85% Acer Predator Helios 300 review (2019 PH317-53 17-inch model – Core i7, RTX 2060)
Source: Ultrabook Review English
Acer did an excellent job with this redesigned 17-inch Predator Helios 300, creating a new laptop from scratch, with a smaller form-factor, latest generation hardware and most of the modern features potential buyers expect in a gaming computer in 2019, just like with the smaller 15-inch variant. This one performs even better, runs cooler and includes better speakers and a brighter screen, but it's also chunkier and heavier, given it's a 17-incher, and still lacks certain traits some might want in a versatile all-day computer, like TB3, a card-reader, a cleaner design or longer battery life.

82.7% 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.

Acer Predator Helios 300 17 (2019, PH317-53) review – does it satisfy the high expectations?
Source: Laptop Media English
All-in-all Helios 300 17 2019 is a nice upgrade over the last year model. Aside from the obvious visual overhaul, the laptop now features the latest and greatest from Intel in the form of Core i5-9300H and Core i7-9750H as well as up to NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070. Something that speaks enough of the overall thermal performance of the machine.

Source: Ultrabook Review English
All in all, the 2019 Predator Helios 300 is a much-awaited update of one of the most popular mid-tier gaming devices of the last years. The previous generation has always had a price advantage on its side, though, and if that applies to the updated generation, I would expect the Helios 300 PH315-52 models to become just as popular, if not more. That wraps up our review of the Acer Predator Helios PH31-52, but the comments section down below is open for your questions, suggestions, and feedback, so don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Acer Predator Helios 300 Review
Source: Hardware Zone English
In other departments, though, the Acer’s budget catches up with it. The exterior looks decent, but it’s chunky and only has mediocre build quality – the Asus is better here. Both laptops have soft keyboards and poor battery life.

Comment

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.


These graphics cards are able to play the latest and most demanding games in high resolutions and full detail settings with enabled Anti-Aliasing.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 (Laptop): Mid range to high end laptop graphics card based on the Turing architecture with raytracing features and 1,920 shaders. Compared to the similar named desktop card it offers reduced clock rates.NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 (Laptop): High-End laptop graphics card based on the TU106 chip with 2,304 shaders and 8 GB GDDR6 VRAM. Compared to the desktop variant, the GPU is clocked lower.With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti (Laptop): 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.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  

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++). Intel Core i5:

9300H: On Coffee Lake architecture based processor for big and heavy laptops. Integrates four processor cores clocked at 2.4 - 4.1 GHz (4 GHz with 4 cores) that support HyperThreading. Manufactured in an improved 14nm process (14nm++).
» 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.

2.9 kg:

This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.


84.78%: 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.» Further information can be found in our Notebook Purchase Guide.
