The Predator series’ flagship desktop set includes the X34 gaming monitor along with the G3 CPU. The X34 features a 34-inch curved 21:9 display with NVIDIA G-sync that eliminates screen tearing and minimizes stuttering during gameplay for the price of P64,990. Meanwhile, the G3 platform features 6th generation Intel core i7 with an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 graphics card and will cost P59,999.

The line also comes with the Predator 15 gaming laptop, with a 6th gen i7 processor, a GTX 970M series graphics card, and the swappable FrostCore triple-fan system. The first 100 units of the Predator 15 will go on sale for P69,999 and will be virtual reality-compatible like the G3 desktop.

The Predator series' X34 and G3 boast power and performance with a sleek yet intimidating design.
