Predator Triton 300
At just 19.9 mm (0.78″), the Predator Triton 300 notebook (PT315-53) is a beast that users can comfortably pack into a backpack or briefcase. Its all-metal chassis holds an 11th generation Intel Core H-series processor capable of reaching 4.6 GHz, an NVIDIA GeForce laptop GPU up to RTX 3080 and up to 32 GB of DDR4 memory, more than enough to run the newest games effortlessly.
From there, users can choose where they will direct all this power: those who want their games to come to life, can opt for a 165 Hz QHD screen, while those who want all the possible advantages can opt for a stunningly fast screen. 360 Hz FHD. And the icing on the cake is a 3 ms overdrive response that guarantees a smooth and peaceful experience when using all the power of this machine.
The notebook has two fans to keep everything at the right temperature, even in the most complicated parts of the heaviest games. One of these fans is the brand new Acer AeroBlade™ 5th generation 3D. These custom-engineered fans come with eighty-nine 0.08 mm (0.003″) metal blades and a bionic wing tip design that allows more airflow with minimal turbulence, resulting in better flow. 55% better than a plastic fan.
Ensuring cooling even further, dedicated heat pipes for the GPU and CPU, as well as strategically placed air inlets and outlets help maximize cooling efficiency for greater performance.
A 4-zone RGB backlight allows each user to add their personal touch to the notebook, while the colored WASD and arrow keys make the movement keys stand out. The DTS audio®: X Ultra turns any pair of headphones or speakers into a 360 ° surround sound system, also helping users better understand their opponents' movements - or making their favorite music and movies sound realistic. Intel Ethernet® Killer™ E2600G, Intel™ Wi-Fi 6 AX1650i and Control Center 2.0 allow for lower latency and a variety of ports that offer players many options. With HDMI 2.1 to connect an external monitor, a pair of USB 3.2 Gen 1 ports and a USB 3.2 Gen 2 port, a Mini DisplayPort 1.4 and a USB Type-C (Thunderbolt™ 4), the possibilities for peripherals are almost endless.
Predator Helios 300
The new Predator Helios 300 is equipped with everything players need to beat the competition, starting with the latest 11th generation Intel® Core H-series processors, an NVIDIA® GeForce RTX ™ 3070 laptop GPU and up to 32 GB of RAM DDR4. All of that power is supported by the 5th generation Acer AeroBlade ™ 3D, a custom engineered fan with eighty-nine 0.8 mm (0.003 in.) Metal blades that generate 55% more airflow than a plastic fan.
The 17-inch model also includes Acer's Vortex Flow Design concept, a strategically organized cooling layout designed to generate aerodynamic flows to improve cooling on the CPU and GPU and, additionally, reduce the chassis temperature.
This power manifests itself in one of two display options: an incredibly fast 360 Hz FHD panel or a truly beautiful 165 Hz QHD panel. Both have a 3 ms overdrive response, therefore, guarantees a perfect experience and with the minimum of ghosting when placing each panel at high speed.
The distinctive design extends to the keyboard, which was equipped with 4 RGB zones and transparent covers in a concave shape on the WASD keys. Unlike a standard keyboard, this notebook also features a turbo key for instant overclocking and the PredatorSense ™ button, which opens the Predator utility and custom application to monitor or overclock the system, customizing all of your RGB, and more.
The notebook includes an Intel® Killer ™ E2600 Ethernet controller, Intel® Killer ™ Wi-Fi 6 AX1650i and Control Center 2.0 for low latencies and a more reliable connection, in addition to DTS®: X Ultra. In addition, it has a full range of USB 3.2 ports, including the incredibly fast Thunderbolt ™ 4 USB-C with support for DisplayPort functionality and power supply. An HDMI 2.1 port is also included, allowing players to easily connect to an external monitor. As a finishing touch, a 2 TB HDD offers plenty of space for all games in a user's library.
Acer Nitro 5
This generation of Nitro 5 has plenty of power, even featuring an 11-core Intel Core H processorThe generation, an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 series laptop GPU and 32 GB of DDR4 RAM. These powerful specs take the 15.6″ (AN515-57) or 17.3″ (AN517-54) QHD IPS screen up to a refresh rate of 165Hz with a response time of 3ms, while the ratio of 80% between the screen and body size of the device allows players to see more action and fewer edges. Besides speed, the Nitro 5 doesn't skimp on storage either: a pair of slots for M.2 PCIe / SATA SSDs even offer an incredible 1 TB of Raid 0 or 2 TB of HDD, so users can have all their games, movies and game streams close at hand.
Several custom Acer technologies work to keep your hardware running at the lowest possible temperature - Acer Coolboost technology™, dual fans, a strategically positioned air inlet and an exhaust made through four openings - allowing an increase of 10% in fan speed and an increase of 9% in CPU / GPU cooling compared to automatic mode. For situations that don't require as much power, a dedicated NitroSense key allows users to monitor system performance, select a custom cooling mode or create their own custom mode, as well as access various system settings, such as LCD overdrive or the six different Acer TrueHarmony sound modes™.
In addition, the Acer Nitro 5 comes with fun features and very practical details. Four RGB zones allow users to personalize the keyboard, which has 1.6 mm stroke keys and a precision all-black touchpad. The notebook also comes with several connectivity options, including an RJ45 port, an HDMI 2.1 port, a USB 3.2 Gen 2 port and two Gen 1 ports, plus a USB Type-C port™ (Thunderbolt™ 4). And a final touch: the loading door has been moved to the back of the device, allowing for a cleaner and more organized look.
