Super quiet and superb performance. Dual Power Brick. May not able to handle 4K ultra settings at 60fps in GTAV and Witcher 3

This machine is super quiet even running Overwatch, GTAV, the Division, Witcher 3 at Ultra Max out settings at 4K. I can get consistant 60 fps @ 60 Hz on my LG 27UD88-W 4K monitor. GTA V running at 1080p can ultra out all setting and still maintain 60 fps. However, it takes a significant hit at 4K, dipping down to 20fps. Anyway, if you want to know more about the performance, go check out the benchmark on GTX 1080.

For the price, I would say you are paying for the compactness and the Predator G1 alien exoskeleton armor design. It’s not top notch performance but it’s also not top notch cost. Don’t expect any overclocking either. However, I really enjoy the included RGB mechanical keyboard and mouse. I also like the retractable hanger for gaming headphones on both side of the system, so I can hang my headphone on left or right or even both sides depending on how you position your Predator.

There is an empty expansion bay for 2.5" SSD or HDD. The included USB 3.1 Type-C port and SD slot are absolutely amazing. However, there is still a DVD drive not Blu-Ray which is kind of dissapointing. That compact optical bay is just the type that is used in standard notebook. I think that slot can be replaced with another SSD with a rack. The power brick is a combination of two separate gaming notebook AC units, each at 230W, total 460W. Both AC adapters are mounted on a black and red rack, which really converts a cumbersome power brick into something fancy and cool looking. The Asus G20CB also has similar power brick design, makes me wonder if Acer and Asus are copying each other.

Both the Predator G1 and Asus G20CB are very similar in terms of compactness and internal hardware design. Both are VR ready. I would prefer the Asus G20CB for the exteria appearance; although the Predator G1 also looks cool with more lighting options especially the exoskeleton armor-like exteria. However, Asus G20CG lacks SD card slot, where the Predator has the SD card slot and one USB 3.1 Type-C in the front while Asus has one USB 3.1 Type-C in the back. I wish the Predator G1 also has thunderbolt 3.

The RGB lighting is exceptional. Fully customizable via the PredatorSense. You can change 3 Lighting zones: the Logo, V Badge, and Highlights LEDs.

  • Logo Light Patterns: Marquee (Flashes quick and slow), Pulsing (Slow like breathing), None (Solid)
  • V Badge: Meteor Showers (Lights move from top to buttom quick), Marquee (Left to right, then right to left), Pulsing, Music (React to system sound), None (Solid)
  • Highlights: Marquee, Pulsing, Music, and None

Finally, if you are not too concerned about the upgradability, and care about compactness desktop setting for VR and extreme gaming, the Predator G1 is a very competitve selection.
