Acer announced significant new updates to their Predator Helios 700, Predator Helios 300 and Predator Triton 300. The refreshed models will be providing gamers of all levels and types something new to look forward to, packing the latest 10th Gen Intel Core H-series processors for desktop-caliber performance on the go, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER or RTX 2070 SUPER GPUs for seamless visuals on fast, high refresh rate displays, and enhanced thermal designs, new cooling technologies and additional heatpipes.
PREDATOR HELIOS 700 – GIVE YOUR DESKTOP A RUN FOR ITS MONEY
The Predator Helios 700, featuring the iconic sliding HyperDrift keyboard, has been upgraded to include either an overclockable 10th Gen Intel Core i9-10980HK or i7-10875H processor and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER or RTX 2070 SUPER GPUs.
A new thermal solution known as Predator PowerGem is 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 vapor chamber and two Acer custom-engineered 4 Gen AeroBlade 3D fans.
Besides that, high-performance updates include 2933 Hz memory (max 64 GB), an additional Thunderbolt 3 port (for a total of two) and the latest Killer DoubleShot Pro (Wi-Fi 6 AX1650i wireless and E3100G Ethernet) to ensure 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 per-key RGB lighting and anti-ghosting keyboard has also been updated to include MagTek mechanical switches for the WASD keys and a set of new racing keys which offer increased precision. The latter is designed for racing games, featuring a 1.5 mm of keycap curvature that enables gamers to make finer and more controlled movements in game. The standard WASD keys can be swapped out then adjusted with the Predator Sense app as needed.
PREDATOR HELIOS 300 – POWERFUL AND FEATURE-PACKED
Continuing its tradition of best performance for your buck, the Predator Helios 300 now has the latest 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. 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 hard drive, delivering the speed and storage necessary to maintain large libraries of AAA games and movies.
The DTS:X Ultra Audio enhances the overall performance and gaming experience, delivering high-end 360-degree surround sound for experiencing media in 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 have been optimized for different game genres (strategy, RPG or FPS).
And it’ll be keeping cool with Acer’s custom-engineered cooling technology, featuring 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 ensure that critical areas receive continuous cooling. Strategically placed intake and exhaust vents are also included.
PREDATOR TRITON 300 – FOR GAMERS AND CONTENT CREATORS
The slim and powerful Predator Triton 300’s refresh sees the inclusion of a 10th Gen Intel Core H-series processor, up to NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 GPU with Max-Q Design and a 240 Hz display refresh rate on a 15.6-inch FHD IPS display that also features a 3 ms response time, 300 nits brightness and supports 100% of the sRGB color space, ideal for both gaming and content creation. It further supports up to three M.2 SSDs (one PCIe, two combos), providing an abundance of storage plus the lightning-fast transfer rates and speed that gamers crave.
The device sees the addition of three heat pipes to the advanced thermal design, including a dual-fan cooling system (featuring one 4th Gen AeroBlade 3D metal fan), CoolBoosttechnology and strategically placed intake and exhaust vents. All this performance is housed in a thin and lightweight metal chassis that measures just 19.9 mm (0.78 inches) thin and 2.1 kg (4.63 lbs), making it easy to game on the go.
