We all know Predator as Acers top of the line gaming brand of products. If you have ever been to the Acer Predator party at Pax East, then you would know they spare no expense. Don’t let your shade for massive corporate big-box style companies get in the way of deciding the fate of your next PC. Today we take a look at the Acer Predator Orion 7000 Gaming PC featuring a 12th Gen Intel Core i-9, 2TB SSD, an Nvidia RTX 3090 all in a custom Predator case expected to be sold in retail in late March, early April 2022.
Please note, because this is an early sample, it may or may not match a configuration sold in the U.S.
Predator products always have those fire designs, bottom line they just always look dope. This case is no different, someone please talk to me about these ARGB deep dish fans? Yes, DEEP DISH! Like you would see on a supercar. I want this, I need this in my life. No cap the fan game has changed I will not be able to look at frontal fans on a case the same ever again. A side-mounted GPU with a large chamber under it for your PSU and other hardware. Components or not any PC builder or gamer would appreciate this design of this case which at this time is not sold separately.
In this specific build, we are basically clawing at the edge of the best PC components on the market right now. At its core, you have a 12th Gen Intel i9 processor, an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090, PCIe Gen 5, and of course DDR5 4800 Hz memory. The “Deep Dish” fans are actually called Predator Frostblade 2.0 fans which perform as well as they look. Predator also adds its own custom AIO CPU liquid cooler to keep that processor temperature down. The bottom line is this hardware will play anything, stream anything, or edit anything at maximum graphics settings you can think of in the gaming world today.
Once again, we end up with the grand old question. What is the RGB like? It’s next level. Its ARGB which gives you control over each individual LED light. All fans, case lighting, and CPU cooler lighting. Honestly, I can’t believe they missed the boat on memory lighting, hello? Predator sense software takes control of everything onboard the PC including overclocking, fan control, and ARGB lighting control. It’s a decent program I think it lacks a bit of customization some of the other softwares have, but it gets the job done. If you are really serious about overclocking, you are going to want to use an aftermarket program like Afterburner anyway.
I think its best custom feature is the Hotswap, you get to instantly change drives via a 2.5-inch USB3.2 Gen2 Type-C Hotswap drive bay. If you are a content creator alongside of a full-time gamer this is a massive feature for you! Endless on-demand storage. Predator just has those all day long. In the end, these are the types of features that set apart a PC from its competition. Take notes GLYFE Nation some of these features are Acer proprietary and you will not be able to find them on a custom-built PCs. Is it worth it to you?
