Game on: Acer Predator 8 now available to pre-order, ships later this week
posted by Florin T. / Nov 11, 2015, 6:14 PM
The Predator 8 has an unusual design that reminds us of Alienware's laptops, its standout elements being the 4 red font-facing speakers (with surround sound).
Powered by a quad-core Intel Atom Z8700 procesor clocked at 1.6 GHz (with Turbo Boost up to 2.4 GHz), the new Acer slate sports an 8-inch IPS display with 1920 x 1200 pixels and tactile feedback, and runs Android Lollipop - though we assume that an update to Android 6.0 Marshmallow will be available in the near future. Other features include a 2 MP front-facing camera, a 5 MP rear camera, 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of expandable storage space, and a 4550 mAh battery. The tablet also comes with Predator MediaMaster, a feature that lets users customize their video and audio settings in search for better gaming and multimedia experiences.
The Acer Predator 8 costs $299.99. Mind you, this is a Wi-Fi-only tablet, and we don't know if Acer is planning to release a 3G/LTE variant of it. Any buyers here?

Not sure why they're marketing a tablet with 2 gb of ram to gamers. That seems very misleading

The Atom X7 Z8700 GPU is the HD Graphics (Cherry Trail). If you want to know more about the SoC, you can go to this link:http://www.notebookcheck.net/I

At this price tag I'm trying to find something wrong with this, plus it just simply looks awesome

The body looks good for a gaming style tablet but the gaming performance is weaker than the S805 so.....

the Tegra X1 should draw circles around this SoC. I suggest people wait for the Sheild Tablet2, which will be in the same price range.
