Acer, at the next @ Acer conference, this year held exclusively online because of the Coronavirus, has announced new updates for its gaming notebooks, the Predator Helios 700, Predator Helios 300, Predator Triton 300 and Nitro 7, based on the 10th generation Intel Core H series processors and the new NVIDIA GPUs.
Predator Helios 700
It starts from Predator Helios 7, which still sports the sliding HyperDrift keyboard. Users can choose between the 10th generation overclockable Intel Core i9-10980HK or i7-10875H processor and the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Super or RTX 2070 Super graphics card.
The manufacturer worked hard to improve thermal management with the new Predator PowerGerm solution which will be available to all models with i9 processor. Characterized by a new material with thermal conductivity 3.83 times greater than copper, this new option improves the expulsion of heat from the notebook. On all models, there are three copper heat pipes, Acer CoolBoost technology, a steam chamber and two 3D Aeroblade fans.
Among the novelties, we find a 2,933 Hz memory (maximum at 64GB), two Thunderbolt ports and the Killer DoubleShot Pro. The SSDs are always PCIe NVMe in RAID 0, while the display is 17.3-inch IPS FHD 144HZ with support to NVIDIA G-SYNC technology.
There will be plenty of keyboard customization options available to gamers: you can swap WASD keys to suit your tastes.
Predator Helios 300
Also presented on new Helios 300, also based on the new 10th generation Intel Core H Series processors, accompanied by the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 GPU overclockable with Design Max-Q and 15.6-inch IPS HFD 240Hz display with 3ms overdrive.
The gaming notebook supports a maximum of 32 gigabytes of 2,933 Mhz DDR4 RAM, two PCIe NVMe SSDs in RAID 0 configuration and a 2 terabyte hard disk. Added to these is DTS: X Ultra Audio for 360-degree surround sound.
In terms of energy efficiency, we find two fans, including a fourth-generation AeroBlade 3D and Acer CoolBost technology that allows you to adjust the rotation speed of the fans.
Predator Triton 300
Update also for the Triton range. Also on this, we find the 10th Generation Intel Core H processor, the GPU up to the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 with Max-Q Design and a display with 240Hz refresh rate.
The screen has a diagonal of 15.6 inches and is IPS FHD, with a response time of 3ms, the brightness of 300 candles per square meter and coverage of 10% of the sRGB spectrum. Support for three M.2 SSDs (one PCIe and two combos) is also guaranteed. Here too we find the dual-fan cooling system and CoolBoost technology.
Also for players wishing to play on the move, the new Acer Nitro 7 (which we show in the images below). Featuring a 19.9mm metal body and 2.5 kilograms in weight, it is based on the tenth generation Intel Core H series processor and GPU up to the GeForce RTX 2060.
Players will find three M.2 high-speed SSD slots up to 1 terabyte in RAID 0 configuration and up to 32 gigabytes of DDR4 2933 memory.
At the thermal level, there are two fans, four grids and of course Acer CoolBost technology, which can be activated via NitroSense to increase the fan rotation speed by 10%.
A 15.6-inch FHD anti-glare IPS display with 144Hz refresh rate and 3ms response time is available.
