Acer Predator Orion 9000

 

Although the Acer Predator Orion 9000 costs a pretty penny (okay, hundreds of thousands of pretty pennies) and features a divisive design, this gaming desktop delivers top-end performance with the most cutting-edge parts available.

Performance monster, including greater-than-60fps 4K gaming. Tons of RAM and storage. Clean, well-designed interior.

Huge and heavy. Plastic build. Case style won't appeal to everyone.

Bottom Line: Although the Acer Predator Orion 9000 costs a pretty penny (okay, hundreds of thousands of pretty pennies) and features a divisive design, this gaming desktop delivers top-end performance with the most cutting-edge parts available.

Acer Predator Orion 9000 Review | Trusted Reviews

 

The Orion 9000 has the potential to be a perfectly impressive desktop gaming PC. It's mighty powerful, has plenty of cooling and has several extra features.

Masses of performance ; Plenty of upgrade potential ; Ample cooling

Too bulky ; A bit noisy ; Overkill for most gamers

A high price and love it or loath it design makes the Orion 9000 a hard sell right now.

Acer Predator Orion 9000 review

 

This ultimate gaming PC will make you drunk with power

Most performant gaming PC we’ve reviewed ; Mostly tool-less upgradability ; Sharp, bold styling

Extra-dimensional price ; Can’t max out Nvidia G-Sync HDR monitor ; Loaded with bloatware

Unlimited power for a nigh-unlimited price, the Acer Predator Orion 9000 delivers the best performance from a gaming PC we seen, but it’s a machine few can afford and an even smaller subset of users will need.

Acer Predator Orion 9000 Review: Go Big or Go Home

 

Acer's Predator Orion 9000 is the company's biggest and most powerful desktop PC offering, with options for up to Intel Core i7-8700K or Core i9-7980XE processors, memory capacities up to 128GB and up to dual GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics cards in SLI....

Top-tier performance ; Push-button overclocking ; Easy-to-use software

Expensive ; High GPU temperatures ; Too large

The Acer Predator Orion 9000 is the most powerful gaming PC the company has to offer. The extreme configuration we tested may not be in the realm of possibility for most people’s wallets, but the $2,500 Intel Core i7-8700K and single GTX 1080...
