Acer's Predator 8 gaming tablet is now up for preorder at $300

12 November, 2015
Back in September at IFA 2015, Acer introduced two new interesting additions to its growing Predator lineup. To live up to their moniker, both devices were, as expected, gaming-oriented, evident by the sharp aggressive lines and red color palette. These were the Predator 6 phone and Predator 8 tablet.

You just don't go advertising a device as a gaming Android Tablet with an Intel SoC, pretty like everybody knows that it's a 0 day failure.

Your sources are wrong. Acer put up the Predator 8 for order last week on their site (on the 6th), and has been shipping them since then.

wow, this is just stupid, buy a 3DS, or a Vita, pay $300 for what content? Angry Birds,
no physical controls = not a gaming device.

"Gaming Tablet" + "Intel Atom" + "Android" don't blend. Android devices with Intel Atom are not performing well on games due to the fact most games are optimized for ARM architectures and not x86/x64. At the same price a device with a Qualcomm Snapdragon or Samsung Exynos SoC will always perform better. There are still ALOT of games that don't work at all on devices with Intel SoCs (let's say KINGDOM HEARTS Unchained χ) or games have to rely on ARMtox86_64 translation which makes games slow and buggy. Android's ecosystem is still really far from being Intel friendly and I doubt it will get soon atleast. Bad SoC choice Acer.
