The Aspire Predator G7710 is Acer’s second generation extreme gaming PC to fill the demands produced by the growth in the PC market. The range of desktop computers specifically designed for gaming enthusiasts is aimed to further the success of the first generation by offering cutting edge technology.

The Aspire Predator G7710 incorporates the highly overclockable Intel CoreTM i7 processor Extreme Edition specially designed for hard core gaming. Being first to market with this processor late last year, Acer now plan to integrate this technology further across varying product ranges. Intel CoreTM i7 processor Extreme Edition has proven to offer 32% faster processing through All-new Intel CoreTM micro architecture, Intel Dynamic Speed technology and Intel Hyper-Threading technology (4 cores, 8 threads).

Encompassing all the previous favourites of the G7700 such as liquid cooling, hotswappable drives and unique case design, the G7710 now delivers more inspiring high performance graphics using two-way ATI Cross Fire XTM graphics.

The new rig is now even more powerful featuring up to 12GB of DDR3 1066 MHz SDRAM with three-channel support on six DIMMs.

The Aspire Predator G7710 will be sold nationally exclusively through Acer’s authorised retailer, Harvey Norman starting from $4,999 (RRP inc GST).
