The Predator Orion 3000 is a beast of a gaming desktop. It features up to a 10th gen Intel Core i7 processor, 8GB of RAM (upgradable to 64GB), and an Nvidia GeForce RTX2060 SUPER. Connectivity wise, it has the Stable Killer E2600 chip for high-speed gigabit network performance, and Wi-Fi 6 connectivity for faster, low-latency wireless performance.

To ensure the desktop stays cool, the Predator Orion 3000 is equipped with dual custom-engineered FrostBlade fans for optimal cooling while gaming. The RGB lighting on the fans can be customized together with the vertical light bars on the side, using the Predator Sense software, of course. On the sides, the tempered glass side panels are also EMI-compliant.
