TAIPEI, TAIWAN (May 27, 2021) Acer today announced several additions to its gaming portfolio with Predator notebooks, a mouse and a new 5G CPE router. The all-new Predator Triton 500 SE and the Predator Helios 500 notebooks have been updated to include up to the new 11th Gen Intel® Core™ i9 processors and NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 30 Series Laptop GPUs, plus a hoard of premium features like Acer’s 5th Generation AeroBlade™ 3D Fan Technology for better cooling, DTS:X™ Ultra audio, Intel® Killer™ E3100 Ethernet Controller, Intel® Killer™ Wi-Fi 6 AX1650, and the PredatorSense device management software.
Predator Triton 500 SE Gaming Notebook
The Predator Triton 500 SE (PT516-51s) is a “special edition” notebook designed for gamers who want a machine capable of getting through both the latest AAA games and the work day. Powered by up to an 11th Gen Intel® Core™ i9 Processor, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Laptop GPU and up to 64 GB of 3200 MHz DDR4 memory, the notebook offers more than enough gaming power—but at just 19.9 mm (0.78 in) thin with up to 12 hours of battery life and NVIDIA Advanced Optimus technology, gamers can easily slip it into a backpack or squeeze in a bit of work between matches. The notebook’s sleek, clean appearance means that it could even double as a work laptop for professionals that enjoy gaming, and with up to 4 TB of high speed PCIe Gen4 storage, it has plenty of space for games, footage and the odd spreadsheet or two.
“With Acer’s innovation powered by the 11th Gen Intel® Core™ H-series processors, they push the limits on laptop performance for amazing gaming experiences. Supporting frequencies up to 5 GHz, new PCIe Gen 4 for the fastest graphics and storage access, and incredibly fast connectivity based on the latest Wi-Fi 6 and Thunderbolt 4 technologies, Acer has created a stunning platform for gamers,” said Kim Algstam, GM & Director, Enthusiast Laptop Innovation Team, Intel.
Whether playing games or watching films, players will appreciate the Predator Triton 500 SE’s 16-inch 16:10 display with an 87% screen-to-body ratio and three panel options, including a 165 Hz WQXGA LCD display; a 165 Hz WQXGA Mini LED panel with 1,250 peak nits and 100% coverage of the sRGB color gamut; or a 240 Hz WQXGA IPS PolarBlack panel with a 3 ms response time and 100% coverage of the DCI-P3 color gamut for an even smoother gameplay experience. Just under the notebook’s all-metal chassis, a suite of thermal management technology ensures that everything runs cool. The Triton 500 SE employs Acer’s Vortex Flow cooling design, featuring a triple fan cooling system, including a 5th Generation custom-engineered AeroBlade™ 3D Fan, five dedicated heat pipes for the CPU and GPU, plus strategically placed intake and exhaust vents that continually draw in cold air and expel hot air.
An Intel® Killer™ E3100 Ethernet Controller, Intel® Killer™ Wi-Fi 6 AX1650, and Killer™ Intelligence Center provide gamers with the low latency and reliable connection necessary to clear out the online competition, while PredatorSense™ allows gamers to monitor their system, overclock the computer’s GPU and adjust fan speed with different modes such as quiet, extreme or turbo. As a final touch, the notebook’s full range of USB 3.2 Gen 2 ports, including dual Thunderbolt™ 4 Type-C ports which support DisplayPort and a SD 7.0 card reader, provides players with plenty of room for all their peripherals.
