Against the background of the announcement of the new Comet Lake-H mobile processors, as well as NVIDIA RTX SUPER mobile graphics, along with other Acer companies, it announced the update of two models of its laptops: the Predator Triton 500, the price of which we were surprised last year, as well as Nitro 5, more a detailed meeting with which we have occurred relatively recently.
In the unchanged metal case of the Predator Triton 500 with a thickness of only 17.9 mm, Acer tried to push as much power as possible. Therefore, the updated base model is based on the Intel Core i7-10750H processor and will be equipped with a graphics subsystem up to the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER Max-Q.
The portable gaming machine will be able to offer up to 32 GB of DDR4 RAM, as well as a RAID 0 array of NVMe SSDs with a total capacity of up to 2 TB. At the same time, all versions of the laptop use IPS displays with a refresh rate of 300 Hz, a response time of 3 ms and support for G-SYNC technology.
Separately, it is worth highlighting the new Vortex Flow cooling system, which in the updated model of the Predator Triton 500 laptop is “33 percent more efficient than the one used in the 2019 model.” At least that’s what the manufacturer promises.
The basic version of the updated Acer Nitro 5 is equipped with an Intel Core i5-10300H processor, but if you wish, you can choose a more productive solution, up to the Intel Core i7 of the same 10th generation. In addition, the new product can offer up to 32 GB of RAM standard DDR4, as well as a discrete graphics subsystem up to NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060.
As a storage system will offer options with a hard drive or SSD-drive. For example, you can choose the option with a solid-state drive up to 512 GB or a hard drive up to 1 TB.
There are two options for the screen: both use an IPS matrix, both have a 3 ms response, but one has a refresh rate of 120 Hz and the other has 144 Hz.
The Acer Nitro 5 cooling system has also been updated. According to the manufacturer, the fresh model has 25% higher cooling efficiency compared to the previous generation model. As for weight and size, their manufacturer does not indicate. We’ll have to wait until May when the updated version of the laptop goes on sale.
The price of the updated Predator Triton 500 model will start at $ 2,600. For the younger brother, Acer Nitro 5 will be asked from $ 750.
