Acer Predator Orion X: High-end gaming PC with RTX 4090 announced
Acer expands its lineup of gaming PCs with a new top model in the form of the Acer Predator Orion X. The computer is already equipped with the latest high-end components ex-works and is supposed to be particularly easy to upgrade, even for non-professionals.
The Acer Predator Orion X in detail
The Acer Predator Orion X aims to combine the advantages of a complete PC with the simple upgrade option of a self-built computer, which complements the line-up of gaming PCs with the Predator Orion 3000 (our review) and Predator Orion 7000 (our review).
Thus, the Orion X comes in a compact form factor and is only 38.2 cm x 17.9 cm x 29.2 cm. Under the hood is an Intel Core i9-13900KS with eight performance and 16 efficiency cores, which enables clock rates of up to 6.0 GHz.
A maximum of an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 is used for the graphics card, up to 32 GB of fast DDR5-5600 RAM and two M.2-2280 SSDs with up to 1 TB of storage each are possible ex-factory. Of course, RGB lighting, which can be adjusted together with the system performance via the “Acer PredatorSense 4.0” app, should not be missing.
On the other hand, at least an Intel Core i5-13400F and an Nvidia GeForce RTX 4070 Ti are used in the Acer Orion X. The processors are always kept in check by a water cooling system with a 240 mm radiator. A headset can also be attached to the top.
Especially easy to upgrade
When you take a look at the case of the Acer Predator Orion X, you will immediately notice the different zone designations. The complete PC is supposed to be upgraded particularly quickly and easily even by laymen via these.
Zone 02 on the left side, for example, offers quick access to the graphics card and two 2.5-inch hard drives. Zone 03 on the left side is responsible for cooling, here the radiator sits behind a mesh panel.
Access to the individual zones is gained via a flap lever on the front of the case, which can then be opened and closed quickly and easily.
In terms of ports, the Orion X relies on once USB-A and USB-C 3.2 Gen 1, a microphone and an audio combo jack on the front, and once USB-C 3.2 Gen 2×2, three times USB-A 3.2 Gen 2, twice USB-A 2.0 and once RJ45 on the back. Fast Wi-Fi 6E is also on board.
Prices and Availability of the Acer Orion X
The Acer Predator Orion X gaming PC is expected to be available in German stores from September 2023. The entry-level model with Core i5-13400F and RTX 4070 Ti is to start at a recommended retail price of 2,499 euros.
