Spy.com posted a review of the Helios 700 (PH717-72-75WS), stating it was “the most impressive gaming laptop” the reviewer had ever tested. 

The framerate easily hit triple digits thanks in part to the 700’s screen; the 1080p resolution isn’t as swanky as you’d get from a 4K display, but I’d argue it’s better for actual gameplay, as the 1080p screen, combined with its 114Hz refresh rate and include G-Sync make it so that your overall gaming experience is buttery smooth. I didn’t notice a single dropped frame during the heat of battle in Valhalla.”

He also praised the Predator Helios 700 keyboard stating it was “super easy to take the system’s performance up a notch when you need that extra boost. It’s also just way more comfortable to game with the keyboard extended in this way..” He also liked the grip/feel to the keys and the MagForce keys. If you’re willing to forgo a bit of ease of portability, the Helios 700 yields a truly ‘go big or go home’ experience that gamers are sure to love.”

PUSH EVERY EXTREME

With an overclockable 10th Gen Intel® Core™ i9 Processor[1] and GeForce® RTX 20801 SUPER™ at the helm, finding something it can’t handle becomes a real challenge. Add in enough DDR4 RAM to render 8K videos and a buffet of high-speed storage and you have yourself a game-devouring beast.

SERIOUSLY ADVANCED COOLING

Our 4th Gen AeroBlade™ 3D Fans pull air directly through the top vents when the HyperDrift keyboard is undocked. They’re fast, powerful, and deliver some of the strongest airflow made possible in a laptop and provide essential cooling to other critical cooling components.

OVERPOWERED OVERCLOCKING

Feel like getting some extra fire from your Helios 700? Whether the keyboard is tucked neatly away or slid out, you can give it some extra power. While undocked, choose from the already BOOSTED setting or go all out with the EXTREME model[3]

SPEEDY THUNDERBOLT™ 3

These ports are fast (40Gbps), useful (can be used for single-cable docking) and powerful (provides charging for up to 100W each). So whether you want to transfer a 4K movie in less than 30 seconds, back up a year’s worth of continuous MP3s in five minutes, or connect to any display, Thunderbolt, or USB device – it can do it all.

DESKTOP-CALIBER GAMING PERFORMANCE

Kick your PC into gear with Intel’s 10th Generation processors – now clocking up to 5.3GHz[4] Turbo. With up to 8 cores and 16 threads, it decimates every challenge set before it – so load up the tasks, and see for yourself what this powerhouse is capable of.

LESS LATENCY, MORE VICTORY

With Killer’s E3100G Ethernet Controller, Killer Wi-Fi 6 AX1650i and Control Center 2.0, you have all the tools you need to clear out the online competition. You deserve the low latency and reliable connection that only Killer networks can provide.


HIGH-SPEED DISPLAY


The 144Hz IPS display with NVIDIA® G-SYNC® makes kicking this laptop into high gear a tear-free, seamless experience.
