Acer renews its ConceptD laptops with new Intel CPUs and Nvidia GPUs. The ConceptD 5 and the Pro variant also get a new screen. It is a 16 “panel with a 16:10 ratio and a resolution of 3072×1920 pixels.
The screen of the ConceptD 5 and ConceptD 5 Pro is calibrated and can, according to Acer, display one hundred percent of the DCI-P3 color space. Acer uses a 16 “panel with a resolution of 3072×1920 pixels. Apple uses a panel with the same characteristics in its MacBook Pro. No laptops from other manufacturers have yet appeared with such a panel. The 16:10 laptops from Lenovo and LG have a 16 “panel with a resolution of 2560×1600 pixels.
It is the first time in a long time that Acer has a laptop with a 16:10 screen in its range again. At the beginning of this year, Acer already indicated that such screens would be used again. Other manufacturers are also increasingly opting for a 16:10 screen.
The renewed ConceptD 5 gets Intel Tiger Lake-H processors and a maximum RTX 3060 GPU. The Pro version can be equipped with an Nvidia RTX A5000 GPU. There is a maximum of 64GB DDR4 memory in the laptop and an SSD up to 2TB. The housing is made entirely of metal, has two USB-C ports with Thunderbolt 4 and an HDMI 2.1 connection. The touchpad is finished with Gorilla Glass and has a built-in fingerprint scanner.
Acer will release the renewed ConceptD 5 in August for a price of at least 2499 euros. It is not yet known what specifications that model has. The price of the Pro version is also not yet known. Acer is also updating its ConceptD 7 Ezel and ConceptD 3 Ezel. They will receive new CPUs and GPUs, and will be released at the end of this year, for unknown prices.
