This morning, Acer held its Next@Acer event, detailing its plans for the rest of 2022 and beyond. They covered plans to expand sustainability efforts, such as using post-consumer and ocean-bound plastics in laptops and peripherals as well as creating reusable and fully recyclable packaging. Acer also announced several new laptops and monitors for gamers, business users, and content creators.
The update Driver Acer Aspire Vero there’s a new 14-inch or 15-inch, narrow-border display for more workspace, as well as chassis and components made from post-consumer and marine plastic. Both versions of the Aspire Vero run on Windows 11 and are built with 12th Gen Intel Evo processors for tons of power and battery life to tackle everyday tasks. The touchpad is made with Acer’s Oceanglass, which is made up of plastics bonded to the ocean, for a smoother feel and better responsiveness.
Acer also announced that packaging for the Aspire Vero will also be more sustainable, with reuse and recycling in mind. The outer box can be converted into a larger storage container or, our favorite idea, a cat bed. Internal packaging pieces can be used as laptop stands for better airflow and cooling as well as improved typing posture.
To start your vegetable seeds, you can even use the inner packaging as a biodegradable planter. Water-based inks will also be used for package printing to reduce the chance of harmful chemicals entering the environment.
Veriton AIO computer
Along with the Aspire Vero, Acer announced the Veriton AIO PC, which includes a keyboard and mouse made from post-consumer plastics and built with Windows 11 and the latest 12th Gen Intel Core i9 processor. It has a 5MP IR webcam that works with Windows Hello for facial recognition login as well as an Nvidia GeForce MC550 graphics card for content creation and graphic design work. The Veriton Vero AIO is intended for businesses looking for a greener PC for their offices, although it’s also a great choice for home use.
Acers Vero keyboards and mice also received a slight upgrade, providing up to 18 months of use on a single AA battery; which, in addition to the post-consumer and ocean plastics that form part of their construction, helps to reduce your impact on the environment by reducing the number of used batteries that end up in landfills. And these peripherals have the durability to match their durability.
All Vero keyboards are verified for up to 5 million keystrokes, and Vero Mice are rated for up to 1 million clicks. This means you won’t have to worry about throwing them out in the middle of an important project.
Acer’s new Vero monitors were also featured at the press conference, offering a more friendly option for both businesses and home users for displays. Both the Vero B247YG and Vero CB273 are made from 85% post-consumer and 5% ocean bound plastics and feature 100% recyclable and reusable packaging.
With 24 and 27 inch sizes to choose from, you can get a great display that fits your desk perfectly and at the same time help make your office a little more environmentally friendly.
Acer also announced the expansion of the Vero product line to include a projector, a mini version of the Veriton Vero PC, and the TravelMate Vero laptop. Acer also announced that they would be expanding their line Vero laptop bags consider traditional backpacks made with post-consumer plastics for a greener option when traveling with your laptop.
The Swift 3
Acer representative Michael then introduced the update Swift 3. It features a 2880 x 1800 resolution OLED screen capable of producing up to 100% of the DCI-P3 color gamut for incredible detail, color volume, and contrast perfect for entertainment as well as daily work. The Swift 3 is also Intel Evo certified for all-day battery life so you can work without worry.
A 12th Gen Intel Core H series processor provides all the power you need for streaming and typical work, and the 14-inch display has slim bezels and a 16:10 aspect ratio for more workspace and visibility while you’re watching on videos or editing photos. The screen also features Eyesafe blue light filters to reduce eye strain and fatigue during long days of looking at your laptop.
The Swift 3 OLED even has an Acer Oceanglass touchpad to help remove ocean-bound plastics from the environment and make more of Acer’s laptop more eco-friendly.
Acer then shifted gears, introducing two new portable monitors designed for 3D content creators and commercial spaces. The IS SpatialLabs View and SpatialLabs View Pro They were created to provide the best 4K visuals for two-dimensional art as well as 2K detail for stereoscopic 3D viewing. Each 15.6-inch monitor is capable of producing stereoscopic 3D images without the need for additional glasses or viewing equipment, so artists can work in 2D in their favorite programs and then explore their work in 3D on one of the View monitors.
SpatialLabs View series monitors have integrated batteries rated for up to 5 hours of use on a full charge, so you don’t need to stay tethered to your desk to create 3D models or animations; it’s great news for mobile or freelance designers and creators who may need to bring a monitor to off-site client meetings.
The View Series screens are compatible with Maya and Blender, and Datasmith file formats to support more 3D creation software in the future. SpatialLabs’ Model Viewer mode integrates with Sketchfab to give creators access to nearly 1 million 3D library assets to practice with or integrate into projects. Acer has also launched the Spatial Labs developer site, which gives creators all the tools and tips they need to integrate Unreal Engine projects with the stereoscopic 3D technology of the View series monitors.
The View Pro monitor features a VESA mounting configuration for commercial display options in businesses, schools or hospitals; Acer highlighted AI-powered customer service and conferencing applications for businesses to streamline customer experiences.
And Acer’s SpatialLab 3D technology isn’t just for businesses and creators. The company has integrated stereoscopic 3D capabilities into theirs new Predator Helios 300 SpatialLabs Edition laptop. The laptop uses a pair of eye-tracking sensors to create the stereoscopic 3D effect without the need for special glasses or VR headsets. The 15-inch display provides 4K resolution in 2D mode and 2K resolution per eye in 3D mode for the best possible viewing experience. The screen has a low-quality, gaming-grade 60Hz refresh rate, but that’s to protect the integrity of the stereoscopic 3D video feed; anything higher would result in screen tearing, increased lag, and an overall rather disappointing experience.
The laptop is powered by an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 graphics card, 12th Gen Intel Core i9 CPU, up to 32GB of DDR5 RAM, Windows 11, and can be configured with multiple M.2 SSD cards for plenty of storage as well with faster startup. and game loading times. It also has a 5th generation Acer AeroBlade cooling fan configuration to better draw waste heat from sensitive components under heavy load to keep everything running at optimal temperatures.
The CPU also has Liquid Metal thermal paste to transfer waste heat from the processor to heatsinks, cooling fans, and liquid cooling systems. The Predator Helios 300 SpatialLabs Edition supports 50 AAA titles for stereoscopic 3D viewing, and Acer has introduced the SpatialLabs True Game tool for gamers to cross-check their library against supported titles and even get a sneak peek at the what she would look like in 3D.
While Acer hasn’t mentioned any pricing or release dates for any of their new products, ZDNet they will monitor their brand position and provide updates when that information becomes available.
