It is priced at $8,999 (Approximately Rs 6.1 lakh). In terms of features, the device offers a curved 21-inch IPS display with a 2560 x 1080 resolution. It claims to delivers a truly immersive gaming experience, especially when combined with the notebook’s eye-tracking technology from Tobii.

The curved screen also features NVIDIA G-SYNC technology. It is powered by dual NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 graphic cards in SLI and an overclockable 7th Generation Intel Core i7-7820HK processor. Addtionally, it includes 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. In addition, Acer states that the Killer DoubleShot Pro automatically picks the fastest network connection (Ethernet or wireless) and sends all high priority traffic over that interface while standard traffic is sent over the other. Thunderbolt 3 brings Thunderbolt to USB-C at speeds up to 40 Gbps. The Predator 21 X features a new 3-way (tweeter, midrange, and woofer) audio design which produces HiFi quality sound and is powered by 4 speakers (2 tweeters, 2 midrange) and 2 subwoofers to produce a full spectrum of sound. In addition, the notebook also features an advanced cooling architecture consisting of 5 system fans (including 3 ultra-thin AeroBlade metal fans) and 9 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, offering 16.7 million color options. Customers can swap out the black W, A, S and D keys with teal ones, using the included accessory kit. A numeric keypad allows it to be flipped over and turned into a Precision Touchpad.
