Acer Predator 21X gaming portable workstation survey

Declared at IFA 2016 in Berlin, the Acer Predator 21X is seemingly the most in fact great gaming portable PC going to the market, highlighting not one but rather two Nvidia GTX 1080s and that’s just the beginning – yet how is it really to utilize? We ran hands-on with the brute of a gaming tablet amid IFA 2016, and this is what we thought.

REVIEW | HANDS-ON WITH THE ACER PREDATOR 21X

Amid IFA 2016 in Berlin, Acer reported the Acer Predator 21X, apparently the most in fact noteworthy gaming portable workstation going to the market. Highlighting not one but rather two Nvidia GTX 1080s and a lovely 21in bended show, the Predator 21X stole the show – however how is it really to utilize? We ran hands-on with the mammoth of a gaming portable workstation amid IFA 2016, and this is what we thought.

UK RELEASE DATE AND PRICING

Things being what they are, when are we prone to see Acer’s restrained mammoth discharged in the UK? While the discharge date is yet to be set, an Asus rep let us know at IFA 2016 that we ought to anticipate that it will be accessible to buy mid 2017, conceivably with more data declared at CES 2017.

DESIGN AND BUILD

Obviously, the main thing we saw about the Acer Predator 21X when we went hands-on at IFA 2016 was its size. Pictures essentially don’t do it equity – the portable workstation is immense. What’s more, with that bigness comes weight, and the Predator 21X unquestionably isn’t lightweight. The tablet tips the scales at an incredible 8KG, which to us makes it all the more a versatile desktop instead of a portable workstation in light of the fact that unless you’re military prepared, you won’t bear this in your rucksack.

FEATURES AND SPEC

Anyway, what does this brute of a gaming tablet include? Indeed, how about we begin with the illustrations card – or representation cards, as the Predator 21X elements not one but rather two Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080s with SLI. This implies you’ll have the capacity to run basically any amusement with the most astounding graphical quality with no slack or screen tearing, and can control the most recent VR headsets like the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift gracefully.

Alongside the amazing cluster of illustrations cards, the Predator 21X components a seventh era Intel Core processor, despite the fact that which will rely on upon the particular you pick when acquiring the portable PC. This ought to furnish clients with blisteringly quick reaction times, even with all the more graphically requesting amusements and processor hungry applications. We, obviously, encountered no slack or stammer amid our time with the Predator 21X, in spite of the fact that we just played through a choice of demos gave to us.

It doesn’t stop there either, as straightforwardly underneath the show sits Tobii eye-following programming that gives you a chance to utilize your eyes to finish different undertakings in-amusement, as we discovered. Amid our Tobii demo we could basically take a gander at the edges of the show to turn the in-amusement camera and check out our virtual ship, then in another part of the demo we went for adversaries essentially by taking a gander at them and terminated by hitting the space bar.

SOFTWARE

The Acer Predator 21X comes pressing Windows 10, obviously, taking into account SLI bolster. We didn’t see much on the portable workstation as far as bloatware, in spite of the fact that this may change before dispatch.

OUR VERDICT

Acer’s Predator 21X is actually noteworthy, gloating two Nvidia GTX 1080 representation cards, a 21in bended show (which are both world firsts) and Tobii eye-following programming, yet we envision it’ll be excessively costly for the larger part of gamers. Tipping the scales at 8KG it isn’t lightweight fit as a fiddle or shape, and will presumably represent most as a desktop regardless of its portable PC frame consider.

    8 kilo`s? And you call it a portable workstation? ahahaha At first i thought that was a typo! Well, it looks like not… Bearing this thing may be a good workout for those poor gamers who spend 24 hours a day in front of the screen and have no time to attend the gym… for example 😉
    But i assume that not everyone can afford such a pricey toy. Whatever, i would prefer having something lighter so i could take it with me easily. This machine is good but clumsy. So even if i was wealthy (and healthy so i could bear it 😉 ) i would have a good think before getting it. Its weight may cause a lot of problems, i have no doubt about that.
