Acer enters new streaming realm with first launch gaming Chromebook 516 GE

Acer has taken its first jaunt into the world of Chromebook gaming with the release of the cloud optimised Chromebook 516 GE. This latest release gives instant access to full PC and console games powered by the cloud. Under the hood you will find 12th Gen Intel Core processors, a fast 120Hz display, an RGB keyboard with anti-ghosting technology, advanced DTS audio, and most importantly, support for leading cloud gaming platforms including the highest performance tier of NVIDIA’s GeForce NOW, Xbox Cloud Gaming (Beta), and Amazon Luna.

Streamed from NVIDIA GeForce NOW’s SuperPOD, a powerful gaming supercomputer in the cloud, the highest performance tier of NVIDIA GeForce NOW enables games to be streamed at up to 1600p and 120 frames per second with cutting-edge graphics features like ray tracing and more.

The Acer Chromebook 516 GE also utilises 16GB LPDDR4X RAM and up to 256GB PCIe NVMe SSD storage to further boost responsiveness, making it one of the best Chromebooks for gaming to date.

The Acer Chromebook 516 GE showcases stunning game visuals on its ultra-smooth 120Hz high-resolution WQXGA (2560×1600) IPS display. The fast refresh rate enables high FPS gameplay, so players don’t miss a millisecond of action. Its 16-inch narrow-bezel and 16:10 aspect ratio vivid display bring immersive visuals to life, while the 100% sRGB colour gamut support delivers a wide range of accurate and vibrant colours.

DTS audio delivers high-quality, distortion-free sound on the two upward-firing speakers and two downward-firing speakers. Unwanted sound vibrations are also eliminated by the force-cancelling woofers that project in opposite directions in perfect unison.

The Chromebook 516 GE’s gaming keyboard features anti-ghosting technology to register fast and accurate keyboard inputs and key combinations. The keyboard also offers vibrantly coloured preset backlight colour modes to add excitement to users’ gameplay. Users can select from one of seven colours or a predefined 4-zone colour option.

The Acer Chromebook 516 GE’s long 9-hour battery ensures the continued enjoyment of gaming. The Chromebook also features a full HD flare-reducing webcam with temporal noise-reduction technology to increase visual fidelity. The dual microphones complement the quad speakers to ensure high-quality input matches the audio output.
