(Tech Mainstream) The Acer ConceptD 9 Pro described in one word is extraordinary. Whether you work in 2D or 3D work, the ConceptD 9 Pro is loaded with a 9th Gen Intel®Core™ i9 Processor, NVIDIA® Quadro RTX™ 5000 Graphics, 4K UHD resolution, RAM / SSD 32GB / 2TB DDR4-26661 / NVME1, IPS Panel and a 17.3-inch Touchscreen. The ConceptD 9 Pro is available at the Acer store for $5799.99

Design, In and Out

The ConceptD 9 Pro's authentic writing and sketching experience is enhanced with the Wacom® EMR pen: "Enjoy unsurpassed usability and fast, accurate control with 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity. Design from scratch, take quick notes, or highlight key areas during concept discussions—the freedom is yours."

The ConceptD 9 Pro not only sports a unique design, but also gives users flexibilty with "two CNC-machined Ezel™ Aero Hinges grip the screen in a tight embrace, ready to become whatever tool the moment demands, with four modes to choose from: notebook, Ezel™, display, or stand."

The ConceptD 9 Pro can handle the most demanding creations, "NVIDIA® Quadro RTX™ graphics cards are bringing real-time ray tracing and AI to the applications you use every day. Whether you’re doing complex 3D CAD modelling and visualization, simulating intensive engineering projects, or creating feature-length film, you’ll have the power to do what you do - better and faster."

Data transfer is facilitated by ThunderBolt™ 3 port, a USB-C™ port which "delivers transfer speeds of up to 40Gbps, USB charging, and DisplayPort over USB-C, while also allowing you to connect to multiple 4K displays."

Audio, Work and Play

Work in peace when using the ConceptD 9 Pro since a quiet environment is vital when you’re focusing on an important piece of design. With features such as Bionic Design, Ultra-thin Blades and Noise Reduction, "the latest generation’s design is optimized for noise reduction even when the CPU is running at full capacity, meaning the laptop doesn’t disturb others even in the quietest spaces."

For fun time, the ConceptD 9 Pro can "turn any pair of headphones into a high-end 360° surround sound system, enabling you to experience your favorite movies, music, and games with real-world 3D sound." Exceptional sound is achieved by Waves MaxxAudio®, MaxxBass® and MaxxDialog™ technologies.

Fully Approved

For further proof that the ConceptD 9 Pro is ideal and approved for designers, engineers and others is the proclamation: "To meet the demands of engineers, architects, videographers, cinematographers, 3D animators, AI professionals and many more, a hardware solution that has been tested and certified by Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) is demanded. ConceptD products, in specific model configurations, offer ISV certified hardware in combination with the most recent technologies."
