Reviews for the Acer Predator Helios 300 PH317-55-70YF

73% Acer Predator Helios 300 2021 Review – Valuable Power
Source: Pokde English
The Acer Predator Helios 300 2021 brings a healthy update to its hardware, coming in more powerful as ever with some minor improvements here and there. If you are using a previous generation model or a different laptop with similar hardware like a 9th or 10th Gen Intel Core CPU and NVIDIA RTX 20-series GPU, there’s really no need to upgrade but if it’s any older, it’s worth considering, especially with an attractive price of RM8,999.

Acer Predator Helios 300 (PH317-55) review – undermining the Helios 700
Source: Laptop Media English
Now, we have two things to say. First of all, the performance in the gaming tests could have been better, if we were able to find a configuration that comes with dual-channel memory. On the other hand, we didn’t find any MUX switch settings, so you will definitely get better performance when you are connected to an external monitor. Generally speaking, we can’t say that this unit is the best on the market. In terms of performance for the hardware (especially in games), it might not even be in the top 3. However, you have to keep its price in mind. Given the fact that no laptop is perfect, you have to set your priorities straight before you even look for anything, and if it happens to match your standards – go for it. In this case, the Helios 300 has a lot of great competitors, like the ROG Strix G17 G713 we mentioned, as well as the slightly smaller Lenovo Legion 5 Pro 16, and Legion 7 (16″).
