KUALA LUMPUR: Acer announced its new Predator Triton 500 and Acer Nitro 5 gaming notebooks. Alongside significant 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.

“In addition to the latest processors and GPUs, we’ve made exciting across-the-board updates to the Predator Triton 500 and Acer Nitro 5 this year,” said James Lin, General Manager,

Notebooks, IT Products Business at Acer.

“Most importantly we’ve applied new thermal technology which keeps the devices cool so gamers can enjoy the performance improvements from the latest silicon technology.”

PREDATOR TRITON 500

Powered by the latest 10 th Gen Intel Core processors with 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.

Backing up that power is the 7.5 hours of battery life, making the notebook an excellent choice for working professionals who want to play, too.

Its industry-leading 300Hz IPS 3 panel with a 3ms overdrive response time displays promise smooth and vivid detail, covering 100 per cent of the sRGB color gamut while supporting wide-angle views.

The NVIDIA G-SYNC technology eliminates tearing and minimises lag.

The Predator Triton 500 comes with a Killer Wi-Fi 6 AX1650i wireless controller, E3100G ethernet controller and Control Centre 2.0 to push network connection quality up to new levels,

ensuring speed-critical applications get bandwidth priority.

All this power is packed into a thin 17.9mm and weighing 2.1kg in an all-metal chassis that features narrow bezels and an 81 per cent screen-to-body ratio.

The notebook has up to 32 GB of DDR4 memory and up to 2 TB of NVMe, RAID 0 SSD storage.

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 also 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. The notebook also has five heat pipes making it 33 per cent better thermal performance than its 2019 counterpart 5 .

ACER NITRO 5

The Acer Nitro 5 comes with up to a 10 th Gen Intel Core i7 processor delivering 5GHz and

graphics options of a GeForce RTX 2060 or the latest GeForce GTX 1650Ti or 1650 GPUs.

It comes with up to two M.2 PCle SSDs and a 1 TB HDD for storage, and up to 32GB of DD4R4 RAM in two user-upgradeable DIMM slots.

Available with a 15.6-inch FHD IPS display, gamers will particularly appreciate the 2020 model’s significantly improved visuals.

The Acer Nitro 5 comes with several innovative thermal solutions in order to maximise cooling efficiency even under heavy loads. It features a dual-fan cooling system that takes advantage of strategically placed intake/exhaust ports and four heat vents to achieve an overall 25 per cent improvement in thermal performance over the 2019 model.

This is further optimised by CoolBoost technology capable of increasing fan speed by 10 per cent and CPU/GPU cooling by 9 per cent.

New to this year’s model, Intel Wi-Fi 6 AX201 and Killer Ethernet E2600 increase network stability and performance, enabling gamers to take full advantage of these thermal improvements.
