The new Predator Helios 300 comes with everything gamers need to conquer the competition, starting with up to the latest 11th Gen Intel Core H-series processors, an NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 3070 Laptop GPU and up to 32 GB of DDR4 RAM. All of this power is supported by Acer’s 5th Gen AeroBlade™ 3D Fan. The 17-inch model further includes Acer’s Vortex Flow Design concept, a strategically organized cooling layout designed to generate aerodynamic flows to enhance cooling on the CPU and GPU, and additionally lower the chassis’ skin temperature.
This power manifests on one of two display options: a blisteringly fast 360 hz FHD panel or a truly beautiful 165 Hz QHD one. Both boast a 3 ms overdrive response, so kicking either panel into high gear is a seamless experience with minimal ghosting. These good looks extend to the keyboard, which has been equipped with 4 RGB zones and see-through concave-shaped caps on the WASD keys. Deviating from a standard keyboard, this notebook also comes with a Turbo key for instant overclocking and a PredatorSense™ key that opens Predator’s custom utility app for monitoring or overclocking the system, customizing all of that RGB, and more.
The notebook includes an Intel® Killer™ E2600 ethernet controller, Intel® Killer™ Wi-FI 6 AX1650i and Control Center 2.0 for low latencies and a more reliable connection, plus DTS:X Ultra. The notebook also offers a full range of USB 3.2 ports, including the incredibly fast Thunderbolt™ 4 USB-C with support for DisplayPort functionality and power delivery. An HDMI 2.1 port is also included, allowing gamers to easily connect to an external monitor. As a final touch, a 2TB HDD provides plenty of space for all of the games in a user’s library.
This generation of the Nitro 5 packs a serious punch, boasting up to the latest 11th Gen Intel Core H-series processor, an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Series Laptop GPU and 32 GB of DDR4 RAM. These powerful specs propel the notebook’s 15.6- (AN515-57) or 17.3-inch (AN517-54) QHD IPS display to a 165 Hz refresh rate with a 3 ms response time, while an 80% screen-to-body ratio lets players see more of the action and less of the bezels. In addition to speed, the Nitro 5 also goes big on storage: a pair of M.2 PCIe / SATA SSDs slots offer up to a massive 1 TB Raid 0 SSD or 2 TB HDD of memory so players can keep all of their games, movies and stream footage on hand.
A variety of custom Acer technology works to keep that hardware running as cool as possible—Acer Coolboost™ technology, dual-fans, a strategically placed air intake and an exhaust with four vents—allowing for a 10% improvement in fan speed and a 9% increase in CPU/GPU cooling when compared to auto mode. For situations where not as much power is needed, a dedicated NitroSense key gives users the ability to monitor system performance, select from preset cooling modes or customize their own, plus access a variety of other system tweaks like LCD overdrive or Acer TrueHarmony’s™ six different sound modes.
The Acer Nitro 5 package is topped off with a few fun features and convenient touches. Four-zone RGB lets users take command of the keyboard, which offers 1.6 mm of travel on each key, and an all-black Precision Touchpad. The notebook also comes with a host of connectivity options, including an RJ45 and HDMI 2.1 port, a USB 3.2 Gen 2 port and two Gen 1 ports, plus a USB Type-C™ (Thunderbolt™ 4) port. As a final small touch, the charging port has been moved to the pack of the device for a cleaner, more organized look.
