83.8% Acer Predator Helios 300 PH315-53 in review: Update provides for (slightly) more RTX 3070 power | Notebookcheck
The Predator offers a Core i7 CPU, a GeForce RTX 3070 laptop GPU, 16 GB of RAM, and space for three drives (2x M.2 SSD, 1x 2.5-inch). This is complemented by a responsive Full HD display (IPS, 240 Hz) and quite good battery life. The laptop heats up considerably under load, though.
70% Acer Predator Helios 300 (2021) review: Budget price sacrifices battery life
Source: Laptop Mag English
The Acer Predator Helios 300 offers its user powerful performance paired with a colorful display and a comfortable keyboard. But it might be tough to hand over $1,699 when you’re getting short battery life and crappy speakers. Our advice? Save yourself some money and go with the Strix G15 Advantage ($1,549 - $1,699), which offers over 10 hours of battery life and a more powerful CPU. However, you’ll be missing out on the Predator’s more colorful display and slightly stronger GPU. The Predator Helios 300 is a solid gaming laptop, and is worth considering as long as you’re okay with the poor runtimes and audio.

The Helios 300's ace in the hole is its $1,349 base model, which is still more than capable of 1080p gaming thanks to its GeForce RTX 3060. Its partial metal design, good port selection, and nifty one-button overclocking help it stand out against rivals at that price level. A fine choice, the Predator Helios 300 once again takes our Editors' Choice award among midrange 15.6-inch gamers, while Alienware, with its similarly "modern classic" m15, holds the high ground.

Source: Reviewed.com English
Acer’s Predator Helios 300 comes in a variety of configurations at multiple price points. I favorably reviewed last year’s entry, but the model I tested had a price tag of just $1,199. This new RTX 3070-powered Helios 300 is priced at $1,699, which pits it against serious competition. Alienware’s m15 R4 is currently available with similar hardware for about $1,750 on Dell’s official website, while Razer’s Blade 15 is $1,999, again with similar hardware. These laptops are well worth a small increase in price. Then there’s the deep breath Asus ROG Strix G15 AMD Advantage Edition which, despite its long-winded name, can beat the Helios 300’s performance when ray tracing isn’t a concern.

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.


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

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 Mobile: 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.
