To enhance immersion even further to the next level, the laptop also integrates Tobii eye-tracking technology.

You can identify enemies, aim, and take cover simply by gazing at objects on the screen.

Featuring an advanced cooling architecture with five system fans, of which three are ultra-thin AeroBlade™ metal fans, the Predator 21 X is capable of keeping all its features running at optimal temperatures via effective thermal management for super-smooth performance during intense gaming sessions. The Killer DoubleShot Pro enables Ethernet and Wi-Fi connections to work together for the ultimate high-speed attack, while the preloaded Acer PredatorSense software allows users to control and customize the whole gaming experience from one central interface.
