In February, Acer showed new gaming products through its Predator series. At the time, the details were somewhat scarce, especially with the Predator plate, two laptops, and large desktop PC. The company promised more details at Computex, but as the show came and went, still did not receive sufficient information on the Predator line. Finally, at Gamescom, the company revealed specifications Predator desktop PC, named the G6-710.
The “Fighting Machine Unstoppable” is powered by a new processor Intel Skylake, specifically the i7-6700K. Acer also implemented some techniques for CPU overclocking, curiously called the “One-Punch” to go along with the cooling system IceTunnel to keep temperatures inside the box. There is also software for the center of the PredatorSense control, which controls the clock speed, temperature, fan speed and internal lighting. However, internal lighting does not make much sense because both parties consist of a mesh grille.

Furthermore, Acer said that the CPU and GPU are subject to depending on the model you choose changes, hinting at some customization options when it hits the market G6-710.
