Acer recently launched the latest addition to its gaming desktops lineup, the Predator Orion X. This compact gaming PC is a powerful machine that combines up to the special edition 13th Gen Intel Core i9-13900KS processor and up to a liquid-cooled NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 GPU.
The Predator Orion X features a space capsule-inspired design, crafted with multiple “zones” to house the CPU, GPU, and liquid cooling system. The upgradeable gaming PC also comes with a removable magnetic front cover and metal side panels to protect the vital internals and a mechanical arm-like headset cradle at the top.
The Predator Orion X’s chassis is space capsule-inspired and weighs only 9 kg (19.8 lbs), which is impressive considering the powerful components housed within it. The gaming desktop has a modified layout with three special zones, which provide greater customization freedom and performance. Zone 1 is designated for greater accessibility to the CPU, PSU, and SSD, Zone 2 keeps the VGA and dual 2.5-inch SATA HDD slots within striking distance, and Zone 3 stows a 240 mm CPU liquid cooler near Zone 1.
The Predator Orion X comes with up to 32GB DDR5-5600 RAM, two M.2 SSDs (up to 1TB each), and an illuminated, hot-swap NVMe M.2 SSD drive bay for added capacity. The DIY gaming rig also offers fast and seamless connectivity with Intel Killer E3100G and Intel Killer Wi-Fi 6E AX211 and a generous amount of ports, including two USB3.2 Gen1 (one Type-C and one Type-A), a mic and combo jack at the front, a USB 3.2 Gen2x2 Type-C port, three USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-A ports, two USB 2.0, and an RJ45 located at the rear.
Acer has also announced two new additions to its range of curved screens: the Nitro XZ452CU V and Predator X34 V gaming monitors. The Nitro XZ452CU V has a massive 44.5-inch screen and 1500R curvature, which lets casual and professional gamers alike enjoy a viewing experience like no other. The ultrawide 32:9 (5120×1440) aspect ratio lets them do more all at once, and the monitor boasts a refresh rate of 165Hz and comes with AMD FreeSync Premium Pro to eliminate screen tearing and lessen input lag.
The Predator X34 V monitor showcases an OLED UWQHD panel, DCI-P3 99% color gamut, and VESA DisplayHDR True Black 400 to render colors and image details splendidly. The 34-inch gaming monitor also features a 1800R curvature and 21:9 aspect ratio, a blazing 175 Hz refresh rate, and 0.1 ms response time.
