Acer released their high-end gaming beast in India. “Acer Predator 21x”.
It costs Rs.6,99,999. WHY & can it justify its pricing, let’s find out.
SO, Acer predator 21x is not for everyone, Acer was focused towards gamers while building this machine. It has a unique design. The screen on predator 21x is massive & curved. It has a 21-inch screen size & resolution of 2560×1080. Games these days are graphics hungry a machine has to do a lot to keep up with an optimum frame per second. But this is not a case with predator 21x because it has 2x NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX 1080 graphics cards. One GTX 1080 can is sufficient for most of the games but 2 GTX 1080 can perform & crush any chart of a benchmark (game fps). This new Acer machine is VR ready too.
Acer 21x powered by an overclocked Intel i7 processor (7th gen) & huge 64GB Ram DDR4. If this is not enough to surprise you then, it has 2 PCIe SSD that can perform over 3000 MB/s write speed.
For cooling, Acer includes 5x cooling fans inside its chase & 9 heat pipes to sunk out the heat.

DOWNFALL of this beast is its weight. This thing weighs about 8.85 kg. Which makes it less portable & battery life on the laptop is poor. Even these high-end specification & feature cannot fully justify its price. If you have Rs. 7,00,000 you can build a far better machine than this.
“I cannot afford this laptop but I wish, I could”.
these are just my opinions on this product. Acer never let us down, this was Acer predator 21x.
