Acer releases new Predator Space heater

Improved specs mentioned but nothing on cooling

| Computer Systems News | Posted: Jul 31, 2009 2:58 pm

Well, well, well; Acer is going to have another go at releasing the Predator. This is the same system that had massive cooling problems earlier this year.

 

By massive we mean that some were reported to have actually caught fire.
So now they are going to put even more heat generating hardware in the box and stuff it inside that nice eye catching orange case.

 

The new specs are looking like;
Core i7-950 @ 3.06GHz CPU
6GB of DDR3 RAM (up to 12GB)
Intel X58 Express Chipset (board manufacturer not mentioned)
1TB SATA HDD @ 7200rpm
2x Nvidia GeForce GTS 250 1GB,
Blu-ray disc drive
11x USB 2.0 ports
2x eSATA ports
Multi-card reader
Two Gigabit Ethernet

 

I hope they upped the cooling in this system first.
