IFA 2019 in Berlin is officially underway, and companies are beginning to make their announcements at the event. Acer has unveiled a wide range of new devices, starting with new entries to the ConceptD family, which is aimed at creative professionals. There are six new mobile workstations and one new monitor.
The laptops come with ninth-generation Intel Core H-series processors and Quadro RTX GPUs, though they vary in a few ways.
ConceptD 9 Pro
The star of the show is the ConceptD 9 Pro, which comes with up to an Intel Core i9 processor and Quadro RTX 5000 GPU. It stands out for its design, with the display sitting in a hinge that allows it to be tilted in a number of different positions and even flipped around so you can show your screen to someone else. It has a touchscreen and it includes a Wacom EMR stylus with 4,096 levels of pressure. The display is 17.3 inches and it's 4K (3840x2160), and it's PANTONE certified, covering 100% of the Adobe RGB color space. The computer is part of Nvidia's RTX Studio program, too.
The ConceptD 9 Pro will be available in November in the North America and EMEA regions, starting at €5,499/$5,799. It'll be available in Chine in the fourth quarter starting at ¥49,999.
ConceptD 7 Pro
The ConceptD 7 Pro has a more conventional laptop form factor, but it's a powerful device nonetheless. It has up to an Intel Core i7 processor and Quadro RTX 5000 graphics. The screen is smaller at 15.6 inches, and it doesn't have touch support or come with a pen, but it's still 4K. It's also still PANTONE validated, though Acer isn't saying it covers 100% of the Adobe RGB color gamut. It comes with ConceptD Palette, though, a software that lets users adjust color profiles and onitor system controls. Just like the 9 Pro, it's part of the RTX Studio program.
The ConceptD 7 Pro will be available in North America later this month starting at $2,699, and in the EMEA region in November starting at €2,599. It'll be available in China in Q4 starting at ¥24,999.
ConceptD 5 and 5 Pro
The ConceptD 5 Pro also has up to an Intel Core i7 processor, but it scales back on the GPU, going up to a Quadro RTX 3000. The IPS display is still validated by PANTONE, and it can come in either 15.6 or 17.3-inch variants, both in 4K resolution. It also covers 100% of the Adobe RGB color space. As with the remaining laptops, it's part of the RTX Studio program.
The non-Pro ConceptD 5 swaps out the Quadro GPUs with GeForce ones, up to an RTX 2060.
The ConceptD 5 Pro will be available in October in the EMEA region starting at €2,499 and in December in North America from $1,999. The ConceptD 5 will arrive in September in the EMEA region starting at €1,999, and in December in North America starting at $1,799. They'll both be available in Chine in the fourth quarter starting at ¥15,999 and ¥12,999, respectively.
ConceptD 3 and 3 Pro
The cheapest of the ConceptD Pro lineup makes quite a few sacrifices compared to its siblings. THe display is 15.6 inches diagonally, and it's only Full HD, though it's still validated by PANTONE. It's also the only one in the lineup to not come with Quadro RTX graphics, instead opting for the Quadro T1000. It still comes with up to Intel Core i7 processors, though.
Just like the ConceptD 5, the regular ConceptD 3 drops the Quadro GPU for a GeForce one, this time up to a GTX 1650.
Finally, the ConceptD 3 Pro will be available in both North America and EMEA regions in November for €1,499/$1,699. The regular ConceptD 3 will be available in the EMEA region in October for €1,199, and in North America in November starting at $999. Both will be available in Chine in Q4, starting at ¥8,999 and ¥6,999, respectively.
ConceptD CM2241W monitor
The new ConceptD monitor is a 22-inch display with minimal bezels and Full HD resolution in the 16:10 aspect ratio (1920x1200). As with all ConceptD products, it's PANTONE-validated, and Acer says it covers 99% of the Adobe RGB color space. It also has a 75Hz refresh rate for some extra smoothness.
Pricing and availability for the ConceptD CM2241W monitor weren't announced.
