Acer’s Predator Triton 300: Thin Laptop w/ Core i7, GeForce GTX 1650, PowerGemby Anton Shilov on September 4, 2019 5:11 AM EST
Numerous mobile gamers nowadays demand not only performance, but also portability. In an attempt to bring together gaming-grade performance and compactness of mainstream laptops, Acer developed its all-new Predator Triton 300 which packs performance of a gaming PC into a chassis that is thinner than 2 cm.
The Acer Predator Triton 300 is powered by Intel’s 9th Generation Core processor as well as NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 1650 GPU. To ensure that both chips run at their maximum clocks possible, the manufacturer cools them down using its new cooling system that relies on its 4th Generation AeroBlade 3D fans and uses its PowerGem CPU thermal interface. Acer says that PowerGem absorbs heat up to four times faster than copper, which allows to tangibly increase power envelope and boost CPU performance by up to 12.5% in a desktop (based on the numbers demonstrated by the company), but it is unclear how significantly PowerGem can affect performance of a laptop.
In beefy configurations, Acer’s Predator Triton 300 will come with 16 GB of DDR4-2666 memory (upgradeable to 32 GB) as well as up to two 1 TB M.2 NVMe that operate in RAID 0 mode for maximum capacity and performance. Besides, the system has a Killer Wi-Fi 6 AX 1650 Wi-Fi solution, a Killer GbE controller as well as USB Type-A, USB Type-C, and HDMI connectors.
As we are talking about a system for hardcore gamers and esports professionals, the Predator Triton 300 is equipped with a 15.6-inch IPS LCD featuring a 144 Hz refresh rate as well as a 3 ms response time. To make gaming more immersive, the Predator Triton comes with an audio subsystem enhanced with Waves Nx surround sound software.
The Predator Triton 300 from Acer will be available in EMEA sometimes in Q4 at prices starting from €1,299.
