Taiwanese computer manufacturer Acer has officially announced the launch of its two new range of desktop computers that are based on the newly launched Intel’s third-generation Ivy Bridge processors. Acer has even started shipping the desktops that are among the first PCs available with Ivy Bridge.
The new range of Acer desktops are Acer Predator AG3620 and Acer Gateway D4860-UR14P. Both these computer systems have Quad Core i5 and i7 processors, which are among the new Ivy Bridge chips. Acer will also introduce laptops and ultrabooks with new Core processors in the coming weeks and months, according to a company spokeswoman.
Currently, PCs come with Intel's second-generation Core processors code-named Sandy Bridge, which were introduced in early 2011. According to Acer, various tests prove that Ivy Bridge processors can provide more than a 20% CPU performance improvement over Sandy Bridge, and 30% better graphics performance. The desktops will come with discrete graphics chips options from NVIDIA and Advanced Micro Devices to enhance the graphics performance further.
