ConceptD, Acer’s new brand of desktops, notebooks, monitors, and Windows Mixed Reality headset marks a new chapter for creativity.
“The ConceptD product portfolio was conceived to give creators the tools to focus on the creative process and make beautiful things,” said Jerry Kao, Co-COO, Acer Inc. “As the foundation of a full line of creator products, we’ve designed PCs with high-performance processors and graphics that can handle extreme workloads, and put them inside quiet, minimalist designs to inspire creators to unleash their creativity.”
“Intel continues to champion the needs of creators in their PCs by delivering the premium performance and platform technologies needed to speed workflows and enable their best,” said Chris Walker, Vice President and General Manager, Client Computing Group, Intel. “Across notebook and desktop form factors, and capability from 9th Gen Intel Core i7 and i9 along with Intel Xeon processors, ConceptD from Acer is a prime example of combining design, features and peripherals to deliver PCs to meet the highest demands for content creation at all levels.”

“With our new Creator Ready Drivers, the NVIDIA Quadro RTX series GPUs will help creators accelerate their workflows on Acer’s ConceptD PCs,” said Sandeep Gupte, Director of Professional Visualization marketing at NVIDIA Corp. “Combined with the reliability of the Quadro GPU platform, Acer’s creator-optimized PCs will help creators focus on letting their creativity flow.”
ConceptD 900 – A Creator’s Dream Machine
The ConceptD 900 stays cool while running compute-intensive applications such as rendering and video production through a thermal design that uses six cooling fans to draw air in through the triangular patterned front air panel, circulating it throughout the chassis. The ConceptD 900 features a wiry matte-black metal chassis with an amber LED accent on the power button for a sleek professional look appreciated by minimalists.
ConceptD 500 – Performance Desktop for Designers
Powered by the latest 9th Gen Intel® Core™ i9-9900K processor with 8 cores, 16 threads and reaching up to 5GHz, creator tools and projects run faster, smoother, and more stably on the ConceptD 500. Its multiple CPU cores achieve high single-core speed while staying cool with low heat output and low power consumption. With GPUs including up to the NVIDIA Quadro RTX 4000 GPUs1, it supports four 5K displays (5120x2880 @ 60Hz) with HDR color, making visual effects, motion graphics, and animation rendering a breeze.
The ConceptD 500 is an expandable desktop designed to grow with users to meet ever-changing workload requirements. With four DIMM slots for up to 64GB 2666 MHz DDR4 memory, it has more bandwidth and capacity for fast performance when working on complex design tasks. The onboard PCIe M.2 NVMe SSD allows for large models and complex 3D rendering in real time.
Optimal thermal ventilation through three cooling fans draw air in through the triangular front air panel, circulating it throughout the ConceptD 500’s chassis. And yet, at a noise level of 40dB, it is still silent enough to be unobtrusive.
The ConceptD 500’s tower features a white finish and smooth curves for a minimalist-inspired design. The compact tower fits in almost any working space, and the top-side features a woodgrain-inspired pattern. Customers can fast-charge modern Qi-compatible devices wirelessly, and the headset cradle uses a thoughtful push pop-out design that gives the freedom to use and tuck it away when not in use.
ConceptD Series Silenced Notebooks for Inspiring Creativity
ConceptD 9 - For Demanding High-end 3D Creations
Featuring up to an all new 9th Gen Intel Core i9 mobile processor, the ConceptD 9 has the power and performance to smoothly run multiple creator tools simultaneously. With NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 graphics, users can accelerate real time video editing or 3D rendering applications, leaving more time to create. It also delivers accelerated ray tracing so renderers can review lifelike graphics as they are created. The GeForce RTX GPU lets users save time and focus on creativity by accelerating AI features to boost quality and handle tedious time-consuming tasks. Creators can work natively with up to 8K RAW files on the video timeline without dropping frames, pre-caching, or generating proxies. RTX graphics also bring fluid interactivity with large 3D models from the 50 percent performance improvement in raster performance over previous-generation GPUs.
With up to 32GB of DDR4 memory at 2666MHz and two 512GB M.2 PCIe NVMe SSDs in RAID 0, creators can store projects and numerous videos, and access large files without needing to fumble with multiple external hard drives.
ConceptD 7 – Up to Real-time 6K RED Video Editing and Rendering Performance
ConceptD 5 - Go Create!
For creators, color accuracy is critical for design, and the ConceptD 5 doesn’t disappoint with its 4K UHD PANTONE Validated display. The narrow 6.2 mm bezels give creators more screen to work with and a 100 percent Adobe RGB color gamut and color accuracy of Delta E <2 to ensure faithful color reproduction. With up to 16GB of DDR4 memory and up to 1TB of responsive NVMe PCIe SSD storage in RAID 0 helps lets users create more. Creators can type comfortably in any environment with the warm amber glow of the backlit keyboard.
ConceptD OJO Windows Mixed Reality Headset for Creators
The headset’s unique detachable design makes it easy to clean and share among multiple users (family and friends, or in a business environment). The head strap provides a snug yet comfortable fit to keep the headset firmly in place. The ConceptD OJO’s integrated audio system focuses sound on the ears, eliminating the need for headphones, and the patented IPD technology ensures the display is set at the optimal distance from the wearer’s eyes. It’s easy to set up with inside-out tracking and 6 degrees of freedom positional tracking.
ConceptD Monitors for Creators
The ConceptD CM7321K is a 32-inch monitor ideal for 2D creators.
