These new refreshed models bring exciting updates across the board, giving gamers of all levels and kinds something to seem forward to.
The notebook lines now include the newest 10th Gen Intel Core H-series processors for desktop-calibre performance which will be taken anywhere. NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER or RTX 2070 SUPER GPUs deliver the performance needed to drive fast displays with high refresh rates for blur-free seamless visuals in even the foremost demanding of AAA games. To stay the notebooks operating at peak performance and optimal temperatures, Acer has equipped the notebooks with enhanced thermal designs, new cooling technologies and extra heat pipes.
Predator Helios 700:
The Predator Helios 700, featuring the long-lasting sliding HyperDrift keyboard, has been upgraded to incorporate either an overclockable 10th Gen Intel Core i9-10980HK or i7-10875H processor and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER or RTX 2070 SUPER GPUs.
The device’s thermal management capabilities are significantly enhanced with a replacement thermal solution called Predator PowerGem, included on models with the Intel Core i9 processor. PowerGem may be a special material with 3.83 times more vertical heat conductivity than copper, improving the notebook’s heat emission efficiency. All models include three copper heat pipes, Acer CoolBoost Technology, a vapour chamber and two Acer custom-engineered 4th Gen AeroBlade™ 3D fans.
Additional high-performance updates include faster 2933 Hz memory (max 64 GB), a further Thunderbolt 3 port (for a complete of two) and therefore the latest Killer DoubleShot Pro (Wi-Fi 6 AX1650i wireless and E3100G Ethernet) to make sure that speed-critical applications get bandwidth priority. Fast PCIe NVMe Solid State Drives in RAID 0 keep everything lightning fast, and games will roar to life on the Helios 700’s beautiful 17.3-inch 144 Hz FHD IPS display with NVIDIA G-SYNC technology.
The keyboard, which features per-key RGB lighting and anti-ghosting, has been updated to incorporate MagTek mechanical switches for the WASD keys and a group of latest racing keys which supply increased precision. Designed for racing games, they feature 1.5 mm of keycap curvature that permits gamers to form finer and more controlled movements in-game. Gamers can swap the quality WASD keys on the keyboard out with the included MagForce keys and racing keys, choosing the set best fitted to the sport they’re playing. Once swapped, gamers can use the Predator Sense app or press the P3 hotkey so as to regulate the keys’ lighting and actuation point.
Acer Predator Helios 300:
Acer’s popular Predator Helios 300 has raised the bar for gaming notebooks, offering the simplest performance for the dollar. Now available with the newest 10th Gen Intel Core H-series processors, overclockable NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 GPU with Max-Q Design and a 240 Hz 15.6-inch FHD IPS display with 3 ms overdrive, the foremost recent Helios 300 has cemented its reputation together of the most powerful and feature-packed yet affordably-priced gaming notebooks available. It also supports up to 32 GB of 2933 MHz DDR4 memory, two PCIe NVMe SSDs in RAID 0 configuration and up to a 2 TB disk drive, delivering the speed and storage necessary to take care of large libraries of AAA games and films.
Enhancing the general performance and gaming experience, DTS:X Ultra Audio delivers high-end 360-degree surround sound for experiencing media during a realistic spatial soundscape. With headphones, it provides an authentic audio experience letting sounds be heard as they were meant to be, whether near or far, and features specially tuned sound modes that are optimized for various game genres (strategy, RPG or FPS).
Acer’s custom-engineered cooling technology ensures that the device runs at an optimal temperature. The notebook features dual fans, including one newly-designed 4th Generation AeroBlade 3D fan that reduces noise while increasing airflow, and Acer CoolBoost, which allows manual adjustment of the fans to make sure that critical areas receive continuous cooling. Strategically placed intake and exhaust vents also are included.
Acer Predator Triton 300:
Acer’s powerful but slim Predator Triton 300 gaming notebook has been refreshed to incorporate a tenth Gen Intel Core H-series processor, up to NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 GPU with Max-Q Design and a 240 Hz display refresh rate. The 15.6-inch FHD IPS display also features a 3 ms reaction time, 300 nits brightness and supports 100% of the sRGB colour space, making it ideal for both gaming and content creation. It further supports up to 3 M.2 SSDs (one PCIe, two combos), providing an abundance of storage plus the lightning-fast transfer rates and speed that gamers crave.
Three heat pipes are added to the device’s advanced thermal design, which also includes a dual-fan cooling system (featuring one 4th Gen AeroBlade 3D metal fan), CoolBoost technology and strategically placed intake and exhaust vents. All this performance is housed during a thin and light-weight metal chassis that measures just 19.9 mm (0.78 inches) thin and a couple of .1 kg (4.63 lbs), making it easy to game on the go.
Acer Nitro 7:
Acer’s updated Nitro 7 is an alternative choice for gamers seeking portability. Its sleek metal chassis measures just 19.9 mm (0.78 inches) thin and a couple of .5 kg (5.51 lbs), but still manages to pack during a 10th Gen Intel Core H-series processor and up to a GeForce RTX 2060 GPU. With up to 3 slots for high-speed M.2 SSDs, up to 1 TB in RAID 0 configuration, up to 32 GB of DDR4 2933 memory, Killer Ethernet E2600 and Intel® Wi-Fi 6, game load and response times are incredibly quick.
The Nitro 7’s thermal design includes dual fans, a quad exhaust port design and Acer CoolBoost technology, which may be enabled in NitroSense to extend fan speed by 10% and CPU/GPU cooling by 9% compared to auto-mode. On top of the performance this makes possible, a 15.6-inch non-glare FHD IPS display with a 144 Hz refresh rate and three ms response allows for sharp visuals and smooth, blur-free gameplay.
