The moth­er­ship has landed

Acer Preda­tor 21 X makes its Malaysian de­but, along­side Preda­tor XB2 se­ries gam­ing mon­i­tors.

HWM (Malaysia) - - GAX -

The world’s first note­book with a curved dis­play, the Acer Preda­tor 21 X, has ar­rived in Malaysia. Not just any or­di­nary curved dis­play, mind you, but a 21-inch NVIDIA G-SYNC curved IPS dis­play, which has a cur­va­ture of 2000R, a res­o­lu­tion of 2,560 x 1,080, a re­fresh rate of 120Hz, and a 4ms gray-to-gray (GTG) re­sponse time.

In­side the belly of the beast re­sides an over­clock­able 7th gen­er­a­tion In­tel Core i7-7820HK pro­ces­sor, two NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 graph­ics cards run­ning in SLI, 64GB of DDR4-2400 RAM, two 512GB NVMe SSDs run­ning in RAID 0 con­fig­u­ra­tion, and a 1TB 7,200RPM hard drive. For a gam­ing note­book with an as­tro­nom­i­cal price tag of RM39,999, you re­ally shouldn’t ex­pect any­thing less.

The Preda­tor 21 X also comes loaded with an as­sort­ment of nifty fea­tures as well, in­clud­ing an RGB back­lit me­chan­i­cal key­board with Cherry MX Brown switches, a col­umn of pro­gram­mable short­cut keys, and most in­ter­est­ingly, a de­tach­able nu­meric key­pad that can be flipped over to be used as a track­pad.

It’s no sur­prise that with such a chunky chas­sis, the Preda­tor 21 X is able to ac­com­mo­date all the essen­tial connectivity ports, in­clud­ing four USB 3.0 ports (one with power-off charg­ing), one USB 3.1 Type-C Gen 2 Thun­der­bolt 3 port, an SD card reader, an au­dio in/out port, two Dis­playPorts, one HDMI port, and most im­por­tantly, an Eth­er­net port.

You can ex­pand the screen real es­tate of the Preda­tor 21 X even fur­ther by hook­ing it up to the new 24.5-inch Preda­tor XB252Q and 27-inch Preda­tor XB272 gam­ing mon­i­tors, which have a Full HD (1,920 x 1,080) res­o­lu­tion, a light­ning­fast 1ms GTG re­sponse time, and a 240Hz re­fresh rate. The smaller of the two mon­i­tors is yours for RM2,399, while its slightly larger sib­ling re­tails for RM2,599.
