Review Of The Acer Predator Orion 7000

The Acer Predator Orion 7000 is a strong, stylish, and bold gaming computer that also operates at a respectable pace. But if you search about, you’ll find higher specifications with greater speed and versatility and your money will go further there.

Review of the Acer Predator Orion 7000: delivery area and design

Similar to the Orion 3000, the Acer Predator Orion 7000 may be used right immediately. This gaming PC also includes a premium mouse and keyboard set right out of the box, along with a power cable, a handbook, and a warranty card.
The top model is completely black when turned off and has a comparable appearance to its smaller sister in terms of design. Yet there is one glaring distinction. The Acer Predator Orion 7000 has an inside view, whereas the tempered glass side panel on the 3000 model was an optional feature.
And it already gives off a really clean, professional look, especially now that the comprehensive RGB lighting really shines. At 485 mm x 219 mm x 504.8 mm, the full PC is slightly larger than its sister, although it still appears to be a small computer while weighing more than 19 kg.

It is also apparent that there are more supporters now than there were when there were only 3000. There are two enormous Predator FrostBlade 2.0 fans in the front alone, and there are a total of four placed throughout the case.
Sadly, unlike its smaller sibling, the Orion 7000 lacks a useful handle. Instead, there is a power button that is offset but nearly identical. On the upper side, there is another unique feature: This USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-C connection houses an interchangeable 2.5-inch hard drive enclosure that allows you to quickly increase storage without having to open the System.

Review of the Acer Predator Orion 7000: Pricing and accessibility

Acer’s website (opens in new tab), as well as third-party merchants like Amazon, both sell the Acer Predator Orion 7000. With a 12th Gen Core i7 CPU, an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080, 16GB of DDR5 RAM, a 2TB HDD, and a 1TB SSD, you can purchase one for as little as $2,999.
The review unit, which Acer provided for us, is a premium model that retails for $4,499. You receive the same amount of storage, an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090, 32GB of DDR5 RAM, and a 12th Gen Core i9 CPU for that price. Even if that is substantial, $4,500 is still a lot of money for what you get, so if you have your eye on this PC, I advise waiting for a discount.

Review of the ports and upgradeability of the Acer Predator Orion 7000

As befits a large gaming desktop, the Acer Predator Orion 7000 comes with a full complement of ports. But, since the PC’s complement of USB-C ports is very limited, if you’ve made a significant investment in USB-C equipment you might wish to add a hub.
You get two USB 2.0 Type-A ports, three USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A ports, three more USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A ports, and one USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C port on the motherboard’s back. You also get a mic, audio in, and audio out connector, as well as an RJ-45 Ethernet jack.

Three DisplayPorts and one HDMI out are part of the additional four ports for connecting displays that the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 that is mounted in our review unit provides.
A hot-swappable disk bay, a complement of USB ports, and audio in/out are located up front for simpler cable management. There is a USB Type-C port, a microphone jack, an audio out, and a set of 3 USB 3.2 Type-A ports (one Gen 1, the other pair Gen 2). Also, there is a USB3.2 Gen 2 Type-C hot-swappable drive bay, allowing you to swiftly switch storage devices if, for example, you need to switch the SSD that contains all of your games for the one that contains your work files.

Performance of the Acer Predator Orion 7000

No matter how difficult the task, playing PC games, the Acer Predator Orion 7000 is a beast. For instance, we fully optimized the Final Fantasy VII Remake’s 4k resolution, HDR, ray-tracing, and 120FPS settings.
To our utter surprise, the Orion 7000 performed at a maximum frame rate of 256FPS with all of those options enabled. At the same time, Hitman 3 runs incredibly smoothly, averaging 103FPS for the Dubai benchmark and 84FPS on average for the Dartmoor benchmark.

The PredatorSense tool is another option, which enables you to precisely overclock your System and increase fan speeds to compensate for it. The function is fantastic and really simple to use and customize.
The RTX 3080 and Core i7 in the Orion 7000’s combo produced some incredible benchmark results. This computer couldn’t be beaten even by the Maingear Turbo, which has a more powerful graphics card.
It’s noteworthy how, when compared to the Turbo, the PC games we benchmarked with mainly tied or higher scores didn’t produce higher framerates. Still, it makes sense in view of the small improvement in the chips sector.
Despite this, the Orion 7000 is still a top-tier gaming computer that devours taxing and improperly tuned games. And because of the well-designed cooling system, it continues to function without becoming a furnace under your desk.
