting at $1499.99 and $899.99 respectively. We can expect more products than these to be at Acer's Computex 2018 booth. If you are in Taipei during the show, Acer will have locations in the city where the public can go to try out Acer gaming PCs and gear, and even compete against celebrity gamers the company will have that the show.
