Dubbed as the start of “Rebellion,” both companies said their mission is to provide affordable and high-quality tools for technology.

“AMD is a leader in disruptive technology, and this is why it was only logical to partner with them for the GX-281,” shares Sue Ong-Lim, sales and marketing director of Acer Philippines. “Quality and affordability should never be a compromise, and we’re happy to have found a partner who shares the same principle.”

The Acer GX-281 feeds the gamers with fast data transfer, massive storage, expansion capabilities, 4K resolution, and Qi standard wireless charging while donning a sleek armor-shaped housing lined with smoldering red LED lights. Internally, the Ryzen 7 processor boosts the GX-281’s performance further with 8 CPU cores, 16 Threads, a 3.4GHz base clock speed which may be extended to 3.8GHz, and an Extended Frequency Range (XFR).

“The Ryzen 7 has grown a tenacious reputation among gamers and content creators worldwide for its exceptional processing power and surprising affordability,” said AMD director of consumer sales for APJ, Peter Chambers. “We’ve always been committed to innovating solutions to meet our customer’s needs, which we share with Acer Philippines in the launch of this new product.”

Carrying eight cores each with Simultaneous Multi-Threading (SMT), the Ryzen 7 exhibits 52% improvement in instructions per clock versus AMD’s previous best. The Ryzen 7 also indulges heavy PC users with its processing ability and affordability.

AMD’s precious chip is also equipped with Sense MI, allowing the processor to accurately monitor itself within a milliamp, millivolt, milliwatt, and even a single-degree Celsius which is used by Precision Boost to pinpoint its ideal clock frequency.

“We’ve identified the segments of our markets and what their processing needs are, and with this information we’ve customized the Ryzen 7′s key capabilities to address successfully each challenge our customers face,” said Chambers.

As of this writing, there are two variations of the Acer GX-281 in the market:
