As noted in Acer, "under a cowl" models the powerful system capable to cope with the most exacting applications for three-dimensional modeling and interior design, processing of video or creation of animation is hidden. Acer ConceptD CT500 supports installation of modern processors up to IntelCore i9-9900K and to 64 GB of the DDR4 RAM with a frequency of 2666 MHz, but the graphics adapter will become the main tool of the owner of the PC. Professional video cards from 8 GB of memory allow to cope with any tasks connected with graphic content, and in versions with NVIDIA Quadro RTX 4000 the AI technologies increasing system performance, and technology of ray tracing in real time for creation of lighting effects are supported.

For convenience of users and an opportunity to expand file storage compartments for hard 2.5-and 3.5-inch drives are provided in ConceptD CT500. At the same time a system is equipped with PCIe solid state drive M.2 with a capacity up to 1 TB which provides fast loading of OS and applications, and the hard drive with a capacity up to 2 Tb for storage of work materials, emphasized in Acer.

When developing ConceptD CT500 engineers of Acer paid special attention to the cooling system. Three fans effectively take away heat from powerful components, but even at the maximum load — for example, during rendering of three-dimensional graphics — noise level will not rise higher than 40 dB, claim in Acer.

According to the producer, the PC differs in a simple and convenient monitoring system. Software of ConceptD Palette monitors load of the processor and the video card, level of loading of RAM and temperature of all principal components. At the same time the System Health Indicator technology uses LED illumination on the button of a power supply and the front panel of the body, quickly notifying the owner on possible malfunctions in a system, changing color of illumination.

As of November, 2019 ConceptD CT500 can be purchased at the price from 155,990 rubles.
