Acer Predator 21 X Features Curved Display, GTX 1080 SLI, & Kaby Lake
Gaming laptops may not be great value for money but that is not stopping people who can afford it from getting one. It is a profitable market, companies can charge huge markups for their products. Here we have an impressive example of a powerful gaming laptop, the Acer Predator 21 X.
The laptop has a curved display and is the first of its kind. You can judge from the title of this article that this is a high-end gaming laptop and you are right about that. The Acer Predator 21 X has the following features:
- Intel’s 7th Generation Kaby Lake processors
- Two Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 graphics cards in SLI
- Mechanical keyboard
- Clamshell form factor
- 21” display panel
- Five fans
- Multiple heat-pipes
- Nvidia G-Sync
- GbE port
- 2T2R 802.11ac + Bluetooth Wi-Fi module
- USB Type-A ports
- USB Type-C
As you can see from the device specifications, the Acer Predator 21 X is a beast of a machine and with specs like this, I would not call it a laptop but a portable powerhouse.
You may have noticed that the device comes with Kaby Lake, which is still not on the market right now so this laptop will not be coming out for several months. Still, if you want something that is portable and can give you the ultimate gaming experience in such a form factor then the Acer Predator 21 X is an option you can consider.
As always with great power comes great price tags so the Acer Predator 21 X will not be cheap. The cost of having two GTX 1080 in the setup alone is massive and you could build a gaming PC for the price of the GPUs alone. We are still waiting for the official word regarding release date and pricing so we will let you know once there is confirmation regarding the matter.
What are your views regarding the Acer Predator 21 X? Too much power to handle?
