Reviews for the Acer Predator Helios 700 PH717-71-92A7
It's also big, heavy, and doesn't get great battery life, but that's the cost of having this much power. Games look and play great, with real-time ray tracing and DLSS coming from Nvidia's RTX GPUs, the high refresh rate, and the power of overclocking already powerful internals.
