The new Acer Predator laptops are a new example that the idea that laptops are not used for gaming has long since ceased to make sense. Today, we can find systems like these new Predators that jump to the latest generation of Intel processors and NVIDIA graphics adaptersto thus provide a performance at the level expected by the most demanding players, with the advantage that you can carry them under your arm to use them anywhere and at any time.
There are four, specifically, the models presented today by Acer: the absolute top of the range Predator Triton 17Xthe powerful but most affordable Predator Helios Neo 16the small but powerful Predator Triton 14 and the Predator Helios 3D SpatialLabs Edition, with which Acer renews its commitment to this amazing and interesting technology that allows you to enjoy 3D content without the need to use glasses for this purpose. So, let’s see what each of them offers us.
Acer Predator Triton 17X
We start with an absolute top of the range, which the company itself qualifies as Acer’s most powerful gaming laptop to date, an equipment that under a chassis with a successful elegant and minimalist design (something that allows it to be used in all kinds of contexts), hides state-of-the-art components. This combination makes it a more than interesting option for gamers, but also for other user profiles who need a high-performance system and great autonomy that facilitates their mobility.
Let’s get down to business, the new Acer Predator Triton 17 X can be equipped with processors up to Intel Core i9-13900HX, the most powerful 13th generation Intel Core chip for laptops, with 24 cores and 32 threads, 36 megabytes of L3 cache and a maximum frequency of 5.4 gigahertz. And the level does not drop when talking about its graphic section, because inside we can find up to a GeForce RTX 4090 Mobile, the top of the range of the latest generation from NVIDIA, which has been tested to be able to outperform the top-of-the-range desktop GPU of the previous generation. This set is complemented by up to 64 gigabytes of DDR5-5600 RAM And till four terabytes of PCIe SSD storage. As you can imagine, such a selection has an advanced thermal management system, so that it is possible to get the most out of all the components.
Regarding your screen, we are faced with a brand new 17-inch MiniLED panel with a resolution of 2,560 x 1,600 points in a 16:10 aspect ratio, capable of reaching a refresh rate of 250 hertz, a brightness that exceeds 1,000 nits and a contrast ratio of 1,000,000:1. Thus, we are talking about a screen with certification VESA DisplayHDR 1000 and that achieves 100% representation of the color space DCI-P3. As you probably already thought, a screen with these characteristics, added to the advanced features of this Acer Predator Triton 17 X, make it a really interesting option for content creators, as well as image professionals.
It is possible that, at this point, you are wondering about its autonomy, since a system of these characteristics aims to be quite demanding in terms of electricity consumption. However, according to manufacturer data, it will be possible to enjoy up to 24 hours of autonomy for certain uses.
The new Acer Predator Triton 17 X will be available in Spain from June, from €4,999. You can find more information on their website.
Acer Predator Helios Neo 16
We continue in the segment of high performancebut now with a more adjusted economic proposal, and therefore are within the reach of a greater number of users who, however, have the necessary elements to satisfy the needs of many users for whom benefits are a key element. In addition, in the design of this equipment we find some surprising and fun details, such as encrypted codes laser engraved on its anodized cover. Thus, the first game will be to try to find out the message that is hidden in them.
For this model Acer will offer configurations with up to Intel Core i7-13700HXin communion with graphs hUp to GeForce RTX 4070 Mobile, a combination of the latest generation components for the high range, with which the performance will be more than adequate both to enjoy even the most recent triple A releases, and to carry out other equally demanding tasks. The set is completed with up to 32 gigabytes of DDR5-4800 RAM And till two terabytes of PCIe Gen 4 SSD storage.
An interesting aspect of the Acer Predator Helios Neo 16 is that they will hit the market with various options regarding your screen 16 inches. Thus, we can opt for an IPS screen with WQXGA resolution (2,560 x 1,600 points in a 16:10 aspect ratio) with a refresh rate of 165 hertz and a response time of 3 milliseconds, and a screen with WUXGA resolution (1,920 x 1,200 dots with a 16:10 aspect ratio), also with a 165 hertz refresh rate and capable of representing 100% of the sRGB color space, making it a very interesting option for content creators and video professionals. the picture.
The new Acer Predator Helios Neo 16 will be available in Spain from Mayfrom €2,199. You can find more information on their website.
Acer Predator Triton 14
The smallest, in size, of the new Predators, has nothing to envy to the larger models, since also bets on high-end components of the most recent generations, to provide a very portable device, with an attractive silver design and some touches of color that recall its gamer spirit, something that is reinforced by reviewing its technical specifications and, therefore, inferring its performance.
To motorize these Triton 14 Acer offers processors up to Intel Core i7-13700H in combination with graphics adapters up to NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Mobilewhich are complemented by up to 32 gigabytes of DDR5-6000 RAM and PCIe SSD storage. Of course, for these components to be able to offer their maximum performance, we will find an advanced thermal management system, in combination with a more than remarkable engineering work in terms of the arrangement of all the components inside the equipment.
For its 14-inch screen, Acer again offers various dashboard options. A MiniLED panel with WQXGA resolution (2,560 x 1,600 dots in a 16:10 aspect ratio), a refresh rate that can scale up to 250 hertz, DisplayHDR 600 certification and 100% DCI-P3 space, and two other IPS panels with a refresh rate of 165 hertz, one with WQXGA resolution and 100% of the DCI-P3 color space, and another with WUXGA resolution and representation of 100% of the sRGB color space.
The new Acer Predator Triton 14 will be available in Spain from Mayfrom €2,399. You can find more information on their website.
Acer Predator Helios 3D 15 SpatialLabs Edition
We finish the review of the new Acer Predators with a team that does not leave us indifferent, as happened to us at the time with the Acer Predator Helios 300 SpatialLabs Edition. As in that one, the differential factor is marked by the SpatialLabs TrueGame technology, thanks to which the screen is capable of displaying a three-dimensional image using stereoscopic technology, which makes it unnecessary to use special glasses to enjoy this type of image. Now, without a doubt, that is not the only remarkable point of this laptop, as you will see when reviewing its technical specifications.
At the center of the Predator Helios 3D we find processors up to Intel Core i9-13900HX and graphics up to NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 MobileSo we are talking about a top of the range again based on these two key components. And so that the set is up to the task, we can equip it with up to 32 gigabytes of DDR5-5600 memory and up to two terabytes of PCIe Gen 4 SSD storage. Once again, and how could it be otherwise, we are also faced with advanced thermal management that will allow us to get 100% out of all these components.
Regarding its 15.6-inch screen and the technologies associated with it, the Acer Predator Helios 3D 15 combines the solution of seye tracking by SpatialLabs, stereoscopic 3D display, and real-time scene rendering technologies, providing a high-quality 3D content experience without rendering it affecting system performance and therefore gaming or applications that we are using at all times. Additionally, the notebook provides different 3D game modes, with 3D+ and 3D Ultra settings supported for more than 70 titles, with more being added on an ongoing basis.
The new Acer Predator Helios 3D SpatialLabs will be available in Spain from Junefrom €3,999. You can find more information on their website.
