The Eye on Taiwan news staff

Taiwan’s major computer maker Acer has won 12 iF Design Awards for design excellence of its products in this year’s competition organized by iF International Forum Design GmbH.

Among them, Predator gaming device, software and packaging designs led the way for Acer with six awards including the Predator Orion 9000 desktop, Predator Triton 700 notebook, Predator X27 monitor, Predator X34P monitor, and PredatorSense software and Predator Gaming Gadget packaging design, according to Acer.

The other award winners from Acer include the Acer Swift 7 notebook, Aspire S 24 all-in-one desktop, VG0 series gaming monitor, Holo360 and Vision360 cameras, and Pawbo Wagtag pet tracker, Acer said in a press statement.

The iF Design Award is organized annually by the world’s oldest independent design organization, Hannover-based iF International Forum Design GmbH. Since 1953, designers, manufacturers and users have looked to iF as a sign of good design. The 63-member jury, made up of independent experts from all over the world, judged over 6,400 entries from 54 countries vying to receive the seal of quality.

“We are delighted to be able to take home 12 iF Design Awards as it recognizes the outstanding capabilities and work of our colleagues in Industrial Design and Research & Development to ensure the synergy of form and functionality,” said Tiffany Huang, president of Corporate Marketing, Business Planning and Operations at Acer.

“In addition, our results this year held special significance for us as it is the first time designs pertaining to Predator gaming devices have led the way for Acer with six awards,” she said.

Predator Orion 9000 Gaming Desktop

The commanding aesthetics of the Predator Orion 9000 series feature a black-and-silver spacecraft-like exterior with customizable RGB lighting along the sides of the front bezel. A massive side window panel showcases the striking and powerful interior with a design that keeps electromagnetic interference (EMI) levels in check despite the size of the opening, according to Acer.

Predator Triton 700 Gaming Notebook

The notebook’s svelte 18.9 mm (.74 inch), 2.6kg (5.7-pound) aluminum chassis houses a 15.6-inch FHD IPS display and best-in-class computing technologies for just the right balance of size and performance without sacrificing thermals, features or rigidity. Its understated black chassis features a minimalist design, with straight contours and angular front corners.

Predator X27 Gaming Monitor

The Predator X27 portrays astonishingly vibrant visuals without motion blur thanks to a high 4K (3840×2160) resolution at a 144 Hz refresh rate, a fast 4 ms response time and a 1,000 nit peak brightness with High Dynamic Range (HDR) technology. The chiseled diamond cut, all-metal stand is designed to be very robust to provide stability and ergonomic with adjustable tilt, swivel, and height. 

Predator X34P Gaming Monitor

Gamers will take in the full view with the Predator X34 series monitor via its curved, panoramic 1900R view and ZeroFrame™ design, which rids the display of a bulky bezel for a more viewable screen and less obtrusive borders. Gamers, big or small, will be able to easily find their viewing sweet spot with its ergonomic design featuring tilt, swivel and height adjustment.

PredatorSense

PredatorSense software enables gamers to control and optimize their Predator devices from one central interface, including CPU and GPU usage, as well as customize their system for optimal gaming performance such as defining hotkeys, initiating overclocking as well as adjusting keyboard backlight and accent light settings, and fan speed among others.

Predator Gaming Gadget Packaging

Predator Gadget products utilize a hexagonal geometric structure for packaging. This approach synergizes with the essence of the Predator brand and further delivers in areas of consistency, sophistication and brand expression. Beyond aesthetics and protection of the product, some of the packaging feature added functionality, for example, the packaging of the Predator Galea 500 headset can be used as a headset mount.

Acer Swift 7

At just 8.98 mm thin, the new Swift 7 is an always-connected PC running Windows 10 designed for mobility. The Acer Swift 7’s unmatched slim design is only the beginning of the features on offer. Blazing-fast, built-in Intel® XMM™ 4G LTE connectivity keeps users productive and always-connected, especially useful for professionals who wish to eliminate tedious wireless connection problems on the road so they can stay focused on the task at hand.

Acer Aspire S 24

The Aspire S 24 all-in-one desktop PC is Acer’s slimmest ever, featuring a display with a side profile of only 5.97 mm. The borderless display with black and matte gold color scheme ensures that the device will become a focal point of any home, adding a touch of functional elegance and luxury.

Acer VG0 Gaming Monitor

The Acer VG0 monitor is an entry-level gaming monitor that doesn’t compromise on color accuracy. Equipped with In-Plane Switching technology, VG0 series monitors provide high color accuracy, delivering the best all-round experience for work and play. It supports refresh rates up to 144Hz and Visual Response Boost technology (VRB), which achieves the effect of 1 ms MPRT for clear, blur-free visuals.

Acer 360-Degree Cameras and Pet Tracker

The Acer Holo360 camera combines the power to stitch videos in real-time, integrated LTE connectivity, and a 3-inch touchscreen for operation, to provide an all-in-one solution for shooting and live streaming 360-degree videos. The Acer Vision360 is an in-car camera that captures 360-degree video to ensure that nothing is missed when a traffic incident occurs. The Pawbo Wagtag provides real-time tracking of pets for both indoors and outdoors, and sports unique features such as bark detection, according to Acer.
