Acer up­dates gam­ing PC with AMD Ryzen 7 CPU

Business World - - TECHNOLOGY -

ACER Philip­pines on Sept. 11 launched the Acer GX-281, the first pre-as­sem­bled CPU in the coun­try pow­ered by Ad­vanced Mi­cro De­vices’ (AMD’s) nextgen­er­a­tion Ryzen 7 pro­ces­sor.

The new AMD Ryzen 7-pow­ered Acer GX- 281 promises su­per­speed data trans­fer, mas­sive stor­age and ex­pan­sion ca­pa­bil­i­ties, stun­ning 4k res­o­lu­tion vi­su­als, and Qi stan­dard wire­less charg­ing.

The Ryzen 7 pro­ces­sor boosts the GX-281’s per­for­mance fur­ther with 8 CPU cores, 16 Threads, a 3.4GHz base clock speed which may be ex­tended to 3.8GHz, and an Ex­tended Fre­quency Range ( XFR) for pre­mium per­for­mance and pro­ces­sor cool­ing.

“The Ryzen 7 has grown a tena­cious rep­u­ta­tion among gamers and con­tent cre­ators world­wide for its ex­cep­tional pro­cess­ing power and sur­pris­ing af­ford­abil­ity,” said AMD di­rec­tor of Con­sumer Sales for APJ, Peter Cham­bers. “We’ve al­ways been com­mit­ted to in­no­vat­ing so­lu­tions to meet our cus­tomer’s needs, which we share with Acer Philip­pines in the launch of this new prod­uct.”

Sport­ing an im­pres­sive eight cores each with Si­mul­ta­ne­ous Multi-Thread­ing ( SMT), the Ryzen 7 boasts a 52% im­prove­ment in in­struc­tions per clock ver­sus AMD’s pre­vi­ous best which means it is able to process more clock for clock. The Ryzen 7 also plat­forms sin­glethreaded per­for­mance that heavy PC users such as gamers and con­tent cre­ators will surely en­joy not just for its pow­er­ful pro­cess­ing abil­ity, also but its af­ford­abil­ity.

The Acer GX 281 comes in two vari­ants: GX 281 Ryzen 5 ( P74,999) features Radeon RX 580, 8 GB DDR4, and 256 GB SSD plus 1 TB HDD, while the GX 281 Ryzen 7 (P96,499) features Radeon RX 580, 16 GB DDR4, and 256 GB SSD plus 1 TB HDD.
