The Predator 21 X (GX21-71) features dual NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 graphic cards in SLI and 7th generation Intel Core i7-7820HK processor. Supporting it is 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, 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. This ensures the highest priority traffic will always be put on the fastest and most reliable link. Thunderbolt 3 brings Thunderbolt to USB-C at speeds up to 40 Gbps.

 

The full-sized mechanical keyboard features Cherry MX Brown switches, with individually programmable backlit keys, offering 16.7 million colour options. Customers can swap out the black W, A, S and D keys with teal ones, using the included accessory kit. A unique numeric keypad allows it to be flipped over and turned into a Precision Touchpad.

The Predator 21 X features a new 3-way (tweeter, midrange, woofer) audio design which produces Hi-Fi quality sound and is powered by 4 speakers (2 tweeters, 2 midrange) and 2 subwoofers.

The Predator 21 X works with Windows Hello, supporting secure and password-free sign-in by recognizing user’s 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. In addition, the included Xsplit Gamecaster software allow gamers to record and edit videos and live streaming on Twitch and Youtube channels.

 

Located just above the keyboard on the right side is a metal maintenance panel, which provides access to the RAM modules and one 2.5-inch hard drive. The notebook ships with a blue dragon graphic on the panel, or it can be customized with a combination of graphics, nation flags and name engravings. In addition, the first 300 notebooks will include a limited edition series number on the panel.

The laptop ships with a custom ultra-durable hard-shell carrying trolley case which securely stores the notebook and accessories. Acer predator 21X is priced at Rs. 6,999,99 and  will be available on Flipkart.com.
