the laptop that brings your creations to life

Gone are the days when creatives and professionals had to turn to gaming laptops to find a machine powerful enough to run their software. Combining its ConceptD range with its range of technology solutions from SpatialLabs, Acer offers a system optimized for creative use and features never seen before on a laptop.

Stereoscopic 3D will change the lives of creatives and engineers

With the ConceptD 7 SpatialLabs, 3D designers can finally see their creations from all angles thanks to an image emerging from the screen in stereoscopic 3D, with an intuitive 360 ​​degree perspective. The stereoscopy techniques used make it possible to reproduce the perception of relief of two flat images using a specialized optical lens and Eye Tracking technology, all sprinkled with artificial intelligence.

Unlike in the cinema you have no no special glasses needed to take advantage of the 3D display, which is very practical to check the conformity with the original design and to solve problems. Once experienced, creatives and technicians can no longer work without stereoscopic 3D.

The SpatialLabs Model Viewer also provides additional options to enhance the experience, such as the ability to: change the HDRI background of a model† This makes it possible to present a product in a realistic environment and to facilitate a presentation to a customer who, for example, can better immerse themselves in the model and get an idea of ​​the final product.

You’d better connect an external monitor to the ConceptD 7 SpatialLabs to edit the scenes and models in 2D on this second screen in order to evaluate the changes in real time with the stereoscopic 3D of the portable PC. A configuration that can be obtained by combining Blender with SpatialLabsGo or Maya with the PiStage tool, for example.

A software ecosystem designed to create

3D animators, developers, CAD, CGI or CAD designers, engineers, architects, videographers and many more need specific programs for their work. With the ISV Certifications* enjoyed by the ConceptD 7 SpatialLabs, consumers are reassured about the capacity of the machine it has to offer software and hardware compatibility with the software he uses every day.

In terms of interface, the computers in the range benefit from the ConceptD Palette, a dashboard that gives direct access to a a variety of customizable settings† Thanks to this, you can configure different color profiles and switch between them with a click. This tool also comes in handy with its color picker to sample and retrieve the color values ​​displayed on the screen. There is also an on-screen shortcuts feature and a wide variety of split screen options with automatic window size to improve productivity.

Developers will love to hear that SpatialLabs supports Unreal Engine via Acer XR Runtime**, to create new experiences with complete freedom and flexibility. For engineers and creatives, SpatialLabs Model Viewer supports all file formats of all major 3D modeling software, from Blender to Autodesk 3DS Max to Fusion 360.

Thanks to NVIDIA Studio and GPU acceleration optimizations, the computer allocates graphics resources in the most efficient way to stimulate creative applications. NVIDIA Studio also provides up-to-date drivers developed in collaboration with creative software vendors for higher performance and enhanced functionality.

Screen, CPU, GPU, Memory: a monstrous tech sheet

The ConceptD 7 SpatialLabs benefits from a state-of-the-art hardware, starting with the screen, which should be perfect for the demanding needs of creative professions. At a diagonal of 15.6 inches, the screen displays 4K UHD definition and rich and accurate colorimetry. The panel is Pantone certified with color correction, covers 100% of Adobe’s RGB color space (wider than the sRGB standard), and is calibrated for true-to-life color reproduction, with the Delta E being less than 2.

For an easier workflow and faster rendering speed, this laptop is equipped with: powerful components of the latest generation† It features an Intel Core i7 Tiger Lake processor and an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 graphics card. With 64 GB DRR4 RAM and 2 TB fast NVMe PCIe SSD storage, the system can generate video or 3D displays in record time.

With the ConceptD 7 SpatialLabs, performance is not synonymous with heat or noise. Work on resource-intensive applications with peace of mind thanks to the cooling system consisting of 4th generation AeroBlade 3D fans, generating an aerodynamic “Vortex Flow” to control system temperature. All this while maintaining low noise levels that do not exceed 40 dBA.

The connectors isn’t skipped either, with an HDMI 2.1 port that supports 4K at 120 frames per second, a DisplayPort 1.4 and two USB 3.2 Type-C connections with Thunderbolt 4. Wireless connectivity promises the best speeds with the support for Wi-Fi 6 standard.

* ISV (Independent Software Vendor) Certification: All ConceptD products (towers and laptops) are tested and approved for compatibility with the software most commonly used by creators. For more information about partner software, see the Acer Independent Software Vendor Partner page.

Unreal Engine via Acer XR Runtime: Developers can create and customize projects for unique SpatialLabs™ experiences for specific use cases (e.g., museums, showrooms, hospitals, or schools) that can be viewed and interacted with in stereoscopic 3D.
