Acer and AMD launch Ryzen 7-powered Acer GX-281

Acer and AMD has launched the Acer GX-281, the first pre-assembled CPU in the country powered by AMD’s next-gen Ryzen 7 processor. The Ryzen 7 amps up the GX-281’s performance with 8 CPU cores, 16 threads, a 3.4GHz base clock speed (can be extended to 3.8GHz), and an Extended Frequency Range for premium performance and cooling.

The Acer GX-281 comes in a sleek housing and is designed to provide superspeed data transfer, massive storage and expansion capabilities, stunning 4k resolution visuals, and Qi standard wireless charging. It has eight cores each with Simultaneous Multi-Threading (SMT), the Ryzen 7 boasts a 52% improvement in instructions per clock versus AMD’s previous best which means it is able to process more clock for clock.

The Ryzen 7 handles single-threaded performance that heavy PC users (gamers and content creators) will appreciate both for its its powerful processing ability and its affordability.

AMD’s Ryzen 7’s Sense MI allows the processor to accurately and expertly 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.
