Acer has announced their new Predator Triton 500 and Acer Nitro 5 gaming notebooks. Alongside developments in thermal performance, both devices come with the latest 10th gen Intel Core processors and newly announced NVIDIA GeForce RTX SUPER and GTX GPUs.

Predator Triton 500

Powered by the latest 10th Gen Intel Core processors and up to NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER or 2070 SUPER GPUs with Max-Q Design, the Predator Triton 500 is capable of taking on the toughest challenges.It comes with a 300 Hz IPS panel with a 3 ms overdrive response time, covering 100% of the sRGB color gamut while supporting wide-angle views. 

The Predator Triton 500 comes with a Killer Wi-Fi 6 AX1650i wireless controller, E3100G ethernet controller and Control Center 2.0, ensuring speed-critical applications get bandwidth priority. All this is packed into a 17.9 mm (0.7 in) body weighing 2.1 kg (4.63 lb) with an all-metal chassis that features narrow bezels, with claimed battery-life of up to 7.5 hours.

The Predator Triton 500 features Acer’s Vortex Flow technology, a new design involving three custom engineered fans strategically placed in the chassis, working in tandem to increase additional airflow while also reducing noise. This is further enhanced by CoolBoost technology, which increases fan speed for improved performance. Gamers can monitor the device’s temperature and adjust the fan speed through the PredatorSense UI. 

The notebook’s innovative cooling system also features an all-metal 4th Gen AeroBlade 3D fan that’s been specially designed to maximize airflow and reduce noise. Serrated edges, winglets and a curved fin allow for up to 45% increase in airflow. Adding five heat pipes to the mix, the 2020 Predator Triton 500 ultimately gets 33% better thermal performance than its 2019 counterpart.

Price and Availability

The Predator Triton 500 gaming notebook will be available in EMEA in May starting at EUR 1,899 (Dh7523.65).

Acer Nitro 5

The Acer Nitro 5 comes with up to a 10th Gen Intel Core i7 processor delivering 5 GHz and graphics options of a GeForce RTX 2060 or the GeForce GTX 1650Ti or 1650 GPU. It comes with up to two M.2 PCle SSDs and a 1 TB HDD for storage, and up to 32 GB of DD4R4 RAM in two user-upgradeable DIMM slots.  Available with a 15.6-inch FHD IPS display, models with 144 Hz or 120Hz  refresh rates and a 3 ms response times allows for blur-free gameplay that comes to life on the device’s 72% NTSC, 300-nit panel.

It also comes with several innovative thermal solutions in order to maximize cooling efficiency even under heavy loads and features a dual-fan cooling system that takes advantage of strategically placed intake/exhaust ports and four heat vents to achieve an overall 25% improvement in thermal performance over the 2019 model. 

This is further optimized by CoolBoost technology capable of increasing fan speed by 10% and CPU/GPU cooling by 9%. New to this year’s model, Intel Wi-Fi 6 AX201 (802.11ax) and Killer Ethernet E2600 increase network stability and performance, enabling gamers to take full advantage of these thermal improvements.
