PRICES, PACKAGING AND EQUIPMENT

Assembly prices start from 2,500 euros – that’s about 220 thousand rubles. The tested configuration – with i9-13900KF, RTX 4090, 32 GB of RAM and a 1 TB SSD – can be found to order in one of the popular networks at a price of about 490 thousand rubles.

The PC is delivered in a large corrugated cardboard box with black and white printing on the outside and color space wallpaper inside – apparently with a hint of the Orion constellation. It folds out completely, which is very convenient both for accessing the computer and for disposing of the packaging.

Inside, the system unit is wrapped in a bag and two forms made of foamed polyethylene. The rest of the set is packed in a separate box. It included:

APPEARANCE AND FEATURES

The manufacturers were clearly inspired by science fiction, because Orion X looks like a spaceship. The menacing and aggressive design creates a strong and powerful image. At the same time, it is quite compact – the body dimensions are 219x504x485 mm, the internal volume does not exceed 15.5 liters. The chassis and sides of the black body are made of metal, and the bottom, top and front are decorated with plastic parts.

The front is covered with a glossy magnetic panel made of transparent plexiglass. Behind it lies a raised panel with backlight lines, which works synchronously with other luminous elements on the SVO and video card, as well as a slot with an external M.2 2280 drive.

This is the first important feature of the Orion X – thanks to the USB-C interface for connection, it is hot-swappable. However, there is no SSD by default, although you can already find thermal pads inside for heat removal.

Just below there is a niche with front connection connectors. The interfaces are standard for modern cases - USB-C Gen1, USB-A Gen1, a combined audio jack for a headset/headphones and a separate 3.5 mm jack for a microphone. The PC power button is located on the front panel at the top. It is equipped with an interesting structure, which, combined with built-in lighting, imitates an endless tunnel. It seems like a small thing, but it looks nice.

On top of the case you can install a mechanical folding stand for the headset, similar to a crane. It is made mainly of metal, but there are also plastic parts, as well as a rubberized insert in the place where the headphones are hung. The mechanism built into the base allows you to rotate the structure right and left by 90 degrees.

Another feature was the division of the building into zones. On the front there are special levers marked (1,2,3), which allow you to unlock the panels on the sides and top. However, before doing this, you will have to unscrew the fixing screws at the back. It also indicates which zones are assigned what.
The first one on the right side of the PC is dedicated to the CPU, the second one from the left is dedicated to the GPU, and the third one from the top is dedicated to water cooling.

Accordingly, the first zone contains the motherboard and all the equipment on board, and next to it is a power supply with modular cable connections (there is certainly no room in the case for extra wires). The cable management is well done and the motherboard is mini-ITX. It is equipped with an L-shaped radiator for cooling the VRM, installation of an additional M.2 drive is implemented using a riser card, which is placed on top of the first M.2 slot occupied by the SSD. Acer hasn't forgotten about drives of a larger form factor - there are a couple of SATA connectors, but you'll have to look for a place to place them in the second zone.

The second zone is devoted almost entirely to the video card, which is connected to the motherboard using a riser cable. Below and in front of it there are two spaces for 2.5-inch drives. In our build, the GPU is a liquid-cooled RTX 4090.

The compact water block is built directly into the radiator. For such a solution to work as it should, there needs to be an unobstructed flow of air, so the side panels are perforated not only to demonstrate the backlight.

A water cooling system with a 240 mm radiator and two fans is located on top in the third zone. It serves both to cool the CPU and removes all the hot air from other components through the perforations on top of the case.

By default, SSD storage is divided into system and logical disks. The latter eats up only 6 GB of the total storage space – it stores drivers for Windows. Among them there are no applications from Acer, which will have to be downloaded from the official website.

For testing, we installed the home version of Windows 11, as well as the Acer Care Center and PredatorSense applications. Care Center is needed for PC maintenance - diagnosing errors, automatically updating the system and creating an OS backup.

PredatorSense has changed noticeably in design since version 4, but not in terms of capabilities. The software allows you to control the backlight, cooling system (Auto, Maximum and Custom) and CPU operating modes (Quiet, Default, Extreme and Turbo). Additionally, you can monitor the performance of the main components and control TrueHarmony sound effects (only for audio devices connected via analog output). In addition, it is allowed to edit or create usage scenarios - for example, so that when a certain application is launched, a specified operating mode of the processor, cooling and backlight is launched.

When idle, NWiNFO64 shows on average the following temperatures:

Intel Core i9-13900KF – 39 degrees
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 – 36 degrees
SK Hynix HFS001TEJ9X125N – 46 degrees
The water cooling system does its job very well. Under long-term load, the average processor temperature in extreme and turbo modes remains in the range from 55 to 60 degrees. But the Quiet mode raises questions. When it is turned on, the fans operate at a minimum of 1000 rpm, and the average value reaches 79 degrees. On the other hand, in a standard room environment the computer is not audible at all, while at peak loads in Turbo mode the noise level reaches 45-50 dB.

If you switch the CPU cooling system to maximum 5,000 rpm, you have to play with headphones. But maximum temperatures decrease by 5-15 degrees.

We tested the processor performance both in the traditional benchmark test Cinebench R23 and in the fresh Cinebench 2024. The new version greatly increased the rendering load, and also added a GPU test, which was last included in the benchmark about 10 years ago.

Next we tested a single SSD. Under load, the M.2 drive from SK Hynix heated up to 62 degrees and showed good results for a drive on the fourth generation of the PCIe interface. The operating speed in Crystal Disk Mark was 6832 MB/s for reading and 6403 MB/s for writing. The AS SSD test shows more modest results – 5734 MB/s for reading and 5476 MB/s for writing.

In graphics tests and in-game benchmarks, the system performs simply excellent. For testing, we used a TV that supports 4K and 60Hz, so the tests were able to play at three common resolutions. The central processor was set to “Turbo” mode due to its efficiency, and the cooling system operated in automatic mode.

In the Superposition benchmark on the Unigine 2 engine, the test was carried out on all available default settings:

  • 720p Low – 44926 points (from 171 to 506 FPS, average 336)
  • 1080p Average – 41429 points (from 168 to 479 FPS, average 309)
  • 1080p High – 40580 points (from 161 to 438 FPS, average 303)
  • 1080p Extreme – 20007 points (from 127 to 189 FPS, average 149)
  • 4K Optimized – 30048 points (from 151 to 283 FPS, average 224)
  • 8K Optimized – 12125 points (from 78 to 108 FPS, average 90)

The second test was the Chinese Boundary benchmark, which focuses on the use of ray tracing and DLSS technologies. Tests were carried out with tracing and DLSS in “quality” and “ultra-performance” modes:

  • FHD (1920×1080), RTX On, DLSS Quality – 237.9 FPS (from 52 to 745 FPS)
  • FHD (1920×1080), RTX On, DLSS Ultra Performance – 446.1 FPS (51 to 1100 FPS)
  • QHD (2560×1440), RTX On, DLSS Quality – 166.8 FPS (from 24 to 552 FPS)
  • QHD (2560×1440), RTX On, DLSS Ultra-performance – 343 FPS (from 54 to 829 FPS)
  • UHD (3840×2160), RTX On, DLSS Quality – 82.2 FPS (from 6 to 418 FPS)
  • UHD (3840×2160), RTX On, DLSS Ultra Performance – 211.2 FPS (15 to 584 FPS)

In the Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition test, we ran the test at three basic graphics settings at resolutions of 1080p, 1440p and 2160p, as well as at maximum settings with DLSS and other proprietary technologies from NVIDIA. The results are as follows:

  • 1080p Minimum – 23490 (Extremely high)
  • 1080p Standard – 23361 (Extreme High)
  • 1080p High – 21696 (Extreme high)
  • 1080p Maximum, DLSS Off – 19725 (Extreme High)
  • 1440p Minimum – 23654 (Extremely high)
  • 1440p Standard – 23342 (Extreme High)
  • 1440p High – 21465 (Extreme high)
  • 1440p Maximum, DLSS Off – 17826 (Extremely High)
  • 2160p Minimum – 22978 (Extremely high)
  • 2160p Standard – 18880 (Extreme High)
  • 2160p High – 15335 (Extreme High)
  • 2160p Maximum, DLSS Off – 11213 (Very High)
  • 2160p Maximum, DLSS On – 13970 (Extreme High)

We also achieved excellent results in the Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker performance test:

1080p Standard – 36954 (Extreme High)
1080p High – 34245 (Extreme High)
1080p Maximum – 36185 (Extremely high)
1440p Standard – 37128 (Extreme)
1440p High – 33788 (Extreme High)
1440p Maximum – 34640 (Extremely high)
2160p Standard – 34825 (Extreme High)
2160p High – 26901 (Extreme high)
2160 Maximum – 25919 (Extremely high)
