Electronics company Acer is taking aim at extreme gamers with its new Predator Orion 9000 gaming PC, presented at the recent IFA electronics fair in Berlin, Germany 

The device can be kitted out with an Intel Core i9 Extreme Edition 18-core processor, up to two NVIDIA GTX 1080i graphics cards, and up to 128GB of quad-channel DDR4 memory. It even has wheels – just as well, given the weight of all the equipment that's been packed into it.

There's also built-in liquid cooling and an airflow management system, dubbed the Ice Tunnel, to regulate temperature. Users can add more fans for ventilation as well as LED lighting to illuminate almost all components.

For quick access to the components, there's a transparent flap on the side, while a metal mesh shields the computer from electromagnetic interferences.

According to Acer, prices will start at around US$2,000 (RM8,400), but could end up being much higher, depending on the equipment chosen. The device is scheduled for release in late 2017.  — dpa
