Acer has announced the arrival of its all-new Predator Triton 500 SE and the Predator Helios 300 Notebooks in the UAE. Both Notebooks offer advanced specifications for gamers, from professionals to beginner levels, in two impressive machines powered by the 11th Intel Core i7 Processor. The all-powerful gaming machines are supported by Acer’s 5th Gen AeroBlade 3D Fan, a custom-engineered fan with eighty-nine 0.8 mm (0.003-inch) metal blades that generate 55% more airflow than a plastic fan.
The devices use Acer’s Vortex Flow Design concept, a strategically organized cooling layout designed to generate aerodynamic flows to enhance cooling on the CPU and GPU, and additionally lower the chassis’ skin temperature ensuring that everything runs cool. Both Notebooks are also offered with the latest Windows 11 Home update, for beyond efficient performance.
Predator Triton 500 SE
Designed for gamers who want a powerful gaming device that can also be discrete for the workplace, the Predator Triton 500 SE (PT516-51s) is a “Special Edition” Notebook that is capable of getting through both the latest AAA games and the workday. Just 19.9 mm (0.78 in) thin with up to 12 hours of battery life, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Laptop GPU and Advanced Optimus technology, and up to 32 GB of DDR4 memory, gamers can easily slip it into a backpack or squeeze in a bit of work between matches.
The Notebook’s sleek, clean appearance means that it can double as a work laptop for professionals that seek to balance the joy of gaming and working on tasks, and with up to 2 TB of high-speed PCIe NVMe SSD storage, it has plenty of space for games, as well as finalizing a spreadsheet or two. Whether playing games or watching films, players will appreciate the Predator Triton 500 SE’s 16-inch 16:10 display with an 87% screen-to-body ratio and holding a 165 Hz WQXGA Mini LED panel with 1250 peak nits and 100% coverage of the sRGB color gamut, for a supremely smoother gameplay experience.
An Intel Killer E3100 Ethernet Controller, Intel Killer Wi-Fi 6 AX1650, and Killer Intelligence Center provide gamers with the low latency and reliable connection necessary to clear out the online competition, while PredatorSense allows gamers to monitor their system, overclock the computer’s GPU and adjust fan speed with different modes such as quiet, extreme or turbo. As a final touch, the Notebook’s full range of USB 3.2 Gen 2 ports, including dual Thunderbolt 4 Type-C ports which support DisplayPort and an SD 7.0 card reader, provides players with plenty of room for all their peripherals.
Predator Helios 300
The new Predator Helios 300 (PH315-54) comes with everything gamers need to conquer the competition with, starting with the latest 11th Intel Core i7 processor, an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Laptop GPU, and up to 24 GB of DDR4 RAM, as well an astonishing 1 TB of high-speed PCIe NVMe SSD storage combined with 1 TB HDD. This power reflects beautifully through a 15.6-inch and blisteringly fast 300 Hz FHD IPS panel. Boasting a 3 ms overdrive response, kicking this panel into high gear is a seamless experience with minimal ghosting.
Along with a keyboard that will have gamers fascinated, as it has been equipped with 4 RGB zones and see-through concave-shaped caps on the WASD keys. Deviating from a standard keyboard, this Notebook also comes with a Turbo key for instant overclocking and a PredatorSense key that opens Predator’s custom utility app for monitoring or overclocking the system, customizing all of that RGB, and so much 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, plus DTS:X Ultra. The Notebook also offers a full range of USB 3.2 ports, including the incredibly fast Thunderbolt 4 USB-C with support for DisplayPort functionality and power delivery. An HDMI 2.1 port is also included, allowing gamers to easily connect to an external monitor. As a final touch, a 2TB HDD provides plenty of space for all of the games in a user’s library.
