Acer Malaysia has just released three new gaming laptops with the Predator Triton 500 SE (Special Edition), Predator Helios 500 and 300. All three gaming laptops come with up to 11th Gen Intel Core i9 processor.
Predator Triton 500 SE
The Predator Triton 500 SE offers best-in-class components in an unobtrusive, quietly built chassis, with up to 11th Gen Intel Core i9 processors and up to NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080. It provides ample room for games, videos, and complex spreadsheets, with up to 32GB DDR4 RAM and 1TB of high-speed PCIe Gen4 SSD.
With an 87% screen-to-body ratio 16-inch 16:10 WQXGA display, the Predator Triton 500 SE allows users to enjoy games, films, and a larger workspace.
To keep all components cool, the Predator Triton 500 SE uses Acer’s Vortex Flow cooling design, which includes a triple-fan cooling system, a 5th generation custom-engineered AeroBlade 3D fan, five dedicated heat pipes for the CPU and GPU, and strategically placed intake and exhaust vents that constantly draw in cold air and expel hot air.
With a battery life of up to 12 hours, the Predator Triton 500 SE packs all the power into a 19.9mm thin all-metal chassis weighing only 2.4kg.
Furthermore, the Intel Killer E3100 Ethernet Controller, the Intel Killer Wi-Fi 6 AX1650i, and the Killer Intelligence Center provide gamers with the low latency, dependable connection required to outperform the online competition.
Dual full-range USB Type-C 3.2 Gen 2 ports with Thunderbolt 4 and DisplayPort support, as well as an SD 7.0 card reader, provide users with fast transfer speeds and plenty of storage for all their devices.
Users can simply monitor their Predator Triton 500 SE, overclock the GPU, and alter fan speeds to silent, extreme, or turbo modes with PredatorSense.
The Predator Triton 500 SE is available with either an 11th Gen Intel Core i9 CPU with NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 or an 11th Gen Intel Core i7 processor with NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 for RM12,999 or RM8,999.
Predator Helios 500
The Predator Helios 500 gaming laptop, powered by NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 and up to 11th Gen Intel Core i9-11980HK processor, provides players with more than enough horsepower to handle all of the latest triple-A gaming games.
The Predator Helios 500 offers serious gamers enough space for the next generation of games, with up to 64GB DDR4 RAM and up to twin 1TB PCIe NVMe Gen 4 SSD storage in RAID0 configuration.
Predator PowerGem, a custom-engineered technology consisting of a metal-alloy polymer, is installed on top of the CPU to keep the system working properly. Furthermore, Acer’s Vortex Flow technology employs two fans, including a 5th generation AeroBlade 3D fan, to guide airflow to vital components and improve performance.
The WASD keys on the Predator Helios 500 can be replaced with Acer’s Racing keys or MagForce keys, which use MagTek mechanical switches to make keystrokes act like a joystick on a controller. Gamers may also modify light bars under Predator Pulsar lighting and configure the per-key RGB illuminated keyboard with PredatorSense.
The Predator Helios 500 has a variety of connectors, including HDMI 2.1, mini-DP 1.4, USB Type-C Thunderbolt 4, USB 3.2 Gen2 ports with offline charging, and an RJ45 port.
It also includes the Intel Killer E3100G Ethernet Controller, the Intel Killer Wi-Fi 6 AX1650i, and the Killer Intelligence Center. While DTS:X Ultra audio and 3D simulated surround sound enhance the gaming experience.
