84.5% Acer Predator Helios 500 (GTX 1070, i7-8750H) Laptop Review | Notebookcheck
Gaming upgrade. Our exclusive review of Acer's massive fella. Equipped with a 45 W CPU and a GTX 1070 the brand-new case contains a true gaming powerhouse. The Helios 500 is the successor to the Helios 300, and while still quite hefty and bulky the new kid on the block is not as sharp-edged anymore.

Smooth performance and cool running make this a worthy top-end gaming laptop, despite limited portability and a few little flaws. Just keep an eye on battery levels.

Acer Predator Helios 500 PH517-51-93LS

I always question the existence of 17.3 screen gaming laptops. My reason is the mobility. Well, of course when you need to carry a desktop, then you have to carry a monitor as well. This makes more sense for mobile desktop replacements, but you give up your option for upgrades, mostly for processor and GPU. In our case, I have one of the newest Predator models. Equipped with i9 8950HK and 1070 8 GB GPU. Is the rest too important? Well, not much. 32 GB RAM, 4K screen, 512 GB PCIe SSD are just nice touches. Do you know why? Because Nvidia's Turing cards are on the horizon. Will you regret your decision when they arrive? Since you won't be able to change your GPU, in just a few months of time you will be missing out lots of opportunities. It is not because the 1070 GPU is not good. But it is a questionable purchase since a new GPU is coming out, which is especially thought for 4K. In most of today's games the CPU is not the bottleneck, it is actually always the GPU. With the 1070 it is possible to get above 60 fps in 4K, but will it stay that way next year? Okay, enough about GPUs. Overall, everything about this laptop is at top levels. Well, if there was at least a GTX 1080 GPU, it would have been better, but yeah, this is what we have. You can play all the games in high/ultra resolution, maybe some demanding titles will have a hard time running in 4K, but the rest will be no problem. Here comes the deal. This laptop, if it is okay to call this a laptop, is 4 kg. So it is not mobile. Since it is equipped with high-end components, I won't talk about battery life or anything similar. All things considered, I think you can play all games in high details for the next few years. But afterwards, it is a question. Since the Helios 500 doesn't have a Thunderbolt connection or Gen. 2 USB 3.1, external GPUs are out of question. Overall, yeah it is a great gaming laptop. But is it future proof? That is a thing that you need to answer by yourself. Hands-on article by Ümit Yılmaz Güneş

87.7% Acer Predator Helios 500 (GTX 1070, i9-8950HK) Laptop Review | Notebookcheck
This hunk of a laptop enters the second round: We already reviewed the lower-priced version of the Acer Predator Helios 500 not so long ago - now here comes the sequel. Is the expensive high-end version able to convince us? Find out in this detailed review!
Ревю на Acer Predator Helios 500 – истински звяр с Intel Core i9-8950HK
Source: Laptop Mag English
Acer Predator Helios 500 ще промени света на гейминг лаптопите. Не само заради използването на най-новото и най-доброто от Intel в лицето на Core i9-8950HK, но също и заради изключително ефективното охлаждане и невероятен дисплей. Можем да определим Lenovo Legion Y920 и HP Omen 17 като директни конкуренти, защото това устройство също разполага с отключен за овърклок процесор и голям и ефективен термален дизайн. Преди да започнем с хвалбите трябва да отбележим, че по принцип харесваме по-леки и тънки устройства с не толкова агресия във външния вид. Клоним към сливащи се с околната среда устройства. Затова добавихме в сравнението MSI GE73VR.
Positive: Powerful hardware; high performance; backlit keys; nice display. Negative: Heavy and bulky.

If you’re just looking for a monstrous mobile PC gaming machine, this laptop will impress. However, if you’re looking for a more immersive experience, be prepared to shell out more cash for peripherals.

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 GTX 1070 Mobile: Pascal based high-end mobile graphics card based on a cut down GP104 (like the GTX 1080) and GDDR5 graphics memory. Successor to the GTX 980M with a 10 Watts higher TDP. Similar to the desktop GTX 1070 performance wise, but with more shaders and lower clock speeds.
