The Acer Predator Helios 500 also includes Acer PowerGem, a custom-engineered technology made from a metal-alloy polymer that sits on top of the CPU and serves to distribute the heat it generates throughout the device.

Users can activate the Predator Pulsar and customise the light cluster with PredatorSense to customise their keyboard with per-key RGB backlighting. Acer’s patented MagForce keys, which both feature a MagTek mechanical switch to turn the keypress function into a joystick mechanism, can be added to the WASD key assembly.
