The last Predator generation with GTX 9xx GPU was a great hit and this was the laptop which proved that Acer can build one of the best gaming notebooks on the market. Several months after that we were in New York where the Taiwanese company announced Predator 17X (detailed review) – the ultimate gaming beast with a desktop GTX 980 under the hood and industry leading cooling system. The only drawback was the price (it costs around $2300) but we know that if we want cutting-edge, we have to prepare our wallets. Anyway, 17X turned out to be short-lived because NVIDIA hurried with its GTX 10xx series. And as you may guess…it’s a big deal.
The even better news – the GTX 10xx’s notebook versions are very close to their desktop siblings in terms of raw performance. The leap from GTX 9xx to 10xx is huge and that makes the gap between GTX 9xxM and their successors even bigger. Although we were recommending 17X as a good choice, now the game has changed, in a big way. The latest Predator 15 (G9-593) with GTX 1070 will wipe the floor with its bigger and (not much) older brother, and moreover – its price will be lower.
