Acer Unleashes the Predator Orion X Desktop

Acer announced the latest addition to its lineup of powerful gaming desktops, the Predator Orion X. The compact gaming PC packs a massive punch as it combines up to the special edition 13th Gen Intel® Core i9-13900KS processor and up to a liquid-cooled NVIDIA® GeForce RTX 4090 GPU, custom-engineered to fit all this power in a small, portable chassis.

The space capsule-inspired design was crafted with multiple “zones” to house the CPU, GPU and liquid cooling system, an impressive feat for a desktop of this size. The upgradeable gaming PC also comes with a removable magnetic front cover and metal side panels to protect the vital internals and a mechanical arm-like headset cradle at the top.

Acer also announced new additions to its range of curved screens with the Nitro XZ452CU V and Predator X34 V gaming monitors. With nearly 45 inches of viewing space, the Nitro X2452CU V’s AMD FreeSync Premium Pro-supported DQHD monitor and rapid 165 Hz refresh rate allow for seamless viewing experience when playing games or multitasking.

The Predator X34 V’s OLED UWQHD panel, DCI-P3 99% color gamut and VESA DisplayHDR True Black 400 let players experience brilliant visuals and play games in their full glory. ​

Predator Orion X: Out of this World Features and DIY-friendly Design

The Predator Orion X is equipped with 13th Gen Intel i9-13900KS processor, which features 24 cores, 32 threads, 150W TDP with the latest hybrid architecture, and can hit a record-setting 6 Ghz for high-powered processor performance. Leveraging the ultra-efficient NVIDIA Ada Lovelace architecture, the small gaming PC houses up to a liquid-cooled NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 GPU block that comes with 24 GB of G6X memory to deliver the ultimate experience for gamers and creators.

To fit a GeForce RTX 4090 GPU of this stature, it adds a custom-engineered, liquid-cooled cooling module to the standard heat sink fans, making it possible to combine some of the strongest gaming components within a condensed frame.

The Predator Orion X’s space capsule-inspired chassis weighs only 9 kg (19.8 lbs) and features a modified layout with three special “zones” to allow for greater customization freedom and performance across the board.

Zone 1 is specifically designated for greater accessibility to the CPU, PSU, and SSD, while Zone 2 keeps the VGA and dual 2.5-inch SATA HDD slots within striking distance. Zone 3 helps keep its powerful internals at bay as it stows a 240 mm CPU liquid cooler, strategically stationed near Zone 1.

Topping off its unique design features, the vital zones are protected with metal side panels, which can be removed using a small latch for easy upgrading and comes with a rotatable robotic-like arm on the top that functions as a headset rest.
