Predator Triton 500 SE (2022)
The Predator Triton 500 SE (PT516-52s) is a gaming and work laptop with a “special edition” design. The device is powered by an Intel Core i9 processor, an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Laptop GPU, with 32 GB of 5200 MHz LPDDR5 RAM and up to 2TB of high-speed PCIe Gen4 storage provides plenty of room for games and data.
The laptop has a WQXGA 16-inch display with 2,560×1,600 pixels of resolution, a 240Hz refresh rate, and a reaction time of up to three milliseconds. The display also offers 500 nits of brightness, 100 percent DCI-P3 colour gamut coverage. Additionally, it offers a 16:10 aspect ratio, as well as Nvidia G-Sync frame synchronisation technology.
The laptop has a triple-fan setup, with two 5th Gen AeroBlade 3D fans, each with 89 metal blades. Acer’s Vortex Flow technology directs the airflow generated by those fans to vital components, while strategically placed thermal foam, liquid-metal thermal grease on the CPU, and four heat pipes increase cooling even further. This means that users won’t be feeling the heat while making the most of the long battery life granted by the laptop’s large 99.98 Wh battery.
The laptop comes preloaded with Windows 11 and includes a complete complement of USB 3.2 Gen2 connections, including two Thunderbolt 4 Type-C connectors with support for DisplayPort and power supply, as well as an HDMI 2.1 port that allows users to connect to an external monitor for 4K@120 Hz. An Intel Killer E3100G 2.5G Ethernet Controller, Intel Killer Wi-Fi 6E 1675, and Control Center 2.0 round out the package by providing users with lightning-fast connectivity.
Predator Helios 300 (2022)

The laptop features a 5.6-inch QHD (2560 x 1440) IPS display with a 165 Hz refresh rate.
A dual-fan setup with one 5th Gen AeroBlade 3D fan, as well as liquid metal thermal grease and Acer’s CoolBoost technology, helps keep the system cool. Users may manage fan speed via four preset operating modes with a single push of the built-in PredatorSense button, while a single press of the built-in Turbo key immediately maxes out these settings. The laptop’s mini-LED backlit keyboard has per-key RGB illumination. An HDMI 2.1 port, a Thunderbolt Type-C port, and two USB 3.2 Gen 2 ports are included on the Acer Predator Helios 300 (2022). Even when the laptop is switched off, you may use one of the USB ports to charge your mobile device.

It also has Windows 11 and a new chassis with dual-fan cooling, an intake on the top and bottom of the chassis, and four exhaust ports. According to the company the laptop’s utility tool, a built-in software solution that also allows users to overclock their CPU/GPU and personalise the 4-zone RGB keyboard’s illumination, allows users to alter fan speeds if they require more or less cooling power.
Users who wish to experiment with headphones or other peripherals will like the Nitro 5’s complete variety of ports, which include HDMI 2.1 and USB 3.2 Gen 1 and Gen 2 compatibility. A Thunderbolt 4 Type-C connector is included in the Intel-powered variant. USB 4 is included in the AMD-powered model.
