Acer has modified the chair in comparison to its predecessor, and removed the motorization of the monitor arm in the Air. This time around, it comes in the form of Predator Thronos Air. The whole rig can tilt backward to give you more of an upward view, which will apparently add to the immersion.
The new Acer Predator Triton 500 has display with 300 Hz refresh rate.
This is meant to help you unwind after a demanding gaming session, or perhaps to help relax you after the chat you've just had with your bank manager following your purchase of the Thronos Air. The Thronos Air is like a cockpit, a cave, an immersive pod. There's a monitor handle below this same monitor spot for ease in raising and lowering the screen.
This lighter, cheaper version of the Thronos (the original rang in at $20,000) delivers a steel exoskeleton-style cage within which a manually adjustable monitor arm has the power to suspend three large monitors side by side for an ultrawide visual setup. Lighting throughout the Predator Thronos hardware emits a teal blue "soft cool glow". But really, it's a gaming massage chair. There is also a place for your PC to live and a neat cable management system. Where it differs is that it's now around half the price (starting at around US$14,000) and this is mostly because it no longer has all the motorized tilting gadgetry and haptic feedback, but, it does have a massage feature built into the chair.
The new Predator Triton 300 is a less exciting release, with comparatively mid-range specs in comparison and no big standout feature. The new chair will cost $13,999 and will be available in Q4 of this year. Customization options and upgrades include a seat stabilizer, cup holder, headset holder, USB hub, and a camera. I suppose we'll see when we get our hands on the chair in the near future!
