In July Acer joined Intel, Microsoft, and NVIDIA at the ChinaJoy show in Shanghai, Asia’s largest gaming and digital entertainment exhibition, to showcase its latest gaming devices and promote its sponsorship of Intel Extreme Masters (IEM) Shanghai.
At the ChinaJoy show, Acer representatives made an appearance at the Intel booth to introduce the latest Predator devices and celebrate the company’s sponsorship of IEM Shanghai as the official desktop PC and notebook provider. A number of elite StarCraft players that were to compete in IEM Shanghai made a surprise visit to the booth, stirring up much excitement among the audience.
Acer also showcased Predator products at NVIDIA’s booth, where the 4K Predator X27 monitor thrilled the media and gamers alike. Over at the Microsoft booth, Acer showed off its Mixed Realty head-mounted display (HMD). Throughout the duration of the show, Acer provided MR content developers with a preferential purchase price for gaming PC to help promote the development of MR content in China.
StarVR, a joint venture between Acer and StarBreeze, also publically exhibited the StarVR HMD in China for the very first time at the show.
