Introduced earlier this year, Acer’s Predator Triton 500 turned out to be a formidable 15.6-inch gaming PC that brought together rather extreme performance and relatively compact dimensions. Starting this Fall, the machine will also get a display featuring a 300 Hz refresh rate, one of the first in the industry.
The Acer Predator Triton 500 packs Intel’s six-core Core i7-8750H processor along with NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 2060 or RTX 2080 with Max-Q into an all-metal chassis featuring a z-height of just 17.9 mm. The system can be further equipped with 16 GB or 32 GB of DDR4 memory, up to two 512 GB PCIe 3.0 x4 SSDs in RAID 0 mode for ultimate storage performance, and all the other things that you come to expect from a gaming-grade laptop.
In a bid to make the Predator Triton 500 even more appealing to demanding gamers and esports professionals, Acer will offer it with a Full-HD display featuring a 300 Hz refresh rate as well as a 3 ms GtG response time. This LCD will of course cost a premium and will consume a lot of power, but since it is aimed at gamers requiring ultimate experience and performance, these are not the primary concerns.
Acer has not disclosed exact configurations of the Predator Triton 500 with a 300 Hz display or their prices, but it is natural to expect the laptop to use the fastest GPU possible in a bid to take advantage of the extremely fast LCD.
