Thin and Lightweight Predator Triton 300 Provides the Right Mix of Size and Power

The Predator Triton 300 is the newest addition to the thin and lightweight Triton line, powered by Windows 10. It is a perfect blend of performance and features, all wrapped up in a slim design for a compelling value. Just 2.3 kg (5.07 pounds), its aluminum chassis features the same subdued matte black design highlighted with blue lights and accents found on other Predator notebooks.

Up to a 9th Gen Intel® Core i7 Processor is paired with an NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1650 GPU, and 16 GB of DDR4 2666Hz memory (upgradable to 32 GB). For massive amounts of game storage, it will support up to two 1 TB PCIe NVMe SSDs in RAID 0 and up to a 2 TB hard drive. Killer Wi-Fi 6 AX 1650 along with Killer Ethernet keeps the action moving quickly and lag-free.

A bright 15.6-inch Full HD IPS[i] display with a narrow bezel design includes a 144 Hz refresh rate and 3 ms overdrive response time, delivering realistic graphics and colors that pop, highlight every detail and bring games to life. Immersive audio is delivered with Waves Nx®, which uses state-of-the-art physical modeling to deliver a realistic and convincing listening experience by virtually mimicking the immersion of ultra-high-end speakers in a perfect acoustically-treated space.

The keyboard includes zoned RGB lighting and dedicated Turbo and Predator Sense keys. In addition, the WASD, arrow and dedicated keys are concave shaped and transparent for ease-of-use.

The Predator Triton 300 also features the superior thermal design found on all Predator notebooks, including dual fans with Acer’s 4th Gen AeroBlade 3D metal fan technology, CoolBoost technology and strategically placed air intake and exhaust vents.

 

 

The Predator Triton 500 Is Now Available with a Blazing-Fast 300Hz Display

Now with a blazing-fast 300 Hz 15.6-inch Full HD display, the Predator Triton 500 is a powerful gaming notebook slimmed down to just 17.9 mm (0.70 inches) thin and weighing 2.1 kg (4.6 pounds). It has a durable, all-metal chassis and narrow bezels measuring just 6.3 mm (0.25 inches) for an impressive 81% body-to-screen ratio. The slim Triton 500 can easily be slipped in a backpack or briefcase, but once taken out and powered on, it takes advantage of the performance of up to a 9th Gen Intel Core i7 processor to become a gaming powerhouse.

The Predator Thronos Air Gaming Chair – Acer’s Newest Gaming Cave

The Predator Thronos Air, Acer’s newest gaming “chair,” is a sleek gaming cave for hard core enthusiasts. The steel structure includes a chair, modular desk and monitor arm. It envelops the gamer in a comfortable and encasing cockpit, ideal for total and complete battle immersion. Teal blue lighting emits a soft cool glow, perfect for gaming.

The chair can be adjusted to various angles (130 degrees inside cabin and 180 degrees outside the cabin) for maximum comfort. It even includes a massage function, so gamers can relax after intense gaming sessions. The desk includes an adjustable keyboard and mouse tray, ensuring comfortable typing regardless of seating angle. A foot rest keeps feet elevated.

Capable of supporting up to three displays, the monitor arm can be manually raised and lowered with a handle conveniently located right below the middle monitor stand. In addition, a camera can be positioned right above the middle monitor, making it easy to live stream the action to YouTube, Twitch or Mixer.

To keep the area neat and organized, a platform for a powerful gaming PC is located behind the chair, and a cable management system neatly stores cords and wires out of the way. In addition, Acer offers numerous customization options and upgrades, such as a seat stabilizer to prevent the chair from moving around during game sessions, a cup holder, a headset holder, a USB hub, and a camera.
