At the IFA Berlin, Acer was on a launch spree. It announced the world’s first curved gaming notebook, the Predator 21X. This flagship notebook is powered by the latest 7th gen Intel core processors and dual NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 graphics card. The curved screen that is the highlight of the laptop also features NVIDIA G-SYNC technology to ensure smooth and sharp gameplay. The screen resolution is 2560 x 1080 pixels.
Taking gaming experience to the next level is the integrated Tobii eye-tracking technology. This technology tracks a gamer’s eye with software, the notebook introduces new interactions like aiming, identifying enemies and taking cover simply by gazing at objects on the screen. Eye tracking also enhances the experience by providing infinite views whilst navigating treacherous paths and roads in a game.
The Predator 21X also ships with SoundPound 4.2+ (4 speakers and 2 subwoofers), 3-way audio and Dolby Audio for enhanced sound experience. The notebook will stay cool as it features 5 system fans, 3 of which are ultra-thin AeroBlade metal fans, to dissipate excess heat effectively for uninterrupted performance during intense gaming sessions.
The Predator 21 X has a full-sized mechanical keyboard featuring Cherry MX switches, with customizable RGB backlight settings for each individual key. Aside from its unique curved form factor, the Predator 21 X’s numeric keypad also touts a unique design that allows it to be flipped over and turned into a Precision Touchpad.
In addition to its flagship notebook, Acer announced 3 new Predator gaming monitors that also feature Tobii eye-tracking technology. Each new monitor features NVIDIA G-SYNC and high refresh rates for smooth gaming experiences without lag. The new Predator gaming monitors are available in different sizes. The first is the Predator Z271T (21-inch) that is full HD with 1800R curvature. Second is the Predator XB251HQT (24.5-inch) with flat ZeroFrame screen and full HD.
