Acer Predator 8 Malaysia

Killer Power, Killer Looks

The Acer Predator 8 packs a mean set of specifications under its hood, but it does not stop there. To match its powerful internals, the Acer Predator 8 gaming tablet sports a killer design all around. On the back of the tablet you will find one of the most angular designs a rear tablet case could ever have. Made entirely out of aluminum, the rear of the Acer Predator 8 sports sharp striking angles with bright crimson accents, signifying that this tablet is serious business when it comes to mobile entertainment.

At the top and bottom of the Acer Predator 8 are two soft-touch grip pads that offer the user a better grip on the device during intense gaming sessions. These grip pads also feature haptic motors built in them to give the gamer vibration feedback when they are racing down the circuit or unloading a hailstorm of bullets.

The gorgeous color-accurate display

On the front of the striking Acer Predator 8 sits its gorgeous Full HD display. Its an 8-inch display that displays incredibly vibrant colors and brightness even under sunlight. It also comes equipped with Acer's very own' Predator ColorBlast technology that gives your games and media an amazing 100% NTSC color gamut, meaning that it displays all colors accurately. The tablet even comes with the Predator MediaMaster application which lets you tweak audio and video settings to your own preferences.

Speakers? Predator Quadio quad-speakers

When it comes to audio output, the Predator 8 does it like no other tablet has ever done it before. Instead of having a tinny little mono speaker at the back or bottom, the Acer Predator 8 takes it to a whole other level with not one, not two, but four speakers.

At the four corners of the gaming tablet sits four crimson tablets that Acer has dubbed it as the Predator Quadio array of four powerful speakers. The speakers are also smart in the sense that when you rotate the speakers in another directions, the stereo output will also switch to ensure that your sound is always coming from the right direction.

Intel Inside

Powering the Acer Predator 8 and keeping all of your games incredibly immersive and fluid is an Intel Atom X7 processor and the integrated Intel HD Graphics. The powerful Atom processor keeps all processes in your tablet blazing fast, regardless of whether you are gaming or just browsing the web.
