Equipped with 110 units of Acer Predator Gaming PCs, the newly opened High Grounds Cafe in Tomas Morato, Quezon City is the first ever eSports arena in the country!

Inaugurated last week (Feb 8), the first and only branded gaming cafe in the Philippines is managed by the country’s top gaming cafe brand TNC (TheNet.Com).

It’s powered with an internet speed of about 500 mbps at the computer shop and around 200 mbps at the cafe. Speed is always a requirement for gaming pros and a gaming cafe is nothing without it! So that’s always an assurance at High Grounds Cafe.

Second requirement is the gaming rig – and that’s the beauty part of their set-up!


Imagine the whole placed armed to the teeth with Acer Predator G1 (GTX 1080) and Predator G3 (GTX 1060) desktops!

The Predator G1 squeals with beastly bravado that suits today’s brawny gamers with its ultra-powerful Intel Core i7 6700 processor (8M Cache, up to 4.00GHz) inside and 32GB DDR4 2133MHz memory for enough show and swagger and truly rock the house with its fiery performance regardless of gaming title while the 3TB 3.5-inch 7200 RPM and 256 GB M.2 2280 Solid State Drive combination is a force to reckon with in terms of storage capability. For visual clarity that lets you get your head—and eyes—into the game, trust the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 with 8GB of GDDR5 graphics card to deliver the goods when it comes to an awesome and immersive game experience.

The Predator G3, meanwhile, boasts of the same overclocked Intel i7 processor for that ferocious roar in every game, powerful 16GB DDR4 2133MHz memory and 2TB 3.5-inch and 128GB Solid State Drive combination for the utmost in storage capacity and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 with 3GB GDDR5 graphics card that lets you stun your enemies with out-of-this-world graphics and dominate the esports scene.

Pair these two gaming monsters with the 24-inch full HD Predator XB241H monitors that support NVIDIA G sync technology to boost your game day with its no-tear and less-stutter performance for fast-paced games and ferocious visuals that will certainly stun any onlooker.

The inauguration last Feb 8 allowed all the guests to immerse on the High Grounds gaming experience as well as enjoy all the wonderful gamer-friendly snacks and drinks available in the cafe delivered straight to your station by friendly and courteous staff.

Completing the out-of-this-world launch experience are the cosplayers dressed up as well-loved gaming characters that roamed all over the cafe plus a rocking performance from Marc Abaya and his band KJWAN!


The centerpiece of High Grounds Cafe that night is probably the grand launch of the Acer Predator 21X pro gaming laptop that looked like a monster inside and out!

Targeting the well-heeled and loaded tech lovers out there who will spare no peso in getting the most advanced and powerful gaming rig around, the Predator 21 X is a perfect fit for gamers who seek a whole new level of immersion in terms of sound and visuals, interaction, cooling and power efficiency never seen before in any gaming laptop.

The Predator 21 X is a humongous beast of a laptop that comes with a robust 21-inch-wide FHD (2560 x 1080) IPS screen with 2000R curvature for unbelievable visuals, 7th Generation Intel Core i7 processor, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 SLI with 16GB GDDR5X graphics card coupled with 64GB of DDR4 system memory, plus Acer ColorBlast technology for the clearest and most abundant colors ever to reach a laptop.
