Acer gaming laptop like no other is coming

We were really stunned and amazed by all the revelations made by Jason Chen, President and CEO of Acer during the Acer Global event at IFA 2016 in Berlin Germany.  One of the major announcement is the new technology put in the Acer Predator 21 X.  It will be the world;s first ever curved screen notebook with the new eye-tracking monitor.

The new Acer Predator 21 X will also carry the latest 7th Generation Intel® Core™ processors,  Although this notebook seems to be bigger in size it is a power horse.  It's performance comes with 5 cooling fans and dual NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1080 GPUs in SLI for unmatched graphics performance.

Eye-tracking and Virtual Reality capable monitors

During the event Acer also announced their new gaming monitors.  What's unique about them is their ability to track your eyes and create a never before felt gaming experience.  Just imagine playing Assassins Creed which now follows your eye movement in order to make that stealth assassination instead of the mouse move - select - click option before.

One of the games which now features this technology is Assasin's Creed Rogue.  Check out the video below for more info.

Acer’s Predator 15 and 17 notebook series received updates with the latest GPUs featuring the NVIDIA Pascal™ architecture, making them ready for Virtual Reality (VR).

The introduction of these new technology into the Acer Predator gaming series edges up the brand in the gaming market.  We believe that in due time Acer will be the number 1 brand when it comes to gaming.

More on the Predator 21 X

The Predator 21 X takes the flagship spot in Acer’s gaming notebook series and is advanced beyond anything on the market today. It’s the world’s first notebook to offer a curved 21-inch IPS display (2560 x 1080), and when combined with wide-angle viewing, it delivers a truly immersive gaming experience. To bring gameplay immersion to the next level, the notebook also integrates Tobii eye-tracking technology for a new method of control that’s more intuitive and natural. Built-in eye-tracking hardware (infrared sensors and software) unlocks a completely new facet in gaming. By tracking 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.

With 7th Generation Intel® Core™ processors and dual NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1080 graphic cards in SLI, the Predator 21 X takes the AAA gaming experience to new heights. The curved screen also features NVIDIA® G-SYNC™ technology to ensure smooth and sharp gameplay in every scenario. Visuals aren’t the only star of the show: the Predator 21 X also ships with SoundPound 4.2+ (4 speakers and 2 subwoofers), 3-way audio and Dolby® Audio for truly pristine aural enjoyment. The notebook also features an advanced cooling architecture with 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.
