We all know how hard it is to build a gaming PC in the current year. That's why gamers are looking at pre-builts for their hardware needs. At this point, buying one to strip the GPU out of it is still better than paying scalper prices. Besides, you get a (mostly) functional PC, too. Acer has refreshed its Predator Orion 3000 gaming desktop with Intel Rocket Lake processors and Nvidia Ampere graphics cards. The new Predator Orion 3000 (P03-630) gaming desktop will be hit shelves in July 2021, starting at EUR 1,099 (US$1,337). Coincidence? We think not.

On the CPU side of things, one can configure the Acer Predator Orion 3000 (P03-630) with up to an Intel Core i7-11700. Acer hasn't mentioned the exact variant, so we can't tell if it is supports overclocking. Despite the attached mockup showing an RTX 3080, GPU options on the Acer Predator Orion 3000 (P03-630) max out at the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070. The gaming desktop ships with DDR4 3,200 RAM out of the box. Acer says that the PC can be configured with up to 2TB NVMEs SSDs. One can also add additional storage via SATA hard drives.

No gaming PC is complete without RGB, and the Acer Predator Orion 3000 (P03-630) has copious amounts of it. It ships with four configurable RGB LED fans and a tempered glass side panel. Some LED strips run along the case's front, too. The case's design hasn't changed a lot, by the looks of it. Our Intel Core i7-11700 review determined that the CPU runs quite hot under sustained loads. Acer appears to be using some proprietary cooler for the processor. The option to replace it with an AIO would be excellent. Lastly, the Acer Predator Orion 3000 (P03-630) ships with a Wi-Fi 6 radio and Killer E2600 Gigabit Ethernet for networking.
