New goodies for the company’s Predator notebook line
Acer didn’t just release a ridiculously expensive gaming chair during this year’s IFA – the Taiwanese company also announced a brand-new, thin-and-light gaming notebook, the Triton 300. The new gaming notebook tips the scales at just 5 pounds (or 2.2 kilos for the rest of the world) which isn’t too bad considering this is a machine that’s powerful enough to play most modern games today.
Making that happen is a 9th Gen Intel Core i7 processor, an NVIDIA GTX 1650 GPU along with up to 32GB of RAM and up to two 1TB, SSDs configured in a raid array. The Triton 300 sports a 15.6-inch full HD panel with a 144Hz refresh rate and a 3ms response time, which makes it the perfect notebook for eSports enthusiasts and hardcore PC gamers alike.
Speaking of hardcore, Acer is giving its Predator Triton 500 gaming notebook a 300Hz display to better take advantage of its top-tier innards. It’s not surprising that Acer opted to give their top-tier gaming notebook a spec bump – the Triton 500’s 9th Gen Intel Core i7 processor and NVIDIA RTX 2080 Max-Q GPU can crank up frame rates to take advantage of that 300Hz display, though you’ll be paying a premium for the privilege.
There’s no local pricing for the Triton 300 and refreshed Triton 500, though European and American pricing for these come in at EUR 1299 (Php 74.3K) and $2799 (Php 145.1K) respectively.
