Acer Predator Triton 500 Packs an i7-8750H and RTX 2080 Into a Thin Form Factor
The Core i7-8750H is a high-performance, overclockable, six-core, 12-thread CPU clocked at 2.2GHz with a 4.1GHz boost clock. As for the GPU, Acer opted for the highest performing GPU available in a laptop, the RTX 2080 Max-Q. The RTX 2080 Max-Q is based upon the same Turing TU-104 design utilized within desktop-grade RTX 2080s, bringing raytracing and sky-high FPS to gamers on the go, and similarly to the 8750H, is overclockable.
Acer provides PredatorSense for lighting controls, overclocking, hotkey configuration, fan control, system monitoring, and other options. The Triton 500 continues the high refresh rate, really low response time trend by pairing the RTX 2080 with an FHD, 3ms, G-Sync display.
Inside the Triton 500, Acer utilized its 4th Generation Aeroblade Technology. Acer claims a serrated fan design combined with ultra-thin blades reduces turbulence for best-in-class cooling for ultraportable systems.
The design of the Triton 500 is aesthetically pleasing with an aluminum chassis, a three-zone RGB backlit keyboard, customized keycaps, and a sleek, minimalistic chassis.
The Triton 500 has plenty of ports. These include one HDMI 2.0, one DisplayPort, one Thunderbolt/USB C, and three USB 3.1 Gen 1 ports. Separate headphone and microphone jacks can also be found.
Other features include dual NVMe SSDs in RAID 0, both 512GB, adding up to a total of 1TB, 32GB of DDR4-2666 SDRAM, Killer 2.5G Ethernet, 802.11AC WiFi capability, and Bluetooth 5.0. A 720p webcam and stereo speakers are also included.
Acer has opted for a larger 4-Cell Lithium 84Wh battery to keep this powerhouse running on the go. The total weight of the Predator Triton 500 is 4.63 lbs, making it quite light for such a powerful system, and much lighter than previous generation desktop replacement laptops.
The PT515-51-765U is currently selling for $2999.99.
