Acer’s Predator Thronos is THE gaming throne

Nothing can prepare you for this
Acer Predator Thronos

Just as it does at its Global Press Conference (GPC) events, Acer announced a bunch of stuff at IFA 2018, in Berlin. This includes some tantalising hardware in its Predator and Nitro gaming portfolio. Nothing will quite prepare you for the Predator Thronos though – an insane gaming chair that’s really gamer’s dream… cave?

You have to hand it to Acer though. The company does take risks. Remember the USD9,000 Predator 21X gaming notebook? Well, multiply that by 10, at least.

The Predator Thronos is a 220kg hunk of metal and steel that’s 1.5 metres tall. It integrates an ergonomic gaming seat and motorised foot rest, and the “cabin” reclines up to 140 degrees. The overhead brace allows you to mount up to three 27-inch monitors and it has space for a Predator gaming PC.

It’s pretty menacing and wouldn’t look out-of-place in a sci-fi movie.

The cool thing is, the chair vibrates in sync with games that you’re playing, making it a more immersive experience. Unfortunately, there are no built-in speakers, so Acer expects you to plug it a pair of Predator gaming headset for maximum impact.

It’s really pure indulgence this one. I mean I’d love to have one at home. Everyone needs a cave. Even Batman has one.

The bad news is, you won’t be able to buy one even if you wanted to. Acer has yet to reveal pricing nor a release date of its epic cockpit.

Together with the Thronos, Acer also announced two 27-inch monitors, one each from the Predator and Nitro camp. The Predator XB273K is a 3840×2160 G-Sync display with 144Hz refresh rate and DisplayHDR 400 certification, which will be available in Q4 starting at USD1,299.


Next, the Nitro XV273K, a 4K UHD monito with 144Hz refresh rate, DisplayHDR 400 certification and AMD Radeon FreeSync support. It will be available in Q4 starting at USD899.
