Acer joins the 10-series Gaming Notebook race with the Predator 21 X
Other 10-series notebook additions also announced.
Looks like better late than never would be the motto for Acer’s newest Predator series as they finally add NVIDIA GeForce GTX 10-series powered products to their gaming notebook line. Revealed this week, 3 new 10-series powered gaming notebooks will be joining Predator’s lineup, with the flagship product being the GeForce GTX 1080 SLI powered Predator 21 X.
Hailed as the first Curved Screen Notebook, the Predator 21 X, together with other 10-series powered notebooks, was revealed earlier this week at Acer’s press event in IFA 2016 Berlin, and is also equipped with new 7th Generation Intel Core processors, Cherry MX Mechanical switches for the keyboard, as well as Eye-tracking sensors. Given the specifications though, the Predator 21 X will not be available until Q1 of next year, which means that we may still have to wait for more information regarding its actual specifications and pricing.
In addition to the 21 X, the Predator 15 and Predator 17 will also be receiving GTX GeForce 10 series versions with 1060 and 1070 versions to be made available, in contrast to the Predator 21 X, both the Predator 15 and Predator 17 will be both available starting this September with a starting price of USD 1,699.
