Acer today announced the latest addition to its lineup of powerful gaming desktops, the Predator Orion X. The compact gaming PC packs a massive punch as it combines up to the special edition 13th Gen Intel® Core™ i9-13900KS processor and up to a liquid-cooled NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 4090 GPU, custom-engineered to fit all this power in a small, portable chassis. The space capsule-inspired design was crafted with multiple “zones” to house the CPU, GPU, air boost, and liquid cooling system, an impressive feat for a desktop of this size. The upgradeable gaming PC also comes with a removable magnetic front cover and metal side panels to protect the vital internals and a mechanical arm-like headset cradle at the top.

Acer also announced new additions to its range of curved screens with the Nitro XZ452CU V and Predator X34 V gaming monitors. With nearly 45 inches of viewing space, the Nitro X2452CU V’s AMD FreeSync™ Premium Pro-supported DQHD monitor and rapid 165 Hz refresh rate allow for seamless viewing experience when playing games or multitasking. The Predator X34 V’s OLED UWQHD panel, DCI-P3 99% color gamut and VESA DisplayHDR™ True Black 400 let players experience brilliant visuals and play games in their full glory. 

Predator Orion X: Out of this World Features and DIY-friendly Design

The Predator Orion X is equipped with 13th Gen Intel i9-13900KS processor, which features 24 cores, 32 threads, 150W TDP with the latest hybrid architecture, and can hit a record-setting 6 Ghz for high-powered processor performance. Leveraging the ultra-efficient NVIDIA Ada Lovelace architecture, the small gaming PC houses up to a liquid-cooled NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 GPU block that comes with 24 GB of G6X memory to deliver the ultimate experience for gamers and creators. To fit a GeForce RTX 4090 GPU of this stature, it adds a custom-engineered, liquid-cooled cooling module to the standard heat sink fans, making it possible to combine some of the strongest gaming components within a condensed frame.

Predator Orion X

The Predator Orion X’s space capsule-inspired chassis weighs only 9 kg (19.8 lbs) and features a modified layout with three special “zones” to allow for greater customization freedom and performance across the board. Zone 1 is specifically designated for greater accessibility to the CPU, PSU, and SSD, while Zone 2 keeps the VGA and dual 2.5-inch SATA HDD slots within striking distance. Zone 3 helps keep its powerful internals at bay as it stows the air boost and a 240 mm CPU liquid cooler, strategically stationed near Zone 1. Topping off its unique design features, the vital zones are protected with metal side panels, which can be removed using a small latch for easy upgrading and comes with a rotatable robotic-like arm on the top that functions as a headset rest.

Storage-wise, gamers and creators have no reason to fret as the Predator Orion X already comes with up to 32 GB DDR5-5600[[i]], two M.2 2400 SSDs (up to 1 TB each) and an illuminated, hot swap NVMe M.2 SSD drive bay for added capacity. The DIY gaming rig also offers fast and seamless connectivity with Intel® Killer E3100G and Intel® Killer Wi-Fi 6E AX211 and a generous amount of ports including two USB3.2 Gen1 (one Type-C and one Type-A), a mic and combo jack at the front, a USB 3.2 Gen2x2 Type-C port, three USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-A[1] ports, two USB 2.0 and a RJ45 located at the rear.

The Predator Orion X comes with PredatorSense 4.0 utility app, allowing gamers to monitor the system for overclocking and customizing RGB lighting preferences using a personalized, intuitive interface geared around maximizing the system’s true potential.
