Acer Predator 21X Review | Most Insense Gaming Laptop | 2019


There are three things you ought to quickly think about Acer's Predator 21 X workstation. To start with, it's hands-down the quickest workstation we've at any point seen. That is all. 

Second, it's the broadest workstation we've at any point seen: 22.4 inches wide, 12.4 inches down, and 2.71 crawls to 3.28 inches high, front to back.

Also, third: It's the most costly PC we've found in quite a while. Indeed, at $9,000, you'd figure it would be the priciest ever in PCWorld history, yet a 1990-time 286 PC that cost $6,000 balanced for swelling would be $11,367 today. All in all, the Predator 21 X is just about an arrangement, isn't that so? 

Be that as it may, genuinely, Acer's Predator 21 X isn't intended to be a standard item. For hell's sake, it's not intended to be a top of the line item. It's the very meaning of a feature, low-volume, prominent "radiance" item, expected to demonstrate that Acer can create the greatest, worst workstation on earth. What's more, Acer's done only that.

Just 300 Predator 21X will be made. This unit is No. 21.yup

Highlights: Everything inside the Predator 21 X 

Execution: Amazing, yet still moderately peaceful 

Highlights: Everything inside the Predator 21 X 

The most striking element of the Predator 21 X is its 21-inch bent screen. The board is 2560x1080 and bolsters G-Synchronize with an invigorate rate of 120Hz. The high invigorate rate and G-Match up methods everything is basically smoother—from gaming to simply moving windows and looking over program windows. When you've utilized a high invigorate rate board, you never need to return. 

The board has OK off-pivot support and a light enemy of glare complete, however, it won't win any shading exactness challenges. It is tolerably brilliant, however—we gauged its greatest splendour at 420 nits.

We, for the most part, lean toward bent screens to level screens—on ultra-wide boards estimating 34 inches. At 21 inches, the bend—appraised at 2000R—doesn't have an enormous effect on our eyes, however, it unquestionably adds to the panache of the Predator 21 X.

The screen is a 2000R bent screen. 

To drive that 2.8-megapixel screen, Acer stuffs no less than two GeForce GTX 1080 cards inside, in SLI mode. There's additionally a quad Center i7-7820HK, 64GB of DDR4/2400, two Toshiba 512GB NVMe M.2 drives, and a 1TB hard drive. It's difficult to bandy with that much stockpiling, however, in the event that we needed to grumble, we'd state the hard drive is excessively little at 1TB. It would appear that the thickest hard drive you can get in the Predator 21 X is a 9.5mm HDD, which beat out at 2TB today. 

The uplifting news is there's without two M.2 spaces that are effectively available once you expel the administration entryway on the base of the PC. The terrible news they work just at SATA speeds.

The base of the Predator 21X gives you simple access to the guts that you may really swap out. 

Console and trackpad 

The Predator 21 X highlights a full-stature mechanical console utilizing Cherry MX dark coloured switches. Acer isn't the primary PC creator to incorporate full-stature mechanical keys, obviously, yet it's a decent touch. The keys are exclusively RGB-lit, as well. On the off chance that you don't care for the hued WASD keys, Acer incorporates increasingly quiet dark keys in the container.

Cherry MX darker switches will keep your fingers cheerful. The keys are RGB and Acer incorporates increasingly quiet dark keys in the case. 

There's an incorporated Tobii EyeX eye tracker under the showcase and a fairly novel trackpad. The trackpad is counterbalanced to one side of the keys, yet Acer knows any gamer good for anything won't utilize a trackpad to play so the trackpad can be flipped over (it's joined through magnets) to uncover a 10-key cushion. The keys are not mechanical, however, we won't get demanding.

A balance trackpad can be flipped over to uncover a 10-key cushion. Magnets hold it set up. 

Ports and power 

The Predator 21 X pours on the ports: one Jolt 3, four USB 3.0 Sort A, two DisplayPort, and one HDMI 2.0. There's additionally an SD Card peruser, Gigabit Ethernet, a Kensington lock opening, and simple mic and earphone port. 

As you can envision, the majority of this equipment takes a lot of capacity to run. Since no outside blocks are accessible in sizes bigger than 330 watts, Acer uses the old trap of slaving two 330-watt blocks together. Every block recovers its own port in. Both are indistinguishable, so there's no particular request for connecting them.

The Predator 21X keeps running on two 330 watt blocks that can stunningly be held together utilizing the included X-molded elastic coupler. 

In an indication of how many ideas Acer put into the Predator 21 X, the organization incorporates an elastic represents the air conditioner connectors, decorated with the Predator logo and formed in an X. For appearance and tidiness, it's a decent touch you'd expect of a top-notch machine. 

Power utilization itself, for what it's valued, for the most part, sat in the 400-watt go under a graphically extreme outstanding task at hand, for example, Furmark. We kept running into one intriguing conduct: On the off chance that you push the GPUs hard running Furmark, with the CPU and GPUs overclocked, and afterwards abruptly pull the fitting, the Predator 21 X quickly sliced capacity to the PC. For some other PC, you'd anticipate that it should change over to the inner battery. However, considering the Predator 21 X's impressive power load, it's likely most secure to hit full stop as opposed to pushing a 400-watt load onto the installed batteries in a millisecond. 

At the point when there wasn't a heap on the Predator 21 X, the PC would carry on in an increasingly considerate issue. Unplugging the workstation would turn off the overclock and seriously ratchet back the GPU clock speeds. 



The Predator 21X's size gives it a chance to hold high overclocks without seeming like an F-22 on max engine propulsion. 

Different redesigns 

You definitely think about the two M.2 SATA spaces under the base administration entryway. But at the same time, there's more equipment you can supplant on the top. Simply evacuate one screw and cautiously pull off the customized plate, and you can supplant the hard drive (once more, constrained just to 9.5mm) and supplant the Smash in the event that you have to.

You can without much of a stretch access the hard drive and Slam from the top. 

Execution: Incredible, yet still generally calm 

Gaming PCs have made some amazing progress in only two years, thus have customer desires. Two years back, boisterous and gaming went connected at the hip. Today, individuals need their gaming as peaceful as could be allowed. Luckily you get that with the Predator 21 X, which can expedite the GPU and CPU loads without seeming like a Huey chopper is taking off before you. 

This may not seem like a major ordeal to you, yet keeping this much equipment cool under burden is a great achievement. Without a doubt, Acer's undertaking is made simpler because of the sheer size of the PC, however, it's as yet something the organization ought to get kudos for.

The back of the Predator 21X pursues the forceful lines seen in most gaming workstations today. 

Cinebench R15 Execution 

Our first test is Maxon's mainstream Cinebench 15 benchmark. It's a benchmark dependent on the organization's Cinema4D motor and scales well with clock speed and centre and string check. Generally, quad centres are quad centres, and the presentation is unsurprising for the workstations you see here. 

The Predator 21 X at its stock speed is somewhat pushed out by the MSI GT73VR by around 4 per cent. Overclock the Predator 21 X utilizing the inherent "Turbo" preset, however, and it releases an outcome 20 per cent quicker.

Generally, quad-centre PCs will in general pack bunch up in multi-strung errands yet the overclock on the Predator 21X gives it a decent advance in execution. 

Handbrake Execution 

A great many people don't do 3D rendering, however, so we additionally check CPU execution utilizing the free and prominent Handbrake encoder. For this test, we take a 30GB 1080p MKV record and convert it utilizing the Android Tablet preset. Like Cinebench, Handbrake cherishes CPU clock speed and CPU string and centre tally. 

In any case, not at all like Cinebench R15, which keeps running in one moment or three, Handbrake can take 45 minutes to keep running on a quad-centre, and well more than an hour to keep running on a double centre. On little workstations, this is a test for their cooling frameworks. On monster gaming workstations, it's actually no perspiration by any stretch of the imagination. 

Once more, the GT73VR pulls ahead marginally. (We speculate both CPU results were overclocked results, however, we never again have the PC to check.) And simply like with Cinebench R15, when you run the Predator 21 X in its Turbo preset, it's unmistakably before the pack. Everybody's sufficiently nearby, however, that the distinctions don't make a difference much.

On a long encoding undertaking, the overclock again gives the Predator 21X the gesture in execution yet dislike it's a 6-centre PC. 

Center earth: Shadow of Mordor Execution 

You don't purchase a PC like the Predator 21 X except if you need choice gaming execution, so our first gaming test is Center earth: Shadow of Mordor. We run the amusement at 1920x1080 goals utilizing the Ultra preset and the discretionary 4K surface pack. 

Similarly, as with the CPU benchmarks, we ran this test with the CPU and GPU both set to the Turbo overclock preset. The lift is genuinely noteworthy amid the overclock. 

On the off chance that you take a gander at the outcomes here somewhat harder, you might be distrustful of the Predator 21 X's designs slashes. All things considered, the stock execution is a truly peripheral advance up over the MSI GT73VR and its single GPU. 

A portion of the absence of greatness is likely because of the goals we set for this amusement. We run a large portion of our certifiable gaming tests at goals that most gaming workstations support: 1920x1080. The Predator's 120Hz G-Match up board has a local goal of 2560x1080 which is about 2.7 million pixels, versus the 2 million pixels of an FHD board.
