The curved screen also features NVIDIA G-SYNC technology, which will ensure smooth and sharp gameplay. Beneath the notebook’s curved hood lies a powerful engine.

It comes with 64GB of DDR4-2400 memory, up to four 512GB solid state drives in RAID 0 configuration (including 2 NVMe PCIe SSDs, which are up to 5x faster than SATA SSDs) and a 7200 RPM hard drive of 1TB capacity.
The notebook also features an advanced cooling architecture consisting of five system fans (including three ultra-thin AeroBlade metal fans) and nine heat pipes. It also includes Acer DustDefender, which removes dust build-up and improves heat dissipation, and Acer’s CoolBoost app, that can be used to adjust the fans’ airflow to deliver extra cooling performance during heavy use.
Its full-sized mechanical keyboard features Cherry MX Brown switches, with individually programmable backlit keys and customers can swap out the black W, A, S and D keys with teal ones, using the included accessory kit.
The Predator 21 X works with Windows Hello, supporting secure and password-free sign-in by recognizing your face. Preloaded Acer PredatorSense software allows users to control and customize the whole gaming experience from one central interface, including overclocking, lighting and fan control.
