Acer announces the Predator Helios 300 SpatialLabs Edition gaming notebook, bringing glasses-free stereoscopic 3D to the gaming world. Through the SpatialLabs TrueGame app, it will support over 50 popular games at launch, and support for additional titles will be added on an ongoing basis going forward.
Alongside the 3D gaming notebook, Acer also announced the ultra-thin Predator Triton 300 SE gaming notebook and the Predator XB273K LV and Acer Nitro XV272U RV gaming monitors.
“We are excited to add a new dimension to gaming with the Predator Helios 300 SpatialLabs Edition, enabling industry-leading glasses-free stereoscopic 3D gaming.” claims Jerry Kao, Deputy Chief Operating Officer of Acer Inc. “By integrating our SpatialLabs technology with our Predator gaming notebooks, we hope to create a new category of immersive gaming experiences.”
Predator Helios 300 SpatialLabs Edition — 3D gaming notebook
O Predator Helios 300 SpatialLabs Edition (PH315-55s) is a powerful gaming notebook that enables glasses-free stereoscopic 3D gaming experiences. With the SpatialLabs TrueGame app, users can easily play compatible games in 3D mode on the device, where scene details come to life. Rooms feel more spacious, objects are genuinely layered, and adventures become more exciting – all stably, in real-time and without the need for special glasses.
SpatialLabs TrueGame is a new application that brings stereoscopic 3D to the gaming world, allowing gamers to enjoy their favorite titles in a more satisfying way. This is possible because games are created primarily with a focus on three dimensions: developers include depth information in every scene and object they develop. SpatialLabs leverages this existing information to present games in stereoscopic 3D. A dedicated pre-configured profile will be available for each game title among the 50+ modern and classic titles at launch to provide players with a consistent experience with their favorite games, and profiles for additional titles will be continually added going forward. .
The SpatialLabs experience is created through the combination of an eye-tracking solution, a stereoscopic 3D display, and real-time rendering technologies. The Predator Helios 300 SpatialLabs Edition gaming notebook display consists of a 15.6-inch UHD 2D panel with an optically bonded liquid crystal lenticular lens on top, forming an innovative module that can be switched between 2D and stereoscopic 3D views.
To power these exciting real-time 3D experiences, the Predator Helios 300 SpatialLabs Edition features processors up to Intel® Core™ 12th Gen i9, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 laptop graphics, 32GB of DDR5-4800 memory, and PCIe Gen 4 NVMe RAID 0 SSDs for storage. A dual fan layout that includes a 5th generation AeroBlade 3D fan helps keep the system running cool, further supported by Acer's liquid metal thermal grease and CoolBoost™ technology.
Running Windows 11, the notebook comes with Killer DoubleShot Pro and Wi-Fi 6E (E2600+1675i) connectivity, plus a satisfying range of ports, including an HDMI 2.1 port for connecting to external displays, a Thunderbolt™ 4 port, and two USB 3.2 Gen2 ports.
