Gaming tablets are somewhat of a rarity in the Android world – NVIDIA’s SHIELD Tablet does seem quite lonely├é┬ásometimes – but it seems there is another challenger. Announced today at Computex 2015, the Acer Predator 8 is a mean, lean, gaming machine and to help it in its plight for ultimate gaming glory, it rocks the new Intel Atom x7 processor and has four front-facing speakers. Yes, four.

In case you were wondering, the Atom x7 is the same processor that comes in some of the new Windows Surface 3 tablets, which means this tablet has decent gaming chops, for an Android device at least. Furthermore, it just looks like a badass tablet with its sharp edges and angry colours, which again, is another rarity in the Android world. Despite all this, the Predator 8 is still going to be a bit of a niche product, but it’s good to see more of these devices emerging to give Android gamers an option should they want one. Unfortunately we don’t have much in the way of details just yet, but hopefully we will in the near future.
