Acer Predator 17 X with Core i7-7820HK Kaby Lake specifications leak
Several online resellers are jumping the gun and have listed the upcoming Acer Predator 17 X gaming notebook ahead of any official announcements from the manufacturer itself. Accordingly, the next Predator 17 will sport the next generation (and still unannounced) Kaby Lake Core i7-7820HK CPU with unlocked multiplier for end-user overclocking. The only known SKU at this time is the Predator 17 X (GX-792-70DR) with the article number NH.Q1FEG.005.
The expected launch price of this particular Predator 17 X SKU could reach 4000 Euros with the following core specifications:
- 17.3-inch 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) IPS display w/ 100 percent AdobeRGB coverage
- Intel Core i7-7820HK CPU
- GeForce GTX 1080 w/ 8 GB GDDR5X VRAM
- 64 GB DDR4 RAM (4x SODIMM)
- 3x 512 GB SSDs in RAID 0/1 + 2 TB 5400 RPM HDD
- Gigabit Ethernet, USB Type-C w/ Thunderbolt 3, HDMI, DisplayPort
- Windows 10 Home
- 65 Wh battery
- 423 x 321.5 x 44.95 mm
It remains to be seen if the Predator 17 X can actually ship before the Holiday season, but a more formal revealing will likely come this CES 2017 instead. It is also unknown if the screen will have the same 120 Hz/5 ms options as currently found on some MSI and Clevo barebones. The Acer will compete directly against the MSI GT73VR and the equivalent Asus G752VS or Clevo Barebones.
