Acer has announced the ConceptD range of desktops, notebooks and monitors is now available in the Australian market.

The ConceptD range comprises of high-performance devices that are optimised for the creative industries, giving users the colour accuracy, high performance, memory space and refresh rates they need to embrace the creative process and build remarkable things.

They are also equipped with efficient thermal solutions to minimise noise and have a clean, timeless design that is practical and ergonomic.

“Bringing ConceptD to Australia is an exciting milestone for Acer as it marks a new chapter in the solutions we deliver to the local market,” says Acer Oceania managing director Darren Simmons.

“While Acer continues to innovate and have a strong presence across gaming, education, commercial and thin-and-light categories, we saw a clear opportunity to expand our offering with a range tailor-made for creators and their unique needs.

“The creative industries are integral to the economy, having contributed $111.7 billion to Australia in 2016-17 according to the Bureau of Communications and Arts Research (BCAR). As ConceptD devices are equipped with high-performance processors and graphics that can handle extreme workloads, they are designed to enable creators to bring their ideas to life more effectively and further drive these outcomes.

The ConceptD laptops and monitors feature a pixel-packed 4K UHD display backed up by several colour technologies.

They also feature integrated colour correction and has demonstrated superior fidelity in reproducing the PANTONE Matching System (PMS) Colours.

With a 100% Adobe RGB colour gamut, colours will be brighter and more accurate due to extending the colour range of cyan-green hues. The Adobe RGB gamut covers a wider range of colours than an sRGB gamut.

The ConceptD range of products has been tested and calibrated to achieve a low Delta E average of <1 to <2 to reproduce true-to-life colour accuracy

Equipped with NVIDIA GeForce RTX graphics cards, the ConceptD devices are bringing real-time ray tracing and AI to the applications creators use for designing digital assets.

Breakthrough GPU technologies combined with the new NVIDIA RTX architecture allow creators to work at the speed of their imagination – creating and refining realistic and immersive experiences much faster than with CPUs.

The ConceptD range now available in Australia includes the ConceptD 7 and ConceptD 9 notebooks, Concept CP3 and Concept CP7 monitors and the ConceptD 500 desktop.
