Acer unveiled two new gaming noteboks, the Predator 900 and the Predator 500. The Predator 900 is a 17-inch notebook with convertible 4K display, on the other hand, the Triton 500 is a 15-inch all metal gaming notebook measuring just 17.9mm thin. These notebooks feature the 8th Gen Intel Core H-series processors along with Acer’s advanced cooling system that includes 4th Gen AeroBlade 3D metal fans that increase airflow by 45 percent, and Coolboost technology that keeps the notebooks cool during extended gaming sessions and while playing demanding AAA titles.
As mentioned, the Predator Triton 900 is a convertible gaming notebook that features a CNC-machined Ezel Aero Hinge that flips, extends, or reclines the 17-inch display. Users can switch between four usage modes: Display mode for sharing the screen with friends during gaming sessions, Ezel mode for playing games on the touch screen, notebook mode for traditional gaming scenarios, and stand mode — effectively turning the Triton 900 into a tablet for gaming or using creator tools. The Triton series 900’s trackpad is placed beside the keyboard, giving users natural hand placement for gaming using both the keyboard and trackpad. The Triton 900 features an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080GPU and a 4K IPS display with NVIDIA G-SYNC technology. The Predator Triton 900 features 8th Gen Intel Core i7 processor, NVMe PCIe RAID 0 SSDs and up to 32GB DDR4 memory.
