Acer today announced new additions across its growing Predator line of gaming products at the annual next@acer global press conference in New York. The new Predator Orion 5000 desktop PC powered by Windows 10 is a mid-tower targeting hardcore gamers, with Intel’s latest Z390 chipset, 9th Gen Intel® Core i9-9900K processor, and features an NVIDIA® GeForce RTX 2080 GPU. In addition, Acer has launched a massive 43-inch Predator monitor, alongside new additions to its series of Predator gadgets.
“The Predator Orion 5000 series is designed for gamers who prefer to max out their settings in and potentially dive into streaming with little-to-no impact on performance,” said Jeff Lee, General Manager, Stationary Computing, IT Product Business, Acer Inc. “With the latest gaming technologies like a GeForce RTX GPU and overclockable 9th Gen Intel Core i9-9900K Processor, the new Orion 5000 packs enough power to satisfy even the most demanding gamers.”
“It’s great to see Acer bring such a wide portfolio of gaming devices designed to meet the needs of so many different types of gamers with their new Predator and Nitro series offerings,” said Mark Linton, General Manager, Consumer and Device Sales, Microsoft Corp. “Acer continues to innovate and bring great gaming experiences to market for consumers.”
Acer’s New Predator Orion 5000: Ideal for High-performance Gamers
The new Predator Orion 5000 (PO5-605S) adopts the overclockable octa-core 9th Gen Intel® Core i9-9900K (with Z390 chipset) with support for dual-channel DDR4 configurations (up to 64GB) to deliver premium gaming experiences. For superior graphics performance, the revolutionary NVIDIA Turing architecture on the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 GPU combines real-time ray tracing, artificial intelligence, and programmable shading to immerse players in a visually-stunning gaming experience. With the extreme processor the Orion 5000 has under the hood, a Cooler Master® CPU Liquid Cooler1 regulates temperature to maximize peak performance. Strategically-placed intake and exhaust fans as well as a shrouded power supply unit outfitted with its very own removable dust filter ensure each internal component of the Orion tower stays cool during extended gaming sessions.
The tower’s chassis has been trimmed down to just 30 liters so users can choose a powerful machine with a reduced footprint, while the see-through side panel includes a layer of metal mesh which, along with the rest of the case, gives EMI shielding to inner components. Users can maintain superiority over the competition with 2.5Gbps Ethernet, and when victory is assured, they can hang the headset on either of the chassis’ two headset cradles.
The Easy-Swap expansion bay supports 2.5 inch form factor SATA I/II/III SSD and HDD drives, providing file transfer speeds of up to 6Gbps, for quick and easy moving or switching of data without tools or rebooting. It’s ideal for gamers who want to swap data, move systems, or travel with their 2.5 inch SSD quickly.
Revved Up RGB
Users can choose an RGB lighting pattern that fits their style, or one that suits the game of choice. Light bars and case fans tucked away within the hardened shell support 16.7 million colors. With Lighting Maker, customers can fine tune lighting and let it dance with the music being played.
Acer’s Predator 43-inch LFGD Gaming Monitor: The Ultimate Orion 5000 Companion
Acer revealed its Predator LFGD (Large format gaming display) monitor (CG437K P) measuring an astounding 43-inches. Designed for hardcore PC and console gaming enthusiasts looking for ultra-high definition (3840 x 2160), the 4Kmonitor features a fast 144Hz refresh rate for incredibly smooth and tear-free imagery, essential for tracking objects as they zip across the screen. The monitor’s AdaptiveSync feature adapts to the frame rate of the outputting device, resulting in uninterrupted gameplay so users can concentrate on the task at hand. The VA display panel features a wide color gamut of 90 percent of the DCI-P3 color space for vibrant colors that pop out and deeper blacks. For enhanced color vibrancy, VESA-Certified DisplayHDR 1000 certification ensures better contrast and color accuracy, allowing customers to experience AAA games as they are meant to be. It’s not just for hardcore PC gamers. Console gamers will appreciate its three HDMI ports, plus a Type-C, and a DisplayPort.
The Predator CG437K P features power saving technologies, such as a light sensor that can detect the light level in the room and automatically adjusts brightness for comfortable viewing, and a proximity sensor, so as viewers move to the front of the monitor it will automatically wake up from standby mode, or revert to sleep mode when there is no movement in the room. It also includes a remote control, making it convenient for living room use.
New Predator Gadgets and Accessories Level Up the Gaming Experience
A new range of Predator gaming gadgets was also unveiled, including:
- Predator M-Utility Backpack: designed for gamers, streamers and photographers, it’s water-repellant and offers easy access to its 17-inch laptop compartment through a 180-degree fold-flat opening, making it easy for passing through airport security; plus it has a plethora of pockets including a tripod holder, built-in luggage strap for traveling, adjustable straps, and air mesh back padding.

COP28 – The Bermuda Difference White Paper: “Bringing expertise, resource, and finance to the world´s biggest challenge”
HAMILTON, Bermuda, Nov. 30, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — The Government of Bermuda is pleased to be represented at the COP28 summit in Dubai, scheduled for November 30 – December 12, 2023.
The event will be attended inter alia by the island´s Premier The Hon David E Burt JP, MP and Deputy Premier The Hon Walter Roban JP, MP. The seniority of the delegation reflects the commitment of Bermuda and its people to becoming the climate risk capital of the world, and its key position in oceanic conservation, and as a leader on Net Zero initiatives in its own right.
With this in mind, the Government has published today a White Paper on its approach:
“The Bermuda Difference
Bringing expertise, resource, and finance to the world´s biggest challenge”
The paper and a related video are at the links below:
Video – https://youtu.be/qMAaaAf_ETQ
The publications between them highlight Bermuda´s focus:
- As custodian of the largest maritime area in the world, some 460,000 sq km of ocean, a fifth of which it has designated as an Economic Exclusive Zone (EEZ) protected fully from human activity. Bermuda is also the lead trustee of the dozen or so countries looking after the Sagasso sea, a crucial asset for conservation and spawning.
- In its expectation of matching or exceed the achievements of some of the leading signatories to Paris, with already 100% replacement of the bus fleet with EVs, on track for 85% reduction in carbon footprint by 2035 and Net Zero by 2050.
- With the installation 15MW of solar capacity in the last three years, more than many much larger Paris signatory nations have managed.
- Its stated ambition of becoming the world´s climate risk capital, from its existing position as the underwriting hub of one third of the world´s climate catastrophe insurance.
Minister Roban said:
“The environment, particularly in its maritime aspect, is at the heart of national life and economic policy. We welcome COP28 as a further opportunity to share and to build on our unique and vital contribution to the planet in this area.
Our world leading insurance and financial services sector plays an ever-growing part in providing security and mitigation for those most affected by climate change.
As the proverb goes, “we inherit from our parents, but are borrowing from our children”. The time for action is now.”

Climate Finance Top of the Agenda at The Second Edition of R.A.C.E. Sustainability Summit Held on the Opening Day of COP28 in the UAE
- Part of Abu Dhabi Finance Week, R.A.C.E. served as a platform that discussed many critical topics financing the transition to a net-zero economy, climate finance, carbon markets, and sustainable capital markets.
- Some of the gripping sessions had renowned speakers such as H.H. Sheikha Shamma bint Sultan bin Khalifa Al Nahyan, H.R.H Prince Khaled bin Alwaleed bin Talal Al Saud and Ronald P. O’hanley.
ABU DHABI, UAE, Nov. 30, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — The second edition of the R.A.C.E (Regulation, Awareness, Collaboration, Ecosystem) Sustainability Summit took place today at Abu Dhabi Finance Week (ADFW) presented by Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM) in partnership with HSBC. R.A.C.E Sustainability Summit aimed to reaffirm the UAE’s commitment to advancing the global sustainability agenda, capping a series of discussions, insights, and forward-thinking solutions that are set to shape the future of finance.
During this event, R.A.C.E. delved into the critical question of whether Climate Finance represents the greatest capital reallocation in history. The conference aimed to identify strategies to bridge the USD 11 trillion capital gap between what is required for achieving net-zero emissions and the capital currently available for such initiatives.
The summit focussed on addressing a wide range of topics including financing the transition to a net-zero economy, climate finance, carbon markets, and sustainable capital markets. These discussions were led by prominent figures from the financial and regulatory sectors through keynote addresses and panel discussions.
In tandem, the Global Financial Regulators Summit, a key highlight of the event, presented the outcomes from a pivotal gathering of global financial regulatory leaders, shedding light on the role regulators play in shaping the financial landscape of the future, especially for climate financing.
A keynote speech by Her Highness Sheikha Shamma bint Sultan bin Khalifa Al Nahyan, President and CEO of the UAE Independent Climate Change Accelerators (UICCA) and Founder of the Shamma bint Sultan Sustainability Initiatives Social Enterprise, spoke on reframing the paradigm to emphasising both the investment opportunity and risk mitigation aspect of climate finance to create global financial stability. Other prominent speakers such as Ronald P. O’hanley, Chairman & CEO of State Street Corporation spoke about the evolving strategies of asset managers as they approach transition finance, and H.R.H Prince Khaled bin Alwaleed bin Talal Al Saud, Founder & CEO of KBW Ventures about ‘impact investing’ for investors during a transitioning era.
The event also witnessed 28 new signatories for the Abu Dhabi Sustainable Finance Declaration, bringing the total count of signatories to 145, and showcasing their commitment to sustainability and climate financing.
Among the several announcements during today’s R.A.C.E. Sustainability Summit, the key ones included NinetyOne announcing the firm’s intention to establish a presence at ADGM in 2024 and Independent Financial Services Group – Rothschild & Co., European fast-growing asset manager – Eiffel Investment Group and TimeToAct announcing receiving their In-Principle Approval (IPA) from the Financial Services Regulatory Authority (FSRA) of ADGM.
Other major announcements included, NewVest announcing the world’s first Private Green Energy Transition Funds Index (GET-PIF) which is set to be a capital gateway for private investments critical to supporting successful energy transition.
Commenting on the event, Emmanuel Givanakis, CEO of the FSRA of ADGM stated, “The second edition of R.A.C.E. Sustainability Summit at ADFW has reinforced the importance of the global financial community’s collective commitment to addressing climate change. We are proud to host an event that brings together global thought leaders and experts to explore innovative solutions for a more sustainable future. At ADGM, we see ourselves as an important driving force in the UAE’s journey towards a net-zero future by 2050 as we create an ecosystem with a robust regulatory framework that champions sustainable finance and climate transition. As we stand on the cusp of profound change, our unwavering commitment empowers both the public and private sectors to join forces in closing the green financing gap that expedites the transition to net zero while also shaping the sustainable financial landscape of the future alongside the COP28.”
R.A.C.E served as a pre-prep event for COP28 where critical negotiations related to Climate Finance took place. ADGM plans to continue this conversation at a much higher level at COP28, being the official Principle Climate Finance Partner and hosting the sixth edition of the Abu Dhabi Sustainable Finance Forum (ADSFF) on the 4th of December 2023, convening important decision-makers and contributors to sustainable finance and ESG initiatives across global borders.
