Acer’s Predator Thronos Gaming Chair – A R250,000 Machine

The Predator Thronos Gaming Chair: the last Chair You’ll Ever Need:

According to Acer, the Predator Thronos Gaming Chair creates an unrivaled gaming experience.

During a demo of the machine this past week, I found my skills in Apex Legends increase, which I can only assume was because of the chair’s overall comfort and immersive design.

It may have been the all-encompassing experience of running through The Pit using three Predator Z271U WQHD displays while mashing on The Aethon 500 mechanical keyboard and Cestus 510 gaming mouse.

It could have been both of these things that improved my overall gaming performance, producing a surreal experience and a sense of heightened productivity and efficiency. What I am sure about, is that the Predator Thronos Gaming Chair won’t disappoint, whatever your lofty expectations may have been for a room-filling gaming rig.

The Thronos Gaming Chair and The Orion Gaming PC:

The complete edition of this behemoth of gaming gear comes complete with either the Predator Orion 3000, Predator Orion 5000, or Predator Orion 9000; each delivering extreme performance with the latest Intel® processors and NVIDIA® graphics.

However, with each increase in PC capability and ability, the price of the chair is pushed from a casual R260000 to up over R300000!

But not to worry, I’ve been assured that Acer Africa will deliver and set up everything for you, which can take a team of technicians and a few hours to do, but it’s the little things that count right?

The Point of Concept Technology as an Industry Benchmark:

While piloting the Predator Thronos Gaming Chair, I did notice how all encapsulating the machine was; it gives you the sense of being embedded into your game or work station, whichever you need, and you may want to use it for both, why not?!

I could easily see myself staying put in my Thronos mech, finishing a day’s work and jamming some Apex Legends come evening, all we need now is a cooler for refreshments!

The Predator Thronos is a concept, meant to show the market that Acer’s Predator brand can do some amazing stuff, with the design aesthetic to boot. No, the Predator Thronos Gaming Chair won’t sell many units, but the point of a machine like this is to make a statement that “Predator is here, and we’re willing to invest into playing the competitive game locally”. 

That’s why I’ve considered this tech, tier 1.
