Acer prepping Atom-based 8-inch gaming laptop

Acer is reportedly going to make its entry in the gaming tablet market sometime later this quarter. DigiTimes heard from its sources that it will be an 8" device based on Intel's Atom Z8700 processor. Curiously, the goal of the device seems to be to raise recognition in the gaming market, as Acer expects the gaming tablet will achieve only limited sales.
In April, Acer announced plans to release a series of gaming products under the Predator brand, and one of the products is the gaming tablet.

So far, the tablet market has a limited number of gaming devices, the most known being Nvidia's Shield. The Shield was launched in 2013, featuring a 5-inch or 8-inch display. Nvidia rumored to be planning to release a second-generation Shield in the second half, using its Tegra X1 processor.
Along with Chromebooks and 2-in-1 devices, gaming products are among the key focuses of Acer in 2015. The company recently introduced its new Predator G-6 gaming desktops at Gamescom, these PCs will hit the market in September.
