The I<em>FA 2019<\/em> has hardly begun, but already, the \u2018world\u2019s first\u2019 wars are getting intense. Taiwanese manufacturer Asus boasted about having the world\u2019s first 300Hz laptop \u2013 the <em>Asus ROG Zephyrus S GX701.<\/em>\r\n\r\nBut then, their American counterparts Acer had already unleashed an upgrade of the <em>Acer Predator Triton 500<\/em>, which also sports a 300Hz display.\r\n\r\nhttps:\/\/twitter.com\/PredatorGaming\/status\/1169530360180498433\r\n\r\nThe new <em>Acer Predator Triton 500<\/em> comes with a <em>15.6-inch FHD IPS<\/em> Panel for <em>1080p gaming<\/em>. The 300Hz refresh rate and 3ms response time make it an excellent deal for games that require accuracy and precise action. The <em>NVIDIA\u00ae G-SYNC\u00ae<\/em> compatibility, on the other hand, guarantees smooth gameplay without screen tearing, stuttering, or motion blur.\r\n\r\nMuch of the design is owed to the original Predator Triton 500. Covered in an abyssal black metal finish, the new Triton features a thin 17.9 mm chassis and weighs just 4.6lbs. The LED-lit cover lights up complementing the <em>3-zone RGB<\/em> customized keyboard.\r\n\r\nUnder the hood, Acer has retained the Hexacore <em>9th Gen Intel\u00ae Core\u2122 i7-9750H<\/em> that can hit up to 4.5 GHz. It supports up to <em>32GB DDR4 RAM<\/em> clocked at 2666MHz. For storage, the Triton 500 has two <em>PCIe NVMe SSDs<\/em> in Raid 0, which supports up to 512GB on each bay.\r\n\r\nNow, to get the most out of the 300Hz display, Acer Triton 500 has the revolutionary <em>GeForce RTX\u2122 2080 Max-Q 8GB GDDR6<\/em>. With this GPU, you are guaranteed the fastest, realistic, and AI-enhanced gaming visuals. This GPU also supports <em>Ray-Tracing<\/em>, a technology which brings out the best of the latest AAA titles, for example, <a href="http:\/\/happygamer.com\/505-games-partners-with-female-creators-only-to-introduce-controls-female-protagonist-jesse-faden-23948\/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Control.<\/a>\r\n\r\nDuring those long and intense gaming sessions, cooling is also an important aspect. You can never go wrong with Acer\u2019s <em>4th Gen AeroBlade\u2122 3D Technology<\/em>. It drastically reduces noise while enhancing airflow for efficient cooling.\r\n\r\nWhen it comes to online gaming and streaming, the Killer\u2019s E3000 Controller, Wireless-AC 1550 and Killer Control Center 2.0 guarantee low pings. This ensures you are always on the competitive edge during those adrenaline-filled battles.\r\n\r\nAs for connectivity, the options are unlimited. You get one Mini DisplayPort (mDP), a USB-C\u2122 Thunderbolt\u2122 3 and HDMI. Together with the laptop\u2019s screen, you can set up to four displays to showcase your gaming exploits to those around you.\r\n\r\nUnlike the Zephyrus S whose price is still unknown, Acer has revealed the price of their <em>300Hz Predator Triton 500.<\/em> The slim 15-inch laptop will start from $2800. Regarding availability, Acer says it will be available in the US sometime in December.\r\n\r\nAnd it\u2019s not only the Predator Triton 500 that Acer announced. The American company also introduced the <em>Predator Thronos Air<\/em>, a cheaper version of their original <em>Predator Thronos,<\/em> which has a $20,000 price tag. The new Thronos will go for $14,000, which is still insane. Other announcements include the <em>Predator Triton 300, Nitro XV3 Series<\/em> Monitors, among others.
