At IFA 2019 in Berlin, Acer uncovered two gaming laptops, a gaming chair, an esports platform, four monitors, two refreshed laptops, an all-in-one desktop, and four Chromebooks. The company didn’t need to await CES 2020 before unloading its latest wares.
The first and most visible trend at IFA this year is 300Hz displays. Anticipate plenty of these to begin showing up Acer is just one of many players.
Acer updated its Predator Triton gaming laptop series with two new SKUs. The Predator Triton 300 series is Acer’s affordable solution for gamers who use high graphics, coming to EMEA in October for $1,425. In the meantime, the Predator Triton 500 series is Acer’s first laptop came with a 300Hz refresh rate, for $2,800 in North America.
The Predator Triton 300 laptop weighs 2.3kg (5.07 pounds). It may only be upgraded to a 9th Gen Intel Core i7 processor (no 10th Gen but), an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 GPU, and 16GB/32GB of DDR4 2666Hz memory. The laptop will even support as much as two 1TB PCIe NVMe SSDs in RAID 0, around 2TB hard drive, and Wi-Fi 6. The screen provides a 15.6-inch Full HD IPS display, a 144Hz refresh rate, and a 3ms response time.
The Predator Triton 500 isn’t new; however, it has been upgraded with a 300Hz 15.6-inch Full HD display. At the same time, Acer slimmed it down to 17.9mm (0.70 inches) and a weight of 2.1kg (4.6 pounds). Narrow bezels promise an 81% body-to-screen ratio. Just like the Triton 300, it only goes up to a 9th Gen Intel Core i7 processor.
