Reviews for the Acer Predator Helios 300 PH315-52-79TY

82.1% Acer Predator Helios 300 Laptop Review: A modern gaming laptop with a Turing GPU | Notebookcheck
The Predator series is well known for its gaming devices, with Acer selling more than just laptops under its gaming sub-brand. While the company continues to sell Predator-branded accessories, it has overhauled the design and internals of its latest Predator Helios laptop. The Helios 300 should make for a compelling midrange gaming laptop, but our tests will reveal whether that is the case or not.
Acer Predator Helios 300 15 (2019) – worth every cent
Source: Laptop Media English
Today we had a look at probably the best allrounder in the mid-tier gaming laptops. It has a great form factor – something that is neither too thin for you to be extremely careful with it, nor it is too bulky that will impede the portability of the laptop. In addition to the great form factor, the laptop embodies an aluminum-plastic combo that makes it even more appealing.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Mobile: Mid range dedicated graphics card for laptops based on the desktop GTX 1660 Ti and therefore the Turing architecture without raytracing and Tensor cores. The performance of the Max-P variant should be similar to an older GTX 1070.

With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


i7-9750H: On Coffee Lake architecture based processor for big and heavy laptops. Integrates six processor cores clocked at 2.6 - 4.5 GHz (4 GHz with 6 cores) that support HyperThreading. Manufactured in an improved 14nm process (14nm++). » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


15.6":

15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.311 kg:

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.


Acer: The company was founded under the name of Multitech in Taiwan in 1976 and renamed to Acer or Acer Group in 1987. The product range includes, for example, laptops, tablets, smartphones, desktops, monitors and televisions. Gateway Inc. and Packard Bell also belong to the Group and sell their own laptops.

While Acer still had the third largest global market share in the notebook segment in 2008, it ranked 6th in 2016 with a market share of 6% after they had continuously lost market shares.

There are dozens of Acer laptop reviews per month, the ratings are average (as of 2016). Gateway, which has an own laptop line-up, has also belonged to the Acer Group since 2007.


80.7%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
