With twists of GPU upgrades and Intel processor refreshes keeping things interesting, gaming laptop competition has by no means been fiercer. In a bid to select up players not entirely amenable to spend thousands of dollars on their rig, the Predator Triton 300 retains the thin-and-light credentials of the series (this one is just 2.3kg), and ties collectively a 9th-gen Intel Core i7 with NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 1650 GPU. There’s 16GB of DDR4 memory which is upgradeable, and a 15.6-inch HD IPS show with a 144Hz refresh charge. Of course, there are more efficient and powerful machines out there, but the spec sheet sounds suitably gamer-friendly — don’t expect ray-tracing. It’ll help up to two 1TB SSDs in RAID 0, and there’s WiFi 6 alongside a mandatory ethernet port if you’re playing online.
The Triton 300 keeps the Predator design licks, with zone RGB lighting, and Turbo and Predator Sense keys alongside concaved WASD and arrow keys to assist your reactions and enter.
To keep it company, Acer additionally introduced the Predator Triton 500 with a new 300Hz show — although it wasn’t on present at IFA here in Berlin. The laptop retains the same 15.6-inch display, though it’s somewhat thinner than the last model. The news is that silky sounding 300Hz screen — and not a lot else.
The Predator Triton 300 will likely be obtainable in Europe this October, with prices starting from 1300 Euros (roughly $1,400), while the updated Triton 500 can be available in EMEA in November starting at 2,699 Euros and in the US this December, starting at $2,800.
